“It delivers a wellness-centered experience for healing and mindfulness, and by combining OPUS’ technology with an elevated form factor that is accessible for daily use, we are increasing the ease with which anyone can tap into holistic wellness and healing at home,” said designer Yves Behar.
There is an “offline” mode that limits the Bluetooth/wifi connection for users concerned about EMF.
We could not track any clinical studies tied to the benefits of this device, but there are adequate studies out there that show the health benefits of sound and vibration-based healing.
Psychoacoustics is the scientific study of the perception of sound, and it has fueled researchers’ paths to understand better how it can be used as medicine.
A study published in the Journal of Evidence-Based Integrative Medicine found that an hour-long sound meditation helped people reduce tension, fatigue, anxiety, and depression while increasing a sense of spiritual well-being.
Another great piece of research worth reading about the benefits of sounds is the “neurochemistry of music” if you are interested in learning more.
The OPUS SoundBed™ currently retails at $1999 or about $50/month with a refundable reserve of $199 for those that reserve their device ahead of time.
