Your gag reflex (as the name suggests) is a reflex action. The gag reflex is a contraction at the back of your throat which stops objects entering the throat except as part of normal swallowing.
If you touch the soft palate at the back of your throat you’ll find that produces a natural gag response.
Your gag reflex is nature’s way of stopping you choking. It is one of the body’s natural essential defense mechanisms.
But because of anxiety or past traumatic experience the gag reflex can begin to get in the way of natural and necessary functions like eating out, going to the dentists, wearing dentures or swallowing necessary medication or even brushing your teeth.
The feeling is of loss of control and panic.
Quickly re-training reflexes
It’s certainly possible to train yourself to resist the gag response. People can train themselves to do sword swallowing for instance by overcoming the natural response to gagging.
That is a little extreme of course, but it illustrates how seemingly involuntary processes like the gag reflex can be brought under control. Hypnosis is an excellent fast track way to change autonomic (unconscious) responses.
This session will focus on retraining your gag response to be more subtle and discerning. The gag reflex is an essential tool but like any tool we need to know when to use it and when it can stay out of the way.
Hypnosis is the perfect way to diminish the old access gagging pattern and get you feeling so much more relaxed and in control.
