Insomnia complicates your life, drains your energy and leads to further issues
If you suffer from occasional or chronic insomnia, you know the immediate effects:
low energy, difficulty focusing on tasks, irritability, and
trouble concentrating. But did you know that insomnia also contributes to and complicates other issues, including:
- Weight gain or loss
- Heart disease
- Chronic fatigue
Insomnia sufferers know that insomnia changes from one person to
the next. Perhaps you have trouble falling asleep, or staying asleep.
Or both. Or you wake far too early and then can't go back to sleep. Or
you sleep through the night, but restlessly, and wake feeling drained
in the morning instead of energized.
Perhaps your insomnia has already morphed into an anxiety, and you begin
to feel nervous and upset as bedtime (and the ensuing battle)
approaches. Sleep hypnosis can help with all of these, and whatever
unique form your sleep problem has taken.
I have suffered from insomnia, and I know how bad it can get. I also
know from my experience that insomnia often has nothing to do with
having a bedtime routine, not drinking caffeine, not having a TV in the
bedroom, etc., etc. Yes, all those sleep hygiene suggestions are good,
and they can be helpful, but if your mind is trying to PROTECT YOU by
keeping you from sleeping, none of that will help. That was my
experience, and the experience of numerous clients who couldn't find a
solution to their insomnia until they tried hypnosis.
My insomnia was my subconscious mind trying to keep me from falling
asleep, because I unconsciously blamed myself for something that had
happened while I was sleeping.
I had one client whose subconscious mind had not accepted his CPAP
machine (for sleep apnea), so it only let him get a little sleep each
night, because it felt that if he slept, and stopped breathing, he might
die. His insomnia was resolved permanently in one session!
Another client's insomnia started in a time of stress, when her husband
started traveling for work for the first time ever. Even though he'd
stopped traveling and the stress was over, the insomnia had become a
pattern that needed to be reset in her subconscious mind. Her insomnia
was resolved permanently in three sessions.
Hypnosis is very effective in resolving insomnia, regardless of the cause.
Insomnia is often found "comorbid," or in conjunction with, anxiety,
depression, and stress, all of which also respond incredibly well to
hypnosis. And sometimes insomnia really is just a state you got "stuck"
in, a bad habit of the brain, and it just needs some effective
retraining. Hypnosis is able to do all of that, without drugs, without
Hypnosis is a proven effective complementary or alternative approach.
Hypnosis has been very successful in the treatment of insomnia, and
is supported by numerous studies. Unlike the side effects of medications
that are used for insomnia, there are no adverse side effects with hypnosis.
Children and teens, as well as adults, are able to experience the
relaxed state of hypnosis. In fact, one of the common "side effects" of
hypnosis is better sleep, even when that isn't the issue being dealt
with. One of the most common comments we hear from clients is how well
they slept through the night after a hypnosis session!
