Why Companies Are Loving Sleep Easy

Corporate and Professional Testimonials

"As we have a significant number of employees who work graveyard, swing and rotating shifts, we are constantly searching for ways to address healthy sleep habits. The Sleep Easy program has been helpful to us as it addresses a behavioral approach to treating insomnia - rather than a pharmacological one - which we believe is a better long-term solution."

- Robin Gerstler, Manager, Coors Wellness Center, Coors Brewery Company, Golden, CO

"Sleep Easy for the scientists…
Through the neurophysiological pathways implicated in the Sleep Easy methodology, the process changes the brain wave activity from beta waves (waking) to alpha waves (relaxation and light sleep), Sleep Easy leads to theta and delta brain waves (deeper sleep).
For the rest of us…
Sleep Easy helps your heart beat more slowly, decreasing your blood pressure as well as the force of your heart, which helps for a smooth entrance into sleep."

"The Sleep Easy program is unusual as it offers comprehensible guidance for learning the body sensation cues that unlock the sequence of falling asleep. He has broken down the extremely subtle bodily, and mental markers that occur naturally when we are in the process of falling asleep. Like most people, I was not even aware of these small but essential components of sleep. I found it easy to learn how my body and mind can work together to create more rest and well being in my life.
My sleep improved immediately after listening to the Sleep Easy program. I am happy to recommend this to my many patients who have trouble sleeping."

"I've had fibromyalgia for ten years and, because I'm very sensitive, I can't take any of the drugs they give. In addition, insomnia runs in our family. My insomnia was serious. I went through sleep program after program, and nothing ever worked for me.
From the first night I used Sleep Easy, it was amazing. From the minute I started using it, I could tell there was something different about this; something that really pulled me down into sleep and I could feel the whole chemistry in my body changing. The first night I used it, I slept for the first time in months, and ever since, I've been sleeping more than I ever had. This is so incredibly helpful.
This has been a miracle for me and I desperately needed one. This is really groundbreaking, perfect, and it amazes me how you figured it all out. I thank you so much."

"I've had every type of insomnia off and on for over 25 years. In the past year I began to need to take some sort of sleep medicine every night in order to fall asleep.

I have still not needed anything except these methods to get the best rest I've had in years. This is a true miracle!"
