Before the worldwide presence, before the awards, before we even had a product, there was just an idea — we wanted to create incredible sleep products that promoted whole body health. Our goal was to improve everything from the joints to the nervous system to the spirit. When we looked at the market in 2018, we saw a lot of companies selling adequate beds and pillows. We didn’t see anyone pushing the boundaries of what’s possible. We didn’t see anyone willing to scour the globe for the finest, rarest, most treasured crystals in order to craft one of a kind sleep products that help heal the body, soothe the mind, and dramatically raise energy levels. We had to build that company ourselves.

Before going further, allow us a small diversion on crystals. You might be wondering why we’re so obsessed. It’s a pretty simple answer — they make us, and millions of our customers, feel a lot better. When we’re around the right kinds of crystals, we heal faster and wake up feeling more alive. We won’t sit here and claim to know exactly how it all works. But to be honest, you can say the same thing about many traditional healing practices. No one can pinpoint exactly how or why meditation, acupuncture, Ayurveda, or any number of non-standard healing modalities produce results. Yet, for thousands of years, people have felt better after doing those practices. That’s what matters. Crystals fall into a similar category. They’ve been part of healing ceremonies since we have recorded history. We want to use them to help a lot of people live happier and more productive lives.

If we were going to build the best sleep products, we knew we had to have the best crystals. Ordering in bulk after a quick Google search was not going to cut it. All of our founders embarked on a worldwide research and development project. We quickly zeroed in on Europe, and specifically Croatia, as being a hotspot for the kinds of crystals we felt would help people sleep better. After taking several trips to the region, we finally met with a group of local producers who had crystals that blew us away. Being around their crystals clearly boosted our energy and lifted our mood. We knew we’d found our suppliers.

The only snag was that the natural crystals we wanted to use are like gold. You can’t just snap your fingers and get as much as you want. They have to be carefully harvested, and quantities are limited. We had to figure out a way to maximize these crystal’s healing benefits while making them attainable by more than just a select few people.

When we hit on our answer, it felt like a revelation — we could create a custom blend of the crystals. We applied the same principles that led to the personal health revolution upon the discovery of vitamin that could be powdered and taken in capsules. We realized we could shave off the parts of each crystal that our experts identify as being the most energetic, combine them into a blend, then incorporate them into sleep products without losing potency. This was the birth of our patented crystal formulation — Biocrystals.

As soon as we laid on our first Biocrystal pad using this process, we knew we’d done something we were excited to share with as many people as possible. At that moment, Sleepm was born.

Everything we make is infused with Biocrystals and crafted in America and Canada to the highest standards. We are so proud to say that we’ve become the boundary pushing, health promoting, one of a kind company we always dreamed of being. It’s our greatest pleasure to be making people happier and more energized, one night at a time.

A Message from the President of Sleepm. 

First off, I just want to say thank you. There are a lot of sleep wellness companies out there, so the fact that you are considering Sleepm means the world to us.

I could use this space to talk about our biocrystal blend, our precision craftsmanship, or the countless hours we spent designing our best-in-class mattress. But instead I will simply ask you to consider one question about your sleep routine. It’s a question made famous by bestselling author Marie Kondo, and it gets to the heart of the matter: “Does it spark joy?”

If sleep does not currently bring you joy, I strongly believe we can help you change that. Sleepm products can calm your mind, energize your spirit, and promote healing in your body.

It can be very hard to get good sleep when you’re using low-quality products made by companies that mass-produce and cut corners. I know because I’ve been there. It’s why I started Sleepm. We do things differently, and our commitment to excellence will never waver.

I would now like to introduce you to the rest of our team. Each one of them cares deeply about our mission of improving the world’s health. We work diligently to create a world where everyone can get the restorative sleep they deserve.

Sincerely,

Eric Sternberg
