The beginning of life is often a very stressful experience, even for otherwise healthy babies. Prior to birth, all the infant knows is the warm, safe, and quiet surroundings of being in the womb. The beginning of life brings cold, danger, and noise. All of the noise, particularly the hospital environment, can be detrimental to the newborn receiving the sleep it needs.

Specifically referring to studies conducted in Neonatal Intensive Care Units, we know the importance of sound.

Ås reported by Rich Haridy in New Atlas, on May 29th, 2019, an important study at the University of Geneva, shows that music can help build the brains of premature babies.

At Genote, Health Music is a valuable resource for reducing stress and increasing stability in newborn children. The existing research did not make clear what types of music would be best for this purpose.

Sixteen newborns were exposed to the Genote Sleep Music Protocol for thirty minutes twice per day. Their heart rate, blood oxygenation, pain scale, and behavioral states were measured within a half hour of exposure to the music.

The majority of the newborns showed improvement in their capacity to self-soothe and transition to a more relaxed state. Their sleeping patterns also improved. The positive impact of structured music listening on healthy newborns indicates the need for further study on the impact structured music could have on sick newborns.

We tend to like some holiday tunes in their most simple version, with the original voice, and the original orchestration. Sometimes we are even bothered if anyone attempts to tamper with the rhythm, the tempo, the key signature and the qualities of The Voice. That is simply because our innate ability to understand, listen and even discern music elements is linked to specific correlations between music structures and brain functions. 


In response to numerous requests, here is the Back to School Sleep Tips Video.  We've spent the whole month of August training students to adopt a healthy sleep schedule and we are happy to report that each of them are sailing away, even during the initial, brutal Back to School days.

We invite anyone to give it a try.  One week is completely free!!!

Visit and select your age group (Child or Adult) and enjoy a good week of sleep.
