Hypnosis can minimise hot flushes, which affect around 80% of women during menopause, by as much as 74%. You can read more about the study here, in an article from Medical News Today.
Menopause is a time of transition and can have a negative impact both physically and mentally. It is a natural part of a woman’s life and being able to cope better with particular aspects of it, can make a big difference.
Although it should be remembered men too, even if less commonly, can experience many of the same symptoms as they go through the andropause – the male menopause. Perhaps for men it is more difficult, as the andropause is something very rarely talked about.
Hot flushes (or hot flashes) are one of the side effects many women entering the menopause experience. They cause a physical discomfort and as they can be visible (sudden sweating, redness of face and neck etc), can provoke embarrassment too.
Changes are inevitable and not always controllable. What can be controlled is how you manage, react to and work through the change process.” Kelly A Morgan
Of course this is not the only symptom that hypnosis can be used against. It can also help with the acceptance of this natural transition and reduce the anxiety and any insecurity that this change can cause.
Hypnotherapy can also help you install patterns that will reduce hot flushes and night sweats, such as taking regular exercise and reducing your intake of potential triggers such as smoking, caffeine and alcohol. It will also help control mood changes, improve your quality of sleep and help you to relax.
We can start thinking about hypnosis as something that is always available to us at any time any day and can help to make our life better. Easier. Happier.
