Online Hypnosis Blog
Are you looking to improve your professional and personal life? It is not easy - you need all the help you can get! Back in the 80's, I discovered hynosis tapes at my local bookstore. At the time I was stressed out due to being a single parent trying to cope in a large corporation. I tried the hypnosis tapes during sleep and during the day when I wanted a breather. Things did not change over night. However, I found that as the days progressed, I no longer felt I was battling life, and myself. I went from trying hard in everything in life to a changed response: I just did what was before me. And, I was able to get promotions at work, while exercising, dieting - and juggling kids and work.

Hypnotize sleep: relax, turn on your iPhone, iPod or player, and drift away into peaceful sleep
Hypnotizing sleep works, according to an interesting study in the International Journal of Psychosomatics which compared subjects that were hypnotized for sleep with subjects with a stimulus control or a placebo for insomnia. According to the subjects' sleep diaries, those that were hypnotized improved sleep, whereas the other groups did not notice a change in their insomnia. Source: Hypnotize for sleep onset insomnia
You could be better off getting your sleep with hypnosis rather than sleeping pills for insomnia.
In a study with patients with post traumatic syndrome and consequential sleeping issues, it was found that hypnotherapy outperformed the drug Zolpidem (whose trade name is Ambien). Not only did the group with hypnotherapy reduce their post traumatic symptoms, the hypnotherapy group showed an improvement in all of the sleep variables that the researchers were assessing.
The jaw clenching and teeth clenching and grinding that you do when sleeping can be destructive. It can lead to destroyed teeth, not to mention the sore jaw and other issues due to your jaw clenching and grinding. There are many remedies on the market for bruxism. One of the most effective and least invasive is hypnosis, as shown by several jaw clenching research studies.
For example, a study for bruxism (the technical term for your teeth and jaw clenching) by Oregon Health Sciences University, School of Dentistry, Portland found that hypnosis was indeed an effective means to stop your jaw and teeth clenching. In this study, subjects who were experiencing jaw clenching and teeth grinding had hypnotherapy sessions for bruxism. At the end of the study, both EMG recordings and self-reports showed that there was significant decrease in the tooth grinding and jaw clenching. In fact, in the 3 year follow-up, it was found that the teeth clenching had continued to be stopped.
So - you want to stop jaw clenching and teeth clenching now because: you are tired of the jaw clenching that causes a sore jaw each morning; the tooth grinding is causing damage to your teeth; or simply because your sleeping partner complains about the sounds you make every night.
Study concludes that hypnosis to stop teeth grinding can create quick, enduring changes
Research has shown that hypnosis can help teeth clenching and grinding. For example, a study by the Monroe Mental Health Center, Inc., in Norfolk, NE, describes a 63 year-old women with a 60-year history of tooth grinding (also called bruxism), who was treated with hypnosis for bruxism. After hypnosis, not only did the teeth clenching and grinding stop, but evaluations demonstrated that she continued to stop teeth grinding - even after a 5 year follow-up.
Do you want to stop teeth grinding? Do you have the symptoms of grinding your teeth at night:
- you wake up with jaw muscles that are painful or tight due to jaw clenching
- you teeth are getting chipped or worn down due to this teeth clenching and tooth grinding
- your sleeping partner complains about the grinding noises you are making while grinding your teeth
- you find you have chewed the tissue on the inside of your cheek
If you have the above, then you quite likely are grinding your teeth while sleeping. This, in technical terms, is called bruxism.
Most people grind their teeth because their jaw has just gotten into the habit of being tense during the night (and day). This is often due to stress. It can also be because your teeth are misaligned, making it hard for the jaw to remain relaxed.

A study reported in the Journal of Clinical Psychology studied the effects of diet and hypnosis. Two groups were formed: both used weight-loss behavioral treatment - but one group also used hypnosis for dieting. At the end of 9 weeks, both groups lost weight. However, at the end of the 8-month and 2-year follow-ups, it was found that only the hypnosis group had additional weight loss, and that more of the hypnosis subjects had achieved and maintained their weight loss goals Read more »
