Generally speaking, Hypnosis is a state of increased relaxation and focus that allows one to transcend the conscious state of functioning to access unconscious processes. The experience of hypnosis is highly subjective and there is no one right and correct set of phenomena that one experiences. However, being hypnotised does allow one to notice what their state of hypnosis is like and experience it. It has been said that sex is like a hypnotic experience, whether with another person or alone.
Hypnotherapy uses the state of hypnosis to change the experiences of life and one’s self. So, if someone feels anxious when intimate with their partner, worries about sexual performance, or worries about maintaining an erection during or before sex, then Hypnotherapy is a means to changing that experience so that any negative thoughts can be released.
Impotence is when a man’s penis fails to become erect in a normal way. A more technical term for impotence is Erectile Dysfunction. Erectile Dysfunction is generally regarded as inability to get an erection that is hard enough to achieve satisfactory penetrative sexual intercourse. Some men may not get erect at all. Others may become erect somewhat, but not hard enough for penetration. Others may become hard enough for penetration, but lose their erection after a while.
What causes impotence?
While anxiety and worry could be a cause at any age, it is most commonly the cause for teenagers and young men with erectile issues. Anxiety and worry can be induced through having unrealistic expectations, fear of causing disappointment, or negative thought patterns.
In middle aged men, stress, guilt and other emotional experiences, such as bereavement, could be a factor. Health concerns also play a significant role.
In older men, health concerns and physical ageing play a role in a high proportion of cases. This is because in older men, narrowing of the blood vessels that carry blood to the penis leads to erectile issues.
Can hypnosis and hypnotherapy cure impotence?
In short, hypnotherapy is an excellent elixir for generalised stress affecting well-being in sexual functioning. Hypnotherapy can also help lower the effects of stress on the body’s physiology.
Of most interest to men experiencing anxiety around sex, erection and performance, is that hypnotherapy offers an opportunity to resolve anxiety, fear, negative thinking, as well as any depression such issues may cause, and restore confidence and therefore full erectile functioning in otherwise normal healthy males.
