Sleep, as known to mankind, is a naturally occurring phenomenon that heals the mind and body. Unfortunately, today millions in the world long for a good night’s sleep. Advancements in science and technology have given us brighter days but with dark circles. As estimated by the National Institute of Health, 30% of the world population complain of sleep disruption, and 6% of them suffer from insomnia.
Insomnia, a disorder characterized by difficulty in falling and staying asleep is considered the modern-day evil. Apart from mental illnesses like stress, anxiety, tiredness, depression, it also causes physical illnesses like stroke, obesity, blood pressure and heart disease.
We sleep to rejuvenate our body, mind and spirit. A good night’s sleep leaves us refreshed, focussed and enthusiastic for the next day, whereas a sleepless night makes us feel lethargic, distracted, grumpy and low on energy. As sleep allows the brain to process the information collected through the day, the lack of it disrupts our creativity, thinking, decision making and problem solving skills. One-third of life invested in sound sleep determines our productivity, success and happiness in the other two-thirds of life.
Hypnosis is the most effective method used worldwide to induce a slow-wave sleep, the quality of sleep that repairs and restores optimum physical and mental health. It is a scientifically proven technique that permanently heals short-term and chronic Insomnia, and is the only side-effect free method that can be tailored to help anyone sleep better.
At the subconscious level, insomnia is usually caused by an underlying, deep-seated cause. The therapist digs down to uncover the trigger that inhibits the person from falling or staying asleep. Positive suggestions are used to help the person let go of trauma if any and relaxation techniques are practised to reduce tension and brain activity, after which the person easily slips into deep rest. After a few sessions, the therapist teaches self-hypnosis to the person to induce sleep on his own and bid goodbye to the problem.
