HASH(0x90c84984) out of 5 stars this program does help 24 Nov. 2009
By Kindle Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I have a number of sleep CDs, and they basically fall into two categories: 1. the ones that help, and 2. The ones that don't do anything, or even keep me awake. This CD thankfully belongs to the former. It is divided into several sections which Dr. Gurgawich names at the beginning, but I've never heard more than the first two or three before I fall asleep. This is good, of course, but I'd like to sit down with the CD to listen and take notes, so I can see how to use the rest of the program.

I do better with CDs that have guided imagery than those with only music. My problem is that I think too much, and I just can't get my brain to turn off. So, even when I am terribly sleepy, the silence allows my mind to fall into a wakefulness. Having some words to focus on really helps this. (I must admit that even boring audio books often help; though reading before bed is too stimulating).

During the first part of the CD, while the doctor is introducing the program and it's various parts, I do some "progressive relaxation" exercises, which help relax my muscles and prepare me to focus on the words. What he calls "self hypnosis" is different from what people may normally associate with this term. He says that "all hypnosis is self hypnosis", and also that it is similar to the times when we go into a "trance" like daydreaming or disconnecting from the world at hand. He teaches you a trick to help you focus early on in the CD, where you put your thumb and finger together, breathe deeply and hold it for the count of five. This creates a conditioned response (my words) which you can use anytime you are trying to sleep--like being away from home, presumably when you don't have the CD with you.

So, if you are the kind of person who can't shut your mind off at night and go to sleep, or need some calming words to focus on rather than music, I think you'd probably get some relief using this program.

I have been trying to review this set of CDs for a few days, but every time I turn it on I fall asleep!

As a psychotherapist trained in clinical hypnosis, I start out paying attention to the type of induction he is using, but am quickly drawn in and dozing before I can parse out what he's doing. Granted, it's the end of the day and I am sleepy, but this really does work like a charm. I will recommend it to all my patients.

You might want to download it to your MP3 player for other situations in which you want to calm down, like travel, hospital stays, and life transitions.

The two CDs have five different options:

Easy Sleep
Sweet Dreams
Creative Sleep
Healing Sleep
Deep Sleep

It would be fun to use the creative sleep track for a month and see what it catalyzed.

HASH(0x90dc9ccc) out of 5 stars Hard to understand words 9 Nov. 2010
By April - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Dr. Gurgevich has a good program with interesting sessions. He seems quite knowledgeable about hypnosis. The problem is his voice, which is very unusual and sounds to me like he is speaking under water. He runs his words together and I find I can't relax trying to understand what he is saying..he also speaks very quickly. I find I comprehend the words he speaks a second or two after he says them. If I have the volumne louder , it helps, but then when he reaches the high pitch of his voice, it is not restful. The announcer at the beginning of each CD has a great voice and it is to bad he doesn't read Dr. Gurgevich's script. It is possible they could find a better system for recording his unusual voice. Sometimes, I can ignore his voice and have fallen asleep.

HASH(0x90c721d4) out of 5 stars Excellent self-hypnosis program 27 Jun. 2009
By Freudian Slips - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
It's always challenging to review self-hypnosis CD's because they are often a hit-or-miss proposition. They depend so much on the quality of the speaker's voice in addition to the specific content of the hypnotic induction-- what one person calls "soothing" another might find "grating." That said, the overall quality of these two discs is excellent and they achieve their promised results. Like other reviewers, I, too, didn't even hear much of the program the first time I used it because I fell asleep. That in itself is testimony to its effectiveness. I had to listen to the CD's during the day to actually hear what he said so I could write this review.

It is very clear that Dr. Gurgevich has better insight and empathy for his listeners than many other hypnosis practitioners. He addresses the common concerns of people with sleep issues. He understands that sometimes voices can disturb someone, as can room noises, as can the mind's natural resistance. He notes the value of closing your eyes (and turning off lights or TV) because visual stimulus keeps the brain awake. Here are some specific aspects of this program that differentiate it from typical relaxation/sleeping discs.

1. Dr. Gurgevich uses short but effective inductions. He doesn't do entire body relaxation scans (which can actually make anxious folks more anxious) but confines his inductions to simple breathing and thumb/finger exercises. Short and sweet-- and powerful.

2. He also divides sleep into different categories:
Easy sleep-- which is designed for people in difficult or unfamiliar settings like hotel rooms;
Sweet dreams-- which is designed to help people connect to their inner selves;
Creative sleep-- designed to help people solve problems or create new ideas in their sleep;
Healing sleep-- designed to promote self-healing; and
Deep sleep-- to help you feel completely rested when you wake.
You can choose one or two tracks based on your goals or you can play them all.

3. He does not include traditional "wake up" messages at the end of each track, so that you can play them with the knowledge that you won't be induced to wake up 30 minutes later. This is particularly helpful if you're playing all the tracks in a row. (Dr. G wisely knows that people with anxiety issues often worry about waking up at the end of the session.)

4. He uses a hypnotic style similar to Dr. Milton Erickson which uses storytelling and metaphor. If you are actually listening to every word (and he encourages you not to-- just let his voice be in the background) you might wonder why he's telling stories and not doing the TV version of hypnosis, i.e. "You're getting sleepy. Very sleepy." This is a different form of hypnosis that is actually more effective-- you're not being ordered to feel anything, so your conscious/subconscious mind doesn't resist as much.

5. He helps people who might normally resist hypnosis or have difficulty relaxing due to outside noises by helping you reframe those noises as a cue to further relax. These discs are excellent for anxiety reduction even if you don't fall asleep.

I think the only objection people might have to this set of discs is Dr. Gurgevich's voice. There's nothing wrong with it-- it's just that voices are so individual that not every voice works for every person. But he himself would encourage you to let the voice just be in the background-- maybe turn the volume down a little if you find his voice distracting.

Finally, here's my tip on how to use them. If you have an Ipod or similar mp3 player, load the discs onto it. Listen to the "Introduction" and "About this program" tracks one time (before bedtime) and then remove them-- you don't need them. Create a playlist that contains just the five sleep tracks. Then either use comfortable headphones or a bedside speaker system, turn on the playlist, close your eyes and relax. Tell yourself it's OK if you don't fall asleep, just listen. And see what happens. I suspect most of you won't make it through all five sessions.

HASH(0x90db1d68) out of 5 stars my opinion of the Deep Sleep tape 17 Oct. 2009
By Astrid A. Palmer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I like this tape it's much better than others I have listened to regarding the same subject. Does it work? sometimes it does, I often fall asleep without hearing the end
of the tape, other times I have to listen to it all and I'm still awake at the end, I guess it's just me, not the tape.
I'm just a lousy sleeper never can get more than 5 or 6 hours of sleep, I would love 8 but I think that would take a miracle! I have been that way for a long time. I hate to take sleeeping aids so I like listening to Deep Sleep better, I like the self healing part of the tape the best, I strongly believe we are capable of healing ourselves with proper relaxation and breathing techniques and thru self-hypnosis which is what the tape is all about. Dr. Steven Gurgevich has a very soothing voice and he works
a lot with Dr. Andrew Weil who I greatly admire for his integrated medicine beliefs. I would recommend this tape, it's much better than a lot of other ones that are out there.
