Hypnotherapy Helping with Blushing

However for some this can be an issue and can cause them problems in personal life, at work and in many other situations such as meeting people and even in everyday situations like asking for directions or being served in a shop or a restaurant.

Blushing or Erythrophobia is an unconscious reaction to an external stimulus which the manifests itself in a sudden wave of redness that can affect the face, neck and in some cases other areas of the upper chest area. This redness can and does happen very quickly. Sufferers of erythrophobia experience undue anxiety even though they realize their fear is irrational.

Some people can be aware of certain trigger that sets the blushing off such as blushing when talking to strangers, blushing when being served at a checkout by the opposite sex, blushing when the spot light is suddenly shone on you. This anxiety results from worry about being the focus of attention and the subject of embarrassment, it can seem as if the blushing has no specific trigger they simply find themselves blushing for no particular reason.

However what is common to the vast majority of all people that experience blushing is they become so aware of it, they are almost waiting for it to happen, before the blushing even begins so self-conscious it then becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy, which in turn can even lead to avoiding the situations.

Hypnotherapy and NLP can help you control blushing to an extent where you will no longer turn red or feel that hot flushed sensation in your face, that tells you that you are blushing that in turn releases that embarrassing feeling where you think that everybody is looking at you. With hypnosis you can learn to turn down the blushing, control the blushing to the point where it simply disappears.

Hypnosis, NLP and with hypnotherapy I can show you how to tap into the part of your mind that regulates your unconscious mind which then in turn can help you with different reactions, responses, thoughts and behaviours around situations and ultimately your response in any situation to alleviate the blushing. Hypnosis can work with your unconscious mind to program in new, positive unconscious reactions to these external triggers to make blushing a thing of the past.

However, there are other causes of blushing, which include:

  • alcohol
  • fever
  • hot foods or drinks
  • medical conditions, including rosacea, hyperhidrosis, and mastocytosis (a rare histamine-related condition)
  • medications such as calcium-channel blockers, calcitonin, and some cancer treatment drugs (including tamoxifen and buserelin)
  • menopause
  • spicy foods
  • sudden changes in bodily or room temperatures
  • vigorous exercise

Make yourself as comfortable as you can. If you can, loosen any clothes that restrict your breathing.

If you’re lying down, place your arms a little bit away from your sides, with the palms up. Let your legs be straight, or bend your knees so your feet are flat on the floor.

If you’re sitting, place your arms on the chair arms.

  • Try breathing in through your nose and out through your mouth.
  • Breathe in gently and regularly. Some people find it helpful to count steadily from 1 to 5. You may not be able to reach 5 at first.
  • Then, without pausing or holding your breath, let it flow out gently, counting from 1 to 5 again, if you find this helpful.
  • Keep doing this for 3 to 5 minutes.
