Are you tired of restless nights and struggling to fall asleep, here at the SleepWellness Centre, we are dedicated to helping you achieve restful rejuvenating sleep.

Sleep is a complex process that consists of several stages, each with its unique characteristics.  Deep sleep is essential for physical restoration, memory consolidation, and hormone regulation.

Hypnosis is an extremely powerful tool

that can guide your mind into a relaxed state, and is used to help various sleep issues, such as insomnia, difficulty falling asleep and restful nights.

Hypnosis techniques can help calm your mind and body, reducing stress and anxiety that may be interfering with your sleep, by inducing a state of deep relaxation, hypnosis can help you unwind and prepare for a restful nights sleep.

Negative thoughts and worries can keep you awake at night, hypnosis can help you identify and release these thoughts, allowing your mind to quiet down and drift into sleep.

Establishing healthy sleep patterns, through hypnosis, can reinforce positive sleep habits and establish a consistent sleep routine.

By programming your mind to associate certain cues and behaviours with sleep, you can enhance your ability to fall asleep and maintain a healthy sleep-wake cycle.

A sleep cycle is on average 90 minutes and during this time we go from N1 to N2 to N3.

N3 is called a deep sleep, during this third phase our brain is “cleaning” itself from all the junk that builds up when we are awake and alert, during N3 the body is restored – its live a wave cleansing the brain and it sweeps from front to back it pushes all the junk into your cerebrospinal fluid.

N1 (stage 1)

this is the initial stage of sleep, where you transition from wakefulness to sleep.  During this phase, your brain produces theta waves, and you may experience light sleep. 

Its common to have sudden muscle contractions, or a feeling of falling during this stage.

During this period our body has not fully relaxed, our body and brain activities start to slow down with periods of brief moments, this stage normally lasts 1-7 minutes.

N2 (stage 2)

this is the stage where your body prepares for deeper sleep.  Your brain produces sleep spindles and K-complexes, which help protect your sleep from external disturbances.  Your heart rate and body temperature start to decrease, and you spend the majority of your sleep time in this stage.

During this stage which lasts approximately 30-60 minutes, our muscles become more relaxed and may begin to have delta (slow-wave) brain activity.  N2 sleep is a complex stage of sleep with many functions, from memory consolidation to protection of the sleep state.

N3 (stage 3)

also known as deep sleep or slow-wave sleep, this is the stage where your body repairs and rejuvenates itself.  Your brain produces delta waves, and its challenging to wake up during this stage.  Deep sleep is crucial for physical and mental restoration, immune function, and memory consolidation.

During this stage which lasts approximately 20-40 minutes, we call this deep sleep, and it is the deepest and most restorative phase of sleep, during this stage, delta brain activity increases and you may experience some body movements.

When we are not getting enough N3 sleep we can experience:-

  • Fatigue and lack of energy, deep sleep helps to restore energy levels, so insufficient N3 sleep can lead to persistent fatigue and decreased alertness throughout the day.
  • Impaired cognitive function, deep sleep plays a crucial role in memory consolidation,   learning, and problem solving, without enough N3 sleep, you may experience difficulties with concentration, memory recall and overall cognitive performance.
  • Inadequate N3 sleep can make you more susceptible to infections, illnesses, and slower recovery times, and weakened immune system, deep sleep is necessary for the proper functioning of the immune system.
  • Mood disturbances, lack of deep sleep has been linked to mood disorders such as irritability, mood swings, and an increased risk of developing conditions such as depression and anxiety.
  • Insufficient N3 sleep has been associated with an increased risk of developing chronic health conditions such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes, hypertension and obesity.

We offer evening sessions from the comfort of your bed, so that you can get a powerful sleep.
