Hypnotherapy Help for Skin Problems Skin Conditions and Skin Health

Our skin is our largest organ. It is also the most visible.

It is the boundary, the interface between our physical self and all that is beyond that self.

Because of this, the skin is also one of the main areas - together with the digestive system - that an emotional call for help is registered.

In fact, though skin problems and skin conditions may indeed have a physical origin, they also very often have a distinct psychological component too.

Eczema, psoriasis, acne, pruritus or itching, rashes, reddening, inflammation, and pimples are all indications that something inside needs re-balancing. And this something can be and very often is psychological and emotional in nature.

The first thing to do with any persistent skin problem, of course, is to visit your doctor in order to make sure that it is not a symptom of something more serious.

But what if you have already done this and the condition still continues? What if you have tried the creams, the lotions, the steroids, antibiotics and the UV treatments - and still there is no improvement?

Well then perhaps it's time to look a little deeper inside.

Are you feeling upset, anxious, stressed, angry, guilty? Might there be some underlying emotional factor at play here?

Though the origin of the skin problem may be physical, a virus or infection perhaps, why is it that our own immune system seems incapable of handling it?

We know that the skin is on display wherever we go. It's there as we interact with our world and with everything in it. And because of this, we tend to be more aware of eruptions and rashes than we might otherwise be.

When skin problems persist for any length of time and they fail to respond to conventional treatment, then we need to look elsewhere.

We might be wise to at least consider whether the feeling that we have lost control over our skin - of the way we interface and interact with the world - might not simply be a reflection of what is happening on the inside.

We need to ask whether our skin might not be reacting to the way we react to our self - or to our life.

If this is the case, then an excellent way to tackle the problem is through advanced therapeutic hypnotherapy.

After all, it is the unconscious mind that controls the autonomic nervous system and the many processes that affect and influence the immune system. And hypnosis works hand in hand with the autonomic nervous system.

With properly applied advanced therapeutic hypnotherapy, once the actual origins of the internal imbalance have been treated and neutralized, the individual is then taught visualisation techniques that can calm and quell the symptoms of such imbalance - the skin problems themselves.

With modern advanced hypnotherapy, the individual is taught to access the subconscious part of the mind and is helped to realign and re-balance internal functioning.

In expert hands, hypnotherapy can be really effective in gaining relief from many skin problems and skin conditions, including eczema, psoriasis, acne, pruritus and even warts.

Skillfully applied hypnosis and hypnotherapy can help you improve your skin health and return you to your birthright - problem-free, clear, radiant skin with which to greet the world and shine.

Anxiety Therapy Dealing with Anxiety

As such, it really is nothing to become alarmed about. In truth, a degree of anxiety can even be beneficial. Occasional feelings of temporary, minor anxiety can push us on, giving us 'the edge'. It can keep us on our toes, allowing us to perform to a greater degree of excellence than we ever...

Irritable Bowel Syndrome Treating IBS with Hypnotherapy
Back in the days when I was starting out in practice, few people had ever heard of Irritable Bowel Syndrome - IBS. In those times, IBS was most often referred to as 'spastic colon' and it was a mystery to all but a few perceptive specialist practitioners who intuitively identified its psychological component. Now, however, it is widely accepted that Irritable Bowel Syndrome, if not caused by emotions, is indeed greatly influenced by them. And what's more, it is thought that up to 20% of the...

Your Feet and Health

If you suffer from feet that are constantly cold, this may be due to an underactive thyroid, while hot and sweaty feet might be due to an overactive thyroid. The thyroid has the responsibility for regulating the body's...

End Dental Phobia and Dentist Fear and Smile
Dental phobia and dentist fear are conditions often seen by the hypnotherapist. Usually, clients who have suffered from this crippling fear for most of their lives are amazed to find that after just a couple of sessions of hypnotherapy they have been released from their often overwhelming fear of the dentist. After brief hypno-psychotherapy, they can at last visit the dentist and begin the process of restoring their dental health in a calm and relaxed manner, without the heart-palpitating,...

Putting on Weight with Hypnotherapy
Being underweight can be a real challenge for those who struggle to gain weight but just can't seem to do so. In modern society, with so many suffering from obesity and overweight, precious little attention is given to those who have the opposite problem. Yet being and feeling skinny, scrawny and underweight can have a really negative effect, not only on the individual's health, but on his or her confidence and self esteem. Hard gainers very often believe that it's their metabolism that's...

Uncovering Your Own Confidence with Hypnotherapy
Being confident is our birthright. Whether or not we realize it or are aware of it, the simple truth is that every single person came into this world with an abundance of self-confidence. In fact, we were born to be confident. Inside each one of us there is an authentic self and this self is confident by nature. But when we try to be something that we don't truly feel we are then we are usually in for a difficult time. This is why the old 'fake it to make it' philosophy is so limited in...

What Causes Claustrophobia and How to Cure It
Claustrophobia - or the fear of enclosed spaces - is one of the most common phobias that we see here in our hypnotherapy practice in the UK. Indeed, it is estimated that as much as 5% of the world population suffer from this truly debilitating and troublesome disorder. Sadly, only a very small percentage of claustrophobics receive treatment for their condition. This is usually because they are unaware that effective treatment actually exists. The good news is that regardless of what you may...
