Sex, Stress, and Hypnosis

According to Harvard Medical School, an estimated 60 to 90 % of visits to doctors involve stress-related complaints.

Less well known is the fact that most sexual complaints are stress-related. Stress driven anxiety is the single most common psychological problem associated with sex and sexual intercourse.

Even complaints like erectile dysfunction, premature ejaculation, or low libido- which are physiologically based problems commonly caused by low hormones- have a stress and anxiety component, since stress is well documented to influence the production of sex hormones.

Studies show that majority of people have experienced some stress and anxiety related to sex. Fortunately, stress and anxiety can be treated by a variety of non-medical means such as relaxation techniques like meditation or hypnotism.

Hypnotism for Less Stress and Better Sex

The advantage of using hypnotism to treat these common sexual problems is precisely that it is so successful at treating stress and anxiety. Instead of merely lowering stress, hypnotism actually teaches the body to control stress and anxiety.  In the process it knocks out the main psychological factor in all major sexual dysfunctions. This is because it works so effectively on the brain itself. Several studies using positron emission tomography (PET) have looked at what goes on in the brain during hypnosis. These studies reveal significant chemical, electrical and blood flow changes in the brain that help it to better control physical responses. Beyond relaxation, beyond placebo effects, hypnotism creates real change.
