When most people hear the word hypnosis, it conjures up thoughts of people not acting like themselves, and under the control of someone who is swinging a pocket watch in front of their face. The reality is that hypnosis is much different than that, and can be utilized for a positive change. Sleep hypnosis can increase your levels of relaxation and can be beneficial to those who suffer from sleep problems or struggle to fall asleep at night.
Why is Sleep Hypnosis Beneficial
Hypnosis for sleep can be beneficial for people with a variety of sleep-related problems. It can help people who are struggling with insomnia, are prone to sleepwalking, or suffer from sleep paralysis. Dealing with these common sleep problems is important because sleep deprivation can lead to a variety of health problems. Through sleep hypnosis, you may be able to finally find relief from your sleep problems.
Hypnosis can help you reach deep sleep (slow-wave sleep) more quickly, and remain there longer, resulting in a much more restful and rejuvenating nights sleep. For people who have suffered from insomnia and turned to medications for sleep problems, slow-wave sleep may be harder to reach, and sleep hypnosis may be able to provide a deeper sleep.
How Does Hypnosis for Sleep Work?
Learning about the client is the first step with any hypnosis, and especially hypnosis for sleep. Learning about your habits, sleep patterns, and personality help to make the hypnosis sessions personalized specifically to your problems and geared towards your goals.
Hypnosis for sleep works through the repetition of verbal cues that draw the person being hypnotized into a trance-like state. Sometimes, when undergoing hypnotherapy, people completely fall asleep in the middle of the session because it is so relaxing. While many describe feeling incredibly relaxed, you are actually in a state of deep concentration, similar to meditation. As you become more deeply relaxed the conscious mind is less active and the subconscious is free to explore challenging issues and to accept positive suggestions to improve mental and/or physical health challenges or eliminate negative behavior or habits.
Once a client has been lead into a hypnotic state the hypnotist uses statements and positive suggestions that allow the subconscious mind to become stronger and more effective to deal with whatever challenges or behaviors the client is experiencing, wants to change, or eliminate. When in a hypnosis session focused on sleep, the hypnotherapist may repeat words such as “relax”, “let go”, or “deeper”, in a soft soothing voice in order to help the person relax and help them to train themselves to overcome their sleep problem. You will learn techniques that you can use by yourself, outside of the consulting office, including self-hypnosis, which will be beneficial in assisting you reaching the goals that we set at the first session.
