Breakthrough Discovery

A calm mind leads to your most satisfying sleep.

The Link Between the Mind & Sleep

Renowned sleep researcher, Dr. Eric Nofzinger, drew on feedback from hundreds of people struggling with sleep and studied brain images to form his hypothesis—that the main cause of most sleeplessness was due to Racing Mind, or overactivity in the frontal cortex of the brain. He found that when this part of the brain shows a reduction in activity, a person falls into restorative sleep. This insight led to a revolutionary sleep solution.

Ebb® was born.

Precise Cooling Provides Revolutionary Drug-Free Alternative

Armed with a clearer understanding of what’s happening in the brains of those suffering from sleeplessness, Dr. Nofzinger began his development of a safer alternative to traditional sleep aids that reduces metabolic activity in the frontal cortex and helps calm the mind. His work led him to hypothesize that cooling this area (via the forehead) could quiet Racing Mind with no side effects.
