Toning the vagus nerve using powerful and natural methods
Not all sounds are created equal. Sensate’s mix of infrasonic frequencies and sound design send a powerful signal throughout the body.
Sensate taps into the phenomenon of bone conduction. Your chest resonates sound, sending out a frequency that signals the vagus nerve to relax.
These are developed using a proprietary process, mixing engineered frequency harmonics with auditory stimuli and frequency following responses.
With Sensate on your chest, the comforting hum taps into your ancient instincts of safety and relaxation.
