- Difficulty falling asleep
- Waking up often during the night and having trouble going back to sleep
- Waking up too early in the morning
- Feeling tired upon waking
Rebecca Ginder is trained in Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia (CBT-I), the only scientifically proven non-drug insomnia treatment. CBT-I, developed at the Harvard Medical School, teaches patients to conquer insomnia through increased relaxation and other sleep techniques. Unlike sleeping pills, CBT-I is a natural insomnia remedy that has no side effects. CBT-I is recommended by Dr. Oz, Good Housekeeping, and as a selected resource by Harvard Women’s Health Watch.
Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia (CBT-I) was developed by Dr. Gregg Jacobs based on his 20 years of extensive research and clinical practice at Harvard Medical School and the University of Massachusetts Memorial Medical Center involving over 10,000 insomnia patients. Dr. Jacobs’s research was funded by the National Institutes of Health and published in the Archives of Internal Medicine.
