The techniques used in Calmingstone have been refined and developed over many years by experts all over the world. Our aim is to develop and grow our understanding of wellbeing so that we can help people all over the world who are affected by anxiety and panic attacks.
Breathing seems second nature to us, however the ability to be aware of your breath and to maintain a calming breathing pattern can be difficult to achieve when you are constantly distracted by your environment. Clinical psychologist Marla W. Deibler states that “deep diaphragmatic breathing is a powerful anxiety-reducing technique because it activates the body's relaxation response”. Using the Calmingstone encourages you to take the time to stop and focus on long, slow, deep breaths to help your body go from tense and anxious to calm and relaxed.
The science behind meditation
Meditation has been shown to help people relieve stress, improve focus and achieve better sleep. This is because by practising meditation you stimulate the area of the brain that processes emotion, allowing the brain to train and regulate your emotional responses. Studies have shown that meditation has a beneficial impact on depression, stress, anxiety and wellbeing. Recent studies have also discovered that after 8 weeks of practising meditation your brain physically adapts to a calmer way of thinking, allowing you to feel relaxed even when not actively meditating.
Symptoms of anxiety and panic attacks
Anxiety can be identified by feelings of tension, worried thoughts, increased blood pressure, sweating, trembling, dizziness or a rapid heartbeat. Panic attacks show similar symptoms but more intense, this is because the body’s alarm system is triggered to activate the fight or flight response. This response can be very helpful in a dangerous situation because it gives you the power to attack with all your strength, or run faster than ever before. However, sometimes this response is triggered unnecessarily when you're at work or before an exam. In these safe environments, we need to remind the body that this response is not needed. By sitting comfortably and focusing on slowing your breathing, you can quickly switch your body from the fight or flight response to the relaxation response, allowing you to continue your day in calm confidence.
The relaxation response is a state of deep relaxation which engages the parasympathetic nervous system. This encourages your body to release the chemicals and brain signals that allow your muscles and organs to relax, increasing blood flow to the brain and making you feel calm. The Calmingstone uses methods that trigger this response to directly counteract the feelings you experience during a panic attack or anxiety.
