In 1953 "The Father of Modern Sleep Science" Dr. William C. Dement, MD, PhD turned the study of sleep into a scientific field by recording brain activity and eye movement of subjects while they slept all night. During this study Dr. Dement was able to document actual sleep patterns (five stages) that people complete during a night's rest.
In 1970 Dr. Dement founded the world's first Sleep Lab at Stanford University. This lab used it's research to identify several sleep disorders and discovered that "drowsiness is a red alert." Dr. Dement came to the conclusion that "you are not healthy unless your sleep is healthy." Mounting research further strengthens this conclusion. There are now over 3,000 sleep clinics in the US.* Obviously, lack of sleep is a national concern.
Nikken founder Isamu Masuda in an effort to achieve overall wellness identified five areas of health. What is called the Five Pillars of Health. These pillars are Healthy Mind, Family, Society and Finances. The foundation for these five pillars is a great night's rest on the Nikken Sleep System.
