Irritable Bowel Syndrome is characterized by chronic diarrhea, chronic constipation, abdominal pain, bloating and spasms. You may have one of all of the above symptoms.
If you suffer from IBS you probably have tried many different treatments, diets and medications with few positive results.
It is estimated that 10 – 15% of all Americans suffer from IBS symptoms.
HELP IS NOW AVAILABLE!
The first formal research on use of hypnotherapy for treatment of IBS symptoms was conducted by Dr. Peter Whorwell and his group in Manchester, England and published in The Lancet (the premier English medical journal.)
“The hypnotherapy patients showed a dramatic improvement in all central symptoms. The hypnotherapy group showed no relapses during the three month follow-up period.”
How does hypnosis work with IBS?
During hypnosis we invite the subconscious mind to find ways of calming the gastrointestinal system. Research has suggested that IBS patients have very sensitive responses to pain and discomfort in the gut, almost as if the nervous system in that area is tuned up too high. During hypnosis there is a natural relaxation response that occurs, so that the body learns to calm itself. By utilizing the abilities of the subconscious mind the gastrointestinal tract can learn to function naturally, without pain, bloating, constipation or diarrhea.
If you have been diagnosed with IBS, we will work with you and your doctor to alleviate your symptoms. Many patients experience changes even after the first session.

IBS TREATMENT – IN OFFICE
6 – 12 1 Hour Sessions – Held 2 Weeks Apart
During each session we have time to talk, so I can hear from you what improvement you are having and what you need more help with. In the last half of the session while we are doing hypnosis, I will be recording the session. You will leave the office with a CD of guided hypnosis, customized and designed for you. Each hypnosis session is designed to strengthen and reinforce the changes you are already making and to enable you to continue to move forward in your improvement. Your agreement is to listen to the CD every day until your next session, when we will create a new CD.
