10 Sleep Myths Debunked


Posted By on Jun 26, 2017

Modern sleep research didn’t really begin until the middle of the 20th century with the discovery of REM sleep in the 1950s.  So, it is no wonder there are so many misconceptions and myths surrounding it. Before REM sleep was discovered, sleep was regarded in the scientific world as a “passive process,” with little being done to study it. Therefore, with the lack of available pragmatic evidence, sleep has been surrounded by many...

Client Reviews

"I was especially impressed with Andrew the Respiratory Therapist who reviewed my study with me and answered my questions. Andrew thoroughly explained everything about the Cpap machine-from start to finish. I never felt rushed and was assured I could contact him with any additional questions or needs. Andrew told me he would follow up with a call in a week and he did. I believe this center performed the study appropriately and the added benefit of having Andrew teach me about the machine and what to expect was a bonus."

"I recommend them highly!! I took my 2 year old daughter for a sleep study and was very impressed. Our sleep technician was amazing with her, very patient and kind. The DVD we brought to watch while getting her hooked up got stuck in the TV and they vowed to return it. We got a call the next day checking on our daughter and saying how sweet she was, they mentioned the DVD. Several days later, we received the DVD plus a new copy of the Lion King with a nice note. They are very good at what they do and if they can make a 2 year old feel at ease, they can probably do the same with anyone!!"
