Frequently asked questions

Why do I even need a tool?
We all tend to forget about the simplest things, all the time. Breathing is not an exception. Apart from being a beautiful jewelry piece, the Shift is your physical reminder to breathe.

“The shift gives me a sense of calm just wearing it. I even showed my therapist and she thought it was an awesome idea - she ordered one for herself!”

How is this different from a straw?
We created The Shift in a partnership with a psychotherapist and meditation experts. We used data from over one year of testing to engineer the ideal length and diameter to produce the ideal exhale of 8-10 seconds.

I’m a respiratory therapist. I saw someone comment a straw can do the same thing....well not exactly. It doesn’t have the exact resistance this does to slow your exhalation. And much more fun than wearing a straw would be :)

How long does it take to work?
Within 2 minutes, the longer exhales activate your parasympathetic nervous system to calm your mind and body...

As soon as I used the shift I was able to quickly calm my entire body with ease and little thought.

How do I use the Shift?
Let one of the Komuso founders take it from here. Watch a 2 minute video, it’s totally worthy of it.
How long should my exhale be?
The intention of the Shift is to extend your exhale – make it longer than your average exhale. However, deeper and longer breaths have shown better results. As long as your exhalation is longer than your inhalation you’re triggering your parasympathetic nervous system to calm your mind (aka doing it right).
What is the Shift made of?
The Shift is made from 316 high polished stainless steel which makes it extremely durable, so no need to worry about plating fading or tarnishing. We just ask you take care of your Shift as you would any piece of jewelry.
What’s the difference between the Shift for her and for him?
There really is no difference between the Men's Shift and Women's Shift other than the chain it comes with.  Women's is a cable chain that measures 28" in length and is a little more delicate looking, while men's is a  25" ball chain.

Check out both chains at our shop.
