If you are suffering from poor quality sleep, short or long term, you may be suffering from a sleep disorder called Insomnia. Short term insomnia, lasting from one to three weeks, is usually resolved and there is nothing to worry about. However, if you have long-term difficulty with sleeping, three weeks or more, then it can seriously affect your health.
Poor sleep over prolonged periods can lead to memory impairment, mood disorders such as anxiety and depression, physical health issues such as stress, headaches and a weakened immune system. Modern research has also found a link between weight-gain and sleep deprivation. So if you are suffering from insomnia it is extremely important to address the problem.
Hypnotherapy can help by teaching you how to relax your body and mind, which is a very powerful way to help you get the proper sleep you need each night.
During a Hypnotherapy session you will be taught how to…
Relax your skeletal muscles which reduce tension and enable your body to prepare for sleep.
Learn visualization techniques to help calm your mind and prepare your body for sleep.
Learn breathing techniques to help you drift into a deep, restful sleep.
