US – The start-up uses music for a new approach to meditation and mindfulness practices.
Sitting at the intersection of technology, music and wellness, Wave’s two-part system provides a multi-sensory, music-guided meditation experience at home. The kit includes a vibrating bolster pillow and custom, over-ear headphones, plus a subscription-based app for streaming original, genre-less music. Used together, these elements are designed to make meditation more immersive.
Breathing exercises and more than 80 original tracks available via the Wave app sync with the vibrating bolster to allow users to feel each beat and breath. ‘We want to make some noise in an industry of silence by creating an immersive at-home experience that's fun, positive, and empowering,’ reads the Wave website. ‘We're here to elevate your state of mind, one track at a time.’
By putting music at the core of its wellness offering, Wave reflects how music is emerging as the next frontier for health and wellbeing. Look out for our Music as Medicine microtrend, launching on LS:N Global soon.
