• Harvard Health Newsletter
"This app employs the phone's microphone to assess your breathing, then establishes a realistically reduced "Target Rate." You can choose an audio accompaniment and set the length of your relaxation session. You then breathe in and out in sync with an image that pulsates at a gradually slower pace."

• Techland
"If you find yourself becoming overagitated calm yourself with Breathing Zone, a handy iPhone app that'll help keep the typical stress of fomenting unrest somewhat in check."

• The Huffington Post
"The soothing visualizer function shows the in-out pattern of the breath with a colorful flower-like figure."

"If you're a bit stressed or anxious, it's a good way to help you alleviate those feelings in just a few minutes."

• Jessica Garrett Mills, PhD
Breathing Zone takes the guess work out of meditation. It’s completely devoid of any new-agey-ness that might rub some folks the wrong way. It’s basically just guided breathing.

Best Meditation/Guided Breathing App

I suffer from anexity as well as hypertension. I've searched the App Store high and low for the best meditation and guided breathing apps and this is it. I like that it's not overly complicated and that you can successfully use the app in just minutes to relax and relieve stress. I remember the first time I used this program it made me feel so high and I started cracking up laughing I felt so good. I couldn't believe I had found something that relaxed me so well as I'm normally very tense.

Couldn't meditate without it

I'm new to meditation and my mind just goes wild. After using this app for 3 minutes, a 10 minute mediation doesn't seem impossible. I use it before every meditation session for 3 minutes to get down to 5 bpm. It makes controlling your breathing a 1000 times easier. I hate paying for apps but I highly recommend this one.

Recommended to insomniacs and the tense

As a psychologist, I recommend this as a sleep aid and for relaxation. For me, the quickest way to fall asleep is to use this app. And of all the relaxation and meditation apps out there, I think this one is the most effective. It's elegantly designed and utilizes effective technology. The ability to record your actual breathing speed is very helpful.
