If you’ve tried many products to relieve your panic attacks without success, it may be time to consider trying hypnosis for anxiety. Hypnosis refers to the act of becoming intensely focused and absorbed into a state of trance to receive new ideas or perceptions. This state is often described as being in a state of heightened consciousness. Hypnosis can be helpful to treat your general anxiety, conquer smoking, boost your self-confidence, or improve sleep quality.
Hypnosis for anxiety can either be self-induced, performed through the use of a professional hypnotherapist, or achieved by using hypnosis recordings that contain positive suggestions. Positive suggestions can help the individual to relax their mind during the trance state. During this time, the hypnotherapist will gently suggest positive affirmations and suggestions to focus and distract the patient’s mind from the negative and fearful thoughts present in the patient’s conscious mind. The hypnotic suggestions are then coupled with relaxation techniques such as deep breathing or progressive muscle relaxation.
