For those who have a hard time tuning it all out and de-stressing, there’s a new gadget that can help.

Thync, which specializes in neurostimulation wearable devices, is launching the Thync Relax Pro. The Relax Pro – Thync’s second generation device – aims to relieve stress and “encourage restful sleep and relaxation.”

It works by sticking to the back of your neck and delivering stress relief through “gentle nerve stimulation.”

Here’s how it works.


You’ll need to download an app to make the device work. Within the app, you can choose between two modes: Thync Deep Relax and Thync Deep Sleep. Thync’s first device was focused more on calming and energizing, but the new device hones in on poor sleep caused by stress.

By using the Deep Sleep setting before bed, Thync promises you’ll reach a “drowsy and peaceful state.” The Deep Relax setting is intended to release stress and improve your mood.

The device works by sticking to your neck via a pad with electrodes on it.

You may not see results right away, and Thync recommends using the device regularly for four to six weeks to see lasting results.
