Evia is based on research where women significantly improved their ability to self-manage hot flashes, night sweats, insomnia, anxiety, and depression. With Evia’s science-based program, members will learn to better manage menopausal symptoms.Learn more
Hypnotherapy can help in two ways. It can teach the brain to better respond to temperature changes, reducing how often hot flashes and night sweats are triggered. It can also help you calm the body’s stress response, meaning when a hot flash or night sweat does happen, the physical symptoms (flushed skin, increased heart rate, sweating) are less severe.
Menopause impacts the body’s ability to regulate temperature. That means, your brain will sometimes think you’re too hot or too cold – even if you’re not – and trigger a physical reaction to fix it.
Nerva helps patients train the brain to better regulate their temperature.
Patients begin with five weeks of daily hypnotherapy, psychoeducation, and breathing exercises. As they progress through the program, many patients report increased moments of calm, with their new knowledge empowering them to feel more in control of their menopausal symptoms.
After the first five weeks, patients transition to the maintenance plan for ongoing post-program support to maintain and improve their results. After a 7 day trial, Evia is billed quarterly at $99USD for a 3-month subscription, which includes the five-week core program, ongoing maintenance plan, and unlimited app access.
In a recent study, women who completed a hypnotherapy program for hot flashes experienced up to an 80% reduction in the frequency and severity of hot flashes after five weeks. Evia’s program is based on this research, and created in partnership with the researcher.

Previous research has demonstrated that a hypnotic intervention can reduce hot flashes, a significant problem for some women. Based on the authors' previous research, the present study was developed to evaluate the feasibility of a guided self-hypnosis intervention for hot flashes. Thirteen postmenopausal women received 5 sessions of guided self-hypnosis in which all hypnotic inductions were recordings.

Hot flashes are a significant problem for many breast cancer survivors. Hot flashes can cause discomfort, disrupted sleep, anxiety, and decreased quality of life. A well-tolerated and effective mind-body treatment for hot flashes would be of great value. On the basis of previous case studies, this study was developed to evaluate the effect of a hypnosis intervention for hot flashes.

Hot flashes are a significant problem for many breast cancer survivors and can cause discomfort, insomnia, anxiety, and decreased quality of life. In the past, the standard treatment for hot flashes has been hormone replacement therapy. However, recent research has found an increased risk of breast cancer in women receiving hormone replacement therapy. As a result, many menopausal women and breast cancer survivors reject hormone replacement therapy and many women want non-pharmacological treatment.
