Research has shown a clear link between skin diseases and psychological factors. Taking data from many studies an average of 70% of patients with chronic conditions, like psoriasis, acne, eczema and rosacea, had emotional triggers. Stress is also a known trigger or can be a worsening factor for fever blisters, psoriasis, seborrheic dermatitis and has even been shown to impair skin barrier function and dehydrate the skin – allowing more irritants, allergens, and infectious agents to penetrate the skin and cause problems.
Hypnotherapy is effective at treating skin conditions to help your skin conditions. It can address stress, anxiety, low self-esteem and lack of confidence. Hypnotherapy can alter the sensory perception of itching or pain from your skin, and also help cut down on automatic responses, such as itching, scratching and picking.
