FAU to Host Sleep Seminar
“ The Insomnia Solution: An Introduction to the Sounder Sleep System™”
BOCA RATON, FL (March 13, 2007) – Florida Atlantic University’s Division of Research, the Center for Body, Mind & Culture in the Dorothy F. Schmidt College of Arts & Letters and the Christine E. Lynn College of Nursing are presenting a special sleep seminar, titled “The Insomnia Solution: An Introduction to the Sounder Sleep System™,” with guest speaker Michael Krugman, MA, at noon on Friday, March 16 in the Christine E. Lynn College of Nursing lobby, 777 Glades Road, Boca Raton.
Sleepwalking, violent behavior, deranged driving and memory blackouts are possible side effects of widely-prescribed sleeping pills. Krugman, an internationally renowned author and teacher, will present a practical, drug-free alternative in his presentation. The Sounder Sleep System employs gentle, effective physical techniques called mini-moves to encourage better sleep. It’s a two-pronged approach.
By day, unique relaxation exercises effectively combat stress and make life more peaceful. “When your life is more peaceful, you sleep more peacefully,” said Krugman.
By night, sleep-inducing m ini-moves, done under the covers, hasten the onset of slumber and ensure quick recovery from unwanted awakenings. “These tiny movements are so gentle, even your spouse won’t know you’re doing them,” said Krugman. “And because they’re practiced while you’d otherwise be waiting for sleep to come, they literally take no time at all.”
Krugman has been the subject of an interview in Fortune magazine, articles in Brigitta (Germany), La Repubblica (Italy), and Sport Life (Spain), and over 40 radio interviews. His approach is used by nurses, physical therapists, and other health professionals all over the US, Canada, and Europe. Provider sites include UCLA’s Sleep and Autonomic Disorders Center, Stanford University’s Health Improvement Program, and corporate-sponsored “sleep competence centers” in twenty German cities.
