The Role of Hypnotherapy in Corporate Wellness Programs

Corporate wellness programs are becoming increasingly popular as more businesses recognize the inextricable role between employee wellness and overall success. Preventable diseases are taking a heavy toll in the workplace. According to the World Economic Forum, the cost of non-communicable diseases (NCD)s, such as obesity and high blood pressure, will cost us about $40 trillion by 2029. Employee wellness programs take a holistic approach to these common issues and are designed to include policies that improve overall wellbeing. Wellness hypnosis can play a pivotal role in any well-designed employee health program.

Crafting Balanced Wellness Offerings

Less than 50 percent of employees surveyed in four countries had access to wellness programs and benefits. The same survey shows that 84% of participating employers in China offer wellness benefits. While budget constraints are often touted as a barrier to wellness programs, wellness offerings can attract and retain higher quality workers, promote employee satisfaction, reduce absenteeism and maximize productivity. The right wellness offerings can help significantly reduce health issues by cutting down on contributing factors in NCDs, including:

  • Stress
  • Obesity
  • Lack of exercise

The best wellness programs include a variety of strategies to address a range of NCDs, including:

  • Health-promoting policies
  • Health Risk Assessments and awareness programs
  • Employee assistance programs
  • Smoking cessation plans, exercise programs and weight loss programs
  • Stress management programs

Achieving wellness through hypnosis can fit seamlessly with these offerings and can help your organization improve outcomes in other programs as well.

How Hypnosis Can Fit into a Corporate Wellness Program

If you have ever tried to quit a bad habit or lose weight, you already know how hard implementing major life changes can be. Even with the most supportive corporate wellness plans, your employees are likely dealing with a wide range of personal and professional stressors that can knock them right off the wagon, which is why corporate wellness and hypnosis work so well together.

Hypnosis can help your employees develop healthy stress management skills and coping mechanisms as they implement the changes they need to enjoy healthier, happier lives. It works on the subconscious level to help people adjust their thinking patterns and change the reasons behind their habits rather than just their habits.

Achieving Wellness through Hypnosis

Hypnosis is a natural state of mind and has been proven to be safe and effective for changing a variety of behaviors and addressing health issues, including:

  • Weight loss
  • Smoking
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Pain management

It works on the subconscious part of the brain, which largely influences the way we think, the choices we make and the habits we form. When experiencing hypnosis, you can access the subconscious part of the brain by bypassing the critical factor. We experience hypnosis naturally, such as when we daydream, but with a hypnotherapist, the process can be streamlined and facilitated with specific suggestions to achieve your goals.

You will likely feel deeply relaxed and highly focused, and your subconscious mind more readily accepts suggestions that will help you overcome unhealthy habits and implement healthy changes.

Unhealthy, unhappy employees can hurt your bottom line and can foster an unhappy corporate environment. Creating your own corporate wellness and hypnosis offerings can ensure your employees are not only better served by your employee health program but can also improve the effectiveness of your program.
