Hair Pulling or Trichotillomania – What Is It?

Hypnosis is one of the most effective ways to stop hair pulling. Meridian Peak Hypnosis helps clients around the world stop pulling their hair via Skype and FaceTime.

Trichotillomania is an irresistible or compulsive urge to pull hair from the body, generally from the scalp or eyebrows; however some pull out hair from other areas such as underarms, genitals, arms, legs, chest and tummy.

If you suffer from compulsive hair pulling, you know exactly what it is and how it can affect and control your life.

Hair Pulling Is Commonly a Response or Escape

Many experience Hair Pulling or Trichotillomania as a subconscious response or escape from stress, anxiety, boredom and many other everyday issues at home, work or school.  After pulling out hair, many often talk of a great sense of relief.  Failing to pull hair out causes considerable anxiety and distress.

Many with this condition go to great lengths to hide hair pulling from friends, family, teachers, parents and others.

Hair pulling or Trichotillomania in many cases is a learned behavior, however in others it can develop gradually over time.  Through hypnosis, we work together to find out what the starting point was, then stop the behavior.

Hypnosis = One of the Most Powerful Tools to End Hair Pulling

Hypnosis goes straight to your subconscious which is where the habit of hair pulling is stored in your mind. Studies show the subconscious mind has a 93% success rate for change. This is significantly higher than success rates using talk therapy which studies show requires far more sessions with lower success rates.

Hypnosis helps to relax the mind, arms and hands so they remain away from the hair and refocused. Therapeutic hypnosis helps the mind relieve the underlying cause that causes the hair pulling, helping your hair to grow back and appear healthier than ever.
