The condition may refer to difficulty falling asleep as well as the condition of waking up prematurely or a sleeping pattern punctuated by frequent periods of wakefulness. Reflexology is recognised as helping promote relaxation and calmness, which in turn are an important foundation for a good night's sleep.
