    Summarize your expertise in greater detail Richard Shane, Ph.D., has been a psychotherapist since 1977. He is the Behavioral Sleep Consultant for New West Physicians, Colorado, with 85 physicians serving over 170,000 patients. Previously, he was the Behavioral Sleep Specialist for Lutheran Medical Center Sleep Center in Denver.

    In 1991 as a result of a life crisis, Dr. Shane developed severe insomnia. He spent years exploring and resolving his own insomnia. Through that process, Dr. Shane discovered five specific body sensations that are triggers for sleep. Researching the neurophysiology of sleep, he developed the Sleep Easily Method which he used in his clinical practice. He wanted to be able to help more of the millions of people who suffer from insomnia. This led him to create an at-home program that could make Sleep Easily available to everyone.

    Over 140 physicians and health care professionals have referred patients to Dr. Shane and he’s helped thousands of insomnia patients sleep better.
