The Only Stress Relief App Backed up by Strong Objective Clinical Evidence. Now shown that our course may benefit those with loneliness as well.

Our Evidence Based Mindfulness app is the only meditation course delivered by an app that has been demonstrated in clinical trial to lower blood pressure and cortisol levels: the unhealthy physiological biomarkers of stress. Also, the same mindfulness skills learned from the course was recently shown to reduce feelings of loneliness and social isolation for those studied.

Evidence Based Mindfulness App for Individuals

Due to overwhelming interest from a New York Times article about our app reducing loneliness, we are now going to offer the EBM app to individual users. Individual access is expected to be available before end of March, 2019. The individual plan price is $95 for the app comprising the clinically validated course and one year of ongoing daily practice support.

Evidence Based Mindfulness App for Organizations

Organizations can benefit now from the scientific rigor applied to developing and validating a mindfulness meditation app for stress reduction by offering your organization’s members access to the EBM app for Stress Relief described here at  EBMforStress.com Get started now:

EBM App Clinical Evidence

From the official peer-reviewed scientific journal of the International Society of  Psychoneuroendocrinology, 87 (2018) 63–73:

Graduates of the evidence based mindfulness program for stress reduction, EBM for Stress Relief,  had 20% lower blood pressure and 50% lower cortisol levels than control groups in stressful situations when they used the Event section of the app.

New Research Published February, 2019:
EBM for Stress App also Reduces Loneliness, Increases Social Contact

Publication “Mindfulness training reduces loneliness and increases social contact in a randomized controlled trial”. Our 14 lesson training was shown to reduce daily-life loneliness by 22% and increase social contact by two more interactions each day than the “sham-placebo” and “concentration meditation only” interventions.

EBM Demo – Mindfulness Meditation App

Our evidence based mindfulness app for stress management, EBM app for Stress Relief, includes the validated proprietary content from the study preparing one for a stressful event or task. Our app offers additional guidance for practice in Daily Life, building on stress resilience skills taught in our course of 14  lessons.

How does it work?

Other apps hope to teach stress reduction in 5 minutes. Our evidence-based mindfulness app, EBM app for Stress Relief, offers a science-based form of mindfulness meditation training delivered in a brief (but not ineffectively too brief) course of 14 lessons that develop skills in stress resilience. Users commit to the training to graduate and unlock the Event Preparation booster guidance and to reap the evidence-based positive outcomes of this intervention. Our evidence-based mindfulness app for stress management features an easy-to-use, minimalistic design that effectively delivers the only stress resilience training shown to work in a randomized, blinded controlled study.

Comparison

Other apps that offer mindfulness meditation make promises, yet lack strong and objective scientific evidence to backup claims of stress reduction. Other apps may look entertaining and may work, but if you want to base your decision making on clinical data, then talk to us.

Forthcoming Modules

We also we have a version, at this time only available to researchers, that adds modules for Pain Management, Negative Urges, and Emotional Challenges. This additional content is based on the learning that graduates would receive in the same course of 14 lessons, and designed by the same domain expert in mindfulness that designed the EBM app for Stress Relief.  Once there is evidence of efficacy in those areas as well, we’ll make future evidence-based apps available for general use through institutions: EBM app for Pain Relief, etc.
