How does it work?

The gut-brain connection

Your gut and brain have a direct line of communication, often referred to as the "gut-brain axis". This means that mental stress can influence gut function, and vice versa.

Deep relaxation

Our guided audio sessions lead you into a profound state of relaxation, aiming to calm the nervous system and reduce stress, a known aggravator of IBS symptoms.

Positive suggestion

In this relaxed state, the recording introduces positive affirmations and imagery focused on promoting gastrointestinal comfort and balance.

Achieving mind-gut harmony

With regular listening, the goal is to train your mind to manage and even alleviate some gastrointestinal symptoms, fostering a harmonious mind-gut relationship.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is gut-directed hypnotherapy?

Gut-directed hypnotherapy is a specialised form of hypnosis tailored to address gastrointestinal disorders, particularly IBS. This therapeutic approach focuses on the gut-brain connection, aiming to alleviate both physical and psychological symptoms. During sessions, individuals are guided into a deep state of relaxation and then presented with positive suggestions and imagery to promote gut comfort and normal function.

How does hypnotherapy help with IBS?

Hypnotherapy taps into the mind-gut connection. Studies suggest that IBS may be linked to a heightened sensitivity and miscommunication between the brain and the gut. Hypnotherapy helps to modulate this sensitivity and improve communication pathways, potentially reducing flare-ups and alleviating symptoms. Additionally, by addressing anxiety and stress -- common triggers for IBS -- hypnotherapy can indirectly help manage symptoms.

Is there scientific evidence supporting hypnotherapy for IBS?

Yes, numerous studies and clinical trials have indicated that gut-directed hypnotherapy can be an effective treatment for IBS. Research suggests that hypnotherapy can significantly reduce the severity of IBS symptoms, improve quality of life, and may have long-term benefits. Thetabloom is based on the Manchester Protocol, which has demonstrated consistent positive outcomes for IBS patients using hypnotherapy.

Are there any side effects or risks associated with hypnotherapy?

Hypnotherapy is generally considered safe and non-invasive. Most people experience no side effects. Some individuals might feel a bit disoriented or drowsy immediately after a session, but this feeling typically passes quickly.

Will I be conscious and in control during the sessions?

Absolutely. During hypnotherapy, you remain fully conscious and aware of your surroundings. It's a state of focused relaxation where you're more open to positive suggestions. You will always have control and can choose to end the session anytime you feel uncomfortable.

How long does it take to see results or feel a difference?

The response to hypnotherapy can vary between individuals. Some may notice improvements after just a few sessions, while others might require more extended therapy to see tangible benefits. Consistency and a positive approach can often accelerate the benefits. It's also essential to remember that hypnotherapy is more about progress than instant results.

Is hypnotherapy a replacement for traditional IBS treatments or medications?

Hypnotherapy is not a replacement for traditional IBS treatments or medications, but it can be used as a complementary approach to treating IBS. Hypnotherapy has been shown to have beneficial effects for IBS symptoms, and it has been reported to be superior to usual medical management for abdominal pain and primary IBS symptoms in patients who failed standard medical therapy.

What's the difference between meditation, relaxation techniques, and hypnotherapy?

Meditation focuses on mindfulness and awareness, often used for clarity and stress reduction. Relaxation technques, like deep breathing, directly target physical or mental stress. Hypnotherapy, on the other hand, involves deep relaxation with positive suggestions tailored to address specific issues, such as IBS. While all offer stress relief, hypnotherapy is more goal-oriented.

Are the effects of hypnotherapy for IBS long-lasting?

The longevity of hypnotherapy's effects can vary between individuals. Many people experience prolonged relief from symptoms after completing a series of sessions. Some studies have shown that the benefits of hypnotherapy for IBS can last for years. However, periodic booster sessions or practicing self-hypnosis can help maintain the benefits and further reinforce the positive changes.
