How can I brace a loft bed in between two walls to stop it moving back and forth during vigorous nocturnal activity?

I bought a loft bed a few months ago. It's metal-framed and fairly sturdy -- much more so than an IKEA Tromso or the like. The problem is that it's very noisy and rocks back and forth. Especially when, um, I have company.
Now my room is quite small and I had an idea of bracing it between two walls. If I put it in the middle, there would be about half a metre between it and the walls on either side. Is there some sort of "reverse clamp" or bracing device, perhaps that worked a bit like a car jack, that I could use to sandwich it inbetween the two walls and stop the accursed rocking? Ideas/advice/alternatives welcome!
