Hypnotherapy for Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), Wilmslow

Up to 10% of the population is affected by Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) – women are more affected than men. A common root cause of this is stress and anxiety, due to the connection between the gut and the mind. Here at our treatment rooms in Wilmslow, Cheshire, we offer a unique treatment called gut directed hypnotherapy. This method directs patients into a state of deep relaxation and heightened focus, but you remain entirely in control. Your hypnotherapist will take you through guided meditations, progressive muscle relaxation, guided imagery and others, using a mixture of mental and physical techniques.
