Our bestselling original 20-Minute nap recording NOW in uncompressed HD Audio and in your pocket!

Since 2001, thousands of people around the world have been benefiting from the instant rest provided by listening to our Power Nap recordings. Just listen to the Power Nap recording through headphones or ear buds and after 20 minutes, you'll feel as though you've had a long nap.

Sleep research shows that the natural sleep rhythm is three hours. Wake up after 180 uninterrupted minutes of rest, and you can function effectively. But who has three hours for a nap every day? The rich, retired and unemployed! You can only achieve the first two by avoiding the third. Getting caught asleep on the job or routinely being unable to perform at your best are good ways to get fired. In just one-third of your lunch hour, Power Nap can help you be alert and effective for far more of your waking hours.

Monitoring of EEG activity of subjects using Power Nap showed a reduction in Theta wave activity, a smoothing of Delta wave activity, a balancing of activity in both hemispheres and some increase in Alpha Wave activity. Delta activity was decreased and the waves were smoother with spiking moderated as Theta activity decreased. In other words, Power Nap provides a structure that enables the user to refocus his or her energies and tune out the environment and their own "brain noise" and be guided into a deeply relaxed state. If you use Power Nap according to the instructions, you can't help but feel better afterwards!

How does it work?
When you sleep under normal circumstances, your brain cycles through several different stages of Delta, Theta, Alpha, and Beta sleep waves. You drift from one stage of sleep to another—from deep sleep to dreaming to wakefulness and so on. These waves are inaudible to the human ear. Through advanced mastering technology, Power Nap piggybacks the sleep waves on audible “carrier waves” within the audible range. The result: you get the effect of the natural waves so you can sleep! Listen to the Power Nap recording through headphones. Your brain has no sensory input other than the carrier waves playing through your ears. When you hear more than 60 seconds of a certain frequency, your brain modulates to match it. Listening to the Power Nap recording through stereo headphones for 20 minutes guides your brain through a pattern of deep sleep that would otherwise require three hours!

Who can benefit?
• Anyone who works long hours and needs a break to re-focus.
• Students with rigorous schedules or preparing for exams.
• Busy mothers with young children.
• Overly ambitious persons who are looking for a few more hours in a day.
• Individuals who are in professions where their shifts change.
• People who travel between time zones.
• Physicians with a rigorous call schedule.
• Anyone needing a little extra lift from time to time.

Best app for a nap


I've also used my nap machine for a few years and it has really changed my life. Seriously. Now I'm really thrilled that I can get the same benefits on my phone so if I don't have my little nap machine with me, I'm not out of luck. In 20 minutes, you get the benefits of 3 hours of deep sleep. I'm always completely refreshed when it wakes me up. I just wish this had been available when my children were babies. If you ever have a bad night's sleep, you need this!

20 min of R&R


After 20 minutes you do really feel rested and refreshed. I've been using the power nap machine since 2009. It came highly recommended to me. To my surprise it really worked!

Now that I have the nap app for my phone I'm never without little R&R. I especially like I don't have to bring my nap machine with or remember where I put it.

I just took my first power nap from the app and it's exactly like the original. You will not be disappointed!

Happy with it


This is the greatest nap program. Been using the cd version for several years. It really works, 20 minutes and then it wakes you up.
