If you struggle with getting a good night’s rest, hypnotherapy can help you improve not only the quantity but also the quality of your sleep.
Slow- wave sleep is the deep sleep your body needs. This is where immunity is built up, energy is stored, and your body is able to heal and repair. The amount of deep sleep your body gets can be improved by up to 80% with hypnotherapy.
Hypnotherapy Can Help Insomnia
Insomnia or trouble sleeping can be a primary problem or a secondary problem due to underlying issues. With either scenario, hypnotherapy can help.
Maybe it’s anxiety or ptsd that is the underlying issue of your difficulty sleeping. By addressing the anxiety or ptsd with hypnotherapy (see our articles on hypnotherapy for anxiety and hypnotherapy for ptsd), sleep issues resolving can be a wonderful secondary outcome.
If chronic pain is the cause of your sleep troubles, hypnotherapy can help provide some relief from the pain with what is known as hypno-analgesia. This helps to lower your body’s sensitivity to pain which will allow you to sleep more soundly.
How Hypnotherapy Improves Your Sleep
Hypnotherapy helps you enter a state where your mind is relaxed and your subconscious mind is open to new suggestions.
In hypnotherapy, we can remind your subconscious mind of what it feels like to drift into deep sleep. We can help bring your mind back to a time when sleep was easy.
In this state of deep relaxation and focus, you are able to move past all the mental chatter and access your subconscious thoughts. We can introduce visualizations and guided imagery to teach your subconscious mind how to relax, fall asleep, and stay asleep.
How Hypnotherapy Can Solve Sleep Problems
Hypnotherapy has also been proven to have success treating sleep problems such as sleepwalking and nightmares.
With hypnotherapy we can help you achieve deeper sleep where you don’t partially wake up and then begin to sleep walk. We can also work with your subconscious mind to train it to wake up when you stand up.
There is so much that can be done with hypnotherapy to address the issue of nightmares. So often nightmares are coming from repressed fear, trauma, or unprocessed life experiences.
Because hypnotherapy will help you access your subconscious mind. We can work to identify the source of the nightmares and then create new thought patterns in your subconscious. We will introduce new ways of thinking that are peaceful, calm, and unafraid.
Hypnotherapy can help you get a deep and refreshing night of sleep without any of the side effects of medication.
