I am always on the lookout to find additional non-pharmacological ways to help you get the sleep you need, so that you may have the energy you need to live the life you want.
While I have found experientially that hypnotherapy has been helpful for those with insomnia, I found an interesting study with solid evidence that shows how helpful it is.
In an article published last year, in the journal Neuropsychiatric Disease and Treatment, a study concluded that combining both cognitive-behavioral therapy for insomnia (CBT-i) with hypnotherapy for insomnia (HT-i) resulted in great outcomes for people. This was true for people with depression and insomnia, as well as those who didn’t have depression, and still had insomnia.
The study concluded that combining both CBT-i and HT-i is effective in reducing symptoms of depression and improving sleep. For those without depression, they experienced a significant increase in sleep efficiency and an increase in performance.
