FAQs About Hypnotherapy For Nail Biting


Imagine having long, strong, beautiful nails…

Why do we bite our nails?

Let’s be honest, nail biting is not a life-threatening problem but it can lead you to feel less confident or even embarrassed when other people look at your hands and see chewed-down, stubby nails. These days there is much more focus on well-groomed hands because of the rise in the availability of nail bar manicures. Not only can it look rather unattractive but it is also often an indicator that the person in question has a nervous disposition which may not be the right message you want to send to a future employer or a new partner, for example.

Nail biting, also known as onychophagy or onychophagia, is an oral compulsive habit of biting one’s fingernails. It is sometimes described as a parafunctional activity, the common use of the mouth for an activity other than speaking, eating, or drinking.

It could be that nail-biting is a habit that you started when you were younger and you don’t even notice when you do it now. Or it could be that you only bite your nails when you feel anxious or worried about something. Some individuals simply bite their nails out of sheer boredom, as it provides a simple, repetitive activity or a way to provide sensory stimulation and a sense of comfort. Whatever the reason Hypnosis for Nail Biting can be used as a helpful treatment to activate the subconscious mind to help you leave your nails alone.

Can Hypnosis help with Nail-Biting?

YES!  Hypnosis can potentially help with nail biting by addressing the underlying causes and modifying the behavior. Here’s how it can be beneficial:

1. Identifying Triggers: Hypnotherapy can help individuals identify the triggers or situations that lead to nail biting, such as stress, anxiety, or boredom.

2. Behavior Modification: Through hypnosis, a person can work on changing the nail-biting behavior by creating new, healthier responses to these triggers.

3. Subconscious Reconditioning: Hypnosis focuses on the subconscious mind, where habits like nail biting are deeply ingrained. It aims to recondition the subconscious to break the habit.

4. Relaxation Techniques: Hypnotherapy often incorporates relaxation exercises, which can help individuals manage stress and anxiety, reducing the urge to nail bite.

5. Positive Reinforcement: Hypnotherapy can reinforce positive self-image and self-control, boosting an individual’s confidence in their ability to stop nail biting.

6. Visual Imagery: Hypnotherapy may use visualization techniques to help individuals imagine themselves with beautiful, healthy nails, motivating them to stop biting.

Other Habits Hypnosis can help with…

Other Habits Hypnosis can help with include but are not limited to: Hair Pulling, Eyebrow & Eyelash Plucking, Thumb Sucking and even Bruxism (or teeth Grinding).

Trichotillomania is the name for hair pulling or eyelash and eyebrow plucking. For some people, this is merely an irritation but for others, it can become a more serious problem. Again hypnotherapy can be a good treatment to help with this disorder.

Thumb Sucking is also an issue for some children (and some adults). People generally seem to grow out of the habit but using hypnotherapy this can happen much more quickly. Also, Hypnosis for Bruxism or Teeth Grinding can be very effective if you find you wake up in the morning with a sore jaw and ground down teeth!

"I didn't really know what to expect from Hypnotherapy but was recommended to go by a friend who had tried it and I can definitely say it has far exceeded my expectations!"
