OUR INSOMNIA THERAPIES
Western Medicine has essentially one cure for insomnia: Sleeping pills. At Somnus Sleep we believe in natural remedies. Our first divergence from standard medicine is our view that insomnia as a symptom, rather than as an actual illness. Of course, your insomnia is our primary focus. But experience tells us it has other underlying factors that must be addressed for a therapeutic cure to work. Those factors may include:
As you can see, these are issues that standard medicine has only one “solution”: pills. And they only suppress the issue. We have been successful treating all these issues naturally. How?
Seen through the filter of Chinese medicine, insomnia is not a ‘one size fits all’ diagnosis. Each person experiences it in his or her own, dispiriting manner. We identify thirty “types” of insomnia, with a different treatment for each one of them.
Second, we address your secondary issue as listed above. We do this using, where appropriate, acupuncture and Chinese herbs, Hypnotherapy and Hormonal Rebalancing.
Here is a brief synopsis on each modality.
Insomnia is a dysfunction of the mind and body, and acupuncture essentially jumpstarts the body’s core functions leading it back to a state of homeostasis, or ‘balance’. In treating insomnia with acupuncture and Chinese herbs we analyze the body’s mysteries. Soon, seemingly unrelated symptoms lead us to a treatment strategy.
Hypnosis And Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP).
We utilize hypnosis to ask the subconscious mind what it “wants”. If you’re not sleeping, it may be your subconscious telling you’re doing something that’s not in your best interest. Once you make that change, sleep can return.
Another safe way to reprogram your mind is with Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP). It’s possible the negative thoughts that stop you from sleeping are just poor programming. With NLP and Neuroplasticity, you can choose the way you react to circumstances instead of being a victim to them. This is called freedom, and you deserve it fully and completely
At times, environmental toxins can wreak havoc on the body, and on the mind. At other times, our stress factors can be such that we may experience a ‘tired and wired’ sensation, where we are exhausted but can’t sleep. Or we may get a night’s sleep but still feel exhausted the next morning. To combat this we use supplement therapy to repair and thereby balance the hormones if they are out of balance.
