Your body needs the rest time you get each night during sleep to rejuvenate and regenerate. If you find it hard to get to sleep or stay asleep, or find your mind is going round in circles worrying about things, such as your job, the children, the mortgage or just thinking…then hypnotherapy can help.
Sleep is essential for good health. It refreshes the mind and repairs the body. It is so important to get the sleep you need, so that your body can regenerate and heal, and be able to support you in the coming day ahead. Sleep isn’t a static state of consciousness, in fact the brain is active during sleep and moves through distinct stages of sleep, over and over, every night. Adequate time spent in these sleep cycles is vital to restore the energy systems in the body, so that it can perform all the functions necessary for health and wellbeing.
Lack of sleep can cause fatigue, poor concentration and memory, mood disturbances, impaired judgment and reaction time, and poor physical coordination. A short-lived bout of insomnia is generally nothing to worry about, however chronic sleep loss is of concern, as it can contribute to health problems such as increased stress levels, high blood pressure, anxiety, pain, and a decrease in the immune system’s power to perform.
Hypnotherapy techniques to control and overcome those behaviors that prevent sleep from occurring can be utilised to help you to retrain your mind and body to rest, and allow sleep to occur naturally, so that you wake refreshed every day.
