Hypnosis to Help Stroke Victims

Hypnotherapy has been proven to work for patients who have suffered a stroke.

Can Hypnotherapy Help Stroke Patients?

The importance of hypnotherapy for stroke patients can be seen in the case of a woman who suffered a stroke 16 years ago. She was bothered by her inability to speak clearly. The neurologist she visited told her that it was probably just an after-effect of the stroke and there wasn't much he could do about it; but with hypnotherapy she was able to recover her voice, and now she is able to speak normally without any problems.


The process of hypnosis works by suppressing certain parts of the brain- usually those that are responsible for controlling emotions or sensations. This is done by relaxing the person's conscious awareness so that they are in a state of heightened awareness while remaining calm and also relaxed. It is also possible to use this state to re-program certain behaviors and thoughts or to access blocked information.

Why is Hypnotherapy Important for Stroke Victims?

Strokes can cause significant damage to the brain and can lead to paralysis or blindness. Hypnotherapy is a non-invasive treatment that helps stroke victims recover from their injuries.

Strokes are serious and life-threatening illnesses that can cause long term complications for the sufferer. Strokes can leave people paralyzed or blind, which often leads to depression and suicidal thoughts. Hypnotherapy is a type of alternative therapy which has been shown in studies to help stroke victims recover from their injuries.


How Can Hypnotherapy Help with Recovering from a Stroke?

Strokes are caused by a blockage in the blood flow to the brain. It can be either due to a clot or a ruptured vessel. Strokes are often overlooked as they can happen without any warning. An individual may feel fine one moment and then suffer from a stroke the next moment.

Strokes usually result in some form of paralysis and difficulties with speech and vision, but hypnotherapy is used to help individuals recover from these post-stroke symptoms.


Hypnotherapy works by helping individuals regain control of their physical functions, improving their communication skills and their ability to learn new things. Hypnotherapy also helps stroke survivors by teaching them how to cope with their disabilities while reducing anxiety and depression that they may experience from their condition. Strokes are the leading cause of disability in adults and can lead to other changes in a person's personality. Hypnotherapy can help a patient cope with the physical, mental, and emotional challenges they face by teaching them how to move past their limitations.

What Conditions Have Been Successfully Treated Through Hypnotherapy?

As previously mentioned in our recent articles, Hypnotherapy is a form of therapy that can be used to treat other conditions, such as Epilepsy, IBS, Insomnia, and Fibromyalgia.

There are many more conditions that can be successfully treated through hypnotherapy. Some of these include anxiety, addiction, insomnia, and post traumatic stress disorder.
