ZENBands, with comfty, inserted pillow speakers can be a great asset for anyone with chronic pain issues who is interested in alternative approaches, such as sound therapy. A recent study published in The Journal of Alternative and Complimentary Medicine tested the effectiveness of binaural acoustics ( some of what we use in our ZENTones) on fibromyalgia. Fibromyalgia comes with a host of symptoms, including pain, depression and anxiety. It’s very difficult to treat, because the cause is unknown and the symptoms are vast.
In this study, the researchers divided 120 patients with fibromyalgia into 4 groups: one group listened to music composed by the famous Bach. A second group received acupuncture. A third group listened to binaural beats and received acupuncture. A fourth group was the control group, and didn’t receive any interventions. At the end of the study, all 3 groups improved compared to the control group. However, the group that listened to binaural acoustics significantly improved the most!
We offer one ZENTone specifically for pain on our website, and of course, the ZENBand optimizes comfort. So far, the reviews have been great for this ZENTone, which was originally designed for headache pain, however, I believe it can help with other chronic pain issues. Again, this ZENTone should be used as a relaxation tool, and should never replace your doctor’s advice or medication you may have been prescribed.
