Can Fear Be Erased?

Read the following article to find out about the latest scientific developments involved in the treatment of fear. As the article ponts out, increasing levels of the hormone oxytocin in the body contributes to a perceived decrease in anxiety and fear. Oxytocin is “often called our “love hormone” due to its crucial role in mother-child relationships, social bonding, and intimacy (levels soar during sex).” With the contribution of hypnotherapy we can learn techniques which may be able to help us, amongst other things, master a state of relaxation, improve our social relationships, increase our social bonding with others and/or enrich our sexual performance. These are all processes which have been found to provoke our own natural secretion of oxytocin.
