Flowy is a uniquely designed game controlled by your breath. It uses the science of breathing to calm you down! In trials Flowy produced measurable decreases in anxiety and panic symptoms. After 90 seconds of play, you will feel relaxed and more centred, ready to take on the trials and tribulations of everyday life.

“Since first using Flowy I have been feeling a lot better...I am a lot happier having this game with me, it sometimes feels like a secret weapon!”

Remember - The UK National Health Service(NHS) recommends regulated breathing 3-4 times per day for 2-3 minutes each!

We take evidence seriously!

We completed our first unblinded, web-based, parallel-group randomized controlled pilot trial with 63 participants in collaboration with the Wolfson Institute of Preventive Medicine in August 2014, where we compared an intervention group playing Flowy with a waitlist control group.

After a 4-week period of use, Flowy produced measurable decreases in anxiety, panic and hyperventilation symptoms, and significantly increased quality of life.

Flowy engaged its users throughout the trial duration, with 84% of participants who were given access to Flowy proactively using it. Flowy was accepted as an intervention by study participants, who found the game to be useful, easy to use, easy to learn, and recommendable to friends.

Quotes from users:

“I want to thank you for what you and the Flowy team are doing. The game has helped me on more than one occasion to prevent a big panic attack.”
“Thank you for letting me be involved in this. I think it's such an amazing idea and there is nothing else like this around. I feel like panic attacks are swept under the rug; it feels amazing that someone is finally addressing it. Once the app is ready, I will be promoting it to everyone I know who has anxiety!!!”

“I just wanted to stress how important I think the application (and moreover the approach) could be in helping people like myself deal with anxiety. For me - it’s changed my life completely - and I know this is a story you must hear over and over again.”

“Breathing techniques have been really helpful to me as a coping mechanism in general; I particularly like so-called 7-11 breathing. However, I found that after a while, my brain was still able to dwell or obsess over a negative thought even while I was concentrating on my breathing. Flowy helps with that because it engages me more fully, making it harder for me to dwell on negative thoughts.”

“I of course can't whip out my phone and start playing a game every time I am faced with a difficult situation. However, Flowy has helped me to learn how to control my breathing and make myself more relaxed. This was a skill I could then employ just sitting at my desk. When a difficult situations arose I learnt to slow down and moderate my reaction to negative stimuli.”

Wonderful app

As a long term sufferer of anxiety and panic attacks, I am always interested to try new techniques for managing the problem. Flowy did not disappoint! It is absolutely fantastic at helping me slow down my breathing during an anxious moment and bringing the panic under control. Just having something to focus on and monitoring your breathing is enough to distract from the onset of a panic attack. I am yet to test this app long term but so far it has been brilliant. Can't rate it high enough, thank you Flowy team!

Lots of content removed

The latest update seems to have lost all the previous game modes and replaced them with only practice or endless. Being able to play a level to completion manages my anxiety more effectively than endless so this is quite disappointing. The game is still a useful tool but less so than it was. It's a shame to have reduced the content.

Crashed

I was very hopeful after reading an article about this game and was looking forward to playing unfortunately it takes ages to open and then crashes after a few moments. I hope you can fix this problem then I'll give it another go.
