Nail Biting.

While nail-biting may seem innocent enough, it can have serious consequences for your health and well-being.

Nail-biting is a type of body-focused repetitive behavior (BFRB). People who engage in BFRBs are often dealing with stress or anxiety, and the behavior helps to relieve those feelings. However, nail-biting can actually increase stress levels in the long run. It can lead to nail infections, tooth damage, and even digestive issues if you ingest the nail fragments.

If you’ve struggled to overcome this common but often challenging behavior, hypnotherapy offers a transformative approach to help you reclaim control and achieve beautiful, healthy nails. Our skilled hypnotherapists are dedicated to guiding you through a personalized journey toward freedom from nail-biting.

Let's Talk About Nail Biting

Remove Triggers

One of the best ways to break the habit of nail-biting is to identify your triggers. Do you bite your nails when you’re stressed or bored? Once you’ve identified your triggers, you can work on finding alternative ways to deal with those feelings. 

Hypnotherapy can help you to identify and remove those triggers to biting your nails so that you can grow have healthier looking fingers and hands.

Remove the Hand/Mouth Association

over time, nail-biting can lead to negative consequences, such as the formation of a hand mouth connection.

One common approach to getting rid of nail biting is to replace the habit with a healthy behavior. Some people use fidget toys or stress balls to keep their hands occupied, while others use nail polish, gloves, or bandages to prevent access to their nails. 

Another approach is to find alternative behaviors that can distract from the habit. These may include activities that involve the mouth, such as chewing gum or sipping water, or activities that involve the hands, such as knitting, drawing, or playing with playdough. Over time, replacing the nail-biting habit with a healthier behavior can help break the hand mouth connection.

Hypnotherapy can help you to reduce the symptoms on a deeper inner level, by treating the cause, not just the symptoms, helping you to move forward with the creation that is your life.

Have Beautiful Hands

By quitting the habit and making a few changes to your nail care routine, you can have beautiful hands once again.

Once you’ve stopped biting your nails, it’s time to focus on nourishing and strengthening them. This can be done by regularly moisturizing your hands and nails with a rich cream or oil. You can also incorporate a nail strengthening treatment into your routine, which can help to promote healthy nail growth and prevent breakage.

Grow Strong Nails

Having strong, healthy nails is something that many people strive for. However, for those who have struggled with the habit of nail biting, achieving strong nails may seem like an impossible feat. But fear not, as it is possible to strengthen your nails after years of biting them.

Consider Hypnotherapy

While hypnotherapy isn’t a magic wand or a cure all, studies have shown that not only is it effective treating all manner of issues it does so in many cases much, much faster than traditional talk therapies. Not only that, studies have also shown that when used in as part of your health care team, outcome in all areas of your life can be improved. As an added bonus as if you needed more, hypnotherapy is almost entirely relaxing and enjoyable to participate in.


Long past the traumatic event, associated emotional and physical distress can be activated even by non-threatening triggers. Hypnosis may help to identify these stimuli for resolution.


Hypnotherapy creates a trance state, a condition of intense physical and mental relaxation. While this relaxation alone may offer some relief from trauma symptoms, it also facilitates and enhances relevant additional therapies.


The relaxed, trance state allows reliving the distressing trauma in a safe environment and under the trained therapist’s supervision. More appropriate reactions to identified triggers are then introduced, gradually reducing the stress response’s severity. Your therapist may also provide ongoing ‘homework’, including breathing exercises, meditation and self-hypnosis techniques.
