What people are saying...LEGACY
"I've just used the Sensate for the 1st time and had to quickly pop you an email to say, it is absolutely fantastic ! Remarkable ! . The bone conduction, sound technology effect goes right into the WOW category on its effect on relaxation. The Bioself team have created something very special here." Chris Walton MSc, Performance Psychologist"
"I have been using the Sensate since May. It has changed my life. Never slept better, tinnitus way down. Feeling more calm during the day as well. So very happy." Jón Einarsson, London
“Starting my day with Sensate – the best meditation helper IMHO” Tim Gray, founder of Health Optimisation Summit
“I had to write to you. I downloaded the app and tried Sensate for the first time. I was in tears because I've never felt anything like it. I've tried many relaxation apps, music and techniques, and none of them really make much difference to me since I'm so tense and somehow and my mind wanders. But with sensate the experience was wholly different. I can't even begin to describe how it immediately relaxed me and kept me involved in it. It is almost like a personal coach that gently keeps me away from the distractions that otherwise so easily draws my attention and ruins any attempt to relax."
Ruut Solo, Finland
’I’m using sensate about 3-4 times a week now and I rave about it to anyone telling me they have stress or anxiety. I can manage so much better than last year. You gave me my life back! Thank you.” Sabah Yaqoob, Birmingham
"I have found that it does amazing things for me when I meditate. I'm a lot more focused, I'm very very relaxed and that in turn gives me a lot more creativity during my day. My sleep is a lot better and my hayfever symptoms reduced a lot!." Lance Wantenaar, Journalist
“I just wanted to let you know that the response to the Sensate from my patients and friends have all been incredibly positive. It’s been a great tool both in the clinic and out.” Melinda Choy, Clinical Director Elevate Wellness, California
“Sensate has now become part of my morning and evening to start and end my day. Using near-infrasonic sound to soothe you and tone the vagus nerve, you are immersed in the accompanying neuro-acoustic soundscape using 3D Sounds. The first time using @mysensate it reminded me of listening to binaural beats but x100. It’s truly incredible.
This device is the first of its kind to integrate 2 proven medical solutions in one product. Vagus Nerve Stimulation to stimulate the nervous system using sound; audio-based Brainwave Synchronisation to guide brain activity – both techniques support stress”. Roger Snipes @rogersnipes, leading Body & Mind Optimisation coach
“So very good news. Really deep sleep, no sleeping problems. Headache is gone and breathing seems to be deeper. It is much stronger than I had imagined, if I had taken strong mediation then I would have expected something strong, but not this strong.”
"Fantastic device, meditation on steroids or should that be opioids. An instant escape."
"I am thoroughly enjoying my sensate delivered last month.... makes me smile, awesome device!!"
“Already becoming something I look forward to doing… “
“It’s quite staggering actually how much better I feel after a single session. 70-80% improved on my symptoms, and more mental energy as well!”
““The first time I used Sensate I was asleep before I knew it, which is a big deal for me!”
“Sensate is brilliant. I feel a tangible difference"
"So far, the Avian track, on each of the 3 times I’ve used it, resulted in HRV readings of 150, 164, and 183. That is compared to my normal 15-35. Stunning."
“The session was GREAT by the end I was ready to fall asleep! "
"I've sent you two charts. The first shows my Apple Watch HRV, day-by-day for March (ave 77 ms*). The second is for February, including the last few days when I first received and started using my Sensate (ave 31 ms). I am certain that you’ll agree … the difference is quite impressive. Likewise the trend seems clear." * a higher number indicates an improved HRV
“Already I don’t want to be without it!”
"Its fantastic. I found it really relaxing and I’m sure I will become addicted to it.”
“Using my Garmin chest strap, I have measured my heart rate reduce from my usual 80 BPM to as low as 58 BPM after using Sensate. The biggest change was 123 down to 62!”
“Although things felt nice afterwards, I really noticed a huge shift when I was walking home that then stayed with me for most of the day.”
“Wow, what can I say, I think I’ll start with, I’ve invited a stream of friends and family pop over and sample the benefits of your Sensate. The results speak for themselves, “Where did you get THIS?”, “How much is it?”, “How do I get one?”, “Can I come back tomorrow?”, “I’ve never been in such a deep state of meditation so quickly”, to name just a few.”
“It’s beautifully packaged and presented by the way. Yesterday had a full session and really enjoyed it… The world needs Sensate!”
“Wow! Yours must me the best customer service I have ever experienced.”
“I already love my Sensate! I noticed that I am already sleeping better since I started using it.”
“Finally arrived this week and boy this is some amazing gadget. Stefan Chmelik and his team have really gone all out with this. A combo of vibrating pebble that stimulates vagal tone and music to change brain wave patterns. Meditation is a breeze and so much deeper than before. Love it! ❤”
“Received my sensate device last week, and I must say that I am impressed with it. I have been following a practice of autogenic meditation over the last 6 months with daily practice, which I have found to be helpful. The sensate device mirrored this pretty closely, and the good vibes were there from the start.”
“Well it was certainly worth the wait! My first session, using the ‘Forest’ track, I was completely gone and only ‘came to’ when the ten minutes were up and it all stopped....”
“Oh it's amazing. I'm so excited about it.”
“I was feeling quite unwell, apprehensive and stressed beforehand. The Sensate made me feel instantly relaxed, especially with the calming music, the aroma of the oils of the seeded pillow and the gentle vibration from the Sensate itself. I now feel re-energised and much better in myself. Session one done, I cannot wait until session two. A big thank you!”
“Loving what see so far- easier sleep eg my son usually takes over an hour to quieten mind and sleep and this is immediate once programme finishes. Thanks so much.”
“I just tried Sensate today and it was amazing! A wonderful sensation”.
“I’m loving my Sensate!! One session never feels enough as I love the feeling so much.”
“The Sensate has arrived and my husband has tried it out and thinks it is wonderful! If I wanted to order another one for someone else, what would the delivery time be?”
"The sensate is working well and the upload went without any issues. Jo my wife and I both love it and appreciate the gift it brings.”
“I’m really enjoying using my Sensate. Congrats on a fantastic product, I’m excited to be a part of the journey!
“I am a Child Psychotherapist and bought the Sensate for a 17 year old girl with whom I’ve been working for two years. She witnessed a lot of domestic violence as a young child and experiences significant stress and underlying anxiety. She is naturally sceptical and suspicious and so has a predisposition that “things” won’t work but she has tried the sensate and is “amazed” that it has been able to calm her and help her fall asleep (which was a major obstacle for her). Many thanks and especially for producing something which, it seems, has the potential for increasing vagal tone.”
"LOVE THE PEBBLE…..using it pretty much every day….it’s a one way ticket to mellowness!"
“I used my Sensate yesterday on the airplane back from Ireland when experiencing turbulence (I am a very anxious flyer) and it had a fantastic effect. I went from anxious to calm after 10 minutes.”
"I’m absolutely loving my Sensate.....thank you! Can I get another one?"
“My Fitbit monitor read that my deep sleep portion was much longer than usual. Reading last 2 nights deep sleep analysis on the sensate has been nearly 2 hrs each night in the deep ....My average deep is around and hour in the past.”
"I love my sensate. Having a hectic work / family balance means I know the sensate is there for me to sneak moments of mindful meditation and leave the chaos behind me for 10 minutes without necessarily having to 'find time' for it."
“Sensate is great, I have to admit the flight was actually much easier to handle as flying is usually very stressful for me.”
“It arrived just in time. I used it before my event, and did feel very calm! A very positive first go! I feel very excited about the potential of this and really look forward to continuing to explore it’s effect!"
“I had to give mine to my Mum who has had terrible anxiety. It has really helped her when nothing else has. It has even brought her heart rate down. It really has been a god send as I was beginning to despair on how we could help her.”
“Benefiting very much from Sensate.”
“I have been doing 1 session a day, sometimes more, since receiving my pebble. Amazingly I felt calmer from day 1. Since then, my sleep has improved greatly as I can now usually get back to sleep when I wake in the night (which is most nights) instead of lying awake for hours stressing. On the odd occasion when I don’t get back to sleep I plug myself in to Be Sensate and either I fall asleep soon after or feel calm about being awake."
"I have now lost the longstanding and perpetual undercurrent of anxiety which accompanied me into retirement from my career as a solicitor and which was so habitual I had essentially stopped noticing it. Instead I feel pretty chilled most of the time. These are life enhancing changes - as I tell all my friends. Thank you so much!”
“I am very impressed by the product and have experienced a noticeable difference in my response to the little stresses of daily life.”
“Just to let you know that my Sensate arrived safe and well, and have had a brief try out of it.....awesome. Have to say, also that the packaging used was very good - appreciated the care and attention for that.”
“The experience of using Sensate this week has been better than I had even hoped for."
"Have not slept as well for very many years and feel relaxed during the day. Surprisingly, I get sleepy and tired at night and feel a need to go to sleep, something I have not felt for very many years. I use Sensate two times ten minutes and then another ten minutes during the evening.”
“I have been using the pebble everyday since I received it, sometimes 2/3 a day and I wouldn't be without it.”
“My Sensate arrived today (lovely packaging btw), and I’m so happy to say it’s wonderful! Worth the wait and wanting to spread the word. I am a therapist working mostly with teens and young adults with anxiety, depression and autism. My patients would love this product. Do you plan to have distributors here in the states? Direct sales, etc. Can I order a bunch for my patients?”
"I bought it as a gift for my husband who has anxiety/depression. It is amazing!! It has made such a huge difference already, so much so that we are going to buy a second one just in case anything happens to this one "
“Sensate is quite simply the best wearable for stress reduction that I have tried to date. (I have also tried the Doppel, Muse, and TouchPoints.) I have also tried the Bose Sleepbuds. I was diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease at age 43. A common symptom of Parkinson’s Disease is anxiety and I have done an exceptionally poor job at handling this particular symptom; at times, I can literally feel anxiety and tension pulsating through my body. On two occasions since I received the Sensate I have had instances in which I was overwhelmed by anxiety. Both times I used the Sensate for 10 or 20 minutes and it had a profound effect in calming me. It was quite amazing. Meditating on my own, which I have struggled to do for years, is literally a hopeless endeavor for me. Meditation with the Muse headband was a bit better, although I invariably was itching to check how much time was left. I have been amazed that with the Sensate, I almost never to check to see how much time is left and, in fact, the session often runs out before I feel “ready to quit relaxing” and I will often do another session. For someone who has long struggled to meditate, this is an extraordinary outcome!
Here’s the other thing: it actually works. Some of the other stress reduction devices I have tried have been incredibly buggy and virtually impossible to get to work properly. (And these complications are happening at a time when you are already feeling stress and anxiety). The Sensate works perfectly - every single time. Congratulations on a producing such a superior, market leading product!"
“I have mostly been really enjoying my Sensate, and impressed at what it can do.”
“I have tried Muse, Headspace and Calm. Sensate is better.”
“Thank you for starting a Magical device. Please continue to progress. Thank you.”
“Sadly my sister has severe ME and no treatment thus far has worked. I lent her my Sensate and she said it was like receiving a hug and a massage at the same time - for someone who can’t handle physical touch most of the time due to her illness I was delighted to be able to get her something than can bring some pleasant physical experience."
“From my perspective I am also going through a difficult emotional time and though I am a psychotherapist and have lots of resources to relax, I find the sensate is the quickest and most effective way to relieve anxiety for me and often reach for it when I am going to sleep. Because of this my feedback from the pebble about how I’m feeling before and after is not accurate as I fall asleep before I can do the after!”
"Wow. Amazing. Strangely enough my hay fever suddenly averted and my nose suddenly dried up. Can only presume Sensate is also calming the immune system too?!? I’m particularly fascinated by this device!"
“Sensate is wonderful! Slept so well after using it!"
“Me and the wife are using Sensate all the time. There have been times when it has stopped my Atrial Fibrilations and this has reduced as well overall."
“So pleased to have it back really missed it and it does wonders for me!”
“I am much enjoying my Sensate and definitely think it is helping with the anxiety."
“Like mindfulness, you have a product that could well change the world."
“As a busy Lawyer, anything that claims to reduce stress was worth a try and I have to say that Sensate does what it says and more. Each time I have used the device for a session I have been impressed with the very relaxing and calming effect upon my stress levels. The device vibrates in time with the tracks and you can alter the strength of the vibrations. I have occasional heart fibrilations and the Sensate brought me out of an episode combined with some deep breathing meditation. As far I am concerned it is an essential purchase for regular management of stress. Every time I have used it I have felt better than when I started the session."
“My relaxation coach used this today in our session on me how amazing I am in toronto Canada how long will it take to receive one can I pay to have it expedited to me ? Please let me know thank you.”
“The Sensate is weird and wonderful! I definitely feel calmer. I have had some wonderful times when I have felt a sudden urge of "I feel so happy" . "I am so lucky" or similar. I also need to observe the more quiet or soulful moments."
"I have just started using the Sensate Pebble today & so far so good! Very easy (to my relief) to set up using my phone & the App. I have used one track so far & really enjoyed the amazing sensation from the vibrations combined with the very hypnotic music. It's very effective & I hope this continues to expand more as I use it."
"I received my repaired Sensate back on Monday - back to sleeping through the night again, blissful."
“I got home to my Sensate last night - thank you so much. I used it last night and got to sleep so quickly which is amazing for me having suffered with quite intense anxiety/panic for a while now.”
“Just received my Sensate. Clearly a remarkable device. Very significant positive effects on first use. Setting it up was quite straightforward.”
“I just wanted to start out by saying that I absolutely love my sensate and have been using it every day since it arrived.”
“I absolutely love your product and think what you're doing by having a product to help the vagus nerve is fantastic.”
“My daughter has been using the Sensate and finding it really beneficial at reducing stress.”
“I experienced immediate positive response once I began to use the thing, and the longer term results from - so far - 2 months of daily use have made an appreciable difference to my `base stress level`. I notice a decreased response to the little annoyances of daily life.”
