There are some good self-hypnosis CDs available to help with insomnia. It can also help as a form of pain management.


I agree with you LindseyMid, self hypnosis CD's are very calming and so are the relaxation CD's - have you thought of trying those? They may be avaiable to hire from your local library.

It's just a bit of time out for the body and brain, even if you don't actually fall asleep.

I've seen a hypnotist for weight and pre exam nerves and I find the experience very relaxing indeed, and it's not like the stuff you see on the telly! No one can make you do stuff you don't want to do!

Anyone tried reiki? Thats also very relaxing.


Hi Diddle,

Every morning my fella Tommy gets up for work at 5am which wakes me up and I struggle to get back to sleep, so I have a nice cuppa tea in bed with him before he goes, after hes gone I then settle down with Darren Marks Relaxing Hypnosis app on my iphone which was free in the Apple App store.

Its a relaxing hypnotherapy session and it works every time, before I used this I couldn't get back to sleep, If you haven't got an iphone or ipad I'm sure you can buy the CD from Amazon or something similar, its worth a try and probly only cost you a couple of quid.

Hope this Helps
