PRESS REVIEWS:

• Harvard Health Newsletter
"This app employs the phone's microphone to assess your breathing, then establishes a realistically reduced "Target Rate." You can choose an audio accompaniment and set the length of your relaxation session. You then breathe in and out in sync with an image that pulsates at a gradually slower pace."

• Time.com Techland
"If you find yourself becoming overagitated calm yourself with Breathing Zone, a handy iPhone app that'll help keep the typical stress of fomenting unrest somewhat in check."

• The Huffington Post
"The soothing visualizer function shows the in-out pattern of the breath with a colorful flower-like figure."

• Lifehacker
"If you're a bit stressed or anxious, it's a good way to help you alleviate those feelings in just a few minutes."

• Jessica Garrett Mills, PhD
Breathing Zone takes the guess work out of meditation. It’s completely devoid of any new-agey-ness that might rub some folks the wrong way. It’s basically just guided breathing.
