Genesis

We live in a world that is flooded with stimuli. In addition to the everyday routine, intense situations in the world of work and sometimes private stress, our mind is often in a kind of hyperactive state, followed by a state of powerlessness and lack of motivation. We lose energy and direction.

This was the starting point for the inventor and visionary Roland Bachstein – to develop a mental training and relaxation system that can rekindle mental forces through natural monotonous stimulation of brain activities, restoring the ability to let go and rejoin the rhythm of life.

 

From an early age, the inventor was interested in induction techniques and rituals of ancient cultures and religions and learned a natural law that underlies all relaxation techniques. The principle of natural monotonous stimulation – a monotonous rhythm of tension and release at specific intensities, intervals and speed changes – has a calming and decelerating effect on brain activity.

 

In 2009, the idea of lounge8 came about after a series of self-observations by the inventor during numerous train journeys. The gentle rhythmic rocking of the railway carriage and the regular, familiar and monotonously repeating sleeper noise during the ride always put him in a deep, trance-like state of relaxation. In such a meditative daydreaming state, the idea arose to develop a lounger which makes this state of relaxation accessible to everyone by means of an especially calming, even vibration function and a unique experience.

From Gamma to Delta

Brain activities control stress and relaxation
Based on the principle of natural monotonous stimulation, the lounge8 vibrating lounger is used to calm down brain activities through a certain rhythm and intensity of vibration, for example during meditation or hypnosis. lounge8 stimulates brain activities around the 8-hertz range (alpha and theta phase) with a specially developed frequency of vibration and thus promotes physical and mental deceleration in a playful way. Through regular use of lounge8 our brain "learns" to mentally control relaxation processes and thus to enter phases of deep relaxation.
