How hypnosis works with insomnia

Sometimes, If you are worried or stressed your mind works overtime mulling over problems and anxieties as you try to sleep. Hypnosis will clear your mind so you will be in a more relaxed state going to bed.

Tranquilisers and sleeping pills only reduce anxiety to help you sleep. Hypnosis actually tackles the underlying issues and the root cause of your sleep problems.

With hypnosis you will develop a natural sleeping pattern.

Why do you need sleep?

Just like you need to recharge your phone when the battery is low, this is what sleep does for your body and mind. You need to recharge your battery!

Have you ever heard the expression ‘sleep on it’? This is because your mind problem solves more efficiently when we are asleep. Scientists believe that this is because our neuronal connections within our brain flow more freely when we are asleep than awake.

How hypnosis works with Bed-Wetting

Bed-wetting, also known as Nocturnal Enuresis, is a common problem with both adults and children. It can cause unhappiness and great distress to a child, especially if being told off by parents when it happens.  As already mentioned, it is likely to be caused by anxiety and with hypnosis we can get to the root of the problem so we can break the unwanted pattern.

With hypnosis we can train the subconscious mind to have control while asleep.

The Rhythm stages of Sleep and Dreams

Stage 1

A very light sleep of up to 10 minutes. As you fall asleep your body may jerk as your muscles relax and no longer respond to motor messages from the brain

Stage 2

Your heartbeat slows and body temperature decreases in this light stage of sleep that lasts about 20 minutes. You can still be easily awoken in this stage as your body prepares for deep sleep.

Stage 3

During the next few minutes you proceed from light sleep into deep sleep.

Stage 4

This lasts about 30 minutes and it is hard to be awaken. In this stage our brains process important stimuli allowing us to toss and turn in the bed without falling out, and respond to unusual sounds such as dogs barking or a baby crying. It is in stage 4 that night terrors, sleepwalking and bed-wetting occurs.

When stage 4 is complete, you start to cycle through stages 3 to 2 before entering the REM stage.

Stage 5: REM

Apart from being a popular rock band in the 1990’s, it is also stage 5 of sleep! During REM your heart rate rises, your breathing becomes more rapid and irregular, and after every 30 seconds your eyes dart around in a momentary burst of movements.

During REM, your genitals become aroused which is the reason why men often have an erection in the morning.

Dreams in the REM stage are likely to be emotional and story-like.

The sleep cycle repeats itself around every 90 minutes.
