How hypnosis promotes sleep

As you listen to the Deep Sleep hypnosis program these brain wave frequencies will gradually and comfortably slow down to the theta level ensuring a natural transition into delta. Because this transition will have occurred smoothly and effortlessly this quality sleep can be maintained for longer periods of time.
