While this may read like the advertisement for a wonder drug, it's actually an excerpt from Professor Matthew Walker's book 'Why We Sleep', in which he playfully describes the proven benefits of a full night of sleep. This passage is designed to make us think, and the message is clear - sleep is powerful. The positive effects listed are genuine, backed up by evidence from over 17,000 scientific studies to date.
The benefits of a good night's sleep cannot be overstated and Sleepstation can help you reach them.
Sleepstation is available on the NHS in England, so it's free to access there. Sleepstation can also be purchased privately across the globe.
This Christmas we've allocated a pot of funding within our Better Sleep Fund to provide support towards the cost of accessing Sleepstation privately for 100 lucky people and there are still funding slots available.
The funding is simple to claim and provides you with £95 credit towards the cost of Sleepstation Therapy or our Sleepstation Plus package so there's never been a better time to start.
All you need to do is register, choose your package and use the code GIFTOFSLEEP at the checkout to claim your credit.
Please note, funding is not available towards the cost of Sleepstation Lite. Funding is provided on a first-come first-served basis with limited availability. Funding will be allocated to the first 100 people who register with GIFTOFSLEEP codes.
If you'd like to purchase Sleepstation for a loved one and you would like a gift card, you can call us on 0333 800 9404 or email us at email@example.com to discuss our gift card options.
