Compulsive Skin Picking
Once a habit is installed, the sufferer continues the action mindlessly and can find it very difficult to stop because it has become an automated response. The irritation may be triggered by allergens in the environment, diet or it can even link to anxiety and negative emotions. Hypnotherapy can help you to identify the reasons behind your skin picking so that you are empowered to take action to quit the habit and give the skin chance to heal.
It is generally accepted that stress and anxiety can cause skin problems, after all the skin is the largest organ of the body.
If the inner mind can cause this problem then it also has the ability to visualise curing it by envisaging removing the cause or dealing with it more effectively.
Excessive Sweating Relaxation
Excessive sweating is an embarrassing condition which can be due to over-active sweat glands or over-activity of the sympathetic nervous system. Although cleansing, antiperspirants and deodorants can help in the short term, they are simply covering up the symptom.
Your sweat glands, like all other glands, are regulated by centers in the pre-optic and anterior regions of your brains hypothalamus, which in turn is controlled by the subconscious mind.
Your subconscious mind has the ability to shift the focus away from discomfort and itchiness, towards helping you to feel better during an attack of hives. You can even direct your mind through mind-body-communication to secrete natural antihistamines, and reverse the allergic response.
Do you suffer from uncontrollable itching which seems to get worse at night or when you are warm? Itching can be so annoying because it makes you want to scratch - and the more you scratch the worse the itching can become. Hypnosis can help to soothe away that itch. As soon as you begin to feel better and lose the desire to scratch, the itch can disappear all on its own.
Psoriasis is a stress-related skin condition which can cause unsightly red, inflamed patches on the skin. If you are suffering from psoriasis you may have tried conventional treatments such as creams and lotions, however these only serve to minimize the irritation.
With hypnotherapy we will look for the cause before treating the symptom; following that we will treat the cause in whatever manner seems appropriate for you.
Rosacea is a common, benign skin disorder that can cause redness and raised, puss-filled bumps on the face. It is sometimes confused with acne or blushing and flares up periodically. There may be a trigger to these attacks so your clients may find it useful to keep a dietary diary.
However, this hypnotherapy is aimed at helping those whose condition flares up when they are feeling stressed as it uses visualisation and positive suggestions to help you to feel calm and relaxed.
If your skin hurts when you touch certain fabrics, it could be that your nerves are oversensitive or your brain is overreacting to particular stimuli. A number of pain conditions can make one hypersensitive to pain such as migraines, diabetes, shingles, and complex regional pain syndrome.
There are medications and treatments that can help you to cope with the pain, but sometimes the cause can be psychogenic and different approaches are needed. When other treatments have failed or if you prefer a holistic approach, hypnotherapy can help you to visualise managing your touch sensitivity.
Uncontrollable Goosebumps Relaxation
People often report experiencing goose pimple/bumps at unexpected times. For example, if they think they have seen a ghost, or have a sense of deja-vu, or impending disaster. However, these sensations often disappear after a few minutes or seconds.
Goose bumps are therefore associated with anxiety/fear and are thought to be produced as part of the fight or flight response, the sympathetic division of our autonomic nervous system. Hypnotherapy helps you to regulate these sensations and will help you deal with goosebumps if you are experiencing these on a regular basis.
