Clinical Hypnotherapy and Psychology to overcome Snoring
Snoring is defined as the emission, during sleep, more or less annoying sound associated with breathing. The noise comes generally from the soft palate and the tissues of the mouth, nose or throat, which vibrate under the effect of air movement.
The mechanisms underlying snoring are varied and complex. In most cases there is no single definite cause leading a person to snore systematically. The snoring is multifactorial: almost always multiple factors combine to create a situation characterized by the occurrence of severe turbulence in the air that is breathed which lay in the tissue vibration generating noise.
In many cases, snoring is a symptom of a more serious disease, called obstructive sleep apnoea syndrome (OSAS-Obstructive Sleep Apnea Syndrome) characterized by repeated episodes of upper airway obstruction during sleep.
These apneas are continuous and the individual is unaware. They are associated with a dangerous reduction in the concentration of oxygen in the blood and should not be taken lightly.
Important factors involved
A successful strategy to stop snoring is hypnosis
Snoring is a problem that can be treated by helping the snoring individual come into contact with his mind, changing the way that he or she thinks and feels. The Hypnotherapist relaxes the patient, creating a comfort zone in the mind.
This is based on the fact that people are more likely to snore when they breathe through the mouth instead of the nose andthe therapist can re-educate the snorer to breathe differently. Another benefit of hypnosis is that it can be used with the partner to block out the noise in their mind allowing them to sleep better at night.
