To Sleep....Perchance to Dream!

      Do you suffer from insomnia or maybe just have difficulty getting to sleep at times? Perhaps you have tried sleeping pills, natural sleep remedies, and even stronger sleep inducing drugs. Some of the drugs used for insomnia and sleep problems have undesirable side effects. Now there is an alternative sleep aid that has none of these problems.

      The solution uses a special kind of sound called hemisync delivered to your ears through a special pillow with embedded high fidelity stereo speakers. In the hemisync system, the sound to each ear is offset by a small and constant frequency difference. Research has shown that the brain waves synchronize with this offset frequency, or beat frequency. By setting the beat frequency to the brain wave frequency that corresponds with sleep, the sound helps the brain get into a sleep state.

      The SleepSonic™ Package , offered by a new company called Sleepsonic™ consists of the Sleepsonic™ high fidelity stereo speaker pillow and the special hemisync CD's. You add your own CD player and a comfortable bed and its off to sleep land.

      Sleepsonic™ (Patent Pending); is an innovative mini-pillow with a built-in pair of custom-made digital stereo speakerphones. Its versatile design allows Sleepsonic™ to be used on its own or on top of your personal sleep pillow. It is also great as a portable travel speaker pillow or as a massage headrest / speaker pillow.

Sleep better with sleepsonic and Hemisync.
Get to sleep faster with sleepsonic and Hemisync.

      Sleepsonic™ uses a compact design for portability and comfort. It uses a soft and plush polar fleece superstretch fabric casing protects the Sleepsonic™ stereo speakerphone assembly. The speakerphones are high fidelity high-end speakers. Molded / fabricated web foam pads hold the left and right speakerphones in place. It is durable and soft to increase your sleep comfort.

      You can use your Sleepsonic™ pillow and hemisync CD's with any digital, high fidelity, CD/tape, MP3, PC, portable, or home stereo system. Fall asleep faster and sleep deeper.

Sleep easily with sleepsonic pillow and hemisync CDs.

The Sleep Problem

      In 1910, Americans averaged nine hours of sleep per night. Today, it's seven. Hundreds of TV channels, all-night stores, and the Internet are not there to help you sleep. There's great temptation not to sleep.

      Sometimes it's not just the temptations, it's the need to work. There are 20 million night-shift workers in the U.S. who are forced out of their natural rhythms. Sleep deprived workers that impact public health and safety add a new dimension to the health and sleep issue.

      According to James Walsh, Executive Director of the Sleep Medicine and Research Center at St. Luke's Hospital in St. Louis, no more than 5 percent of adults function well on less than six and a half hours of sleep. Take the President. "Just look at him," says Walsh. "He admits that every significant mistake he's made has been due to the fact that he's been tired."

      Sleep is naturally, inevitably, and always negatively influenced by aging. "Just as hair turns gray, sleep falls apart," says Kavey. Apnea hits hardest in men 30 to 60, and the prevalence of insomnia increases for both sexes.

      The only thing that is known to induce deep sleep naturally is exercise. Exercise is something we get less of as we get older, and our sleep becomes increasingly shallow and fragmented. We wake up early and fall asleep at the movies. The restorative effects of sleep on our endocrine and cardiovascular systems diminish in turn.

      A study by the National Commission on Sleep Disorders Research found that sleep disorders may affect more than half of all persons over 65 and can precipitate certain mental and physical illnesses.


      Insomniacs resort to all sorts of tricks to fall asleep, and the experts say many of them are valid. These 10 tips, none of which involves medication, are worth trying:

  1. Stay in bed seven to eight hours a night and rise at the same time seven days a week.
  2. No caffeine after early afternoon.
  3. Aerobic exercise increases deep sleep, but don't do it close to bedtime.
  4. Don't eat or smoke close to bedtime and avoid excessive alcohol consumption.
  5. Many herbal teas are soothing; valerian root has proven sedative qualities.
  6. Don't work or do anything exciting just before bed.
  7. A warm bath is relaxing, and cooling down after it will make you sleepy.
  8. Keep your bedroom dark, quiet, and cool.
  9. Listen to the radio. You can close your eyes and concentrate on something other than what's bothering you. TV doesn't work for most, as the flickering stimulates.
  10. Perhaps the best way to meet your daily sleep requirement is to add a short nap during your body's other natural downtime, between noon and four p.m."

The Sleepsonic and Hemi-Sync® Sleep Solution

      Hemi-Sync® was pioneered by researcher and inventor Robert Monroe. Hemi-Sync, short for hemispheric synchronization, is a scientifically and clinically proven audio-guidance process that works quite simply by sending different sounds (tones) to each ear by stereo headphones or by a stereophonic pillow like Sleepsonic.

      The two hemispheres of the brain then act in unison to “hear” a third signal--(A Binaural Beat) the difference between the two tones. This is not an actual sound, but an electrical signal that can only be perceived within the brain when both brain hemispheres are working together.

      The result is a focused, whole-brain state known as hemispheric synchronization or “Hemi-Sync," an optimal condition for improving human performance.

      Specific combinations of Hemi-Sync signals, for example, can help individuals achieve laser-like focus and concentration. Different Hemi-Sync signals are used to facilitate profound relaxation, expanded awareness, or other desired states.

      The sensation of auditory binaural beats occurs when two coherent sounds of nearly similar frequencies are presented one to each ear with stereo headphones or speakers.

      When the brain integrates the two signals, it produces a sensation of a third sound called the binaural beat.

      Binaural beats originate in the brainstem's superior olivary nucleus, the site of contralateral integration of auditory input. The binaural beat is neurologically conveyed to the reticular formation which uses neurotransmitters to initiate changes in brain-wave activity.

      Depending on the intended goals, Hemi-Sync products combine music, verbal guidance, or subtle sound effects with Hemi-Sync to strengthen its effectiveness. Users remain in total control as these recordings do not contain subliminal messages.

      Hemispheric synchronization occurs naturally in daily life but typically only for random, brief periods of time. Hemi-Sync can assist individuals in achieving and sustaining this highly productive, coherent, brain-wave state.

      Monroe’s work inspired an entire industry of mind/brain products. After decades of research and thousands of lab sessions, the extraordinary Hemi-Sync process remains unparalleled in its ability to assist us in harnessing our human potential.

      For the sleep aid application, the Hemi-Sync music or sounds are calibrated to produce a binaural beat that promotes the brainwave patterns of deep sleep. The Sleepsonic pillow is the perfect delivery system that allows you to remain comfortable all night long.
