Visiting a hypnotherapist can also help you learn self regulation skills. For instance, someone with arthritis may learn to turn down pain like the volume on a radio. Hypnotherapy can also be used to help manage chronic illness as it can be used to enhance a sense of control, which is often lacking when someone has a chronic illness.
I promised you a list, so here are a few other problems or conditions that may respond to hypnotherapy:
- Irritable bowel syndrome
- Tension headaches
- Alopecia areata
- Pregnancy anxiety, labour pain and birth
- Skin disorders (such as acne, psoriasis, and eczema)
- Tinnitus (ringing in the ears)
- Cancer related pain
- Weight loss
- Eating disorders
- High blood pressure
- Indigestion (dyspepsia)
