Sleep Medicine

Get the Rest You Deserve

sleep-clinicIn this world of relentless multitasking, it can be difficult to place a priority on sleep, especially when there’s always something that needs to be done or someone who needs your help. But sleep is not a luxury; it is a basic human need. Getting a good night’s sleep is just as vital to your health and well-being as eating the right foods and getting adequate exercise. Sleeping well—or not sleeping well—can affect every aspect of your life, from your job and relationships, to your mood, to your health and safety. Most people need 7 to 9 hours of sleep each night. But according to the National Sleep Foundation, the average woman aged 30–60 years gets fewer than 7 hours of sleep. And women are more likely than men to have trouble falling and staying asleep. Why? The changing levels of hormones not only throughout your life but throughout a month. And sometimes sleep issues experienced during menstruation, pregnancy or menopause can lead to poor sleep habits that are heard to break. If you’re having trouble falling asleep, not getting enough sleep or just not experiencing restful sleep, we can help. Our team of board-certified physicians and skilled staff combine academic-based medicine with cutting-edge technology to provide the most advanced sleep medicine care for women.
