Best Uses: Basic Use

Describe Yourself: Professional, Practical

I bought this machine when I was going through a bout of insomnia... I needed some help to fall asleep and stay asleep. It really does work, I set it on 90 minutes and I cannot get through the entire program w/o falling asleep. I liked it so much I bought one for my Mom. My favorite is the white noise (sounds like a softer version of Niagara Falls) where she really likes the rain sound. I also noticed that my dog sleeps more soundly when it's on! Most of the the other sounds are really good too. It blocks noise well and promotes deep relaxation, I highly recommend this little machine :)
