“The most effective stress relief tool on the market” – dr. David O’Hare, Montreal- Canada

“Simple and amazingly effective” – Kees L. Blase, medical physicist, National Centre for Stress Management - The Netherlands

Respiroguide is brought to you by Vital-EQ the International Institute for Stress Management.

Respiroguide uses the most recent research in neurosciences and stress management, research that has been condensed into the most convenient one-touch tool. The knowledge is based on the heart's resonant frequency of 0,1Hz, which induces heart and breath coherence.

QUICK START: press the play button and just breathe in and out with the yellow dot. Breathe in as the dot goes up, breathe out as it goes down.

The default setting is a 3 minute long exercise. This is what it takes to lower your level of stress. Research has shown that slow breathing at the frequency of 4-7 breaths a minute will decrease the level of cortisol, the stress hormone.
Respiroguide has been built as simple as possible for the average rhythm of 6 breaths a minute (=0,1Hz).If you want to find exactly your personal best frequency you can choose RESPIROGUIDE PRO,the renewed version of Respiroguide.Here you find rhythms of 4,5,6 and 7 times a minute and a guide to find your personal frequency.
It takes practicing regularly, three to four times a day, wherever you are, whenever you wish; just breathe at the pace set by the Respiroguide.

If three minutes is the ideal starting set point, gradually increase the exercise lengths, but remember to do this simple exercise about three times every day. Over one week of exercising you will probably notice the effects in your body.

Breathing at the 0,1 Hz frequency (6 per minute) for several minutes three times a day is a very powerful stress management tool inducing alert calmness and modifying the perception of stressful stimuli. Respiroguide usage shows a decrease of test-anxiety,an increase in concentration and a decrease in high blood pressure.

We have wished to keep the tool simple and make it a one-touch tool, always ready as soon as the user can take the short time to synchronize his biological rhythms with the Respiroguide.

There are several software and hardware tools to guide breath and heart synchronization; none of them are as simple as the Respiroguide which is based on the same scientific knowledge.

Probably the best investment you will ever make. If you use it!

Two options:
1. Turn the sea wave sounds on and off (the waves are synchronized to the specific 0,1Hz frequency)
2. Choose the duration of the exercise; remember that the secret to stress relief is practicing several times every day, so make it simple, use the Respiroguide!
