SHUTi™, or Sleep Healthy Using the Internet™, was created by a team of international experts, including world-renowned sleep expert, Dr. Charles Morin. Used in leading sleep centers, SHUTi™ insomnia treatment is effective at solving chronic insomnia in adults, naturally.
A safe and effective alternative to long-term medication for insomnia, SHUTi™ can be used without clinician interaction or in combination with treatment from your sleep clinician. Scientific research studies show that SHUTi™ can be as effective as cognitive behavioural therapy delivered in face-to-face sessions with a sleep therapist — but within the privacy and convenience of home.

SHUTi™ employs strategies from both behavioural therapy and cognitive therapy to address the problematic behaviors and thoughts that contribute to insomnia. But, SHUTi™ requires no interaction with a clinician, and research studies show that when it is used appropriately, SHUTi™ can be as effective as CBT delivered in face-to-face sessions with a therapist.

SHUTi™ is an engaging online program that is tailored to the needs of each individual user. It uses Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) techniques, which are proven to be the most effective long-term means of overcoming chronic insomnia and have no risk of dependency or side-effects. SHUTi™ is online and always available, allowing you to use it when it is convenient for you.
SHUTi™ has been empirically validated across Randomised Control Trials. Using prospectively collected diary entries for data accuracy, it has been proven to significantly reduce sleep onset, reduce wake after sleep onset, reduce the number of awakenings and improve sleep efficiency. It has also shown marked improvements in insomnia severity, such that 73% of participants no longer had clinical levels of insomnia after using SHUTi™, results similar to face-to-face therapy with a sleep therapist.
