Science has finally caught up with the traditions we have been practicing for thousands of years! Our app combines the best of ancient deep breathing practices and modern technology. Did you know that your heart rate can actually rise and fall with each breath you take? This represents a state known as autonomic nervous system coherence, which is only reached during periods of low stress.
Using our groundbreaking heart rate monitoring technology, you can now turn your phone into a real-time biofeedback device without any external hardware - the perfect addition to any meditative practice! We show you a continuous graph of your heart rate, so that you can see whether your body is responding to your breath in every moment.
Deep breathing has proven beneficial effects on lowering stress, helping you sleep better, reducing anxiety, lowering blood pressure, strengthening your immune system, improved overall well being, and more! With just 5 minutes of practice per day, you will be amazed how much of a difference it makes.

I love this app
This is an incredible app. At first, it was hard for me to finish the whole 2 minutes cycle of deep breathing. But once I caught onto how my breath influenced my heart rate, I felt addicted to slowing it down and overall reducing my stress. I use Stress Check to find out how stressed I am and then I come straight to this app and see how many points I can lower my stress.
I think deep breathing and conscious breathing is a highly underrated technique. If more people could put life on hold for a simple 2 minutes and focus on their breathing, this world would be an overall happier and healthier place.
Run, don't walk to get this app! It will literally, save your life!
Very innovative but could be so much better
This app is truly innovative. It does the same thing as my Stress Eraser -- a medical device costing $200 -- for a fraction of the cost. It works when you get the hang of it, but could really use more biofeedback, beyond the waveform. Some features I'd like to see:
* Sound feedback so you can close your eyes
* Relaxing soundscapes and/or guided meditations
* Spoken or written in-session encouragement and suggestions based on your performance, e.g. "Try slowing down your exhale"
* More explanation on how to read the waveform
I'd be happy to pay extra for these features. I'm giving it four stars for now with the hope that an update or pro version will come soon.
Most useful app I have
I've been wanted this type of app of years! I bought the emwave product but it require you to be at a desktop. This app allows you to get some biofeedback practice in whenever and wherever. I love it. My only suggestion would be to provide more detailed instruction on how to correctly breath and achieve the pattern that will get you points. I've had the app for a week and still have trouble getting points consistently. However, I do notice a huge calming effect on myself after using the app for 5 min. I'm now a daily user of almost all the apps from them.
