I wrote a review of the SleepTracks program in December of 2011, and then updated it again in April 2012. My thoughts about the program have evolved over time, and after a recent conversation with Yan Muckle (the man behind SleepTracks), I thought it was time to review it again.
SleepTracks is really a sleep program in two parts:
The first part is an education program. Over a series of five online videos (total of a little more than two hours), Yan walks you through the things you need to know about your sleep:
- What sleep is, and how to capitalize on the cyclical nature of it.
- Optimizing your daytime and nighttime activities to optimize sleep at night.
- Diagnosing and repairing your particular sleep issue.
- Eliminate the factors that rob you of sleep.
- How to nap effectively.
The second part is a collection of downloadable MP3 audio tracks with embedded isochronic tones. These tracks form a backbone for the implementation of Yan’s program. They help guide your brain to the particular state you’re trying to obtain – whether that’s getting to sleep, staying asleep, napping, waking up, or anxiety. There’s also a track that can be used any time to break down a particular insomnia trigger in your mind.
I’ve had mixed results with the tracks themselves, but I’ve come to the realization that my particular insomnia is quite complicated, and can only be managed with a combination of several different therapies (things like sleep hygiene, routine, napping, etc.). I have found a place for the tracks, though. I find that the wake up, anxiety and nap tracks help quite a bit. I only wish I could figure out the correct combination for sleeplessness at 2am (most nights I sleep relatively well).
If I had to ask whether the price was reasonable for the value delivered with SleepTracks, I’d have to say yes. I think that the knowledge itself was worth the price of admission. The tracks are a bonus – and your insomnia might just be cured with them.
Note that the links to SleepTracks on this site are affiliate links, and I make a small commission if you chose to go with Yan and his program. This hasn’t affected my review of his program, and I’ve been honest in my opinions. Regardless of what I say, Yan offers a money-back-guarantee – so you can try the course and if it doesn’t work for you, you’re none the worse for it.
But if it does work, it’s a home run. Insomnia solved!

I’d also encourage you to read my previous review to see how my thinking has evolved over time.
Update 4/29/2013: Yan has a new launching page that describes a whole lot more about the system. Have a look.
