Bed Wetting Treatment
Bed-wetting (Enuresis)- end your child’s suffering today…
Hypnotherapy has proven to be valuable in the treatment of monosymptomatic nocturnal enuresis (bed-wetting) in children aged from the age of 7 or 8 upwards, and has the advantage of being completely non-invasive with no side effects. It focuses on empowering the children to take control of their own bodily functions.
Hypnotherapy is also of value in the management of nocturnal enuresis associated with day-time symptoms, such as urgency with or without incontinence, and can also be used to enhance the efficacy of treatments like enuresis alarm systems.

We carried out a comparative study of imipramine and direct hypnotic suggestions with imagery used for the management of functional nocturnal enuresis. Enuretic children, ranging in age from 5 to 16 years, underwent 3 months of therapy with imipramine or hypnosis.
After termination of the active treatment, the hypnosis group continued practicing self-hypnosis daily during the follow-up period of another 6 months.
How Successful are Elite Clinics Bed Wetting Treatments?
Of the patients treated with imipramine, 76% had a positive response (all dry beds); for patients treated with hypnotic strategies, 72% responded positively. At the 9-month follow-up, 68% of patients in the hypnosis group maintained a positive response, whereas only 24% of the imipramine group did.
Hypnosis and self-hypnosis strategies were found to be less effective in younger children (5-7 years old) compared to imipramine treatment. The treatment response was not related to the hypnotic responsivity of
