State of mind:
The key to a healthy life.

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.

What is resonance breathing?

In a nutshell, resonance breathing is a powerful technique that brings your heart rate and breathing in resonance (hence the name).  

When you get stressed, they first tell you to take a deep breath and exhale slowly. It works because your heart rate jumps slightly with every inhale to ensure a better oxygen delivery. When you exhale, the heart slows down, and the nerves relax.  

breathe deeply but the real magic happens when you breathe deeply and slowly, just at the right pace, and that's what resonance breathing is all about.

How does resonance breathing work?

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.

Why do I need instant biofeedback?

Imagine you’re trying to play the piano but there is always a one-minute delay until you hear the sounds. Playing like this would be very difficult – if not impossible. 

In the same way, calming and training your nervous system without instant feedback is very difficult. You need to know how your exercise practice affects your nerves. And you need to know that in the moment, not a few seconds or even minutes later. 

That's why Oxa made sure you get thatbiofeedback in real time. It guides you with soothing sounds reflecting your resonance. So, you'll literary hear how your body calms and your heart rate and  improve with every breath.
