You've tried all the other helpful techniques right before your bedtime: not watch tv right; turned off all your techy toys like phone, Ipad; drink hot tea [non-caffeine]; meditate; lavender sachet under your pillow; essential oils on the soles of your feet; prayed to God that you have a good nite sleep.
And, still Nothing worked.
Don't throw in the towel. There's other things you can do which you probably haven't heard about before...nor has your friends or relatives.
What's that? CranioSacral work ~ a form of energy work.
Slow down your nervous system with Craniosacral Energy work. It can help calm and relax your central nervous system so that your body is not on "Go" when you are trying to get a deep restful sleep.
How do I know? It worked for me. I would wake up like clock work around 3am. It was always "to use the bathroom". Then, back in bed...eyes shut...but I could not fall asleep for an hour or so. My mind would start thinking about all the things I needed to do, didn't want to do, told me things I should do...none of it was helpful, only irritating.
Then, I took a Craniosacral class. And, practiced Craniosacral on my fellow students and they practiced on me. And, I realized that I was no longer waking up at night at all. That I fell asleep and stayed sleeping until the morning. A coincidence? I know it's not. That's the only thing that was different in my daily routine. And, Craniosacral does work on the nervous system to balance, smooth and calm it out for healing of one's body.
Obviously, I cannot guarantee anything. But, I know it worked on me. I did have several CranioSacral sessions. So, this is Not a one shot deal. But, if you are at wits end and want to get a good night's sleep with no waking up, give Craniosacral a try. In your session, I will also do Facial Reflexology techniques that are also known to help "cure" those sleepless nights. I strongly advise you schedule for my 90 minute or 2 hour session. And, before you leave, schedule for your next one. What have you got to lose except sleepless nights. Contact me for your Wellness session.
