Fall into Sleep

Several people have told me that they had trouble falling asleep. I suggested that they might be “hanging onto their head”. Once they let go, and actively allowed their head to fall into the pillow, they fell asleep more easily. The same applies to the rest of your body. Consciously allow your underside to sink into the bed—the sleep-time equivalent of dropping your body weight into your thighs. Compensation and stress keep us as “hunched up” when we go to bed as they do when we are up and about. This is the beginning of sleep healing.

The resistance that the supports provide allows your entire body to fall into sleep fully supported, and therefore relaxed.

The supports act as fulcrums and levers that contribute to stretching the tissues of the muscle chain, for example, separating mangled muscles (rib cage from waist, and hip from butt). So you are Gliding in your sleep and healing your body!
