1:1 Coaching

Although there are similarities among people with this condition, your experience of hypnic jerking is unique. After nights of relentless jerking, it can be very difficult to focus on an individualized plan to restore your health. Coaching can help you harness your strengths and accurately assess your needs. You will be supported in exploring triggers (food, medications, supplements, sleep position, physical exertion, or body pain) contributing to the problem. A goal is to decrease items that are inflaming you (key to getting some relief). Coaching can also help you mobilize support from those around you.

Virtual Support Group

Sign up to join our private emotional support group. The group provides an opportunity to “meet” others struggling with hypnic jerking. Together we create a healthy place to address the socio-emotional aspects related to living with this condition. 
 

Groups are limited to a small size (up to 8 participants at a time) and will be facilitated to preserve the integrity of the experience.

Please note that this is not a medical group - conversation on what alleviates hypnic jerking will be redirected to the Facebook group.

Hypnic Jerking Forum

Our "Think Tank"

An upcoming project involves the creation of a professional zoom “Think Tank” in which practitioners will be invited to further explore origins of the hypnic jerking condition. The task set to the group will be to identify patient questions that haven’t been asked, research projects that should be targeted, and other practitioners that should be engaged.
 

Following this forum, we aim to create our first symposium hosting both patients and practitioners (a “Hypnic Jerking Zoomposium”).
