PORTLAND, Ore., June 12 For the millions of people wholong for a good night sleep but find traditional remedies such as drugs, soundmachines or natural supplements ineffective, help is on the way. CoherenceResources, Inc. is announcing the first sleep-assisting device that silentlyhelps the user adjust his or her breathing rhythm to a pattern that deliversnatural sleep.

The NightWave(TM) Sleep Assistant facilitates a state of relaxationthrough a simple pre-sleep breathing routine guided by a soft blue lightprojected into the darkened bedroom. The luminance of the light slowly risesand falls. With eyes open, the user synchronizes his or her breathing with thewave of light as its movement becomes slower and slower. After a short time,the person falls asleep and NightWave(TM) shuts off.

"Our solution is for people who experience common insomnia due to stress,an overly active nervous system, restless thoughts, feelings of agitation, orjet lag," says Stephen Parsons, Founder of Coherence Resources. "Unlike othersleep remedies, the NightWave(TM) is silent, requires no wires or masks,doesn't have the side of effects of drugs, and in the long run is lessexpensive and more effective than herbal remedies or other supplements."

"We don't know of any other product on the market that does this," reportsSherry Duwe, clinical director or the Sleep and Mood Clinic of Oregon. "TheNightWave(TM) is a welcome addition to our set of professional tools forhelping people with their sleep."

Based on scientific research, traditional health practices and ancientYoga breathing techniques, it is widely known that proper breathing canimprove day-to-day health as well as sleep patterns. Deep breathing works wellbecause it activates the parasympathetic branch of the involuntary nervoussystem causing a "relaxation response" in the body. Muscle tension drops,stress levels go down, heart rate variability (HRV) becomes smooth, bloodpressure normalizes, and mood becomes softer.

NightWave(TM) also helps travelers quickly adjust to time zone changes byeasing travelers into sleep. It is rugged, easy to carry, and will notaccidentally activate inside luggage. Coherence Resources is so confident inthe effectiveness of the NightWave(TM), that it offers a money back guarantee.
