Twitches and nervous tics are “an involuntary, compulsive, rapid, repetitive, stereotyped movement or vocalization.” (Online medical dictionary)
Therefore, describing them as Involuntary clearly means that the person who suffers from nervous tics or twitches does not have any conscious control over these unpredictable and often embarrassing movements. Furthermore, Stress does increase the intensity and frequency at which they occur. For example, when reading a book, watching something on TV, or watching a video the tics or twitches can often decrease noticeably. When children experience twitches or ticks, it more often than not bothers the parents more than it does the children themselves. On this page, I will mainly focus on treating nervous tics or twitching through the medium of hypnotherapy primarily anxiety focused.

There are indeed many causes of Muscle twitching or tics.
