By Eli Bliliuos
Imagine a noninvasive way to help you gain control over your body and mind, reduce pain, and lessen anxiety? That’s exactly what hypnotherapy is here to help you do. It’s a clinical procedure that brings you into full control over your physical and mental health with a wide array of health benefits that could help bring you deeper sleep, help with stomach ailments, lessen anxiety, control pain, and end hot flashes. When paired with the guidance of a clinician and their professional expertise, you’ll reap the benefits of hypnotherapy and help take control of many different areas of your life that you’re looking to improve.
Benefits of Hypnotherapy – Sleep Quality
Hypnotherapy is especially beneficial for those of you who suffer with insomnia. By relaxing your mind through a hypnotic suggestion tape before bed, it puts you into a calm state and into a deep, slow-wave sleep so that you end up getting a deeper and more restorative rest. Studies have found that women spent 80 percent more time in this restorative sleep after listening to the tape than listening to a hypnotic recording. It can also help with those of you who suffer from sleepwalking, as it can help train you to wake yourself up when you start to sleepwalk.
Hypnotherapy is especially effective if you suffer from anxiety induced by a health condition or struggle with a phobia. It can also help ease any anxiety that comes with surgery by adjusting your expectations of pain and fear to minimize your anxiety towards the situation. Hypnotherapy will put you into a relaxed state that will help you face your phobias or fears with a new perspective. You’ll experience slower breathing and lower blood pressure, making it one of the best health benefits of hypnotherapy that you can experience.
Control Pain and Health
If you suffer from pain, especially pain from surgery, cancer, fibromyalgia, or sickle cell disease, hypnotherapy may bring you relief. By helping you gain control over your outlook of pain, you’ll experience relief for long periods of time. It can also help you take control of your health by helping you quit smoking. If you’re someone who truly wants to quit smoking, then using hypnosis in a clinical setting, with a certified consulting hypnotist, helps reset your subconscious towards desiring more healthy habits and quitting cigarettes. It also helps with controlling your mind to dislike the undesirable effects of smoking, like having a foul taste in your mouth.
Relieve IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome) Symptoms
Hypnosis brings you into a relaxed state of mind, which can help ease symptoms of IBS. With IBS, many people experience pain from diarrhea, constipation, and bloating. With hypnosis, you’re able to better combat your symptoms and relieve yourself from the nausea, fatigue, and back pain that comes with IBS. A study found that 71 percent of IBS patients found relief from their symptoms after 12 weeks of hypnosis sessions for one hour, and 81 percent found relief for up to six years after.
End Hot Flashes
In women that experience hot flashes during menopause, several hypnosis sessions with a certified hypnotist, over the course of several months, can help quell hot flashes. This, when combined with sessions with a professional and trained clinician, help reduce the suffering that comes with hot flashes.
Through these various relaxation techniques that come with hypnotherapy, you’ll be able to gain control of your life in a variety of ways and tackle health problems that were unsolved through other ways of healing.
