We all know the term “all-nighter”, and how we feel the day after… significant fatigue, difficulties functioning, agitation, distractedness, etc.
Many people suffer from sleep disorders daily, and their quality of life suffers for it. Sleep disorders can manifest a number of ways:
- Difficult falling asleep
- Repeated awakenings throughout the night
- Feeling restless while sleeping
- Early awakening
- Chronic fatigue
Sleep is one of our most basic needs, like food and drink!
We spend about a third of our lives sleeping.
The role of sleep in our lives is critical so that we can function normally in the physical sense and in the mental and emotional sense.
Sleep disorders can have many causes, such as advanced age, hormonal changes in women, health issues, mental illnesses like depression, etc.
Research shows that mental stress is one of the most common causes for sleep disorders.
During sleep, we “turn off” our brains in order to create an inner peace in order to have a deep and calm sleep.
When our brains are occupied throughout the day and before sleep by thoughts, fears, anxieties and mental stress (often stemming from an overwhelming lifestyle), we can’t allow ourselves to relax enough to get good quality, undisturbed sleep.
How can my treatment help with sleep disorders?
In a treatment I developed called “free flow”, I first put an emphasis on breathing.
I teach the patient how to breathe more fully, so that more oxygen travels to the body’s cells, by using breathing exercises you can do at home – your body and soul will experience a calm that will allow you to fall asleep and experience a better sleep.
I also combine other techniques such as energy washout and Bach flowers that can help the patient work through situations of stress and anxiety, both consciously and unconsciously, to let go of them on a mental and emotional level, and by doing so improve sleep quality.
I would be happy to help, please contact me:
