What are ZENBands and How do I Plug Them In?
ZENBands are wellness headbands with removable custom-made pillow speakers that feel like cushions for your ears. It is made wide, so you can keep your hair out of your face & pull it over your eyes like an eye-mask to keep people from disturbing you and to keep out ambient light. ( Blocking out surrounding stimuli and light significantly enhances your relaxation response.)
Unlike regular headphones, the ZENBand has cushion-like speakers that put no pressure on your head or ears. They are superb for meditating, traveling, hypnosis, hypnobirthing or resting on your side. The speakers also do not go inside your ears, thereby reducing the risk of bacteria being transmitted to your ears. The ZENBand was designed by Erin Stair, MD, MPH.
The ZENBands plug into your phone. They use the standard 3.5 mm jack. If you don’t have one, that’s okay. They easily work with all Lightening to 3.5 mm adapters, like this one , that come with your phone or are easily ordered from Amazon. These adapters also allow you to listen and charge your phone at the same time.
Why No Bluetooth? Because of significant growing health concerns.
I get asked this a lot, because of the seemingly “wireless” craze. As a doctor, I don’t feel comfortable making it and I would never use it. It’s important to remember that tech companies are not required to prove long-term safety of any device, so we have to rely on independent studies that start out as randomized controlled trials in animals. The results of those trials, along with epidemiological data, suggest that Bluetooth and all EMF emitting devices have the potential to cause great harm to one’s health when so close to one’s body. Bluetooth is an EMF ( Electro-Magnetic Frequency) radiation emitting device that sits inside your ear, directly near your brain. We don’t make Bluetooth because of growing health concerns linked to EMF exposure, such as brain, ear and heart tumors ( gliomas and schwannomas), infertility issues, cognitive dysfunction and neurological dysfunction, especially in young people and if exposed in utero during pregnancy. It does not happen overnight, as with any exposure, but it definitely can. Folks who sleep or travel with Bluetooth devices for very long durations are putting themselves at even greater risk. All of the evidence shows that the closer an EMF- emitting device is to one’s body/head, the more exposure and therefore the potential for deleterious health effects. The amount of exposure decreases the square of the distance the device is from your body. (So moving it away even tiny distances can help a lot.) Also…, folks often wear the ZENBands on trips, while receiving treatments, during procedures, during birth, etc., and Bluetooth has been known to die or isn’t reliable. For references to research and links to health experts on wireless, Bluetooth and health issues, please read Dr. Stair’s article here: Why I won’t make a Bluetooth ZENBand.
Want to really Zen Out?
If you are using the ZENBand for meditation, hypnosis, our ZENTone programs or basic relaxation, we highly recommend taking a “minimalist” approach and using it with an Mp3 player like this one to turn off your “urge” to check/look at your phone and to shut out distracting Apps, phone calls, email, social media, and really focus on your practice. For mindful practices that involve you being in water (float tanks, salt baths or birthing pools) , ditch your phone and get a water proof Mp3 player. We have a feeling you’ll feel significantly less anxious, more calm and much more relaxed.
