Breathe2Relax is a portable stress management tool which provides detailed information on the effects of stress on the body and instructions and practice exercises to help users learn the stress management skill called diaphragmatic breathing.Breathing exercises have been documented to decrease the body’s ‘fight-or-flight’ (stress) response, and help with mood stabilization, anger control, and anxiety management. Breathe2Relax can be used as a stand-alone stress reduction tool, or can be used in tandem with clinical care directed by a healthcare worker. Breathe2Relax now uses HealthKit and your Apple Watch device to measure your heart rate throughout your breathing exercise to help provide an even more complete picture of the relaxation experienced.

Fabulous way to learn relaxing breathing

This app is very simple but very effective. The 16 cycles are perfectly timed to achieve maximum relaxation. After doing this app for several days I can calm my breathing myself just by visualising the app. It looks like a very simple app which doesn’t do much but it did everything I needed and doesn’t require expensive add ons. Highly recommended.

Longer sessions needed

It would great if there was the option for longer sessions based on minutes. For example 5’ and 10’ session options would be great to have. Otherwise a very good app to use!

The small print.

I have never before, seen an app where you have to agree to the small print!
