Research has shown that once-weekly sessions of hypnotherapy, with women also practising at home, can help the women to reduce hot flushes by 70 per cent after just five weeks, reducing both the frequency and the intensity of the flushing. Women taking part in this research also reported being 'highly satisfied' with the treatment, scoring it more than 9 out of 10.
Restful sleep is often an issue during the menopause. Frequent hot flushes or night sweats disturb sleep, while stress and anxiety can make it hard to get to sleep in the first place or to go back to sleep again after being woken. In addition to reducing the flushes, learning simple techniques to control night-time anxiety can mean a happier, more rested feeling for the next day. For example, breathing techniques can help settle the brain ready for sleep. Hypnosis can ensure you approach bedtime feeling relaxed and ready, not anxious and worried about yet another restless night.
Going through the menopause can feel as though you are in some kind of vicious negative cycle. The fall in oestrogen causes the hot flushes, stress and anxiety. These then cause disturbed sleep, which then results in even more anxiety and mood swings and the cycle goes on.
The good news is that there are ways to break this cycle, to reduce the symptoms, to get you through this challenging time and for you to feel just more like 'you' again.
