The human brain: In traumatic situations (after a car accident) people report that they did not feel pain, until help arrived. The unconscious brain goes into action and numbs the pain, possibly to insure survival as much as possible. Hypnosis activates this unconscious mechanism in helping people manage chronic pain. It can be used for migraines, back pain and dental work.
