Asthma is a chronic lung disease that inflames and narrows the airways and makes breathing difficult. According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC), asthma affects over 8% of adults in the U.S. alone. Symptoms typically include wheezing, coughing, shortness of breath, tightness in chest, pain or pressure. Some people have more severe and often asthma attacks than others and is potentially fatal.
Hypnotherapy for asthma and other respiratory conditions has proven quite effective:
Hypnosis has been shown to alleviate the subjective distress of patients with asthma: there were less frequent attacks, and less medication was required.

In a study comparing Hypnotherapy and relaxation therapy, the improvement with the Hypnotherapy group was much greater. Only Hypnosis subjects showed an improvement in physiologic measures of respiration.

The subconscious mind is in control of all involuntary body functions, such as bronchial activity. When a person has an asthma attack, it is an involuntary reaction. Using the power of hypnosis and accessing the subconscious mind, we can train the subconscious to be less sensitive to asthma attacks and improve respiratory functioning.
