Dystonia is a condition characterised by muscle spasms.
In the extreme it can cause poor posture and abnormal movements, sometimes causing a level of self consciousness.
It can also manifest as over reactive laughing, humming, yawning or chewing.
The spasms are most commonly experienced in the facial muscles.
How Hypnotherapy helps
A hypnotherapist can desensitise the patient to a particular stimulus causing the Dystonia.
We can immobilise (if appropriate) the muscle causing the problem or look at deeper issues underpinning the symptom.
Hypnosis will increase relaxation and 'turn-down' the fight-flight mechanism sometime responsible for involuntary muscle contractions.
Clinical Hypnotherapy is a powerful, safe and fast tool in the right hands. Look at How Hypnotherapy Works for a jargon free explanation of this process.
