The Shift is the first of its kind so we can appreciate the initial confusion.
We were inspired by the proven straw breathing technique to silently calm the mind by wanted to design something more practical and worn as a commitment o breathing better.
We use medical grade 316 stainless steel with precious metal colors baked through so it can be used safely everyday.
We also tested and patented the tube length and diameter in order to create ideal exhalations that physiologically trigger calm.
You could absolutely use a straw but we found that radon sizing can be ineffective and flatten in your pocket.
Wearing the Shift as a necklace is a commitment to breathing better as a daily habit.
