We all know the difference a good night’s sleep can make. You’re more alert, in a better mood, able to learn and feel emotionally and physically ready to take on the day. But it’s not always easy to get a good night’s sleep.
The Dreampad is a patented sleep technology guaranteed to help you power down for a great sleep. The pillow plays music through gentle vibration, a process which signals your nervous system’s relaxation response, making it easier to slow down and peacefully fall asleep.
It is equally effective for all ages, and particularly helpful for those experiencing stress, hyper-arousal, anxiety and auditory sensitivity. An additional benefit of the Dreampad is that only the user can hear the music.
The goal is not a quick fix; it’s lasting change.
HOW IT WORKS
Select and play the music
Music travels internally as a vibration
The soft vibration signals the nervous system to relax
Every time we speak we hear ourselves in two way: externally and internally. Our voice carries through the air waves and enters our outer ear; simultaneously, the vibration from our larynx is carried by the body (primarily our bones, which are excellent conductors) to the inner ear. Have you ever noticed that your voice sounds different when you’re hearing it played back in a recording? The difference is because you’re not getting the resonance of the internal sound you receive when you speak.
The Dreampad technology replicates this natural process by playing music through transducers which convert the music into a vibration that travels internally to your inner ear.
We transform lives of children and adults everyday.
I run a small clinic and have quite a few clients with sleep and anxiety issues. The Dreampad has helped tremendously with prep for in clinic therapy as well as addressing sleep issues interfering with cooperation and performance. Have seen some amazing results.
The Dreampad has consistently improved the sleep of every patient who has used it. There has also been symptom reduction in patients suffering from PTSD, anxiety, depression and various childhood disorders. The Dreampad is easy to use and convenient as its thin profile fits into a suitcase for travel. The new lower price makes it more affordable for my patients.
No supervision is required.
COME REST YOUR MIND.
As the vibration moves toward the bony area surrounding your middle and inner ear, it is triggering your body’s relaxation response. Clinical data by researchers suggests that the calming effect of the Dreampad is a result of the vibrational music stimulating the vagus nerve, which in turn activates the parasympathetic nervous system (PNS). Our PNS helps us regulate stress – if we’re in a state of hyper-arousal, or elevated stress, the PNS is the part of our nervous system which brings us down to a calmer place where we can relax and fall asleep.
The Dreampad has been tested with various populations, including adults, children, war veterans with PTSD, children with autism and sensory processing difficulties.
COMPARATIVE EFFECTIVENESS OF THREE OCCUPATIONAL THERAPY SLEEP INTERVENTIONS: A RANDOMIZED CONTROLLED STUDY

Summary: The most statistically significant results of the study were the reduction in night time awakenings experienced by Dreampad users. Waking during the night is the number one symptom reported by those with stress related sleep problems as well as the number one problem reported by the study participants.
ILS DREAMPAD HEART RATE VARIABILITY (HRV) STUDY

Summary: This study measures the effect of the Dreampad on relaxation using heart rate variability (HRV); HRV is widely considered the most authoritative reference for the Parasympathetic Nervous System, which governs our relaxation response.
A SLEEP INTERVENTION FOR CHILDREN WITH AUTISM
Sarah Schoen, PhD, OTR, Assistant Research Director, SPD Foundation
Summary: “Changes were most notable in emotional, social and school functioning. All of the parents reported a positive reaction to using the Dreampad and were interested in continuing its use. Many said their children were going to bed/sleep more quickly, sleeping more soundly, waking up more easily and generally seemed more relaxed.”
