What it is

Sleep is a basic necessity of life that is essential for our health and well-being. A lack of sleep can have a negative impact on your mood, thinking, relationships, work performance and long-term health.

Millions of Americans suffer from sleep-related disorders. In fact, more than 25 percent of people experience a sleep disorder at some time in their life.  Sleep disorders have been linked to high blood pressure, diabetes, depression, heart disease and stroke.

If you think that you or someone you know has a sleep disorder, we can help.

Allina Health's team of behavioral sleep medicine specialists are conveniently located at six Allina Health clinics and United Lung and Sleep Center.

Good to know

Consider consulting with a behavioral sleep medicine specialist if:

  • you or your child has difficulty falling or staying asleep
  • you would like to be able to sleep well without prescription or over-the-counter sleeping pills
  • you have trouble establishing or maintaining good sleep habits
  • shift work or travel is affecting your sleep quality
  • you or your teen can't fall asleep at night and has trouble waking up in the morning
  • you are troubled by nightmares

you have sleep apnea and are anxious about using a CPAP mask

Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia (CBT-I)

Our CBT-I therapy is much more than changing a few sleep hygiene habits. CBT-I involves working with a health care provider trained in the behavioral treatment of insomnia, usually over the course of four to six visits, to change habits, behavior and thinking that influence biological factors affecting your sleep.
