Growing numbers of people are finding great relief from stress and anxiety through hypnotherapy. Stress is often referred to as the silent killer and for good reason. Stress can wreak havoc on the immune system and is the number one cause of many ailments and diseases, such as depression, fatigue, headaches, back aches, high blood pressure, heart disease, obesity, and diabetes. Even though advances in technology help to automate many tasks in order to make things easier and thus creating more efficiency, this hasn’t helped improve quality of life, since we are now expected to accomplish even more. Most people today face heavy pressure to accomplish a whole lot in a small amount of time, in the workplace and at home, which only adds to the pressures and stressors of life, but at what cost?
Findings from a large population based study suggest that even mild stress is linked to long-term disability. Stress affects not just the mind, but the body and the spirit. Those suffering from stress often turn to short-term solutions for relief, such as smoking, drinking, and energy drinks, but these things lead to even worse medical complications, further compounding the whole situation.
How does hypnotherapy work to reduce stress?
Most people are stressed due to their perceptions of the world and themselves. Oftentimes, these perceptions lead to unrealistic expectations. When those expectations aren’t being met, it causes great anxiety. In order to eliminate the unnecessary stress, hypnotherapy helps to identify the perceptions that are leading to the stress and then replaces that perception with a new, more realistic one. Those who undergo hypnotherapy for stress step away with a fresh new perspective and outlook in life, which helps them to better able to succeed. When we are stressed, it’s more difficult for us to think clearly and our perception becomes even more skewed. Regular hypnotherapy sessions help to combat these harmful perceptions and also result in better health. Therefore, hypnotherapy serves quite well as a preventative measure. It’s far better to remain in good health, than to have to fight to get good health back.
Stress management hypnosis can take many forms, such as one-on-one hypnotherapy sessions, guided meditations, self-hypnosis, and customised hypnotherapy audio files. Professional hypnotherapists help develop personalised stress management plans for each individual for maximum effectiveness.
Some of the benefits of stress management hypnotherapy include:
- Reduced stress and anxiety
- Feeling more relaxed and at peace
- Clarity of thought
- Improved sleep
- Increased energy
- Healthy appetite
- Improved focus and concentration
- Positive outlook on life
- Improved overall health
Those who have turned to hypnosis as a stress management tool have reported great improvement in their quality of life. Their thoughts are no longer centred on the negative and the stress management hypnotherapy provides them invaluable resources to deal with daily stressors. Rather than turning to dangerous chemical cocktails of the pharmaceutical industry or other methods that merely mask the symptoms and have negative impact on health, clients who utilise hypnotherapy can get to the root cause of their issues, which leads to lasting solutions in a healthy and positive manner. Not just for stress management, hypnotherapy can help with a myriad of other issues, such as breaking bad habits, overcoming past traumas, letting go of unnecessary fears and phobias, weight management, smoking cessation and more.
Hypnotherapy for stress management and other issues is a healthy treatment modality that won’t cause negative side effects. Because hypnotherapy works with the subconscious, it has a synergistic effect on other areas of life, making it more of a holistic approach.
