What are ZENBands?
ZENBands are boho-styled wellness headbands, eye-masks and removable soft pillow speakers all in one! Designed by Erin Stair, MD, MPH.
Plug into phones, laptops, Mp3 players and functional with all adapters. We don’t make Bluetooth because they aren’t safe, especially in young people and in pregnancy. ( Read below for why.)
ZENBands allow you to rest your head, lie down, zen out on a plane or train, AND listen to your choice of sounds without the discomfort of hard headphones, earbuds or unreliable Bluetooth batteries.
See more photos of ZENBands & wellness tips on our Blooming Wellness Instagram feed.
The ZENBand is elastic material and has no outside labels.
ZENBands ship within the DAY you order!
If in US, you should receive in 2-3 days from ordering.

I want to thank obgyn doc Dr. Brooke Vandermolen ( @theobgynmum ) for her review of the #ZENBand and her description of how it could be used during #pregnancy & in labor. It's always great to get an expert opinion, and I recommend following her for #obgyn tips. 🙂 She's London-based, and though we are US-based and ship internationally, we just signed a deal with Chemist Direct who will be selling #zenbands in the UK AND Stratus Healthcare who will be selling them in Ireland. So now you won't have to wait for ZENBands to cross the ocean! Can't wait, and I'll let you know when they are up and running! We work with a lot of #pregnant women and have had great feedback of how they use the ZENBand as part of their relaxation or #hypnobirthing routine. I can't stress enough that I don't recommend sleeping in the ZENBand. Sleep tech free if you can! This is entirely a #wellness product for hypnosis, #stressrelief , #meditation and short-term relaxation. 💜 . . . . . #hypnobirth #doulas #midwives #london #zenbirth #zenbands #pregnancy #naturalbirth #naturalhealth #naturalanxietyrelief #doula #birth #labor #laboranddelivery #labour #prenatal #antenatal
SIZE: One size fits most (Our new colors are 9 by 3.5 & very easy to pull over your eyes for added relaxation. Older designs on clearance are not as wide. If you feel you have a large(ish) head, write us and we can offer you customized options.)
For FREE SHIPPING, add ZENTones to your order to help with anxiety, sleep, chronic pain & chronic stress. ZENTones are designed by Dr. Stair utilizing the science of binaural frequencies, sound sequencing and isochronic tones. The ZENTones require headphones or a ZENBand to work. When you order these, they come to your email instantly. For more information on the science behind ZENTones, visit our FAQS page.

Bluetooth? No. They aren’t safe.
We get asked a lot, and Dr. Stair has personally reached out to researchers and doctors on this subject ( many who will be featured in her podcast Causes Or Cures) who advised her that the safest way to listen is with wired headphones plugged into your phone, with your phone OFF of your body. Given the latest research that has come out about wireless/ EMF exposure, and the fact that 250 scientists’ sent a petition to the World Health Organization warning about the potential health effects from wireless technology, we feel the best precautionary measure is to refrain from offering wireless at this time. (The WHO is currently re-evaluating cancer/neurological health risk for cell phones/Bluetooth.) Our recommendation is to listen with your phone on Airplane mode. This way you can avoid unnecessary EMF exposure, as well as distracting calls or messages that interfere with meditation, hypnosis and other relaxation practices.

What will a ZENBand do for you?
It’s a great relaxation tool for anyone who likes to nap, meditate, practice hypnosis, chill out at the spa, get treatments, or travel while lying down or resting your head to the side. You can definitely use the ZENBand for sleeping, but if you do, please put your phone in Airplane Mode to avoid EMF exposure during sleep. Unlike conventional headphones, Bluetooth batteries or earbuds, you will feel nothing but softness. 🙂
“The ZENBand speakers feel like cushions for your ears!”
ZENBands are not noise canceling, but the sound quality is great. ( We want you to hear the alarms, dog barking or baby crying. )
As color shapes mood, we consider color therapy in our design, so ZENBands come in a variety of colors and unique patterns.
ZENBands are made from soft cotton.
Below is a picture of the pillow speakers that are inserted in each ZENBand. The cord is braided, so it doesn’t tangle. Speakers are removable.
ZENBands are used by individuals all over the world, in wellness centers, spas, airports, hotels, cancer centers, dentist offices, women centers, rehab centers, birth centers, hypnosis centers and more. ZENBands are simple and effective wellness tools that can help you beat anxiety or stress; rest better, relax before treatments, travel more comfortably; listen to guided imageries, tunes or audio-books; fly easier; birth calmer & be in a more ZEN state of mind, all without the pain of earbuds, hard headphones or having Bluetooth directly in your ear. ZENBands are wide and easily pull over your eyes to keep out ambient light and enhance the relaxation response.
How to plug in using your phone?
The ZENBand speakers plug into a 3.5 mm jack. They easily plug into phones, laptops, planes, adapters and MP3 players for the minimalist-wellness guru who wants to minimize distraction from the phone. IF you have a phone that doesn’t have a headphone jack, like an I-phone, but still want to use the ZENBand, they easily plug into very affordable lightning adapters, such as these.
Can I wash the ZENBand?
Yes. Please wash them in cold water. You can remove the speakers through the back slit by gently squeezing the edges of the speakers together and pulling them out.

Do I need to use a ZENBand for the ZENTones?
No, you do not. You must use headphones for the binaural effect, though. As long as you use any headphones, the programs should work.
