Can Sleep Giant help with cure insomnia?
[Insomnia definition: a difficulty in getting to, staying asleep, waking up or feeling unrested in the morning]
Yes, Sleep Giant is designed to assist with all aspects of the sleep process with specific program categories that address aspects of sleep that are facets of insomnia – with “Wind Down”, “Sleep Deep” Albums (throughout the night), to “Wake Up” program libraries that can be custom programmed in sequence in Sleep Giant’s Sleep Deck Console.
The most common reason people have difficulty with sleep is due to an “overactive” mind – by being preoccupied or anxious about the events occurring in our lives. Although Sleep Giant creates a highly effective “acoustic atmosphere” to support an effective and enhanced sleep experience – sound based sensory input will not override your own mind/thought processes.
Can Sleep Giant help me get to sleep easier?
Yes, you can add a Wind Down track to any custom Sleep Deck selection.
The Sleep Giant “Wind Down” program library contains a comprehensive selection of zero-G Sleep programs that creates an “audio atmosphere” designed to help you gradually “wind down” from wakefulness to being ready to sleep naturally and easily.
Will Sleep Giant help me wake up more easily?
Yes, Sleep Giant has two programming methods to help you wake-up smoothly and easily:
– Method 1 – Sleep Time Mode: You can simply add a Wake-Up track to any Sleep Deck you create
– Method 2 – Wake Time Mode: Uses Sleep Giants proprietary Sleep Ai to “wake your brain up” at your specified time. End the pain of waking up with alarm clock shock forever!!
Do I need to listen to Sleep Giant everyday?
The short answer is no, but we recommend that new users use Sleep Giant 4-5 days per week initially with the majority of people finding they enjoy the benefit of nightly use throughout the week after the initial starter period of a couple of weeks.
Like with all health promoting activities, the more consistently you use Sleep Giant the greater the benefit you will experience, not only in sleep quality but also in all the other aspects of life affected by your sleep as well.
How do Sleep Giant’s “precision naps” work?
Sleep Giant’s “full-cycle” precision nap technology is designed to address the most difficult aspect of napping – waking up fully afterward. Sleep Giant’s Nap Recovery Library has a range of naps from 15 to 90 minutes all built with full-cycle Awake>>Asleep>>Awake technology that helps you get into deep sleep quickly for maximum recovery then bringing you back up to wakefulness again so you can continue your day with the benefits of boosted brain and physical energy.
Can I still take my medications?
Yes, Sleep Giant is not contraindicated with any medications. However, it is worth noting that all drugs (prescription and otherwise) disturb the finely balanced sequence of brain states that sleep is. Although medication may seem beneficial in helping you initially get to sleep (or even stay asleep), it has been shown that they degrade overall sleep quality.
What about supplements for sleep?
You can continue to take your natural sleep supplements as there are no contraindications with Sleep Giant.
Does Sleep Giant help with Jet Lag?
Yes, Sleep Giant’s original design purpose and success was in assisting elite athletes in maintaining their performance levels while enduring the rigors of a global travel and competition schedule.

– During travel to assist with “in-flight” sleep or deep relaxation
– Upon arrival at your destination to a) assist with recovering lost sleep as quickly as possible, and b) to assist in recovering as quickly as possible from time differentiation when traveling across time zones

Most importantly, Sleep Giant helps you to get the sleep you need when you need it, no matter when or where you are.
