Blushing and hypnotherapy

Blushing and hypnotherapy

Blushing can be an embarrassing phenomenon for people. Hypnotherapy may be able to help with the problem. No amount of telling the individual that it is ‘cute’ will cure the problem. As with all psychological matters, the originating event needs to be recovered from the unconscious, inspected, and processed properly. Again, the cause can be from a specific early event, say, of humiliation, shame or not being able to express anger. The seeming shyness may indeed cover unexpressed antagonism within the person, so there is a conflict of feelings.

The skin, among having other functions, is also an organ of communication. The redness might in fact be a warning signal to others. ‘Uncovering’ techniques are used to find out those basic truths within the client. Because the blushing has become an entrenched habit-reaction, desensitization may also be used here.
