What can be done with hypnotherapy?
"Anxiety is the dizziness of freedom"
Hypnotherapy can reduce the fear and anxiety that some people feel before medical or dental procedures. For example, hypnosis may improve recovery time and reduce the pain and anxiety after surgery. Generally, clinical studies show that using hypnosis may reduce your need for medication, reduce your recovery time and improve both your physical and mental condition before an operation.
A hypnotherapist is able to teach you how to regulate pain. For example, someone with a backache may learn to minimize the pain felt just as they would lower the volume on a stereo. Self-hypnosis can be used to relax, to fall asleep, or to boost your energy in 20 minutes.
Clinical studies were performed on children in emergency in emergency treatment centers, and the results proved hypnotherapy reduces fear, anxiety and discomfort throughout.
Hypnotherapy works well for:
- fear of the dark, stage fright, fear of heights
- addictions (cigarettes, alcool, internet...)
- stress before tests or exams
- relationship issues
- higher self-confidence or self-esteem
