Spa Induced Sleep

Sleep Spa refers to a non-clinical situation, where people who have problems sleeping can learn more about their sleep challenges and how to correct them.  These individuals do not have a critical sleep problem as to qualify them for a sleep study program.  They go to a sleep spa to learn about sleep, to learn relaxation strategies, and to take these ideas home with them after a night of real rest. These destination spas offer Sleep Well Programs:

 

Rancho La Puerta, Mexico:  Sleep Well Program is a two-day program (two 45-minute sessions) that invites guests to evaluate their sleep patterns and suggests strategies and lifestyle changes. The goal is to return to a natural and deep night’s sleep -- one that is undisturbed and restful -- and wake up bright and energetic every morning, feeling refreshed and rested.

Miraval Life in Balance®, Arizona:  resident sleep expert Dr. Rubin Naiman conducts an informal "dream circle" to help you interpret unconscious musings.

Healing Sleep & Dreams is a discussion that considers sleep in terms of both its scientific and spiritual roots and offers practical guidance to achieving more restful nights.

Many people have a hard time sleeping when they are away from home.  Sometimes, by the time they get back home, they actually feel like they need another vacation to recover.  A survey from the Gallup Organization says the majority of Americans return from vacation more tired than before they left. Poor planning, later bedtimes and unfamiliar accommodations were cited as impediments to a good night's sleep.  Many resorts address these issues by improving the bedding in the rooms.  The Westin has the Heavenly Bed.  The Wellness Spa at The Benjamin in New York has a “Sleep Concierge” who will make sure that guests get everything they need to sleep peacefully. They offer their guests a selection of 11 different types of pillows from which to choose: down, upper body, buckwheat, satin, hypo-allergenic, water-filled, Swedish memory, magnetic therapy, a jelly neck roll, a five-foot body cushion, and a special anti-snore pillow.  In addition to the pillows, the hotel features The Benjamin Bed: a Serta™ mattress created exclusively for The Benjamin, with specially engineered convoluted foam cushioning and layers of fibers quilted to the mattress for a luxurious surface feel. The custom-designed Benjamin Bed is covered with Frette sheets and a down-filled duvet. Lavender-scented bathroom amenities help guests relax and prepare for bed. In addition to the luxurious sleep amenities, The Benjamin's windows are double-glazed with argon gas between the panes to help keep rooms quiet and restful.

Many resort Spas, are now offering Sleep Health massage and body treatments in their spas.
