When you look at these numbers and at the research linking sleep disorders to a wide range of health issues like obesity, stress and anxiety, infant and child abuse, and other more subtle issues like lack of concentration, drowsiness, including dozing at the wheel, and work related safety issues, you know there is a huge problem that needs to be addressed
Yelm, WA (PRWEB) March 19, 2007
Sleepsonic™ (http://www.sleepsonic.com), an internet business based in Washington State, joined a large number of other businesses supporting the National Sleep Foundation's 2nd annual online auction. Bidders have the chance to bid on fantastic items such as stays at the Marriott, Ritz Carlton and Wyndham luxury hotels, passes to the Masters in Augusta, tickets to NY Giants games, a chance to be on the Oprah Winfrey show in Chicago, art, jewelry and Sleepsonic's tailor-made Sleep Packages: the SS-200 Personal Sound Delivery System with a selection of audio tools and an eye mask to enhance the sleep experience.
Sleepsonic.com is partnering in this charitable event with long time customer, HemiSyncForYou.com (http://www.hemisyncforyou.com), a major online distributor for the Hemi-Sync® products pioneered by audio engineer Robert Monroe. Bundled with the sleek, elegant Sleepsonic Stereo Speaker Pillow are best selling Hemi-Sync® audio titles Catnapper, Sleeping Through the Rain, Super Sleep and Surf. Users experience gentle guidance for the 30 minute power snooze of Catnapper or Surf's soothing ocean sounds to take them through relaxation to deep, restful sleep.
Sleepsonic.com is focused on offering a variety of products to help alleviate the growing sleep disorder problem in the US. The NSF estimates over 70 million people suffer from some form of sleep disorder in the US alone. The resulting losses in work effectiveness and safety issues are estimated to be in the billions of dollars per year.
"When you look at these numbers and at the research linking sleep disorders to a wide range of health issues like obesity, stress and anxiety, infant and child abuse, and other more subtle issues like lack of concentration, drowsiness, including dozing at the wheel, and work related safety issues, you know there is a huge problem that needs to be addressed," says the sales and marketing team at Sleepsonic.
"We see an opportunity to help these people with innovative, non-invasive sound technologies that employ the user's own brain and brainwaves to bring on the required neurological activity to cause the body to relax and slip easily into sleep. Enhancing that, the Sleepsonic pillow is comfortable and allows use of the audio products all night long without the discomfort that headphones might bring. In addition, the sounds are discretely delivered to the users so as not to disturb anyone else sleeping close by, nor allow mothers or caregivers to miss other important sounds such as babies, children, alarms, etc."
One of Sleepsonic's customers says it this way, "I use Sleepsonic with my audio programs for relaxation and sleep. It's more comfortable than the earphones I used to wear. I can turn my head from side to side and drift away."
Sleepsonic.com, a new online store, is the brainchild of two long-time Web entrepreneurs who work with innovations in audio technology applied to such diverse areas as sleep disorders, relaxation and stress management, just to name a few. Although a large number of audio products were available, the challenge was getting this to the listener's ears comfortably and effectively, while at the same time, not disturbing partners or other family members. Thus was born Sleepsonic™.
