The Science of Syntropy

Science, Books, and other interesting things...


Syntropy States is based in science. Our Breath Pacers and Relaxation Aids employ the scientifically proven benefits of breathwork, art and music therapy, meditation and emotion regulation. Large bodies of current research support the work that we do.


Using Audio Visual breath pacers is a form of Focussed Attention Meditation (FAM) where attention is place on both an external (the art and music) and internal (the breath) source. FAM improves interoception, benefits cognitive performance and attention and reduces stress.


Slow, deep and balanced nasal breathing at a rate of around 6 breaths per minute has multiple benefits including improved mood and feelings of calm alertness; optimal physical and cognitive function (coherence); optimized energy supply; improved CO2 homeostasis; benefits to cardiorespiratory health; increased vagal tone.

Geometric Art

Art therapy is proven to absorb the mind and reduce anxiety. Abstract art bypasses the conscious “meaning making” mind. Geometries like mandalas have been shown in clinical studies to reduce stress, lower blood pressure, reduce depression, ease pain, improve sleep and boost the immune system.


Slower and more rhythmic music reduces stress, increases relaxation, benefits cardio respiratory function, reduces pain, facilitates the experience of positive emotions.
