According to a national survey published by Frontiers in Sleep, 7 out of 10 Americans struggle with getting restorative sleep.

Sleep scientist, Dr.

Rebecca Robbins, says that falling asleep is one of the most common complaints.

While pharmacological intervention or behavioral treatments like cognitive behavioral therapy and mindfulness meditation are commonly known, hypnotherapy is also becoming a popular solution.

Despite what books and movies may lead people to believe, hypnosis is not mind control and cannot make anyone do something they do not want to do.

Hypnotherapist, Gray Smith, explains that hypnosis is a relaxation technique similar to meditation, and she uses it to help her clients sleep better.

Hypnotherapy involves conditioning and reprogramming the subconscious mind with specific information related to sleep.


Robbins notes that while research on hypnotherapy to treat insomnia is limited and needs further study, there are no severe adverse outcomes associated with hypnosis.

Anyone planning to try hypnotherapy should consult with a certified hypnotherapist and talk to their healthcare provider before starting any new routine.
