Hypnotension practitioners around the world are preparing for World Hypertension Day on May 17th. World Hypertension Day is an annual worldwide reminder of the serious risk high blood pressure poses to people around the globe.
Rob Woodgate, co-creator of the Hypnotension programme said “High blood pressure causes almost two thirds of all strokes and half of all cases of heart disease, but nearly half of people with hypertension don’t even realise they have it.”
"World Hypertension Day is a chance to bring attention to this global killer, and the fact that, in most cases, some simple lifestyle changes can make all the difference. We would urge everybody to make sure they know their blood pressure numbers and to take action if they are too high."
Normal blood pressure is defined as a blood pressure reading of 115/75, and any reading up to 120/80 is considered average. Blood pressure in excess of 140/90 is considered high.
World Hypertension Day has been established to highlight the preventable stroke, heart and kidney diseases caused by high blood pressure and to communicate information on prevention, detection and treatment to the public.
World Hypertension Day aims to increase that awareness and present solutions to lower blood pressure and help people lead healthier lives.
One of those solutions is the Hypnotension™ programme, which aims to help anyone with primary/essential hypertension to lower their blood pressure naturally. Lowering blood pressure can cut the risk of stroke in half.
The Hypnotension Programme is a one-to-one therapy delivered by a qualified hypnotherapist. They have the skills needed to help people make the behavioural, motivational and emotional changes needed to tackle the common high blood pressure causes.
The Hypnotension Practitioner looks at a variety of lifestyle factors to establish which is likely to be causing or maintaining high blood pressure (Hypertension). These lifestyle factors are then targeted using specific cognitive and hypnotherapeutic techniques to help reduce the clients blood pressure towards more normal levels.
