Here’s a question that often comes my way: “I’d like to try cognitive behavioral therapy for insomnia [CBT-I], so where can I find a sleep therapist?”
The availability of CBT-I providers varies depending on where you live. Here’s where you’re likely to find help and where you’re not, and alternative ways to get the insomnia treatment you’re looking for.
I don’t often write about technology developed to improve sleep. I’m frankly skeptical that most products could help me any more than the daily exercise I do and the habits I changed after going through CBT for insomnia.
But a few items have caught my attention recently because they sound like they have genuine potential to help—two I’ve blogged about before and one brand new. See if you agree.
Would you wear a cap at night if it helped you fall asleep faster?
You may soon have the opportunity: the cap, a medical device for the treatment of insomnia, has received approval from the FDA, clearing the way for it to come to market.
