Mastering/Hacking/Embracing the Breath

There are a lot of health and wellness trends out there. Sometimes, it’s hard to navigate what actually helps, whether or not it’s good for you, and if it’s something you absolutely “have to have” to live a better life. One thing that might have recently come up on your radar is the power of breathing properly, which may sound strange at first. As long as you’re breathing, you’re on track… right?! It turns out, we may not be getting the most out of our respirations. That’s where a breathing necklace comes into play.


A breathing necklace is a simple and easy way to help you harness your breath and the health benefits that go along with it. It may seem a little too simple to be true, but it’s not! This straightforward and uncomplicated tool can work wonders for a wide variety of reasons.


Here is an in-depth look at what a breathing necklace is and why it can be a great resource to help take your wellness to the next level.

What is a Breathing Necklace?

A breathing necklace is a small, lightweight tool that helps you master a healthy, controlled breathing technique. Featured as a wearable pendant, these charms help to remind you throughout the day to focus on deep, purposeful breathing. It’s kind of like writing a note on your hand reminding you to complete a task, except this reminder is hanging around your neck! 


The pendant itself looks a bit like a whistle or a portion of a straw but is made out of metal so that it’s durable and lasting.

What is a Breathing Necklace Used For?

As mentioned above, breathing necklaces are tools to help you control how you breathe. Most people know that slower breathing works to relax them, yet still don’t do it. Why? Because we take about 23,000 breaths per day and they’re all subconscious. 


Have you thought about how you’re breathing today? 


The power behind using these tools is that they are a physical reminder to slowly exhale through your mouth, stimulating the vagus nerve and helping your body relax. From falling asleep faster to naturally reversing anger or anxiety, breathing necklaces are designed to help you feel better throughout the day. So, whether you’re stuck in traffic, can’t sleep at night, or simply have an anxious mind, you’ll have a physical reminder to breathe purposefully and release that tension. 


Even better, those slower breaths become more consistent as a daily practice the more you use the breathing necklace. You may find that certain situations that used to trigger anxiety no longer have such an impact on your mental health as you breathe steadily through it!


This“calm” switch for your body also has far-reaching physical benefits. In addition to improved and regulated emotions, you may also experience:


They can also help you kick habits like stopping vaping or smoking. Overall, they offer a plethora of benefits and all you have to do is breathe!

How to Use a Breathing Necklace

Using the tool correctly is key to getting the most out of your breathing necklace. The process is simple: take a deep inhale through your nose, then simply release your exhale through the breathing necklace to allow for a guided release. A natural exhalation is crucial, so monitoring yourself and ensuring you're not forcibly blowing into the tool is important.


To feel the full effect of utilizing a breathing necklace, repeat this cycle for 5 minutes.


How to inhale:

  • Place one hand on your chest and the other on your belly.
  • Inhale slowly through the nose.
  • Breathe into your belly.
  • The hand on your belly should move. Not the one on your chest.
  • Fill your belly up with air and pause when full.


How to exhale:

  • Play around with exhaling through the nose and the mouth.
  • Start slowly. As slowly as you can.
  • Exhale all of your air out.
  • Feel the hand on your belly move again.
  • Pause for a second before the next inhale.


Once you’ve mastered this, start adding it to your daily routine! The more you practice, the faster your subconscious brain will catch on to this powerful technique.


Here’s an easy way to harness these benefits throughout your day.

  • Set a timer for 60 minutes. 
  • Every time the timer goes off, breathe purposefully for 2-5 minutes. 
  • A slow, deep inhale followed by a slow, long exhale. 
  • Do this all day long or for a few hours and see how it affects your level of anxiety and stress.

Do Breathing Necklaces Really Work?

Think of your inhalations as the gas pedal and your exhalations as the brakes. Stress triggers short inhales which launches you into ‘fight or flight’ mode. With the state of the world nowadays and having phones and social media constantly reminding us of why we should be stressed, many of us are stuck in this state of fight-or-flight anxiety.


Breathing necklaces help to break that negative breathing pattern. Extending your exhales immediately reverses this state within two minutes by lowering cortisol (stress hormone), blood pressure, and heart rate. 


If you’re still feeling a little skeptical, let’s take a look at the science. Focusing on a slower, controlled exhale can have a variety of proven benefits.


  • Relaxation Response: Slow exhaling activates the body's relaxation system, helping to reduce stress and promote calmness.
  • Improved Heart Health: It boosts heart rate variability, which is linked to better stress management and heart health.
  • Vagus Nerve Activation: Slow breathing and exhaling stimulate the vagus nerve, which can help relax the body and potentially reduce inflammation.
  • Better Oxygen Exchange: Controlled exhalation helps balance oxygen and carbon dioxide in the lungs, improving overall breathing efficiency. 


So, do breathing necklaces really work? Absolutely!

What Breathing Necklace is Best?

The best of the best is the original breathing necklace: The Shift! Komuso created the very first breathing necklace that uses an ancient straw breathing technique (proven by Stanford Labs’ physiological sigh) to be the most effective way to calm the nervous system. The chamber is specifically measured to slow your exhale to 8+ seconds. And, since you can wear it, you are constantly reminded to breathe purposefully. 


The Shift was actually inspired by the 17th-century Japanese monks called Komuso, who used a flute called the Shakuhachi to meditate. The meditation was known as “blowing zen.” That’s not a bad goal to have, right?

How Is The Shift Made?

We use medical grade 316 stainless steel that bakes the precious metal colors all the way through the piece through a proprietary process. This is important because the color in most jewelry wears down, or the plating chips or cracks. Our goal was to avoid this so that you can use your Shift Breathing Necklace for years.


Our customers also receive free breathing techniques, tips, and advice on how to get the most out of this life-changing tool. 

It Seems Expensive...

We have partnered with the world’s leading stainless-steel provider to ensure the highest quality product. The materials we use stand up to European testing methods. Why? We wanted a product that is durable, elegant, and functional, designed and tested to help you breathe better and we wanted it to last.


We also use recycled metals. While this increases costs, it also helps our planet. A healthier planet means a healthier environment for us to breathe in!


Finally, we want you to feel a long-term connection with the necklace. This isn’t a trend or a fad for us. It’s not something we imagine you’ll wear occasionally. The Shift is an investment into breathing better as a habit...which makes you feel better on demand. Our hope is that you’ll wear it every day so that you can harness this powerful breathing technique.


We’re so confident in our product, that we offer a risk-free trial for 30 days so you can return it if you feel the price doesn’t match the experience.

How Does It Compare to Competitors on Amazon, TEMU, or Etsy?

As the proud original creators of the breathing necklace, we’ve seen many copies of our concept out there now. 


Our team designed, patented, and released this necklace concept five years ago using a tested circumference and diameter. We spent time researching and testing to ensure we could give you a product that is long-lasting and can actually help you harness the power of breathwork. There’s a reason we only use medical-grade stainless steel and bake precious metal colors into the piece!


We didn’t cut any corners and have spared no expense to ensure its quality. 


Breathing is our passion, which is why we created a tool that you can have for the rest of your life. We want you to love it so much that you convince your loved ones that they need one as well because it can make that significant of an impact on mental and physical health. 


That’s why we not only created the best product possible but also a course to help you master using it! We didn’t want to just sell you a tool and close the door. We also wanted to teach you how to use it and how to get the most out of it so you get real results. That’s what it’s all about. We know how powerful the impact can be from mastering better breathing, and we want you to experience it. That’s why we established our course, TKM: The Komuso Method. You wouldn’t buy a guitar without also researching how to play and create music. The Shift can create change, but first, you have to master the technique! 


Our course provides a daily formula to easily incorporate best practices in mental health and wellness. By teaching you how best to use your Shift and combining breathwork, emotional granularity, and reticular activation, you’ll learn how to make a habit of feeling more calm and in control.


This deep passion for helping you achieve success is what we believe further sets us apart from our competitors. You’re not just a customer to us– we genuinely want to help you breathe and feel better!
