Insomnia is a sleep disorder where people find it difficult to fall asleep, stay asleep, or both. Those with insomnia don’t feel refreshed when they wake up and this can lead to fatigue during the day and other symptoms like added stress, dulled reactions and general grumpiness.
The American Psychiatric Association (APA) states that about one-third of all adults report insomnia symptoms. Sleepless nights can be caused by stress, pain, jet lag, medications or a past traumatic event.
Many people describe their mind racing as the reason they cannot sleep. Older folks, often get their days and nights mixed up which can cause serious medical issues.
For people with insomnia, hypnosis can help to allow both the body and mind to relax and let go of the anxiety that not falling asleep can create. Hypnosis can take you to deeper levels of brain activity which can result in a deep sleep.
Hypnosis can calm your mind and switch your focus to "sleep thoughts" rather than rehashing the activities of the day or mentally preparing for the day ahead. Sessions with a hypnotist followed by hypnosis recordings can set you up for a refreshing, replenishing night's sleep.
