Your guide to a balanced life
Posted in | Comments Off on Clinical Hypnotherapy and cardio-vascular issues
I have had the pleasure of cooperating with the cardio-vascular patients at the Royal Brompton hospital since February 2010.
Ever since the first day “in the office” I have met many incredibly inspirational people who are determined to improve their challenging lives despite of their physiological symptoms- shortness of breath, dizziness, feeling faint, swelling of the feet or ankles, chest pain, particulary during exercise. I have been seeing predominantly patients with Pulmonary Hypertension (PH) which is a rare lung disorder in which the blood pressure in the pulmonary arteries rises far above normal levels. At the same time as the pressure rises, the walls of the pulmonary arteries become thicker. Sometimes the cause of PH is unknown. There are many different types of PH -pulmonary arterial hypertension (PHA) is the most common type. (I.Armstrong, Understanding pulmonary hypertension).

The Royal Brompton hospital referral
“I feel the sessions have provided a calming positive outlook in relation to my
illness. I do feel that through the self hypnosis and stress relief techniques
I have picked up it helps me maintain a healthy day to day experience.
On the whole I am feeling positive about the illness and life in general
at the moment and I put a lot of that down to the hypnotherapy.” by SH
