If you are one of those who do not have good experiences on airplanes when traveling, hypnotherapymay be one of your solutions.
Having anxiety when traveling is completely normal. What is not good is that you fearbeing on a plane and your intrusive thoughts torture you for the 2, 5, or 10 hours that your flight lasts. If you have already tried meditation, breathing exercises, and even some medication, and nothing has worked for you, the answer may lie in hypnotherapy. We tell you what it is.
What is hypnotherapy and how can it help you when traveling?
Hypnotherapy is a form of therapy that uses hypnosis as a tool to help people overcome emotional, psychological, or physical problems.
Yes, it sounds like something they would do in a Disney movie, and although it is something similar, it does not involve witchesor magical artifacts, and they will not force you to do something you do not want. This therapy consists of inducing a state of hypnotic trance in patients so that they relax deeply and generate greater concentration in their subconscious.
Therapists use verbal techniques (such as questions and reflections on important moments in patients’ lives) to help them solve their problems and leave their fears behind. The goal of this therapy is to explore the underlying causes of the problems. To leave a fear or experience behind, it is important to find memories and repressed emotions about a specific topic.
