Relaxing is as simple as putting on your sunglasses.
The RelaxEase™ relaxation glasses use a bio-feedback mechanism to induce relaxation. This scientifically based "Brain Wave Synchronization" (BWS) is produced using flashes of red light based on a principle called "the flicker phenomenon". As the flickering/rhythmic flashing begins, the mind focuses on the lights. This causes a biological response that results in a state of relaxation, a feeling similar to the way you may feel when gazing into a fire.
Brain Wave Synchronization was developed by medical professionals and scientists. It has been documented to successfully help with chronic pain and other ailments.
Along with the RelaxEase visual relaxation glasses, you will receive access to the RelaxEase audio app. The app makes it convenient to listen to calming, meditative sounds developed specifically for use with the RelaxEase system.
The light and sound revolution: Around 200 AD, Ptolemy noted that when he placed a spinning, spoked wheel between an observer and the sun, the flickering of the sunlight through the spokes caused patterns and colors to appear before the eyes of the observer, and this could produce a feeling of contentment. At the turn of the century, the French psychiatrist, Pierre Janet, noticed that when patients at the Salpetriere Hospital in Paris were exposed to flickering light, they experienced reductions in hysteria and increases in relaxation.
In more recent times, scientists who were researching the effect of rhythmic light and sound on the brain discovered that electrical rhythms of the brain tended to mimic the rhythm of a flashing light stylus. British neuroscientist W. Grey Walter used an electronic strobe and advanced EEG equipment to investigate what he called the “flicker phenomenon”. He found that rhythmic flashing light quickly altered brain wave activity, producing profound relaxation and vivid mental imagery. Today, this principle is sometimes referred to as “entrainment.”
RelaxEase follows the same natural principles used by Ptolemy & Walter to create an effective brain entrainment device. The power and technology is contained within the glasses, no wires or attachments are required. Take them to work for an afternoon escape, on a business trip, vacation, or anywhere you need to take time to recharge or find tranquility. Enter the deep, calming feeling found in the Alpha and Theta brainwave states in minutes.
Built-in brightness and frequency control (3-12Hz) enables you to adjust system to fit your sensitivity and comfort level. The timer can be set to 15, 30, or 60 minutes. Uses four AAA batteries (not included).
Two relaxation audio soundtracks, specifically developed for use with the RelaxEase system, included. Download instructions will be sent after purchase confirmation.
