How hypnosis can help incontinence

There are three different types of incontinence, stress, urge and functional. The first is due to insufficient strength of the pelvic floor muscles. It is the loss of small amounts of urine associated with coughing, laughing, sneezing, exercising or other movements that increase intra-abdominal pressure and thus increase pressure on the bladder.

The second is involuntary loss of urine occurring for no apparent reason while suddenly feeling the need or urge to urinate and the third occurs when a person recognises the need to urinate, but cannot physically make it to the bathroom in time due to limited mobility.

Hypnosis won’t only help to reduce the incontinence but it can also help the emotional issues that come alongside. It also has the benefit of no side effects. The way it works is through the process of accessing your subconscious and instructing it to support your intended goals. In this instance your goal is to be in control of your bladder.

There are many people who have benefited from hypnotherapy for this problem and the first step towards the road to recovery is to realise you have a problem and seek a medical diagnosis. There is no reason to feel ashamed of this problem and once you have received a confidential diagnosis you will then be able to begin a treatment of your choice.
