Hypnotherapy and guided imagery have been used for hundreds of years to enhance women’s health during all life-stages. There are records of hypnosis going back 2,500 years in ancient China and Egypt and today, thanks to better research methods and technologies, science has brought mind-body medicine and hypnosis more into the public eye. Today with neuro-imaging devices such as functional MRIs and PET scans, we can see inside the brain to view in real-time what is happening when someone is experiencing hypnosis. With hypnosis, we use the power of our minds to physically influence our brains for healing and enhancement of body, mind, and spirit.
Clinical Hypnotherapy for Women's Health
Painful periods (Dysmenorrhea)
For those that experience normal menstrual periods with mild pain, it can be hard to believe how serious painful menstruation can be. Some women experience cramping and pain so severe they are unable to go to work, go to school, or care for their families. Pain can be accompanied by nausea, upset stomach, headaches and all over body aches and pains and can be severe enough to affect overall health and wellbeing. Hypnotherapy can help you learn to control the pain and resume a normal life at times of the month when the pain seems unbearable.
Heavy menstrual. Painful periods. Fatigue from anaemia. Spending hundreds of pounds a year on tampons and pads because you have to wear both. These are just a few examples of what it's like to live with uterine fibroids, a topic nobody wants to talk about. Uterine fibroids are very common non-cancerous tumours that develop in the muscle of the uterus that can change the quality of your life. Uterine fibroids are the most common reason why a woman will have a hysterectomy is the second most common surgical procedure in premenopausal women (first is a caesarean section for childbirth). About 70% of women will have uterine fibroids at some time during their lives, though not every woman will have symptoms. The number is even higher for ethnic minority groups women and African-American women who may develop fibroids at a younger age and have more severe symptoms.
