Often if a woman is finding the experience uncomfortable their GP will prescribe them hormonal treatment, however this can often cause unwanted side effects. Hypnosis on the other hand, is side effect free and can be very effective in reducing menopausal symptoms such as hot flashes. It also may help reduce anxiety, which in turn will improve your sleep patterns. The way hypnotherapy works is by sending messages to our subconscious whilst we are in a deeply relaxed state, meaning that our perception of an experience can be reprogrammed to react in a different way.
Woman undergoing hypnotherapy sessions for menopause will notice certain changes such as an increase in focus, responsiveness and also much more openness and less critical and disbelieving. The purpose of hypnosis for managing menopause is to help the client manage specific symptoms, emotions and physical well being, helping women make this transition feeling healthy in mind, body, spirit and emotions.
