Glow Dreaming launches world-first; ICRA

Science, research and medicine are at the heart of everything Glow Dreaming does and today we are proud to launch the world first I.C.R.A. (Individualised Circadian Rhythm Analysis)

ICRA works by creating an individualised sleep program for your family after a detailed analysis that identifies the personalities of both you and your child.

Throughout your ICRA sleep program, our AI Engine will regularly check in ensuring you stay on track, refining your program in real-time so that you achieve sleep success.

The algorithm behind our ICRA has been created using over 67 peer-reviewed, scientific research papers and a large data pool of tens of thousands of parents just like you. (see reference below)

Glow Dreaming has consulted with specialised sleep doctors from the Epworth Hospital and Royal Children’s Hospital to help develop, refine and test this program. There is truly nothing like this anywhere else in the world.

Glow Dreaming continues to evolve and push the boundaries of achieving long-lasting, improved sleep. Glow Dreaming’s Premium Bundle now comes with a world-first interactive tailored sleep program, ICRA. Every little detail in the Glow Dreaming is backed by science. Yes, others have mimicked our product and they've copied the features, but they haven't understood the science behind why and how it works. We don't include anything that is detrimental to sleep or creates dependencies on the product itself.

There are no gimmicks with Glow Dreaming; The Unit has been designed to teach the body how to sleep better and then not be required anymore.

Originally, Glow Dreaming was the first in the world to combine Red LED Light Therapy, Pink noise and an Ultrasonic Humidifier all in one. Glow Dreaming is so much more than just a device and it’s in the detail and science that real sleep success is achieved.

Glow Dreaming works with only the world’s leading experts; Dr. Ir. Stéphane Pigeon out of Belgium has worked with NATO and Roland Corporation and helped develop the sound frequency and speaker location in the Glow Dreaming. There is a very specific reason the Glow Dreaming speaker is located and designed the way it is. These little differences are extremely significant when it comes to sleep.

The Glow Dreaming 100% organic, medicinal grade essential oil has been made and designed by Dr. Bo Hendgen, a world-leading pediatric naturopath. Dr. Bo has won numerous awards and the quality and sophistication of the oil she produces are unparalleled. When you consider that the humidified oil is absorbed into the bloodstream within 11 seconds you want the world's best creating it specifically for your child.
