How Does CalmiGo Work?
You probably have heard of the “Fight Or Flight” response. While it’s the thing that kept our ancestors alive, it can be deadly in other ways.
People with stress disorders are often unable to put the brakes on this process
CalmiGo was specifically designed to gently “train” your brain to turn off that “Fight and Flight” response. When CalmiGo helps you to breathe during stress, the pattern signals your brain that there’s no danger, deactivating your tension and, quite independent of your thoughts, the body returns to a restful state.
When your “Fight or Flight” response is activated,
it’s as if a gas pedal of your body is pushed to the
floor… Over-activating this system and staying in
this “red zone” can really have a negative effect on
your body. Symptoms can include:
- Heart Rate Increase
- Breathing becomes shallow
- Adrenaline pumps through the body
- Muscles tense (often in the jaw)
- Beads of sweat may appear (often sweaty palms)
Breathing does more than relieve anxiety
Just as incorrect breathing can cause anxiety, stress ad depression, science has shown that “correct breathing” is the way forward. In fact, CalmiGo was part of an academic study, which found the effectiveness was greater than we anticipated! Specifically, the findings revealed that the group using CalmiGo experienced “an increase in the level of psychological well-being”.
What does CalmiGo look like?
Smart Technology to Regulate Breathing
The lights and vibration feedback guide you to effortlessly regulate your breath according to your unique abilities and needs at the moment. As a result, the gases in your blood are balanced (CO2, O2) and the system in your brain that is responsible for relaxation (known as the parasympathetic system) is activated. Thus, you achieve calm after just a few breaths. Visit "The Science Behind CalmiGo" page for more information.
A Scented Element with a Dual Effect
The relaxing scent has 2 purposes:
- It activates parts of your nervous system which induce mind and body relaxation
in just a few seconds
- When you remove the cover, it immediately activates a psychological and physiological response (related to memories and associations), giving you a sense of calm, even before you turn on the device.
Four Senses Stimulation for Maximum Efficacy
Each one of us has a dominant sense. For some of us, the visual sense is the strongest. For others, the auditory and olfactory senses tend to dominate. By activating four senses at once, CalmiGo efficiently detaches your senses from a stress/anxiousness state to a calm state. No matter what your dominant sense is, we engage it to bring you back to calm and control!
