Many professionals are beginning to suggest alternative therapies for sleep issues. Rather than turning to something like medication, they are finding that hypnosis can help. Whether you have trouble falling asleep because of insomnia or you have trouble staying asleep at night, hypnosis may be a very effective treatment to consider.

You can enjoy sleep hypnosis sessions led by a professional hypnosis practitioner. Or you can learn to practice self hypnosis at home.

Studies are showing that people who utilize hypnosis to sleep better may be able to sleep deeper and more effectively. Scans of brain activity are showing that hypnosis is a real treatment option.

Amount of Sleep

Too many people are not getting enough sleep each night.

When your body becomes used to less and less sleep, you may have trouble falling asleep when you need to. We aren’t allowing our bodies enough time to fall asleep. We aren’t promoting healthy sleep schedules because of hectic lifestyles.

The amount of sleep you need depends on various factors, including your age. But even within the same age groups, sleep needs vary considerably between individuals.

It is recommended that the average adult gets between seven and nine hours of sleep each night. The most rejuvenating time to get that sleep is between the hours of 10 p.m. and 6 a.m.

Self-Hypnosis or Guided Hypnosis

Learning the process of self-hypnosis is a great way to promote better sleep. If you learn the right way of doing this, which can be done through a certified hypnotherapist, you’ll be able to reap the benefits each evening when you go to bed. You basically direct yourself into a trance-like state. You have the option of putting yourself into this state of mind, but you could also utilize a professional.

In a guided hypnosis session, the first step requires you to relax completely. You will close your eyes and breathe deeply. Then the hypnotherapist will provide you with some suggestions and instructions to help you visualize. You will naturally drift in a state of focused awareness.

Does Hypnosis Put You to Sleep?

Let’s clear one of the biggest misconceptions about hypnosis. You will not lose control. You will not fall asleep. A hypnotherapy program is designed to promote better sleep at night. You might be able to experience the benefits of hypnosis after the very first session.

Most people who practice self hypnosis prefer doing it just before sleeping, because they are looking to facilitate sleep. As hypnosis promotes deep relaxation, it makes it easier for them to drift into sleep and reach their goal: falling asleep naturally.

It is incredibly important that you get a good night’s sleep each night. A good night’s sleep just once or twice per week isn’t enough to help us feel our best. Our body needs sleep in order to heal, remain healthy and prevent disease.
