Healing Tools for Better Sleep

Who doesn’t feel better after a good nights sleep? But who actually gets quality sleep these days? Luckily we have a few tools to help you get a more restful nights sleep.

PEMF:

Pulsed Electromagnetic Field therapy, or PEMF, may sound daunting at first, but once you try it, you’ll see what we mean. This device can help you get out of fight or flight and pain, quickly calming down the nervous system after a few minutes of laying on it. Sleeping disorders are complex and develop over time. PEMF devices can un-do a lot of damage and can work on improving physiological functions such as melatonin production and cell repair.

In Impulse Magnetic Field Therapy For Insomnia, authorR.B. Pekla also demonstrated that PEMF-type signals are effective for treating insomnia. She did that by explaining how PEMF generates EMF fields with the Theta (4-7.5Hz– Light Sleep) and Delta frequencies (0.5-4Hz – Deep Sleep), which are both sleep-inducing. Furthermore, a study noted on DrPawluk.com showed that in a 4-week double-blind, placebo-controlled study, PEMF therapy helped about 90% of the individuals using PEMF for insomnia. This study was useful in showing that most basic types of sleep problems can be substantially helped with the use of PEMF therapies. Because the brain is a dynamic and bioelectric organ, and sensitive to PEMFs, PEMF therapies should be considered to help people having problems with sleep. All kinds of PEMF systems have been studied to enhance sleep, from very weak microtesla fields to very powerful multi-Tesla fields.

Far-Infrared Sauna: 

We love it because it’s relaxing, detoxifying, and warms up the body from the inside out. But did you know it may also help with sleep? Thermoregulation is key to getting better sleep, according to Tuck.com, a website with evidence-based sleep health information. Some people try to fall asleep faster by working with their body’s thermoregulation process by taking a warm bath before bed. While the bath itself is warm, when they get out, their body temperature swiftly decreases as the warm water evaporates from their skin. This quick cool-down speeds up the process for your brain to fall asleep. A sauna works the same way. Your body is heated up by the infrared radiation, and once you leave the sauna, it rapidly cools down. The end result is a cool body that’s primed for sleep.

Even regular use of infrared saunas during your waking hours can be beneficial to your sleep. “Just like yoga or any other relaxation practice, the consistency of practice alone makes becoming relaxed more accessible to you. You can boost the relaxation benefits of your infrared sauna time by pairing it with meditation or deep breathing exercises that also promote good sleep”, according to Amelia Wilson of Tuck.com.

Honorable Mentions:

Although we couldn’t find designated studies on Whole Body Vibration improving sleep, many of our clients say that they sleep better after using our WBV machines. Whole Body Vibration helps with circulation and blood flow to the brain, which may result in a better mood and deeper, more restful, sleep. Also, massage therapy is great for getting the nervous system out of fight or flight and not only is enjoyable, but relaxing and promotes better circulation. We take insurance for massage if you’ve been in an auto-accident! If you’re looking for a better nights rest, come check out the tools we offer. Your first session of our Whole Body Vibration machines is FREE! As well as your first use of our PEMF mat! All you need to do is RSVP @ (503) 233-9030!
