Relaxation and sleep are mainly steered by our parasympathetic nervous system (PNS). The good news is we can train PNS to become stronger and more agile, just like a muscle.
Our science team developed Oxa as your personal trainer for your PNS’. It combines the proper exercise (resonance breathing) and immediate feedback of your vital signs (live biofeedback) to help you fine-tune the practice for maximum efficiency - in real-time.
When you hit the resonance frequency of your heart rate and blood pressure control systems, the activity of the parasympathetic system increases. That overflows your body with calm and, in time, strengthens your PNS 'muscle.'
Resonance breathing has been heavily researched over the last few years and used worldwide in psychology, sports, and cardiology. Studies proved that it positively affects stress relief and sleep quality.
But here's the catch – everyone breathes in their own unique way, so generic instructions or videos won't lead you to resonance. To achieve the ideal frequency, you need to align your heart and breathing rates.
And with Oxa you can. The world's first breathing wearable that captures your breath and heart activity and gives instant feedback on your state of resonance.
