Effects of Stress
Excessive stress in your life interferes with your interpersonal relationships at home, on the job, and socially. It can make you spend your efforts on not being unhappy, rather than on being happy. Stress can waste your vitality and deplete your personal energy resources that could be used for enjoyment. You can become negatively influenced in your attitudes and feelings about yourself more easily.
More seriously, medical research estimates as much as 90 percent of illness and disease is stress-related. Stress can interfere with your physical functioning and bodily processes. Stress raises blood pressure and can directly harms the cardiovascular system. Stress depresses the immune system and allows chronic illnesses to overwhelm us, causing pain, disability, and even death.
How Can Hypnosis Help with Stress?
Hypnosis is also an ideal state in which to learn new ways to cope more effectively. Hypnosis is a powerful tool to counteract stress and stress related illness. It is one of the fastest and the easiest way to relax deeply by lowering heart rate and blood pressure and relaxing muscle tension. Hypnosis is a relaxed and focused state of mind and most people can be trained to enter this state of deep relaxation in just a few sessions. Once trained, most clients can induce a self-hypnotic state at any convenient times during their day to allow themselves to enter a deep state of relaxation.
