Biting and chewing fingernails

Nail biting is a nervous impulse or a form of obsessive-compulsive disorder. With it self-injury is possible.

Fingernail biting is not only ugly but can also bring health problems such as chronic nail inflammation or nail growth disorders.

Causes of nail-biting often include stress, nervousness, boredom, imbalance but also an imitation.

For many, nail-biting occurs only in stressful phases. This occasional fingernail biting can manifest as a real OCD. Therefore, sufferers should consider treatment early.

Use of hypnotherapy for nail-biting

Nail biting can also be an indication for a deeper mental disorder, but in many cases, it is simply a bad habit or a sign of tension” says Professor Steffen Moritz, a graduate psychologist at the Department of Psychiatry at the University Hospital Hamburg/ Eppendorf (UKE).

Biodynamic hypnosis is the method to finally stop the fingernail biting:

  • Hypnosis has a deeply relaxing effect on the physical and mental level.
  • Analytical hypnosis targets possible causes in the subconscious.
