Hypnosis is often the last refuge for insomniacs who have tried every other cure. If you have spent years or ever decades drinking warm milk, counting sheep and taking hot showers at night, all to no avail, you may now be pursuing hypnosis simply because there's no other solution you haven't tried. Fortunately, you've stumbled upon a truly exceptional form of sleep therapy.

Hypnosis is a great way to treat insomnia, because it gets right to the crux of the problem. Hypnosis is a very natural form of deep physical relaxation. Chances are that you've already been in a hypnotic state today, whether it happened while you were driving your car or reading your paperback. Hypnosis is a type of gentle, natural trance. It's also wonderfully relaxing.

Insomnia and Stress

Insomnia feeds on itself. As the clock ticks and your anxiety over not being able to sleep increases, sleep becomes less likely. The moment you feel your mind latch onto the idea that you can't fall asleep, your anxiety increases. A sense of doom settles over you as you realize there will be no relief for you tonight, and tomorrow will be another day of painful exhaustion.

Hypnosis helps you to "lose" yourself, or "forget" yourself. Listening to a hypnosis tape or MP3 will not simply relax you, but will take your mind away from itself. Hypnosis can help your brain loosen its vice-like grip on the fear that you won't be able to sleep. The mind is freed, the body is relaxed, and sleep settles gently over you as it seems to so easily for everyone else.
