Geelong Medical and Health Group are proud to be a Professional Partner of Muse.
Muse: the brain sensing headband is a brain fitness tool that measures brain signals much like a heart rate monitor senses your heartbeat. Muse’s 7 finely calibrated sensors – 2 on the forehead, 2 behind the ears plus 3 reference sensors – detect and measure the activity of your brain.
We have Muse headbands AVAILABLE online as of early January…be quick to avoid missing out on the first arrival!
Why Choose MUSE?
It motivates you to change your brain
Muse is the first tool in the world that can give you accurate, real-time feedback on what’s happening in your brain while you meditate. It provides motivational challenges and rewards to encourage you to build a regular practice.
It gives you a lasting feeling of self-control
It improves how you respond to stress
In the short-term, meditation has been shown to trigger the natural relaxation response – a state of deep rest that changes the physiological and emotional responses to stress. Your metabolism decreases and your heartbeat slows. The muscles relax, breathing becomes slower, and your blood pressure decreases.
Extended use can have amazing and lasting results
A study showed that 20 minutes of meditation for 3 days in a row reduced anxiety, improved mood, and reduced heart rate. Research on longer sessions has documented other benefits, like increased gray matter density, reduced thinning of the prefrontal cortex, decreasing amygdala activity (associated with stress response), and increased resilience – basically, an overall beneficial change of the brain’s structure and function.
It is designed to help you form the habit
Research has shown using an app and starting with 3-5 minutes can dramatically help you build a meditation practice. Muse starts you with 3-minute sessions and rewards you for your achievements, making sure it’s easy and motivating to train with Muse (What are people saying?).
