Herbs for Relaxation and Sleep

Relax - Restore - Rejuvenate

Get more consistent, deep, quality relaxation and sleep... naturally.

Time for a little R&R.

Although mapped out as a class for beginners, it’s really a class for everyone: we all need to relax and sleep!

In the modern-day age of constant stimulus, frequent stress, and incessant to-do lists, it can be difficult for many us to relax and settle into sleep. For many of us, the inability to fall asleep, or the inability to stay asleep slowly chips away at our well-being and drains their stamina over the years. In this class, Matthew outlines the importance of recognizing our own sleep patterns, as well as herbs and supplements that can help us address these so that we can get more profound and quality sleep.

Topics Covered: 

  • Magnesium – different types
  • Ashwagandha – and best ways to use it
  • Muscle tension
  • Psychological tension
  • Anger
  • Night Sweats and hot flashes
  • Evidence-based medicine vs. patient-oriented medicine
  • Stages of sleep
  • Night Terrors
  • Jim McDonald
  • Mullein leaves and dreams/nightmares
  • Taking the pulse to test a remedy
  • and more!

This is for you if you...

or a client have difficulty falling asleep, staying asleep, or dealing with the draining effects of poor sleep quality,
want to be able to relax and sleep better using natural remedies, and not be groggy the next day.
desire to understand your unique sleep patterns and the specific remedies best suited for the pattern.

Upon completion, you will...

be able to identify common sleep patterns.
have a comprehensive list of herbs and supplements that can positively impact your sleep.
feel more confident in your ability to help yourself and clients to relax, settle into sleep, and wake up refreshed.
