Why Glow Sleep Services? 

Glow Sleep Services utilizes an integrative approach to look at all systems to determine the root of sleep challenges. In order to make any lasting improvements to one's sleep and mental health, all of the factors contributing to disrupted sleep must be explored. In this way, Glow Sleep Services focuses on long-term changes, rather than quick fixes that will only temporarily mask sleep disturbances. 

As a Registered Social Worker specializing in sleep, Julia Glowinski, MSW, RSW  also specializes in sleep issues in conjunction with mental health issues, developmental delays and sleep disorders. ​​

Coverage for social work services is often provided through private extended health insurance plans, workplace benefits, or employee assistance plans.

SLEEP MATTERS. HERE'S WHY. 

MENTAL HEALTH & MOOD

Sleep disturbances are significantly correlated with depression, anxiety, irritability, substance abuse and suicide.

Sleep deprivation impairs mood and is a major predictor of postpartum depression. It can cause anger, sadness, impulsivity and lack of motivation.

PHYSICAL

WELL-BEING 

Healthy sleep can foster well-being and help to boost the immune system. During sleep,  we are healing and repairing our heart and blood vessels. 

On the other hand, sleep deprivation may make it more difficult to fight off disease and infections. 

GROWTH & DEVELOPMENT

Sleep fosters growth and development. While sleep is important for all ages, it is particularly important for the physical and mental development of children, so that they reach their full potential.

 

Sleep also plays a significant role with regard to puberty and fertility. 

COGNITIVE FUNCTIONING

Sleep plays an important role in memory consolidation. It helps us make decisions, think clearly,  problem solve and pay attention. 

Without quality sleep, our productivity and reaction times decrease and our risk  of traffic collisions increases.
