STOP BLUSHING WITH HYPNOSIS



A few years ago, I thought blushing was a beautiful human quality that made someone seem more genuine. It turns out that it's really quite unpleasant for those who do the blushing. 

One of my first bosses used to blush at the most unexpected times. All of us enjoyed that pleasant quirk about him and we would chuckle good-naturedly whenever it happened.  It’s only now, many years later, having spoken to other people who are ‘blushers’ themselves that I suspect that he must have felt a great deal of discomfort over it.

PUT YOURSELF IN THEIR SHOES

We all know that blushing is not dangerous, just a simple body reaction involving dilated vessels filling with blood.  But just put yourself in a ‘blusher’s shoes for just a moment.  Imagine that you are talking and as if out of nowhere your face, neck and entire upper body suddenly turn a bright red, usually when you feel embarrassed or nervous. Imagine how transparent and yes, naked one can feel if you can't hide these emotions. 

BLUSHERS CAN DEVELOP A FEAR OF SOCIALIZING

The blusher has absolutely no control over the onset of blushing and can’t predict when or where it’s going to happen. It can be quite devastating, especially for teenagers, who are trying to become confident adults in their ways of relating to others - so devastating that it can cause some people to shy away, sometimes entirely, from social contact.

HYPNOTHERAPY CAN HELP

Blushing is an unconscious reaction, meaning it is triggered by an unconscious cause and eventually becomes an unconscious habit.

This is where the techniques of hypnotherapy can shine a light. Blushing is similar in a lot of ways to excessive sweating, hot flashes and other unconscious physical reactions that we all get from time to time.  Under hypnosis, a therapist can retrain the unconscious mind to alter our response to these original triggers.  Over time a blusher can retrain their mind to replace a blushing reaction with something as simple as a feeling of relaxation and confidence. As complicated and disempowering as it might seem to the sufferer, it is quite a simple process under hypnotherapy and can usually produce good results in just a few sessions.

YOUR MIND IS MORE POWERFUL THAN YOU THINK

While our unconscious mind is extremely powerful, it is also flexible and can find solutions to our problems in a very elegant and simple way under hypnosis.  Sometimes our mind simply begins a habit that begins for some easy-to-understand reason, but ends up like blushing and becomes problematic. Under hypnosis, that habit can be altered and our life will be all the better for it.
