Menopause currently affects more than 13 million women in the UK. Despite these huge numbers, many women are still misinformed about what menopause means for their body. Moreover, it’s hard to get hold of relevant information about how to effectively reduce the physical and emotional effects of the menopause.
THere are 10 ways that hypnotherapy can alleviate menopause symptoms.
1. Use hypnotherapy for menopause any time
Generally women tend to experience the menopause around the age of 51. However, estrogen and progesterone levels are dwindling for up to 10 years during the perimenopause phase. As soon as you begin to feel the effects of changing hormones you can start a series of hypnotherapy treatment.
2. Fewer sleepless nights
While you may have heard that sleepless nights are an unavoidable part of the menopause, this doesn’t have to be the case. I’ve written elsewhere how hypnotherapy can alleviate insomnia. As we all know, getting a sufficient amount of sleep is crucial to health in general. So, it’s essential to manage insomnia as quickly as possible for overall health. Hypnotherapy retrains your mind and body to fall asleep quickly and to sleep more soundly throughout the night.
3. Fewer hot flushes
Both hypnotherapy and CBT were used in this clinical trial in the US and dramatically reduced the number of hot flushes the women experienced. Hot flushes are irritating, but they can become debilitating for chronic sufferers. There’s no need to suffer hot flushes – a course of CBT Hypnotherapy can help.
4. A holistic approach to menopause
Medication and prescriptions may help with some of the physical effects of the menopause. However, CBT Hypnotherapy offers a fully integrated approach treating your mind and body as a whole. Find solutions for anxiety and mood swings at the same time as treating the physical symptoms of menopause.
6. Relaxation techniques ease palpitations
An essential part of CBT Hypnotherapy is learning how to relax both mentally and physically. Hypnotherapy, particularly when combined with breathing exercises, enables you to calm your mind and your body even when your heart is racing. Significantly, learning self-calming techniques can be one of the most skills that addresses many menopause symptoms.
7. Boost self esteem and confidence
A carefully tailored course of hypnotherapy allows you to better manage common emotional responses to the menopause like shame and embarrassment. When you’re feeling empowered and resilient, you’re in better shape to deal with whatever life throws at you.
8. Balance menopause mood swings
Gwyneth Paltrow recently described how the menopause makes her feel: “You’re just like all of a sudden furious for no reason.” Hypnotherapy and breathing techniques provide very practical tools that can quiet an over-stimulated, sometimes frazzled, mind.
8. A tailored approach to menopause symptoms
Working in close partnership with a hypnotherapist, you will receive treatment that directly tackles your unique set of symptoms. Significantly, no other medication or supplement delivers such a personalised approach.
9. Be more mindful
The Mayo Institute reported that mindfulness helps with the irritability, anxiety and night sweats associated with menopause as well as hot flushes. With the help of hypnotherapy, you can cultivate a more mindful day-to-day outlook to alleviate symptoms.
10. No side effects
Most notably, CBT Hypnotherapy enables you to treat menopause symptoms completely naturally without the worry of unpleasant side effects.
