“Simple and amazingly effective for better concentration, stress anxiety, ADHD and trauma healing” – Kees L. Blase, medical physicist, National Centre for Stress Management,The Netherlands.

Respiroguide PRO 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 which induces heart and breath coherence.
Respiroguide Pro will train the reflexes and so the elasticity of your vascular system. This will help in lowering blood pressure, is effective in coping with stress and anxiety, and enhances better concentration at school and work.
Heart rate is a dynamic body function that varies in each moment.
In an Active state (sympathic activity) heart rate increases,
in a Calm and relaxed state heart rate decreases.
Cardiac Coherence is the Balanced state of the autonomic nervous system in which you feel safe and happy, free from fear and anxiety and overstressed reactions.
The body can be brought into the state of Cardiac Coherence through guided breathing. Guiding the resonance frequency (Respiroguide Pro) can be compared with guiding someone on a swing by pushing at just the right moment to optimise their swing.
Each individual has his or her own personal respiratory frequency (resonance frequency) in which cardiac coherence is optimal. This ideal respiratory frequency is between 0,06 Hz and 0,12 Hz. The Respiroguide Pro will help you to find your personal resonance frequency, which depends on the length and width of your blood vessels.
You can set the guide in four different frequencies:
1. Average: F6: 6 breaths a minute = 0,1 Hz
2. Average: F5: 5 breaths a minute = 0,083 Hz
3. Slow: F4: 4 breaths a minute = 0,066 Hz
4. Quick: F7: 7 breaths a minute = 0,118 Hz
To find your resonance frequency it’s important to experience all four breathing frequencies and notice:
-which one provides the most balanced feeling
-which one can be comfortably sustained for a period of at least 5 minutes
-which one gives a maximum amplitude in Heart Rate Variability. This last function requires access to a HRV-biofeedback instrument with a Cardiac Coherence Coach.
Cardiac Coherence Coaches can be found at (Netherlands) and (Europe, Asea).
The Respiroguide Pro is a medical tested safe device. More than 20 years of research showed positive effects:lowering bloodpressure, less anxiety, enhancing performance, coping with stress, effective treatment of trauma.Take care: do not inhale too deeply, this occasionally make you dizzy. Focusing on the exhale is the most effective way.

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.
You can gradually increase the exercise lengths, but remember to exercise three times every day. Over one week of exercising you will notice the effects in your body.

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

Other 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!

    cool idea, crashes 9 out of 10 times I open it.

    I used this and found it to be good for the price. However after having to reset my phone it will not reinstall again. Running Android 2.2

    Doesn't try to do too much and succeeds in giving a good visual for slowing breathing. Runs glitch-free on my Android. However, I would like to see more range in speeds to choose from because I want to start at the higher rates and work my way down. Recommended.

    Most resp guides are way too complicated. This one's just what I needed and nothing I didn't. Absolutely perfect.

    It's quite a pretty app, and the colours are appealing, as is the gentle wave movement of the circle you're meant to follow with your breath. Unfortunately, it doesn't work very well. It tells you that it's better to exhale for longer than you inhale, and then gives you the option to do only the opposite, to increase how long you inhale for with respect to how long you exhale for! And then that
