BEACHWOOD, Ohio, March 2, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- The NapMachine®, a pocket-sized media player that its inventor says facilitates one's ability to have a restorative nap, has been released by PowerNap (, a company that has developed and marketed safe and natural sleep aids since 2001.

Inspired by the success of PowerNap CDs that have been purchased by thousands of people needing a way to grab a quick nap, relieve jet lag or more easily fall asleep at night, the NapMachine provides portability and ease-of-use for the unique technology that induces a deep and rejuvenating sleep state without the grogginess that typically accompanies waking from a mid-day nap.

"There's been tremendous demand for a small, dedicated device that can deliver all of PowerNap's features and benefits," said Jonathan Husni, president of PowerNap and its inventor. "With the NapMachine there are no CDs or downloads and it can be used again and again to get what our customers say is the equivalent of 3 hours sleep in just 20 minutes." Husni is so confident of his invention he offers a no-questions-asked money-back guarantee.

Research has shown that even short periods of sleep—power naps—can reduce stress, increase alertness and improve overall health. A NASA study found that an average nap of twenty-six minutes boosted airline pilots' performance by one-third and experiments by NIMH (National Institute of Mental Health) showed that a midday snooze reverses information overload.

Throughout the PowerNap experience, the user hears only the pleasing sound of a waterfall while sound waves—inaudible to the user—play beneath. According to Husni, these sounds reduce Theta waves while increasing Alpha wave activity in the brain. "The PowerNap recording helps induce REM sleep, finally bringing the user to a refreshed state of heightened wakefulness," he said. "People wanting and needing a nap don't often have much time for it, so it's important that they fall asleep quickly. That's why our customers buy PowerNap products and refer them to friends."

Weighing just a few ounces and small enough to fit in a pocket or purse, the NapMachine comes complete with ear buds, a lanyard and AAA battery. The NapMachine is available now at the PowerNap Web site for $69.77 with free shipping within the continental U.S. For more information call 216-292-4878 or send e-mail to
