Abstract (Document Summary)

That's why [Galina Mindlin] hopes brain music therapy, which has been used in this country for a few years, will help the sleepless population. Here's how the treatment works: The patient wears a rubberized mesh cap that is hooked up to a computer. The computer uses an algorithm to convert the brain waves to classical music. The result is a personalized CD with two tracks - a relaxing 12-minute track for before bed and an activating one (lasting three minutes) that gets you going in the morning.

The treatment costs $550, which may sound like a lot for a CD. But Karen Goldberg of North Woodmere says it's worth every penny. The elementary school teacher had had trouble sleeping since she was a child but didn't want to rely on pills. She completed an hour- long procedure with Mindlin and found that the CD worked within the first week. "I thought it was an easy solution to a very big problem, because it's so easy to pop that CD in and let everything relax."

Then they tried the Anti Snor Therapeutic Ring ( According to the company, the ring, which has two bumps on the inside, uses acupressure - an ancient Chinese healing art that applies pressure on different parts of the body to relieve stress. In this case, the ring is worn on the little finger. [Michael Galindez] says he felt no discomfort, while [Evania Vasquez] noticed an immediate difference: "He snored in the beginning for about an hour, and then it got lower, as though someone turned the volume down."
