After a long wait and longer waiting list - Luma³ is now in stock and ready for new customers.
Mental health and sleep problems are rife within society… so a former secondary school teacher has now created a revolutionary invention to ease them using nothing more than the power of deep breathing.
It’s well-known that conscious breathing - slowing and controlling breathing - can help to calm people down if they are feeling anxious and this invention helps people with a range of conditions from stress and depression to post traumatic stress disorder. It also helps them to drift into a deep sleep.
Inventor Michael Crinnion saw the impact of mental health first hand in schools where he was responsible for how mental health affected both students and staff where he taught. As a pastoral leader he shared his experience of conscious breathing in his schools, having used the technique for 20 years to help manage his own anxiety.
Now the 40-year-old has invented Luma³ - short for Lumacube - a handy-sized cube which uses soft waves and pulses of gentle, soothing light and colour to guide people’s breathing so they can simply focus on their breath and not worry about timings. It naturally induces a feeling of wellbeing and calmness.
Luma³ can be used at work – a pre-set timer gently nudges people to take a 5-minute conscious breathing break every hour – and is also ideal at night to help people drift into a deep sleep. A gentle cascade of colours can also help relaxation – like you’re in your own spa – and it’s powered by a rechargeable battery so can be taken everywhere with you.
Sleep health specialist Dr Kat Lederle said: “Luma³ offers a gentle nudge to pay attention to what we all do – breathe. Sleeping is a natural function and so is breathing. They can both impact one another. Luma³ provides a simple way to support both.”
The response so far from the pre-order customers has been superb - with a score of 4.6 out of 5 on Trustpilot. One person said “As somebody who has a history of anxiety, stress and worry I can try a range of different breathing techniques to tackle my anxiety. A fantastic product that I would recommend to anyone”. Another user said “A fantastic product that is amazingly easy to use but yet has such a dramatic effect!”
“Mental health is an emerging crisis in our schools and our young people desperately need to learn to self-soothe and regulate their emotions. Luma³ helps them learn to do this.”
Luma³ is needed like never before with one in eight children in the UK having a diagnosable mental health condition and one in six adults experiencing mental health problems. It’s a major issue in both schools and workplaces – but they can be eased by using Luma³ as it’s so simple to use.
Luma³ is especially ideal for people who work from home and university students to encourage them to take proper relaxation breaks hourly.
Michael – who was a design engineer before he became a teacher - is keen to give back to schools having seen the impact mental health can have on pupils. His 10:1 Initiative means that for every Luma³ sold, one will be donated to a school, college or university.
He said: “Mental health is an emerging crisis in our schools and our young people desperately need to learn to self-soothe and regulate their emotions. Luma³ helps them learn to do this.”
Profits from sales will also help Mind Body Goals fund and provide support in schools to directly support young people’s wellbeing and mental health.
