Hypnosis for Motion Sickness NYC

Does motion sickness prevent you from leading a full life?

Does the thought of going to an amusement park make you anxious?

Do you avoid car rides, flights, buses, or boat trips?

What causes Motion Sickness?

Motion sickness occurs when there’s a conflict between your senses. Your inner ear, which is your balance center, detects movement, but your eyes might not. On a cruise ship, your balance center will detect the movement of the boat while your eyes often do not. This causes stress and confusion and triggers a release of hormones leading to nausea and other unpleasant symptoms.

You’re not alone. Millions of people experience nausea, dizziness, and other unpleasant symptoms when traveling. But there’s good news: hypnosis can help!

The NYC Hypnosis Center, led by the renowned hypnotist Eli Bliliuos, offers a proven approach to eliminate motion sickness and transform your travel experience.

How anxiety and anticipation can trigger motion sickness

There is also an anticipatory aspect to motion sickness. When we expect to feel sick, we can start to feel anxious which can then lead to the symptoms often experienced by motion sickness. 

How Hypnosis Can Help Conquer Motion Sickness

Hypnosis creates a state of focused attention and relaxation, allowing access to the subconscious mind. A skilled and experienced hypnotist can then:

  • Rewire Your Perception: The unconscious mind learns to interpret the mixed signals from your senses correctly. Your subconscious will understand that motion is normal during travel, eliminating the stress and confusion that triggers nausea and vertigo.
  • Employ Relaxation Techniques: As clients master powerful relaxation techniques, they are able to manage or eliminate any anxiety and discomfort associated with travel.
  • Utilize Guided Imagery: While experiencing hypnotic trance the inner mind is programmed to eliminate anticipatory anxiety by imagining a future, free of panic and motion sickness. This practice acts as a signal to the inner mind to release any expectations or fears related to symptoms of motion sickness. 
  • Uncover and Address any Secondary Gains: The unconscious mind is programmed to release any perceived benefits to avoiding travel or amusement parks.

Understanding Secondary Gain and Motion Sickness

One of the keys to reducing or eliminating motion sickness, like many illnesses, requires discovering its source or causal factor. However, understanding and treating the physical issue isn’t always enough. This is due to a phenomenon called “secondary gain.”

Secondary gain is a benefit, conscious or subconscious, that a person receives from feeling ill. For example, someone with motion sickness might subconsciously benefit from avoiding a trip they don’t want to take. This could be due to an undiscovered fear of heights, speed, water, a desire for attention, or a way to avoid unwanted activities.

Why Addressing Secondary Gain Matters

Keeping secondary gain in mind is crucial when addressing motion sickness.  Hidden secondary gain can overshadow the desire to recover and even influence recurring episodes.  We can help you explore these potential benefits and  train your unconscious mind to overcome them, alongside addressing the physical causes of motion sickness.

Traditional Ways to Address Travel Sickness

Dramamine, an antihistamine can help minimize symptoms but can cause drowsiness, restlessness, and insomnia in some patients.

Bonine is another medication which does not typically cause drowsiness but is not as effective as Dramamine.

Acupressure bands can be effective in treating travel sickness and are often used on cruise ships.
