Analytical Hypnotherapy for Irritable Bowel Syndrome

“The body keeps the score” Bessel Van Der Kolk

Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is a common disorder of the digestive system and gut that causes the bowel to be highly sensitive. The condition causes recurring pain and discomfort in the abdominal area and often, the nerves and muscles are impacted. Some people living with irritable bowel syndrome find their symptoms to be an occasional nuisance, for other people, however, the condition can seriously affect their quality of life. Hypnotherapy works directly with the intrinsic link between brain and gut. There is a constant two-way communication between them, via the connections of the autonomic nervous system and hormones that circulate through the bloodstream. With IBS, the communication between brain and gut is unbalanced. Hypnotherapy aims to restore a healthy balance.

Hypnotherapy can help people overcome the stress and anxiety associated with IBS. It can also help with pain management and discomfort by working with body and mind, not against it. Any triggers and the root cause are looked at gently and sensitively.
