Many people turn to medication first and then perhaps look for the underlying meaning of insomnia. There are many bodymind psychotherapy strategies that can do a lot to resolve sleeping problems. Using the river of life technique it is possible to shift from a sympathetic to parasympathetic dominance because it is relaxing. The felt sense of the meaning of insomnia is often discovered during this treatment and can help reveal underlying psychological issues that need to be resolved. Drugs suppress the symptoms of insomnia, but they never deal with the underlying reasons for it.
