Hypnosis Center of Eau Claire

25 years of pain gone in 20 minutes - Pam's Story

I have been a chronic migraine headache sufferer since 1990.....25 long years without finding any form of effective relief. That’s not to say I didn’t try different recommended methods of treating them. Early on I tried every migraine treatment protocol my doctors recommended including pain medications and bio-feedback. When that didn’t work I moved on to acupuncture, chiropractic adjustments, and even Botox injections long before they were approved for migraine pain management. The end result was always the same. Nothing worked to alleviate my pain. My headaches became so bad that I had to quit my job. What used to be “normal” for me became anything but. I couldn’t make plans because I never knew if I would be able to keep them. I was relegated to the confines of my home each day.

Recently a long-time family friend suggested hypnosis as a way of coping with my migraines. This was something I had never given a thought to but seeing everything else I had tried failed, I was willing to check this out. After waking up with another severe migraine, I called and set up a 2 hour appointment with Richard Marano of the Hypnosis Center of Eau Claire. I have to admit that I was a bit skeptical about this but after I met Richard, I felt totally at ease. He seemed so kind and considerate and I felt he was someone I could feel safe with even though my head throbbed as I spoke with him.

At the end of our session, my headache was gone! Later that evening my headache was still gone and when I awoke the next morning, it was still not there. It continued that way for the first 4 days but then small headaches resurfaced on the 5th and 6th days that I was able to successfully treat with Ibuprofen. This is nothing short of a miracle! I have my life back! I am so grateful for Mr. Marano and what he was able to do for me after so many other courses of treatment failed.

Throughout this long 25 year ordeal I have prayed for a way to deal with these debilitating migraines and hypnosis has provided me with that hope. Each headache- free moment I now have is indeed a blessing as is Mr. Marano. I am a new person because of him!
