How Does Hypnosis for Sleep Work?

What is sleep hypnosis? Simply put, sleep hypnosis is the process of inducing sleep through the use of relaxation and suggestions. Sleep hypnosis is often used by clinical psychologists to help patients suffering from insomnia and other sleeping disorders. Some clinical hypnotherapy patients also utilize sleep hypnosis techniques in conjunction with other behavioral and lifestyle changes. Sleep hypnosis is an effective treatment for sleep apnea, insomnia, and sleepwalking.

 

There are three basic forms of sleep hypnosis. One uses the mind while another applies relaxation techniques to the body. Thirdly, there is deep relaxation hypnosis where you listen to soothing audio files while trying to relax your body. Each form of this therapy has its own benefits and advantages. To understand how sleep hypnosis works, it is necessary to explore the three forms.

 

In the first form of sleep hypnosis, the hypnotherapist will talk directly to you, using embedded commands and suggestions. He or she will suggest ideas that you can follow to relax your mind and body. For example, if you are stressed out and you feel like crying, the hypnotherapist will tell you not to worry so much and to try to relax. While doing so, he or she will give you a relaxation treatment using his or her own words. You can listen to the embedded commands any number of times until you have fallen into deep relaxation.

 

The second type of sleep hypnosis is done through guided imagery. This form requires that you be seated in a quiet and comfortable position. The hypnotist will put one or two fingers in front of your eyes and will suggest beautiful scenes or images to take your mind off your problems. You will then begin to drift into a dream-like trance as you listen to the soothing voice and the images.

 

The third form of sleep hypnosis is more similar to stage hypnosis than it is to hypnosis at home. This form takes place in an environment where you are completely relaxed and calm. The hypnotist will use embedded commands and suggestions in order to help people enter the trance-like state. As you relax and allow the suggestions to sink in, you will enter into a deeper and more relaxed state.

 

Sleep hypnosis videos are another alternative to traditional hypnotherapy. The sleep hypnosis videos usually have CDs or DVDs, which have a variety of relaxing sounds, music, and images. You choose a particular sound or image that will bring about relaxation. Your mind and body will automatically fall into a relaxed state, as you focus on the sound or image. Some sleep hypnosis videos also include relaxation exercises that you can do while watching the video.

 

For those who suffer from depression, anxiety, insomnia, fear, sadness, phobias, or just plain bad nights of sleep, hypnosis may be the answer for you. The use of sleep hypnosis for these types of disorders allows patients to break free from their negative thoughts and get better sleep. Some of the disorders associated with regular Hypnosis include: alcohol and drug addiction, smoking, eating disorders, and other addictions.

 

Many patients find that they have a better night of sleep after using sleep hypnosis work. The success rate is quite high for this method. In fact, many doctors will recommend it to their patients who suffer from long-term pain or who are depressed. If you suffer from one or more of the above disorders and you want to get better sleep, check out the many options available to you.

 

Those who suffer from insomnia can benefit from deep relaxation techniques. One way you can learn how sleep hypnosis may help you is to listen to an audio track that includes relaxation suggestions. You can find these tracks online or buy books that include relaxation techniques and suggestions. You may want to make a relaxing tape for yourself so that you can practice deep relaxation at home.

 

Those with sleeping disorders such as sleep walking or sleep apnea can also benefit from deep relaxation. This is especially important if you have sleep apnea. Sleep apnea causes you to stop breathing for short intervals throughout the night, each time you go to sleep. While you may not be aware of it, each time you stop breathing, your heart rate dramatically increases. Deep relaxation can help you get better sleep and reduce the risks of sleep apnea by relaxing the muscles of your body that hold your breath.

 

Another way that deep sleep hypnosis may help you is through verbal cues. Your sleep hypnotherapist will guide you in verbal cues that can help induce a deep sleep. Some of these verbal cues can involve soothing music or relaxing sounds that you can listen to while you are asleep. It may be helpful to draw you mentally into a place of rest, where you feel refreshed and stress free.
