MRI Scans Can Cause Fear and Anxiety

Hypnosis is an effective therapy to help get you through an MRI scan. Reduce claustrophobia, fear and anxiety all using the power of your mind.

According to a study in the journal Psychological Medicine, 9 percent of people have a clinical diagnosis of claustrophobia or a fear of enclosed places. Experts agree that simply feeling claustrophobia during an MRI scan is common for most people, even those without claustrophobia.

Claustrophobia is defined as a fear of enclosed spaces. To most people this translates to a feeling of anxiety or panic.  In the MRI, the machine is built to get clear scans inside of your body, requiring the equipment to be close to you.  For many patients, merely the sight of the enclosed environment causes panic, fear and claustrophobia.

Hypnosis Can Help Reduce MRI Anxiety and Fear

Typically 75% of clients successfully overcome their fear and complete the scan.  They also begin to cope much better in a variety of other potential trigger situations like elevators and confined spaces.  We help you mentally rehearse the scan in your mind, choose how you feel and remain in control during the procedure.  We can help your mind establish a reasonable expectation as well as a healthy breathing pattern that gets you past the claustrophobic nature the MRI machine can display.

Hypnosis is a tool to get through an MRI

In the trace state, you are deeply relaxed and focused.  During hypnosis the subconscious mind is accessed and desired goals or a new state of mind is introduced.  Hypnotherapy helps change your approach to dealing with closed in spaces in the future.

See yourself in a whole new positive light, allow others to see the glow within you, feel more relaxed around others and feel great from the inside out — its all possible using hypnosis.  Meridian Peak Hypnotherapists craft a custom hypnosis plan that get you feeling better.  99% of our clients report a significant change in how they feel after the first visit.
