The power of sound - how it works

Our audio engineers use pitch and rhythm, the building blocks of music, to design a therapeutic program that works like a mental massage given through sound.

All of our sounds are designed with a particular purpose and patterns (chords and melodic progressions, note length, particular tunings) to bring sensations of serenity in the body and mind. Our app allows listeners to mix and layer this content to create the personalized soundscapes that work best for them and their specific needs and tastes.

The human body is hardwired to respond to music and adapt to its rhythm. Like instruments, the body and mind literally become tuned to music's frequencies. These frequencies equalize the body, allowing us to create the space needed to relax and release tension. It’s when we feel safe and relaxed that we are able to “surrender” and enter a deep state of quality sleep.

Why do people need help falling asleep?

According to a 2016 report by the CDC, ​1 in 3 Americans do not get enough sleep​.

Rapid, intense changes in technology and the way we live has greatly affected how people handle stress and how they sleep. A lack of sleep comes with many problems including weight gain, added stress on relationships, and can even decrease life expectancy.

Many people are stuck in a feedback loop known as the Sleep-Stress Cycle. People aren’t sleeping well enough (both in length + quality) because of stress, and they are

reporting more stress due to a lack of sleep.

We break the cycle through sleep sounds and guided spoken word content. This content has been designed specifically to induce sensations of profound relaxation that trigger a deeper, longer sleep.
