The Good News
Sleep disorders of all kinds from insomnia to sleep apnea are very treatable. And because of the importance of sleep, treating sleep disorders improves health on all levels. Behavioral, non-drug treatments for many sleep disorders including insomnia and parasomnias are often the most effective treatments. Hypnosis and good sleep education are two of the most effective treatments for this epidemic of insufficient sleep.
- For individuals with sleep problems 3 to 6 sessions over a five to ten week period can most often bring dramatic improvement to sleep quality.
- For corporate clients small group sessions are cost effective and run two sessions followed by a month of personal online support. Cloud based sleep improvement films, supported by webinars and online educational materals can answer the needs of companies with multiple locations.
