Insomnia (difficulty sleeping) can have many different causes and may be temporary or a long term problem.
Sleep is so important for the repair and regeneration of our body and all its functions. We know how much better we feel after a good nights sleep. The problem may be the inability to get to sleep on going to bed, or it may be waking early and being unable to return to sleep.
There are many things you can do to help yourself such as keeping the bedroom at an even temperature. Having a warm shower or bath can aid sleep, as can listening to relaxing music or having a cup of chamomile tea before bed.
If you are still struggling to get a good nights sleep, then Reflexology may be able to help you by calming the nervous system.
There is a specific point on the base of the foot called the insomnia point. Usually in a person who is having problems sleeping this point is sore when pressed, it is one of the best points to massage to help induce sleep.
