A Conversation about
the Remarkable AromaChill
for 'round-the-clock relaxation
daytime for stress
nighttime for insomnia
We developed the new AromaChill relaxation
system to help people relax safely and easily during the day and at night.
This relaxation provides a natural sense
of well-being during the day. Relaxation also helps reduce the time
it takes to fall asleep -- whether its during your first attempt to fall
asleep or later, during an upsetting middle-of-the-night wake-up.
AromaChill (patent pending)
is the FIRST OF ITS KIND: a huggable, hand-held, soft-tech,
affordable aid for sleep and stress management.
It is a non-medical solution for individuals
(like you) who like to find self-help solutions to improve their wellness
by managing their daytime stress and optimizing their sleep-time.
you or someone you know have sleep-time challenges?
For millions of people every night, easily
falling asleep or staying asleep throughout the night is a formidable struggle.
When chronic insomnia reduces the time asleep, healthy and restorative
sleep is reduced. The consequence of insomnia is increased physiological
and emotional stress, cognitive decline, and further disordered sleep.
It has been reported that severe, chronic insomnia is experienced by more
than 30 million Americans of all ages and hundreds of millions of people
worldwide. Inadequate duration and quality of sleep are associated
with reduced healthspan, longevity, and well-being during waking hours.
Pharmaceutical interventions are typically
contraindicated for chronic insomnia. Their effectiveness, if any,
is short-lived in that tolerance develops within a few weeks. Sleeping
pills can damage essential, restorative and deep sleep and are too often
accompanied by side effects like hallucinations or frightening sleepwalking
episodes, combined with dangerous daytime drowsiness related to auto accidents,
and especially for elders, falls and fractures. The FDA has taken
the news spotlight, pointing to auto accidents associated with widely prescribed
insomnia drugs. FDA now recommends a drastically reduced dosage.
They also took the opportunity to alert the public that all insomnia medications
carry a risk for next day driving and other alertness impairment.
Many other clinical and self-help intervention
strategies are typically used with varying degrees of success.
Relaxation System (patent pending)
The AromaChill™ relaxation
system helps reduce the time it takes to fall asleep by safely and easily
accessing natural mechanisms of relaxation. In addition, it improves
the maintenance of healthy sleep and creates a daytime sense of well-being.
AromaChill is a huggable,
affordable aid for the self-help wellness market. With our prototypes
and protocols currently undergoing market testing, this relaxation and
sleep-care product, primarily focused on insomnia, is expected to be the
first of its kind.
AromaChill is a focal point
for “mindful breathing” techniques, historically proven to help reduce
sleep latency and increase restorative sleep. It delivers aromatic air
that is conditioned with selected scents, also historically proven to help
AromaChill also slightly
reduces brain temperature in the prefrontal cortex (the brain’s “executive”
department), where there is evidence of beneficial effect from cooling.
serves as an effective
means to instill new habits and lifestyle modifications for better sleep
hygiene. Use of AromaChill is reported to lead to feelings
of empowerment about sleep and relaxation, dispelling popular myths, fear,
and anxiety about both.
We believe AromaChill will
find broad based support among chronic insomniacs in widely varied demographics.
In addition to the growing elder demographic, young to middle age adults
often experience insomnia in connection with daytime stress and difficulty
“turning off” their minds for sleep.
A group of volunteer testers is currently
using AromaChill prototypes. Prior to using AromaChill,
these individuals had reported that they were experiencing ongoing problems
with initial sleep onset or with not falling back to sleep after awakening
during the night. They have since reported personal satisfaction with AromaChill’s
effectiveness. They report that AromaChill helps them
relax and significantly reduces their time to fall asleep, whether at sleep
onset or after nocturnal awakenings.
