Sleep is an important part of our lives. We spend around a third of our lives asleep – or we would, if our bodies would let us sleep! If you’re struggling to get to sleep or stay asleep all night, or you’re even just finding yourself still exhausted when you wake up, there could be a number of causes, some of which could be resolved with a simple self-care treatment. From massages helping your body relax to B12 injections helping your melatonin production, here are our top treatments for helping you sleep.
Massages have always been known as a relaxing way to spend some self-care time, but did you know they could also help you sleep better at night? Regular massages can help to force your muscles to relax and therefore improve circulation throughout your body to where it’s needed most. A massage can:
- Reduce pain in the body, improving comfort at night
- Relax your muscles, making it easier to unwind to sleep
- Releases toxins stored in the muscles and aids their proper removal from the body, reducing disturbed sleep or nightmares
- Encourages the body to rest by stimulating the vagus nerve and parasympathetic system, reducing cortisol and improving melatonin levels.
- Decreases stress and anxiety
- Improves mood by giving you some me-time, helping to improve sleep as a result
Vitamin B12 is crucial for day-to-day functioning and too many of us don’t get enough in our diets. While it is possible to change your food intake to bring in more B12, for those on restricted diets it can be difficult to get the right balance of vitamins that you need. Vegans and vegetarians are particularly prone to vitamin deficiencies, which is where our B12 vitamin injections come in. Under the care and attention of our qualified team, our injections provide you with the B12 boost that your body needs to function properly – and that includes sleep. By working with the pineal gland, B12 helps to regulate the production of melatonin, making it easier to not only fall asleep, but stay asleep too, ultimately improving the amount and quality of sleep that you get.
Laser Hair Removal
Okay, so hear us out – while laser hair removal isn’t designed to help you sleep directly, we are avid believers that the ease that laser hair removal provides can definitely help you catch some extra Z’s. Without the need to wake up early and deal with shaving your legs or other problem areas, or having to rush to waxing appointments at awkward hours, you can hit the snooze button for a little longer in the morning without feeling guilty or having to go without. That being said, laser hair removal can also help to build your confidence and improve your mood and there has long been a connection between good sleep and good moods. Self-care can help you reduce stress levels and in turn, help to battle sleep issues and improve the quality of your sleep.
