Stop taking pills. Start sleeping naturally.

Sleep Easily provides a medication-free sleep solution for the 1-in-3 people who have difficulty sleeping to help them sleep well and perform better during the day. Sleep Easily is a proven form of cognitive-behavioral therapy delivered through a mini audio player. It walks you through the five specific physical triggers to get you to sleep or back to sleep usually in less than 25 minutes. With this method you effortlessly relax your body, mind and emotions; and naturally fall asleep, back to sleep and even sleep more deeply. It’s not hypnosis or meditation—it’s a technique that is more effective than any sleep method you have ever tried. Most importantly, Sleep Easily is proven in an independent study to help 81.6% of participants.

Meet Richard Shane, PhD

Richard Shane, Ph.D., has been a psychotherapist since 1977. He is the Behavioral Sleep Consultant for New West Physicians, Colorado, with 100 providers serving 200,000 patients. From 2010 through 2014, he was the Behavioral Sleep Therapist for Lutheran Medical Center Sleep Center in Denver.

In 1991 as a result of a life crisis, Dr. Shane developed severe insomnia. He spent years internally exploring and resolving his own insomnia. Through that process, Dr. Shane discovered five specific body sensations that are triggers for sleep. He further researched the neurophysiology of sleep and developed the Sleep Easily Method.

In addition to working with clients in his clinical practice, Dr. Shane wanted to be able to help the millions of people who suffer from insomnia. Because the Sleep Easily method was clear, simple and easy to learn, Dr. Shane created an at-home program that could make Sleep Easily available to everyone.

For more than 25 years, Dr. Shane has helped thousands of insomnia patients sleep better. Over 140 physicians and health care professionals have referred patients to Dr. Shane.
