Hypnosis Can Help with Acne
Hypnosis can help treat acne. But probably not like you are thinking.
According to tons of research and clinical experience, the skin is the part of the body that is most susceptible to psycho-emotional problems, including stress and anxiety. Skin problems such as acne may also be external manifestations of a number of organic diseases. However, when such organic causes have been excluded by the appropriate tests, it is almost certain that a skin complaint, of whatever type, has a large emotional component.
The research and clinical literature is virtually filled with well documented cases of chronic, serious skin problems treated and permanently eliminated through the proper use of hypnosis. Dave Elman was able, on several occasions, to treat such skin problems through hypnosis in the presence of large groups of medical doctors. You heard correctly. Hypnosis can help with acne.
If all possible organic causes have been excluded, hypnosis may be effectively used as the main therapy of choice and not just as an adjunct to other therapies in the treatment of even persistent and chronic skin problems.
I realize that hypnosis probably can't help the physical condition, but can it help with the compulsion to pick at pimples and, hence, make acne pimples and breakouts worse.
What if I have this compulsion to pick at the acne pimples?
Hypnosis may help with any compulsive behavior patterns like these. It will not be a "treatment" like you would get from a physician but more like a guide helping you to make the change a permanent part of your life. All Hypnosis is self-hypnosis, so you will be doing all the work - the Hypnotherapist will just guide you along the way.
Very few of those who practice hypnosis are doctors, since few doctors will find the time to work with a client for an hour or more several times, in order to assist with a cure.
While hypnosis is an option to try to cure the mental side and can help a person controlling picking and popping, the better solution is to cure the acne completely at its source. We can not stress enough how effective the Acne no More system has been shown to completely cure acne, and usually in less than two months. It is highly recomennded that you check into this guide before you venture down the path of hypnosis to cure your acne.
