Hypnosis has been found by many people to be extremely effective at helping people deal with Irritable Bowel Syndrome. IBS is a functional disorder of the gut where the bowel has heightened sensitivity and the muscles and nerves don’t work exactly as they should do. This can cause discomfort and pain in the abdomen and also can create irregular bowel movements and incredible inconvenience for people suffering from it.


Some people suffering from IBS even plan their journeys around where they will be able to find appropriate toilets because of the awkwardness this condition can cause – several people we have worked with rarely go out of the house because of the difficulties with the condition.


Symptoms associated with IBS include:


  •                 discomfort in the abdomen
  •                 feeling sick
  •                 wind
  •                 indigestion
  •                 feeling full
  •                 bloated abdomen
  •                 diarrhoea
  •                 constipation
  •                 cramping
  •                 heartburn
  •                  muscle pains

There have been several studies over the last few years regarding hypnosis and IBS and it has been found to be very effective.


In our practice we have worked with many clients suffering from IBS and clients are surprised at how effective hypnotherapy can be helping with this restricting condition. Hypnotherapy can help directly with stress which certainly aggravates the condition, but can also seem to have an effect with the physical symptoms and even causes of IBS.
