The greatest opponent a martial artist will face is pain. This pain might manifest itself in the form of a traumatic injury or in the chronic aches and pains that come with such a highly physical activity. Whether a martial artist can continue his practice may be determined by his ability to cope with injuries and to heal quickly. InBlack Belt Healing, David Nelson uses both his training as a martial artist and his years of incorporating hypnotism as therapy for dealing with painful injuries into a how-to guide for martial artists. Using the layout of a dojo as a metaphor for the workings of the mind, Nelson explains how hypnotism can help a martial artist deal effectively with chronic or severe pain and the weapons that are readily available to anyone for fighting the negative energies of pain.Black Belt Healingalso provides a series of self-guided trances that will help the martial artist invoke their own healing abilities, allowing them to return to the dojo and continue to practice their chosen martial arts discipline.
