The science behind
Unwinding Anxiety

Recent research has uncovered incredible insights on how the brain functions—and what can create patterns of anxiety and panic.

Research has also discovered the pathways that make the traditional practice of mindfulness so effective, and how to apply it specifically to the modern epidemic of anxiety. That’s why we created Unwinding Anxiety®.

In a 2020 clinical study of physicians, the Unwinding Anxiety® program showed a 48% reduction in anxiety after just 28 modules. And in a 2021 randomized trial of individuals with generalized anxiety disorder, these individuals experienced a 67% reduction in anxiety after 2 months of using the app.
