What is metaMe Connect?

metaMe Connect is a safe place for you to meet with your therapist online to treat your Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) symptoms. In clinical trials testing hypnosis treatment for IBS, over 70% of patients enjoyed significant relief, on average cutting their symptom severity in half.



Getting Started

We introduce you to the Connect platform and help you choose your therapist. Your therapist will assess your symptom baseline and make sure our program is right for you.



Using secure video chat technology, your sessions are taken from the comfort of your home or office at a fraction of the cost of a traditional office visit.



After the program (with your permission), metaMe sends a progress report back to your regular doctor so that it can be integrated into your overall care program.

“The metaMe program helped me feel better during an important time at work so I could focus on my job. I loved that I could do my sessions from home. The program works and I would definitely recommend it to others with IBS.”
