How Hypnotherapy Can Help Treat Post Traumatic Stress Disorder

How Hypnotherapy Can Help Treat Post Traumatic Stress Disorder

Hypnotherapy involves the use of hypnosis to treat a variety of issues, including addiction, phobias, stress, and a series of other mental health issues. Hypnosis works by putting the patient into a more suggestible state and tapping into their subconscious. When patients are in this kind of state, a hypnotherapist can make suggestions that can adjust behaviors or discover underlying issues and triggers and treat them on a deeper level. Hypnosis has become widely recognized in the psychiatric community as a viable and helpful tool to treat a number of mental health issues and is practiced by a growing number of clinicians. In addition, hypnotherapy is being used more and more in the treatment of trauma and post-traumatic stress disorder. Hypnotherapy is helpful in the treatment of PTSD in a few ways, including:

  • Identifying triggers: In PTSD cases, there are often specific triggers that are associated with the traumatic event and which cause the victim to relive their experience when they are met with the trigger. Hypnotherapy can help identify these triggers and change your response to them so that you do not have to live in fear of everyday triggers that might send you back into a terrifying experience.
  • Allowing for the somatic release of pain: When we go through traumatic experiences, our bodies tend to store this trauma in our muscular and nervous systems, which can manifest in any number of ways. Hypnotherapy can allow for a somatic release of pain that enables our bodies to let go of the trauma and many of the issues associated with it.
  • Implementation of stress reduction exercises: Hypnotherapy puts patients in a more suggestible state which can allow for the changing of behaviors and implementation of stress reduction, which transfers into their conscious state. This allows for a reduction in the severity of PTSD symptoms and how patients react to their triggers.

If you or a loved one is currently suffering from PTSD, especially if your PTSD has been resistant to other treatment methods, hypnotherapy can help. Traumatic events are difficult enough to endure on their own, but their continued recurrence in the form of flashbacks, triggers, hypervigilance, and hypersensitivity can leave victims in a prison of their own minds and bodies as their trauma continues to inflict suffering. Hypnotherapy for PTSD can help identify triggers and reduce your response to them and help you return to a functioning life.
