Want to put the spark back in your marriage? Go get a “brainwash” -- that is what more and more Britons are opting for.

Scores of married couples are turning to hypnosis to boost their sex lives, a therapy which experts claim turns back the clock to make partners seem as attractive as they did in the first flush of romance.

In fact, it’s so powerful couples’ sex lives can be transformed overnight, the ‘Daily Star´ reported.

“In a relationship that’s gone a bit cold and lacking in passion, hypnotists can put the fire back. After a while, people get obsessed with the things that are wrong in a person rather than focusing on the things they like. We can stop them seeing those faults.

“We use so called ‘anchors´ which evoke feelings from the start of a relationship -- it can be a song playing when they met, a photograph of old times, even a smell. If we fire off these anchors it takes them right back to that initial sexual excitement.

“Miracles do happen -- marriages get saved and break-ups are prevented,” hypnotherapist Peter Salisbury was quoted as saying.

As well as boosting bedroom performances, hypnotherapy is even being used by cheats to help convince partners they’ve been faithful. And some lusty lads turn to the technique to help them bed babes they thought were out of their league.

“Success with women is not all down to looks. It’s much more than that. If you really want to get that person, you can if you believe yourself to be really good-looking and believe yourself to be worthy.

“Women go for that. They’re attracted to confidence and power. With a bit of self-belief people can really up their game and punch above their weight,” Salisbury of the National Council for Hypnotherapy said.
