Hey guys, I am looking forward in a few weeks to try out Hypnotherapy. I really don't know much about it, or know anyone who has done it in the past. Is it a one session deal? And what do they really do? Any information would be great =]

Hi AllStrz ive tried hypnotherapy a few years ago. I guess I should have followed it through with a couple of extra sessions but couldnt afford it at the time. As a result of the session I did come home with a vision and a mantra which I use whenever Im in urgnt need and I think it does help although you need to believe that its going to work too.Good luck - looking forward to hearing how it goes. Im have just started cognitive therapy for my IBS so fingers crossed things will be more managable for me too.

Hi AllStrz,You may want to take a peek at the links below if you are looking for hypnotherapy to address anxiety related to IBS - you can also call the toll free number 877-898-2539 for personal help if you have any questions.In-person hypnotherapy is good for addressing unique personal concerns over and above IBS, but if you are looking for a program that addresses IBS and anxiety, the IBS Audio Program www.IBSCDS.com can be quite helpful and much more cost effective.Feel free to ask any questions - we are happy to help.

I'm looking into hypnotherapy now. Trying to get into a place in St. Louis. There website states that hypnosis treatment has resulted in lasting improvement in 80-95% of patients and that other approaches, such as medication and dietary changes, though helpful have lower success rates. I'm tried of all the meds. not doing anything to help.https://www.slbmi.com/pain_management/irratable_bowel.htm

It helped me a lot. At the beginning it wasn't noticable... but after a month or two I started to feel and see the difference. I believe it's true that it helps to 80% of people... the rest they are sceptivcal too much.
