The culmination of many years of laboratory research, this autumn sees the launch of a ground-breaking new therapy which combines light and smell stimuli in a carefully modulated stimulus cycle to achieve profound psychological and physiological benefits.
Kodobio Sensory Therapy has been developed by Professor Tim Jacob of Cardiff University and extensively tested with impressive results.
An innovative user-friendly device, the Kodobio, is placed in front of the face to deliver the therapy treatment. Full spectrum bright white light (similar to sunshine) is emitted up and down on a 60 second cycle, along with a choice of key aromas which have been scientifically proven to have a positive result.
The effect on psychological state has been determined with the standard Profile of Mood States (POMS) test scientifically measuring mood in six dimensions.
Unlike aromatherapy, which is not scientifically accredited and includes a wide variety of smells, Kodobio Sensory Therapy uses only very specific aroma formulations which in extensive testing have improved the mood of the patients according to the same POMS test used to test drug treatments for depression.
Coupled with the widely documented effects of light therapy, KST is a winning combination, finely tuned to deliver sensory input in fluctuating cycles so as to maintain varied brain stimulation during the treatment to deliver its positive psychological and physiological benefits.
As a completely natural, non-invasive drug-free application, the new therapy launched at the Pharmacy Show at the NEC in Birmingham, UK looks set to be a popular choice for many suffering with stress or depression disorders.
Available for therapy treatment delivered in the pharmacy or medical centre environment, or for retail as a unit for home use, with capsule aroma refills the Kodobio provides a completely safe, natural positive effect on both body and mind, lowering blood pressure, reducing heart rate and improving psychological state.
