Review Content Interesting Purchased and used 3 nights with pleasure. Then loaned it to college grandchild who could not tell me how it worked... as she fell asleep (???). Then purchased 2 more and gave one to daughter who is still "trying it out". The third one kept for myself. However, cannot get it to work. Phoned the company and left detailed message, as requested but have not had response as yet. When I used the first one it was great. I would buy product again The product works and is easy to operate. So far so good We gave this as a gift to my father who has had some sleeping issues. It has only been a couple of days but he says it has really helped him fall asleep. Hope it will continue to work. Works for me I used to need to fall asleep with the TV on, and when the self-timer on the TV would shut the TV off, I would wake up and turn the TV back on multiple times per night- very tiring. This works for me both that I can follow the pulses and relax and go to sleep and not wake when it goes off. I have recommended this already to co-workers and family. Dont judge a book by its cover" none soothing natural sleep remedy use bodies own response to relax and fall asleep This really works! At last, a sleep product that really helps me sleep. It is small so I have it on the corner of the table beside my bed. The slowly pulsing blue light and synhronized breathing help me fall asleep quickly and go back to sleep when I wake up during the night. I have only tried the go-to-sleep mode but will be trying the others soon. The longer cycle, I think 24 min., has a longer breathing pattern so may be even more helpful for me. The gadget is small and light enough to take with me on trips and help with time zone changes that often make it harder for me to go to sleep. So far, so good. I enjoy the deep breathing the "Soothing Sleep Assistant" promotes. It also can be used as a flashlight. Relaxing This Soothing Sleep Assistant is definitely soothing. I find it helps me relax and often I fall asleep within the seven minutes of the shorter timed session if I combine it with focused metta meditation or repeating a mantra. It brightens the room far more than I had expected and I am reluctant to use it when I wake up during the night for fear that the bright light will wake my husband. It really works I find that I am falling asleep easier and staying asleep all night. It Works! I have trouble sleeping usually because my mind is racing all night and I cant get out of my head. Reading does not work for me because I am just excited to keep reading - TV is the same, but sometimes I can fall asleep with TV- then wake up an hour later - mind racing again. With this unit, its just "on" and I can focus on the lights again IF I wake up. I can focus on the lights and my mind is quiet. For what it costs, its worth a try: however I can see its not for everyone. You have to want it to work, kind of like calming yourself down. Id buy it again if I lose the one I have, I use it often, but not all the time. Blue light its comforting to know its always there and its worked every time so far. Disappointing I was hoping for more. It is a blue light that follows a synchronized flashing heartbeat rhythm and bright to fading light patterns. (The blue light is okay but I have one on my hepa filter thats annoying). This unit has to be held an arms length away facing you, (way close), and it emits blue light rays that could be hypnotic so although it may have potential the light would not project the distance to the ceiling or walls. Also, it came with a dead battery and looked as though it was thrown into the box so it could possibly be defective? I called but the girl didnt know anything about it. Works Greart Helps my wife sleep. Works like they say it would! Use product daily! Bought one for our daughter too! Perfect for Obsessive Thinkers As long as I can remember, I have had difficulty falling asleep due to ruminating/obsessive thoughts cycling through my head at bedtime. While melatonin made me sleepier, it couldnt quite counter the high powered brain activity of those thoughts. The Nightwave has me asleep in MINUTES. Think of it like a meditation technique. You sync your breathing to the slowly pulsing light. The combination of the perfectly timed deep breathing along with having a visual focus is the only thing that has ever distracted me enough to be able to fall asleep. Its like entering a trance or something. While I at first balked at the price tag of essentially a blinky light in a box, I now cannot put a price on how well it has helped me fall asleep. And no, you cant make one at home from spare parts; the precision timing in the controller is the real product here. PS - the other modes are good too. disappointing teenage daughter has great difficuly sleeping. thought this could be the answer, as she is good with meditation, etc... she says its useless, frustrating and not worth using. deeming that teenage moodiness, i tried it. shes right. A great product for insomniacs! Needed this to help sleep. Does the job! Really Works No longer do I have to lie awake hoping to fall asleep. This ingenious device allows me to just watch the soothing light pattern on the ceiling as it softly lulls me to sleep. And its a soft enough light that it doesnt bother my spouse. Works well I bought this for my 32-year-old daughter, who has never been able to fall asleep due to thoughts constantly rushing in on her. She said it helps her to stop being obsessed with her thoughts and just fall asleep. It also has settings to help with anxiety. It is a great product. Reliable Sleep Aid Really helps put me to sleep. I tried it the first night intending to see when it shut off and fell asleep before that happened! Sleeping now Used by my son, a returning vet who has trouble sleeping He said it has been helpful and so far seems to do the trick. This little gadget works! Ive used this for 3 nights in a row and all 3 nights I fell asleep and did not need to resort to sleeping pills, melatonin or other aids. Sometimes I had to push the button (#2 setting for the "wave") twice or even 3 times before I made it into slumberland. IT WORKS!!! Worked like a charm, fell a sleep much easier. Product is a lifesaver This was a gift to myself. My husband and I both benefit from this product. It helps us go to sleep, as it has been harder for me to sleep at night. I like the soothing light. It is true that you are off to sleep by the time the light shuts off. Great how you can control how long you want it to cycle through. Still Testing It Out I find it helps to close my eyes a little to reduce the brightness of the blue light. good product Useful product. Does what it says it would do. works like a charm- I got this for my son in law who has problems sleeping . He has a daughter who also uses it to help her fall asleep. works so well , all his kids ask to use it to help them go to sleep. I am thinking of ordering another one .
