Hypnosis for the treatment of acne – Does it work?
Acne is a common skin condition which can manifest with varying degrees of severity. It affects adults as well as teenagers, and the symptoms are not only physical; sufferers often experience a great deal of psychological and emotional distress too, impacting on their confidence and self esteem.
So how can hypnosis help? Whilst many are aware that hypnosis can help with weight loss and stopping smoking, few people are aware of the benefits it can bring to skin conditions such as acne, eczema and psoriasis. The subconscious is the instinctive, automatic part of our mind, responsible for all bodily functions such as blinking, breathing, regulating hormones and metabolising food. It’s able to fight infection; to heal; to mend a broken bone. So why is it so persistent in maintaining your acne? Some hypnotherapy and NLP programmes aim to treat acne by suppressing the potential triggers (such as stress and anxiety) without addressing the cause behind it. They use instructions and suggestions in an attempt to persuade or convince the subconscious to dispose of the symptoms. However, if there is a subconscious core belief that you are somehow in need or deserving of acne, then any improvements will be temporary. Sadly, any hypnosis technique that aims to ‘override’, ‘suppress’, or ‘manage’ your acne can only bring short-term change. Furthermore, if you force your mind to suppress what it believes is essential or necessary, then it is likely to create some other reaction or symptom in its place. It is not uncommon for previously ‘suppressed’ acne to manifest into blushing, weight gain or even depression.
So how can hypnotherapy help me resolve my acne permanently and safely?
The only way to be free from acne is to find – and then correct – the cause
Lesserian™ curative hypnotherapy is a gentle, logical and effective method that works WITH the subconscious, not against it. We must first find out *WHY* your subconscious creates your symptoms. Curative hypnotherapists ask the subconscious why it *needs* your acne. Once that subconscious need has been identified, using logic we can help to re-examine the mistaken information that lies behind it. As long as the misinformation exists, so will your acne. But once your subconscious believes, rather than being told, that disposing of your acne is in your best interests, then it will actively do so FOR GOOD.
Lesserian™ curative hypnotherapy is distinguished from all other forms of hypnotherapy primarily by its use of logic. The therapist approaches each person without theories or preconceptions – except for one – that the answer to your acne lies only within your own subconscious mind. With Lesserian™ curative hypnotherapy there is no need to suppress or manage your symptoms. By helping to resolve and correct the true cause, your acne can automatically clear up and fade away, until eventually your symptoms are nothing but a vague and distant memory.
With Lesserian™ curative hypnotherapy you will not be required to relive any traumatic or upsetting situation. All you will feel is beautifully relaxed. To find out more about the Lesserian™ Method, please click here.
Lesserian™ Curative Hypnotherapy Trademark
Over the years many practitioners have incorporated the word “Curative” when describing their treatment, despite providing more basic methods of hypnotherapy. Due to concern over the confusion that was being caused by this, the trademark “Lesserian™ Curative Hypnotherapy ” was registered to mark the difference. The name “Lesserian™” Curative Hypnotherapy is therefore protected by law and denotes the method of treatment that requires the understanding of how people create their problems, which is the necessary first step on the path to correcting the cause of, and resolving, a symptom / condition. Only hypnotherapists licensed as Lesserian™ are qualified to use this technique.
