Reducing Stress with Hypnosis
With the pressures of modern living, it is unsurprising that more people are looking for a means of reducing stress with hypnosis and it’s beneficial effects are being experienced by more people.
We all experience differing levels of stress at points throughout our lives, however, ‘stress’ can mean many things to different people from a degree of irritation to the severe problems the impact upon physical and mental health.
What is stress?
Our bodies react when we experience stress and are placed in stressful situations. The hypothalamus (a region of the brain) triggers the release of hormones, including cortisol, norepinephrine and adrenaline. These hormones have a physical effect upon the body; blood pressure rises, placing additional strain upon the heart as the heart rate increases and as this is occurring, many other functions of the body are suppressed. Chronic stress can even elevate the risk of stroke or heart attack and seriously compromise the body’s immune system, leaving us vulnerable to disease.
In addition to the physical effects of stress, there are psychological effects of stress also. Being under stress can result in feelings of anxiety, fearfulness which may produce feelings of anger and guilt.
Living in a stressed out state for a period of time can have serious consequences for our physical and mental health. With the pressure of modern life, more and more people are looking for a means to achieve effective stress reduction.
Stress is part of modern life and in moderation, the majority of people cope with the day to day stresses of life. Over the long term, living with persistent stress can be harmful to emotional and physical health. When stress reaches a level of this intensity, it is known as a ‘stress disorder’. This makes learning how to reduce and cope with stress essential for well-being in the modern world.
Some people use alcohol, drugs, smoking, sugary energy drinks, chocolate or biscuits as a temporary distraction, however, these strategies are, at best, a temporary fix and can themselves cause additional problems. What needed is an effective solution for reducing and managing stress. Hypnotherapy and hypnosis can be effective in reducing and managing stress triggers and responses.
