A good night's sleep is essential for our physical, mental,
emotional and spiritual wellbeing. There is ample evidence
that disturbed sleep leads to short-term and long-term detrimental
effects and effects of poor sleep on the immune system are
well documented in the scientific literature. It is also
well established that prompt and effective treatment of
sleep disorders results in a generalised improvement in
functioning and wellness.
At The Edinburgh Sleep Centre we believe that the accurate
assessment and diagnosis of sleep disorders combined with
a multimodal approach to the treatment of sleep disorders
is the only way to ensure a sustained and long-lasting improvement
in sleep and its related symptoms.
Our philosophy is based on the belief that every individual
is unique and requires a treatment plan that incorporates
the individual within his/her wider context as part of a
family, community and society.
This is why we combine science, medicine, psychology, social
and holistic methods in our approach to every individual
presenting with a sleep problem - we call this The Sigma
Sigma - In mathematics, the sigma symbol - Σ
- represents the sum of several parts, which seems appropriate
for a philosophy that's all about integration!
