Hypnosis can help you retrain an over-sensitive gag reflex response – great for COVID testing.
Your gag reflex (as the name suggests) is a reflex action. The gag reflex is a contraction at the back of your throat which stops objects entering the throat except as part of normal swallowing.
If you touch the soft palate at the back of your throat you’ll find that produces a natural gag response.
Your gag reflex is nature’s way of stopping you choking. It is one of the body’s essential defense mechanisms.
But the gag reflex can begin to get in the way of natural and necessary functions like eating out, going to the dentists, wearing dentures or swallowing necessary medication or even brushing your teeth. This can be because of anxiety or past traumatic experience, or just heightened stress.
Quickly re-training reflexes with hypnosis
It’s certainly possible to train yourself to resist the gag response. People can train themselves to do sword swallowing for instance by overcoming the natural response to gagging.
That is a little extreme of course, but it illustrates how seemingly involuntary processes like the gag reflex can be brought under control. Hypnosis is an excellent way to change autonomic (unconscious) responses because it deals directly with the unconscious mind.
The Control the Gag Reflex session will focus on retraining your gag response to be more subtle and discerning. The gag reflex is an essential tool but like any tool we need to know when to use it and when it can stay out of the way.
Hypnosis is the perfect way to diminish the old access gagging pattern and get you feeling so much more relaxed and in control.
