Hot flushes are a mind body connection. Let me explain. Hypnotherapy has been clinically shown to reduce hot flashes and night sweats by up to 80%. Alongside HRT, it’s the most effective management tool.

You can learn to control your physical symptoms by controlling your thoughts and responses. Simply, just by regulating the temperature from the subconscious part of your brain your control room, or if you like you your internal operating system.

So if you feel HRT isn’t your only option, hypnotherapy is a good consideration to manage and self regulate your hormones, which drives your hot flushes and night time sweats.

Hot flushes, sometimes referred to as hot flashes, are exactly as described. It’s when you suddenly get a surge of heat usually from your chest area spreading up around your neck, underarms and face.

They can last from 3-10 minutes at a time. The reason they are so uncomfortable is largely due to the unexpectedness of when a hot flush will arise and can leave you drenched in sweat.

Frequently they occur at night, disturbing sleep and creating more anxiety. During meetings, travelling, meal times and other social occasions. Leaving you feeling hot, bothered and out of control .For many women hot flushes are embarrassing and uncomfortable.

Who is prone to hot flushes and Night Sweats?

They are commonly experienced as a distressing and embarrassing symptom by peri -menopausal and menopausal women. The age ranges most commonly affecting women from 40-55.

Scientific studies have identified that stress, anxiety and diet can considerably influence the extent a woman can experience hot flushes.  It’s a vicious circle, and can be exhausting for female suffers.

Why do they occur?

When you reach menopause, you are no longer ovulating each month and the production of oestrogen and progesterone ceases. It’s actually triggered by the part of your brain called the hypothalamus. Your hypothalamus (a part of your brain) is your heating and cooling control centre regulating your body temperature. It manages when you’re too cold and warms you up. It also decides when you’re too hot and cools you down.

During and leading up to menopause the hypothalamus may believe your body is overheating when it’s actually not.  It triggers your cooling response: the blood vessels near your skin dilate triggering that flushed feeling. Your heart rate goes up and blood moves faster around your body and the heat travels to your neck, face, and neck resulting in flushing, and sweating.
