Eisoptrophobia- Fear of mirrors or of seeing oneself in a mirror.
Treatment of Eisoptrophobia
In order to restore correct breathing, the person must learn to recognise the presence and operation of the diaphragm which is a membrane of muscle and tendon separating the thoracic and abdominal cavities. The diaphragm bulges up into its resting position during exhalation, forcing air out of the lungs as it moves upwards into the chest cavity.
One way of becoming aware of its activity is to breathe in and out deeply, beyond the normal point, to force air in and out of the' dead space' in the lungs. During inspiration the diaphragm flattens, thereby reducing pressure in the thoracic cavity and drawing air in to fill the lungs completely.
