Hypnosis Denver – Anxiety
Hypnosis is one of the methods which can be used to treat anxiety. The treatment depends on the root cause of the person’s anxiety. A person may get only temporary relief from hypnosis for anxiety, if the underlying cause and other problems are not addressed.
Hypnosis helps to uncover the root cause of the anxiety and change an individual’s perception of a past event or release emotion from it.
Hypnosis Denver – How Anxiety Works in the Mind
The amygdala is located in the limbic system. This is the part of the brain that is in control of the fight or flight response. When the amygdala is over-responding to a “perceived” harmful stimulus the person will feel out of control and the body will go through processes that can feel extremely overwhelming or anxiety.
These anxiety symptoms may be shallow and increased breathing, elevated heart rate, sweaty palms, lightheadedness and a feeling of fear. The curious thing about this is the fact that it’s just an over-reaction by the unconscious mind and it can be controlled very easily.

Hypnosis is used in different two ways, as suggestion therapy or uncovering the root cause of someone’s anxiety.
Suggestion therapy: This hypnotic state allows the person able to respond to suggestions. It can help people change certain behaviors, such as stopping smoking or nail biting. It can also help people change perceptions and sensations, and is particularly useful in treating anxiety.
Uncovering the root cause: This approach uses the hypnotic state to uncover the root cause of anxiety, such as a past event that a person has an unconscious connection and the body over-responds to a similar current event.
Is Hypnosis Dangerous?
Hypnosis is not dangerous at all. It is not mind control or brainwashing. A hypnotist cannot make a person do something embarrassing or that the person doesn’t want to do.
Hypnosis is a natural process and we all go in and out of trance at least 500 -700 times a day. Let me give you an example… day dreaming, driving a car and “spacing out” for a few seconds and the T.V. is “Mister Hypnosis” these are all examples of when we all go into the trance state.
Hypnosis Denver – How Does Hypnosis Work For Anxiety?
Once the mind is in a relaxed state, positive suggestions can have great effect on awareness, behaviors and anxiety. The way this occurs isn’t fully understood. Some researchers consider that hypnosis stimulates specific brain wave activity that allows the mind to take in and accept new ideas, while others suggest that hypnosis accesses the ‘unconscious mind’, which is more open to new ideas than the rational ‘conscious mind’.
Using hypnosis for anxiety can help you to be aware of what is triggering your anxiety as this can be something that you are not even consciously aware of. Hypnosis can teach you how to control the level of stress that you feel and to help you to stop your anxiety from growing in intensity because you are able to control it.
