Frequently Asked Questions

How does hypnotherapy work?

Hypnosis is best described as a focused and absorbed state of attention, where your mind becomes more receptive to new ideas. It’s not magic or mind control, it’s a natural process that feels similar to when you become absorbed in a good book or movie.

During an Nerva hypnotherapy session, you’ll find a comfortable seated or lying position before closing your eyes. You’ll listen to a therapist as they guide you into a focused state of attention, and then give you suggestions to help your body manage IBS symptoms.

How can hypnotherapy help manage IBS symptoms?

Gut-directed hypnotherapy can help you to build a positive relationship between the gut and the brain. It doesn’t stop the signals from your gut; instead, it helps you learn how to manage your perception of these signals and calm your IBS symptoms. Gut-directed hypnotherapy has been shown in dozens of studies to be a highly effective approach to managing IBS symptoms, working just as well as common elimination diets like low FODMAP.

When will I start to see results?

While everybody is different, many people start seeing results during the very first week. Nerva will help you monitor and understand your progress throughout the program.
