RETHINKING PAIN

PRACTICAL AND SMART ADVICE TO DEAL WITH PAIN

About

My name is Davide Lanfranco and I am an italian physiotherapist and hypnotherapist working in London.

My biggest interest is pain (acute and chronic) and anything related to it. In my daily practice I deal with several people struggling every day against acute or chronic pain.

My personal approach to pain is composed by different techniques in order to provide an holistic treament specifically tailored to help you. Pain is due to several factors and would be shallow to reduce it just to joints, muscles, ligaments, organs etc. Pain is also mind, emotions, mood and it needs a multifactorial approach to it based on several techniques like physiotherapy, hypnosis, self-hypnosis, meditation etc.

I graduated with honors in physiotherapy and I got a master degree in osteopathic techniques. My approach was essentially structural and “body related” until I met a colleague of mine who opened up my mind to hypnosis.

Having the honour to study with one of the most famous and capable colleague in italy (Dr Giancarlo Russo) in the field of physiotherapy and hynosis, made me realised that there is much more than bones and muscles. There is an entire world hidden inside ourself able to make us miserable and able to make our life better. A kind of inner pharmacy always available to be used.
