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.

*Please note that the time needed to work on a problem can vary significantly from person to person, these examples are provided to give you an idea of the efficacy of Hypnotherapy, but are not intended as an indication of what you might expect personally.
