Gut Directed Hypnotherapy
Abdominal hypnosis is a recognized medical relaxation technique used primarily for patients with irritable bowel syndrome or other digestive complaints. Abdominal hypnosis can lead to a reduction in somatization and dysfunctional gut-related cognitions. It can also reduce anxiety disorders and depressiveness. Often there is also psychological comorbidity to gastrointestinal disorders, and abdominal hypnosis can be used as a complementary therapeutic tool here as well.
