For IBS, one of hypnotherapy's greatest benefits could be its well-established ability to reduce the effects of stress. Your state of mind can have a direct impact on your physical well-being, even when you are in the best of health.
If a person is struggling with IBS, the tension, anxiety, and depression that comes from living with such a condition can actually undermine the defensive abilities of the immune system and further compromise basic health. Hypnotherapy can reduce this stress and its negative impact by placing the sufferer in a deeply relaxed state, promoting positive thoughts and coping strategies, and clearing the mind of negative thought patterns.
Hypnotherapy is supported by more scientific research than any other complementary therapy ,and in relation to helping relieve the symptoms of IBS, research has shown between 70 - 80% success rate.
In my practice I often work with a combination of Hypnotherapy and Energy Healing to help alleviate both pain and stress.
