Hypnosis for Sleep – Overcome Insomnia

staring at clock - having insomnia - Hypnosis for Sleep

Hypnosis is a safe and effective way to help you get the needed rest. Hypnotherapy helps people who have insomnia by using the power of suggestion to help them relax, focus on their breathing, and let go of any negative thoughts or feelings about sleep. By changing your mindset about sleep, hypnotherapy can help improve your overall quality of life and reduce stress—which can lead to better sleep!

The most common insomnia treatment is drug therapy. However, one safer and more natural way is hypnosis for sleep.

Insomnia not only causes exhaustion, but it can lead to a host of other ailments by depriving the body of the rest needed to repair itself. Deliberate deprivation of sleep has long been used as a form of torture. So, long-term chronic insomnia feels like the same thing, torture with all the attendant physical and mental consequences.

Different situations can cause sleep deprivation. For example, stressful or traumatic events or long-term stress, medication (insomnia can be a side effect), changed work shifts, illness, pain, menopause, and light sleeping due to a new baby.

The most common treatment is drug therapy. People take a “sleeping pill,” which knocks them out. The problem with this is twofold. Firstly, drugs do not induce a natural, healthy sleep during which the body can function normally. Secondly, there can be harmful side effects.

You’re not getting enough sleep. You’re always tired and can’t remember the last time you felt fully rested. You’re not alone. According to the National Sleep Foundation, more than 1 in 3 adults report having problems sleeping. And if you’re one of those people, you likely know all too well how frustrating it can be to go through your day feeling exhausted, cranky, and just plain grumpy.

This is a problem. And it can be solved.

Have you been having trouble sleeping? Do you wake up feeling groggy and exhausted, even after a full night of sleep? If so, hypnosis for sleep might be the solution for you!

Why use Hypnosis for Sleep

The safest, most effective, and natural insomnia treatment is hypnosis. Hypnotherapy for insomnia can be done by a therapist or by self hypnosis. Hypnosis involves getting into a relaxed state in which the brainwaves have slowed to the alpha level and then giving the mind suggestions.

When the brain is in the alpha state, the mind is particularly susceptible to suggestion. Hypnosis bypasses the conscious mind and plants the suggestions directly into the subconscious mind.

In other words, hypnosis for sleep can reprogram the mind and alter beliefs, expectations, and subjective experiences.

Hypnosis for sleep can help! Hypnotherapy is a safe and effective way to get back on track with your sleep patterns—and it is natural! It’s just as easy as relaxing in bed 10 minutes before bedtime each night. Here’s how it works:

First, we’ll talk about what’s been keeping you from getting the sleep you need. Then we’ll create an action plan to help ensure everything goes smoothly when it’s time for bed. And you’ll receive a recording to help you relax into a restful sleep every night!

Hypnosis for Sleep works on three levels, relaxation, suggestion and resolving emotional issues

Sometimes relaxing the mind and body is enough to help a person enter a natural sleep. One way of doing it is by listening to a self-hypnosis recording at night in bed. The idea is to fall asleep and not wake up at the end of the session.

Actual hypnosis requires that the person stay relaxed so that the subconscious mind can actually receive the messages. However, since natural sleep is the goal for an insomniac, falling asleep during a self-hypnosis recording is ideal.

Hypnosis works over a more extended period during which the person has several sessions (or listens to a self-hypnosis recording daily). During these sessions, suggestions are given directly to the subconscious to reprogram thoughts and behaviors to help the person get back into the regular sleep pattern.

Sometimes the reason for insomnia could be an unresolved emotional issue. In that case, different hypnotherapy techniques can help resolve the underlying causes of insomnia.

Studies have found that hypnosis is the most effective type of insomnia treatment. Without adequate, good-quality sleep, physical and mental health will ultimately break down. Hypnosis offers a healing strategy without side effects.
