Everyone deals with stress in their lives, and many struggle with anxiety as well. Stress and anxiety can affect every part of your life. They can harm your performance at work, your relationships with others and your physical health. For these reasons, it is critical to get a handle on stress and anxiety. Hypnotherapy for stress relief can help.  

The Toll of Stress and Anxiety 

A 2018 survey by the Hong Kong Playground Association found that more than 30% of young people surveyed had stress that ranged from mild to very severe, and more than one-third had anxiety ranging from moderate to extreme. These conditions affect all age groups, and while there are treatments available, they are not always successful. Many people dislike the side effects that come from medication and have not found much success using other approaches either. Others may simply want another tool in their arsenal against stress and anxiety. Getting stress relief from hypnotherapy can mean that these conditions are controlled safely.  

Working with a trained hypnotherapist can give you greater confidence in your ability to handle the regular stresses of life. Stress relief hypnosis in HK can improve your mental and physical health. 

Hypnosis for Anxiety 

Many studies have found hypnotherapy to be effective against anxiety. In some cases, study participants were suffering from anxiety-related physical issues. In others, people were suffering stress related to medical diagnoses and treatment. In less serious cases, people whose performance is affected by stress and anxiety have found stress relief with hypnotherapy. Hypnotherapy is sometimes combined with cognitive behavioral therapy, and when it is, the outcomes for people are generally better than for those who only get CBT.  

Hypnosis has been effective in treating both adolescents and adults. For example, one 17-year-old was struggling with anxiety, panic attacks and addiction. While in the focused state of hypnosis, he received reassurances that he was healthy, and with regular practice, his anxiety stopped. Hypnosis for anxiety in HK can help you deal with your fears in a similar way. 

Hypnotherapy and the Brain 

Some studies have focused on how hypnotherapy works to reduce anxiety. Researchers at the Stanford University School of Medicine found that there were three significant changes to the brain during hypnosis. These changes could lead people to be more focused, less self-conscious and could result in the state of what is sometimes called “flow.” Flow may be achieved by athletes or creative people deeply engaged in a task and can be enhanced with hypnosis. However, even if you are not trying to achieve this state, hypnosis for anxiety in HK can help reduce your stress levels.
