Ahhh… the difference a good night’s sleep makes. You’re more alert, in a better mood, able to learn and feel ready to take on the day. But parents and children alike have experienced sleepless nights, and if a child isn’t sleeping, at least one adult is not sleeping either.
It’s tough to get up in the morning after a poor night’s sleep. You feel tired, foggy-headed, and forgetful. Mood swings, behavioral problems, and lack of concentration may also appear. Studies show it’s even worse than that! Performing daily tasks, including driving, without good sleep is the same as being drunk!
Early start times at school require that students be engaged in learning before their systems are awake. Poor sleep quality exacerbates an already stressed situation. To have the strongest foundation to tackle the requirements of the day, a good night’s sleep is critical.
How does iLs help Sleep?
The Dreampad’s gentle music, delivered through patented technology, ushers the sleeper into a night of restful sleep that continues throughout the night. Research shows an improvement in sleep disturbance related to stress, anxiety and PTSD.
Safe and Sound Protocol (SSP)
The SSP is a five-day intervention that regulates the body’s physiological state, improving the ability to relax, unwind, fall asleep, and stay asleep.
With the calming, grounding input of bone conduction music, one becomes more connected with the body – more present, which leads to feeling less anxious about what the future might bring. While the Focus System narrows in on specific goals, common outcomes of a Focus System Program include not only being calmer and more optimistic, but also feeling as if there is a solution to any problem that might arise.

My Best Self
All iLs systems come with supervision, either from your current iLs-trained therapist or from an iLs-employed coach who can work remotely with clients who don’t have an iLs provider in their area. You can find an iLs Provider here or contact us to locate someone in your area.
The goal is not a quick fix; it’s lasting change.
Effectiveness of two non-pharmacological interventions for people who experience disordered sleep but do not have a medical problem causing the sleep disturbance
The Columbia University Medical Center study has compared the effectiveness of the Dreampad™ and the iRest yoga meditation method in a 2-week intervention period with healthy adults ages 25-65.
We transform lives of children and adults everyday.
So we got the pillow Saturday morning and tried it out for nap. OMG he was asleep in like10 mins. I thought maybe it was a fluke, so tried it for bedtime. Same thing! Then for nap on Sunday. We didn’t even have to lie down with him. You have no idea how much this has helped us. It would normally take him over an hour to fall asleep, and I had to lie down with him for every nap and bedtime. He has never ever fallen asleep without me next to him. I am so thankful for this.
