Massage goggles are priced at £175 with a promised tagline to improve your well-being. But can they do the job?
If you have visited a spar before, you can picture how you will feel after a good massage targeting those sore spots. A trained masseuse will leave your body feeling rejuvenated and refreshed and your mind soothed. With expert fingers and thumbs working their magic, any session will be worth your money.
But try to see this in your mind; a gentle massage to your eyes, warm and pulsating vibrations that will circulate between your forehead and eye sockets without the touch of anyone’s hands. This is the new technology of eyewear claiming to have these effects and will apparently soothe your mind, and lessen build-up pressure while listening to your heart.
Sleeping technologies are not entirely new, but not all offer the results that many customers are looking for. Is the new massage goggle any better?
The new massage goggles from Therabody have been created with outstanding settings for different purposes – sleep, loosen up, attention, and all these settings can be synched with a selection of soundtracks from complementary applications.
The SmartGoggles are versatile with the potential of enhancing mental attention, assisting in pain reduction, and increasing or improving sleep patterns in users. Using heat and vibrations for different modes, the technology has been craftily designed to work on the mind and body.
These SmartGoggles are going on sale today and are from Therabody a company based in Los Angeles that surprisingly has big names on its list of investors such as Daniel Craig the actor and Jay-Z the rapper.
They are a wellness technology intended to reduce facial tension at different times during the day but will also help you sleep better at night by relaxing and soothing your mind. According to Therabody’s CEO Benjamin Nazarian, SmartGoggles are a new direction that the company is taking because they “believe that wellness should be accessible to everybody with innovative, personalized products that are backed by science.”
How it works
Equipped with SmartSense, Therabody’s SmartGoggles will optimize your experience using biometric data gathered from you. Your nervous system, mood, and focus are bound to get affected if you use this gadget whether at night or during the day.
When you reach the Relax mode, the Smartsense will work on slowing your heart rate and according to the manufacturers, this will eventually reduce your stress and anxiety. You can also keep track of your data and results by using the Therabody app.
With sleep disorders and stress, it’s easy to lose a good night’s sleep, but we all know that with the right amount of comfortable sleep, you can easily face the day. Sleep does, after all, affect your attitude, your outlook on the world, your health, recovery from illness be it physical or mental plus your performance in daily tasks.
If you had a way to improve your sleep pattern and get the best relaxation every night would you not grasp it with both hands? The new addition of wellness technology in Therabody’s basket just does that. The sleep mode comes with medium vibrations and soothing massage of the temples.
They are also safe enough to keep on as you start to sleep because they are built to turn off 15 minutes after you turn on the sleep mode. Those that have tried the SmartGoggle believe this sleeping tech is the right technology with easy-to-use settings and is worth the money.
Therabody is confident in SmartGoggles’ ability to improve not only daily performance but also its ability to offer pain management and mental and physical care.
The massage goggles come with a fast charging USB-C cable, and a soft case, are portable, soft to touch, and light weighing less than 1lb. This means you can take your SmartGoggle with you as you travel or are looking forward to a power nap at the office.
When worn, the SmartGoggle gently squeezes the eye area until you start feeling relaxed. With different settings available, you can decide to start with pressure points around your eyes or the area between your eyebrows to get your desired results. The extra heat and vibration options have been made to meet the needs and preferences of different users. You can also listen to audio content to relax or enhance your performance every time you use the SmartGoggle.
While some may feel that they haven’t started sleeping better with Therabody’s massage goggles, many who have tried it agree on waking up feeling more relaxed and refreshed. The product stands out when compared to other sleep technologies in the industry because it seamlessly falls into people’s routines with its uncomplicated design and excellent features.
