Insomnia is one of the easiest issues to improve with Neurotherapy. Many times people who have trouble falling asleep report dramatic improvements in their insomnia in just a few sessions. Some people can fall asleep easily, but then wake in the middle of the night and can’t fall back to sleep. In these cases, Neurotherapy may also be very helpful in just a few sessions.
When people’s insomnia involves difficulty with both falling and staying asleep, there are usually other underlying issues at the root. In these cases, it may take as many as 40 -50 sessions to improve a person’s sleep patterns. As always, after attaining your objectives it is important to do 8-10 additional Neurotherapy sessions to solidify the developmental gains.
Insomnia is not the only common sleep disorder, and Neurotherapy can also help with other issues related to insomnia. For example, many people are plagued by regular nightmares or night terrors. This can be the byproduct of an under aroused brain, and typically can be easily resolved in just a few sessions. We will also mention here, because that strange itching, tingling or crawling sensation in the legs is very common in people who have insomnia or other sleep disturbances. Restless Leg Syndrome is more common in brains that run slow or are under aroused and can be helped with Neurotherapy.
Here is a list of issues related to insomnia or associated with sleep that Neurotherapy can help:
- Nightmares or Night Terrors
- Sleep Paralysis
- Daytime Sleepiness (Hypersomnia)
- Restless Leg Syndrome
- Reduce Side Effects of Sleeping Pill Withdrawal
Do you know anyone who takes naps, falls asleep during meetings, wakes feeling negative most mornings, suffers from nightmares, has trouble following movie plots, or gets teary-eyed more than the average person? This is what we call an under-aroused brain. There are a few locations on one’s scalp we can provide beta feedback during a Neurotherapy session to train one’s brain to wake up, be full of energy and vitality.
Sometimes people are exhausted when they are naturally energetic – their brains already produce enough beta. In these cases, their brain needs to learn how to take breaks. This person essentially burns themselves out with too much cognitive energy, which is sometimes referred to as nervous energy.
