ARE YOU SLEEPLESS WITH FEELINGS OF ANXIETY OR WORRY?
Is the coronavirus pandemic causing you added stress? If so, you are not alone. Heightened stress from potential health risks, financial instability and changed daily routines is causing many Americans to lose sleep. If you are finding yourself struggling to fall asleep, stay asleep, or if you toss and turn at night from chronic pain or worry about the coronavirus and related stresses, learn about our Behavioral Sleep Medicine (BSM) programs below, or call us 732-455-3030.
BEHAVIORAL SLEEP MEDICINE
Our BSM program responds directly to the significant need for treatment and patient preferences. Specific behavioral and cognitive techniques are applied to sleep problems, including insomnia, habituation to treatment for OSA (CPAP), nightmare management and problematic sleep-related eating behaviors. The most developed and widely used BSM approach is a collection of techniques used to treat insomnia, known as cognitive behavior therapy (CBT-I).
We offer comprehensive insomnia assessment and treatment of sleep disorders at our behavioral sleep medicine clinic. Assessment can involve an in-depth interview, careful behavior analysis, overnight sleep study as well as sleep diary completion.
Conditioned factors and poor sleep hygiene often produce or maintain insomnia. Change in behaviors related to sleep and attitudes and thinking about sleep can help to resolve insomnia. Behavioral therapy can be used instead of, or in combination with, short-term use of low-dose hypnotic medication. Behavioral therapy techniques can be as effective as benzodiazepine hypnotic medications in the treatment of insomnia. However, we do not recommend long-term and regular use of hypnotics, especially for older patients. Behavioral therapy has been found to produce improvements that are longer lasting than those of hypnotic medications. Insomniacs can learn skills to manage their own insomnia at home and allow them to develop a greater sense of control over their sleep problem.

The staff was fantastic! Everyone I was in contact with was super friendly, professional and informative. Even though I was hooked up to a ton of wires I had the sleep of my life in the Sleep Number Bed! The facility was clean, comfortable and inviting. If you need to have a sleep study done - go to Sleep Dynamics in Neptune. They are excellent!
My sleep study went very well. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. The study was extremely well at pinpointing my issues and setting me up with the treatment I needed. Highly recommend this facility
I was full of anticipation until a great staff greeted me and walked me through everything. The room was beautiful! Nicer than mine. Ha! My technician was Ruth and she was amazing. All the qualities one loves to receive . No stress what so ever there. Nice

The beds, and the rooms felt like you were in a five star hotel. Thank you sleep dynamics for helping my sleep, and for being the upstanding establishment that you are.
Sleep Dynamics provided a positive experience. The facility was very clean and all COVID precautions were taken. From start to finish the process was handled with ease and the staff was attentive to my needs.
I was nervous since this was my first experience with this type of thing. I had a physical issue and my tech, Bryan, assured me there was nothing to be embarrassed. about. The room was like a 5 star hotel. The mattress was able to be put at the firmness I wanted by the touch of a button. There was a sound machine wirh several different sounds. There was also an up to date tv that had cable as well as Netflix. I highly reccomed Sleep Dynamics. If I had any issues, all I had to docwas say ,"Bryan" , and he answered immediately.
My experience from the 1st phone call of booking an appointment to the actual sleep over was better than I ever expected. Everyone was friendly courteous & very professional. I will highly recommend Sleep Dynamics.

I had to have a sleep study in order to get a surgery I was looking into. I was referred to Sleep Dynamics by a friend. I am so glad I came here. The facility is immaculate and the staff, so friendly and caring. Jenn was my tech at the time. She was GREAT. She listened to me, and assisted me when needed. I was woken up at a decent time and able to go right to work afterwards. They did offer me a car to and from the facility but I declined , as I did not want to miss a days work. They made it super easy and care free, all I had to do was get through the night. I strongly recommend Sleep Dynamics and have referred many family and friends to the facility.
