Reflect is a handheld soft Orb that uses biofeedback to help you teach yourself to relax. The Reflect Orb collects physiological signals from the tip of your fingers, processes them, and reflects your mental state back to you with a glowing light ring that changes colors in response to your stress levels. Over time and with continuous use, practicing with Reflect will give you better control over your stress and anxiety, and improve your wellbeing across the board.
The Reflect Orb measures and analyzes your body’s physiological signals and provides a continuous visual indication of your mental state. The calmer you are, the closer to white the light ring will be. This feedback helps you guide yourself towards a more calm state.
Tense is Purple
Alert is Blue
Relaxed is Turquoise
Calm is White
The Reflect App is a companion to The Orb, augmenting your experience with data and insights while deepening your understanding of your journey towards relaxation. Through The App, you will be able to track your stress levels during your sessions with The Orb on a daily, weekly, and monthly basis. Download the app here.
A Reflect practice does not require the app. In fact, you need both your hands for the practice, so no phones! After your session with the Orb, your practice data is synced in the app. This will allow you to see the impact of your practice with graphs and charts that are reflecting your personal practice. The App is a tool for self-reflection that can be used after each of your sessions and does not need to be used in conjunction with the Orb to begin a session.
The Science Behind Reflect
Reflect uses biofeedback to measure physiological signals that indicate stress, which includes HRV (Heart Rate Variability) and EDA (ElectroDermal Activity). These signals are measured through biofeedback sensors where you hold your fingers on the Orb.
Biofeedback is a scientifically proven method used to improve physical, mental and emotional wellbeing. Physiological signals such as heart rate, body temperature, and skin conductance are measured and presented to you in real-time, and through tracking your progress, you can learn how to regulate them.
With the help of Reflect’s biofeedback-driven experience, you can become more aware of your body’s physiological stress responses and learn to better manage your stress. Over time, you can improve your control over your personal wellbeing.

What biofeedback brings unconscious physiological processes into your consciousness. By being aware of what your body is doing in real-time (such as reacting to stress), you can influence its reactions. Biofeedback devices monitor your body and show you what it does, so you can change it.
For example: many of us know that when we are very stressed we get sweaty palms, but we only associate this with very extreme stress feelings. What most of us are not aware of is that the level of sweat in our palms is a very accurate indicator of our stress levels. Even the most minor changes, changes we can’t even notice, are significant in telling us how much stress we are in. Basically the more stress = the more sweat.
Some biofeedback devices, such as Reflect, measure our “sweaty palms” which is scientifically known as EDA (Electro-Dermal Activity). This measurement shows us how stressed we are through various mediums (in Reflect’s case, with changing light colors). Once we are able to see this previously hidden process, we learn to control it. The magic here is that it works both ways. Not only does more stress cause more sweat, but if you reduce your EDA (read: sweat) ~ you can reduce stress.
Reflect brings biofeedback into your comfort zone with a small, soft orb that you can use everywhere ~ at home, in the office, on vacation. Wherever life takes you, you can take Reflect with you so that you can easily sneak in a few minutes of relaxation practice into your busy schedule.
Usage & Benefits
Using the Reflect Orb is simple: sit in a comfortable position and hold it in your hands. You can put on relaxing music, pair it with a guided meditation or simply focus on your senses during each session. As sessions are personalized, feel free to sit with the Orb for as long you wish ~ from a few minutes to over an hour. Once you’ve finished, check-in with the app to get more details about your mental state during the session to better understand your levels of relaxation and overall personal progress.
The Reflect App tracks your journey with Reflect and helps you understand the tangible impact of your meditation practice.
Once linked to your Reflect Orb, you can track and analyze your progress, log details about sessions, journal your thoughts, and more.
The Reflect App also provides tips for relaxation, meditation reminders, and encouragements to support you on your personal wellbeing journey.
Using Reflect is about your personal wellbeing journey, not about results. We know that this journey is not always a straight line – some days it’s easier to focus, some days are more stressful.
Are you a creature of habit that needs some meditation space in the morning? Do you prefer to take some time during your busy day to pause and do breathing exercises? Do you need time to settle down and create a calming environment before going to sleep? Reflect is here to empower your version of wellbeing, no matter how you go about it.
Reflect helps you carve out “me time” during your day to find focus and bring more relaxation into your life. When you take time to pause, breathe and decompress more regularly, you begin to see the long-lasting benefits to your mental, physical and emotional health.
The Reflect experience is based on biofeedback ~ a scientific therapy method that is regularly used to help people who suffer from anxiety with learning how to regulate their physiological anxious responses. Reflect helps you shut out the noise of the world so you can take a pause during your day when you are feeling overwhelmed or stressed. All you need is your Reflect Orb and a quiet, comfortable spot where you can relax your mind.
Reflect is an easy way to insert mindful moments into your life on a daily basis, and is adaptable to your needs and routine.
The Orb is portable, and sessions can be as short as a few minutes or as long as you need. You can also use the app to set notifications to set aside time in your day for self-reflection. Essentially, it’s a unique biofeedback device that can be used when and where you need it most.
