How Does Hypnotherapy Help

The exact triggering cause of painful obstructive IBS and how it started is unclear; it however, may be caused by the increased deficit or disturbed nervous signals between the gut and the brain from eating certain foods or drinks. In other words, the smooth muscles of the intestinal wall can become reactive thus alter the normal or average pattern of muscle contraction activity or process. This then leads to a noticed cascade of IBS symptoms which may change from minor discomfort to severe sickness in the gut. In addition, the brain can also study and thus misinterpret the normal signals from the gut as irregular signals. While there are no exact type of medications, treatments or practices to cure IBS, hypnotherapy has helped to improve the clinical symptoms and management of IBS. By focusing on the brain-gut axis, hypnotherapy masterclass for IBS involves progressive relaxation, and then suggestions of soothing imagery and sensations focused on the individual’s symptoms. During the hypnotherapy session, our hypnotherapists will guide the patient to practice entering a state of deep psychological relaxation who later becomes more mindful of own mind and body when the triggers take place. Customizable to symptoms experienced by individual patients, our hypnotherapists will guide the patient to a wonderful imaginary setting to ensure a successful outcome and avoid excessive discomfort. You can be asked to pay a high level of attention to visualize a number of images that allow you to be comfortable and at ease. These soothing images can be those of nature that often calm and relief the nerves. Likewise, patients sometimes can be asked to visualize their gut as smooth, functional and beautiful passages whereby foods can pass through smoothly without any blockages. This routine can be done every time the symptoms appear. You may also hear reassurance in the scripts as you don’t have to stay perfect in visualizing but just to experience what you can in order for the therapy to be effective. The script throughout the hypnotherapy does not function to completely address symptoms directly from the trigger. Instead, our hypnotherapists will describe your goal accompanied by frequent positive suggestions, such as “you become more comfortable and healthy everyday”. This is served to retrain the brain and thus finally soothe the brain-gut miscommunication in a short term to improve your health. Improvements in overall well-being levels, quality of life, abdominal pain, constipation, diarrhea, and bloating have been noted through hypnotherapy for IBS.
