Hypnosis and hypnotherapy for blushing
Blushing is a human, physiological response that is most often a natural reaction to embarrassment or shame. It can also be the natural result of going out into cold weather, eating spicy food or doing rigorous exercise.
However, for some, blushing can be an irrational response to normal, everyday situations. Talking to a colleague, friend or even family member; giving a presentation; paying for something at a shop; talking on the phone; being put ‘on the spot’. All such scenarios and more can cause some people to not only blush uncontrollably, but also to fear they will each time they go into such situations. This fear and anticipation then feeds into the problem; the person blushes more because they were so focused on it happening, which proves the anxiety was justified and results in them blushing even more.
Hypnotherapy for the treatment of blushing – Does it work?
Most hypnotherapy, EFT and NLP programmes aim to treat blushing by suppressing the potential triggers and using tools to manage the problem, rather than addressing the cause behind it. They use suggestions and instructions in an attempt to persuade or convince the subconscious to dispose of the blushing. However, if the subconscious believes that blushing is somehow necessary or beneficial, then any relief will likely be temporary. Unfortunately, any hypnosis technique that aims to ‘override’, ‘suppress’, or ‘manage’ your blushing can only bring about short-term change. Furthermore, if you force your mind to suppress what it believes is essential or necessary to your wellbeing, then it is likely to create some other reaction or symptom in its place. It is not uncommon for previously ‘suppressed’ blushing to manifest into acne, excessive sweating or even weight gain.
So how can hypnotherapy help me resolve my blushing permanently and safely?
The only way to be freed from blushing 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 blushing. 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 blushing. But once your subconscious believes, rather than being told, that disposing of your blushing 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 blushing 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 blushing – and all anticipation and fear of blushing – can automatically 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. For information on fees and appointments, 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.
