Hypnosis for Insomnia
Over 20% of Americans suffer from the ability to have a good night’s rest. Given our current high-intensity lifestyle, where we often hurry off to work, then home to eat and sleep, then rush off to work again, it’s no surprise that insomnia is on the rise.
Perhaps some think that getting less sleep, or inadequate sleep here or there poses no problem. However, lack of sleep interrupts key processes taking place both in the brain as well as the body, causing a breakdown in immune system functioning over time. Hypnosis for insomnia can help.
Key reasons contributing to insomnia which can also impact your health:
- Excessive mental stimulation due to constant interaction with cell phones causes our brains to be wired to respond immediately – including at 2 and 3 AM (which occurs frequently occurring among teens).
- Irregular work schedules interrupt the pattern of consistently going to sleep at a specific time
- Circadian Rhythm disorders can occur when traveling to different time zones. In addition, exposure to too much light (i.e. Alaska in the summer months), or too little light can disrupt sleep routines.
- Too much caffeine too late in the day
- Eating excessive amounts of food too late in the day
- Feeling depressed
- Excessive stress at school, work or home
- PTSD, and unresolved trauma memory
- Specific medical conditions such as chronic pain, asthma, diabetes, Parkinson’s Disease and Alzheimer’s etc.
- Sleep apnea and snoring
- Frequently interrupted sleep
Alcohol Often Doesn’t Help Sleep, but Hypnosis for Insomnia Does
Ironically, although many believe drinking alcohol relaxes the brain and facilitates easily falling asleep, in fact, alcohol can often cause one to wake up in the middle of the night.
Sleep’s Best Kept Secret Regarding Weight Management
One very important reason for consistently going to sleep around 11 PM has eluded many of us, mainly because doctors haven’t emphasized the importance of this key cycle: that the metabolic burning mechanism operates most efficiently between 2 AM and 6 AM. Exactly what does this mean? For example, when a person enters sleep around 11 PM their body gradually enters a REM (or Rapid Eyeball Movement) phase where they begin to sleep more deeply. By 2 AM the body enters a new phase where its metabolism begins to burn excessive fat. This phase lasts until around 6 AM. This may explain why occasionally you wake up feeling lighter. For example, a male weighing approximately 260 pounds may burn up to 540 calories per night.
Getting 7 to 8 hours of sleep a night is highly recommended. When we fall short on sleep over a prolonged period, our metabolism is weakened and blood pressure increases, resulting in weakened job performance
Powerful, Effective Therapeutic Approaches to Helping You Sleep Better
Hypnosis for insomnia can be very helpful in addressing the underlying stressors. The mental stress that often accompanies insomnia can be alleviated by helping the client tap into deeper reserves of relaxation while enabling them to feel confident that they can truly slip into a deep, dreamless state (i.e. a “delta wave” state).
Brain Working Recursive Therapy addresses the fear and anxiety insomniacs experience. The effectiveness of BWRT lies in the ability to short-circuit the way the brain processes stress, fear, and panic while enabling the client to focus on exactly how they will feel having successfully achieved a full night’s rest.
