RESPeRATE is the only non-drug therapy cleared by the FDA for the treatment of high blood pressure and the reduction of stress. It is the first medical device that has been clinically proven to lower blood pressure.

RESPeRATE is a portable computerized device that guides you through sessions of therapeutic breathing, powerful enough to lower blood pressure.

Use RESPeRATE for just 15 minutes a few times a week and it will deliver a significant all-day blood pressure reduction. It is available without a prescription and used by more than 250,000 men and women worldwide to lower high blood pressure naturally.

    • Not a Drug
    • Proven in 10 clinical trials to lower blood pressure
    • No Side Effects
    • Doctor Recommended
    • Pleasant and Easy to Use


High blood pressure is generally caused by your blood vessels tightening up and narrowing. This then causes your heart to pump harder. RESPeRATE’s unique breathing exercise relaxes constricted blood vessels to reduce high blood pressure.

Harness the natural power of breathing to lower blood pressure!

    • When you use RESPeRATE, you put on headphones and attach a sensor around your chest.
    • RESPeRATE’s breathing sensor automatically analyzes your individual breathing pattern and creates a personalized melody composed of two distinct inhale and exhale guiding tones.
    • Simply listen to the melody through the headphones, and your body’s natural tendency to follow external rhythms will enable you to easily synchronize your breathing to the tones.
    • By gradually prolonging the exhalation tone to slow your breathing, RESPeRATE leads you to the therapeutic zone of less than 10 breaths per minute.
    • Within a few minutes, the muscles surrounding the small blood vessels in your body relax, blood flows more freely, and your blood pressure is significantly reduced.
