Hypnotic relaxation techniques work really well to help you get a good night’s sleep, because they are a great way of relaxing and calming mind and body. Hypnosis is that lovely daydream like state between waking and sleeping. So by being empowered to use these techniques, you are half way to sleep already and can easily focus on happy thoughts and memories, while giving yourself more positive visualisations. This all means you get a peaceful night’s sleep full of pleasant dreams. These relaxation techniques also work well if you wake up in the middle of the night.
Evidence shows that Hypnosis can help with sleep troubles. William S. Kroger M.D. states in his 2007 book 'Clinical and Experimental Hypnosis: "Hypnosis effects improvement in acute cases of insomnia. Often a single session is effective in restoring a sleep cycle, particularly if self-hypnosis is taught on the initial visit." Some research suggests that self-hypnosis improves sleep by redirecting patients' attention away from anxiety, producing thoughts that promote relaxation and is effective for treating insomnia. (Vickers & Zollman, 'Hypnosis and relaxation therapies,’ BMJ 1999;319: 1346-1349).
I have helped many of my clients improve their sleep simply by practicing some very easy relaxation techniques and/or listening to my free hypnosis relaxation CD. One recent client got back to me a few months after her one session and reported to me that: "After just one visit which was most relaxing I had the most amazing result. That night I slept wonderfully and my sleep pattern instantly returned." In conclusion, proper cultivation of sleeping habits can have a positive lifetime impact. Hypnosis, without doubt, can help steer the course of someone’s life in a healthier direction. And there are few things more healing than a good night’s sleep.
NOTE: If you want to see a hypnotist for a diagnosed sleep disorder the hypnotist must have your doctors consent before treating you.
