Breathe2Relax Health & Fitness


Breathe2Relax|Download the iPhone APP from AppStore

Breathe2Relax is a portable stress management tool which provides detailed information on the effects of stress on the body and instructions and practice exercises to help users learn the stress management skill called diaphragmatic breathing.Breathing exercises have been documented to decrease the body’s ‘fight-or-flight’ (stress) response, and help with mood stabilization, anger control, and anxiety management. Breathe2Relax can be used as a stand-alone stress reduction tool, or can be used in tandem with clinical care directed by a healthcare worker. Breathe2Relax now uses HealthKit and your Apple Watch device to measure your heart rate throughout your breathing exercise to help provide an even more complete picture of the relaxation experienced.

Impression and review of people to iPhone App [Breathe2Relax]!

  • Great app
    by Breach21 on July 15, 2021 at 7:26 pm

    While this is simple to use, it is very effective at starting and training relaxation skills. It’s at least as effective as many meditation apps and takes considerably less time. I wish it would log time in the Apple Health app. One other small issue is that the link to the Apple Watch is not very reliable.

  • Does not connect
    by akm1203 on May 26, 2021 at 9:27 pm

    This app does not connect to the internet. It’s nice to read about the breathing y the video should be the main way to learn.

  • Never Connects to Apple Watch
    by trw234 on May 11, 2021 at 5:30 pm

    This is a great app that needs to be updated. I open the app on my series 4 Apple Watch and it always tells me phone not reachable and never says anything else, even while the phone is in my hands searching for the heart rate. So it becomes a bit frustrating with each use but the breathing section works very well to easily change the times for inhaling and exhaling. I would give five stars when the app actually works with my watch.

    This app has changed my life. Learning to breathe from your diaphragm is a complete game changer. Make this app a habitAnd make a huge impact in your PTSD, anxiety, stress, depression, ADHD, EVERYTHING!

  • This app really works to relax you
    by Mr A Magoo on January 18, 2021 at 11:16 am

    The proven science is that slowing your breathing relaxes you. That’s all that’s needed to calm yourself. Inhale and exhale when the app says to, and you will get a very nice meditative feeling. Be sure to set the number of seconds for the inhale and the exhale; these will vary from person to person.

  • Unable to connect
    by MixedIndianBwoy on January 18, 2021 at 2:09 am

    This app was highly recommended by a doctor. Overall not terrible but I can’t connect from my Apple Watch nor will any of the videos connect. Hoping an update soon corrects these issues.

  • تطبيق رائع انصح به
    by أبا يمنى on December 5, 2020 at 4:35 am

    يساعدك على التدرب على تمرين التنفس العميق بطريقة مبسطة وخلفيات جميلة .

  • Love it!!!!
    by BecksLight on September 15, 2020 at 12:36 am

    It’s absolutely the best FREE meditating app out there in my opinion.

  • I accidentally gave this four stars
    by Jchclh1998 on September 10, 2020 at 6:49 pm

    I tried to use this app but never came up on my phone so no stars actually

  • Review
    by DarkMario96 on September 10, 2020 at 1:51 pm

    Best app that has helped me with anxiety. It was recommended by my doctor. I have horrible anxiety, and was told it was helpful for deep breathing exercises. I LOVE THIS APP. I was going into a strong anxiety daze, and used this app, it was a miracle. Very thankful for my doctor, and this app!

  • Excellent App
    by Kim831 on August 5, 2020 at 2:09 pm

    As a clinical psychotherapist, I recommend this to my clients regularly. This is the one app they say really helps in learning how to decrease panic and anxiety.

  • Can’t use the app
    by misstblue42 on July 16, 2020 at 3:40 pm

    On my iPad ..says I have no internet ..on my Android I can’t get passed the security section..very frustrating.

  • Sleep aid
    by Tig701 on July 15, 2020 at 11:42 am

    This app helps me relax and breathe. practice Breathing is good anytime

  • Helps with my arrhythmias...
    by NatWebster on July 12, 2020 at 3:34 am

    I’ve been diagnosed with congestive heart failure and sometimes my heart races and makes me very anxious. Using the app, I can usually calm myself and reduce my heart rate. It’s a godsend!

  • Straight forward
    by BryanaBerry on April 27, 2020 at 11:47 pm

    This is a very straight forward deep breathing application. I liked that the voices in this application weren’t computer like and there were choices for music. It is a bit hard to look at graphically but that’s not something I can’t overlook. THANK YOU for creating an app where I can adjust the breathing time. I have never liked breathing apps because I am always focused on not suffocating myself (Im not sure why but I have always had limited lung capacity) I can actually relax now that I know I’m not “breathing wrong”.

  • Alannah S- Breath2Relax Review
    by Lane1713 on March 24, 2020 at 3:59 pm

    I downloaded this app with the hope it would help me when dealing with anxiety/stress. It helps with breathing. The app makes it so you can speed the breathing up and slow it down as well. There is a voice narrating, telling you when to breathe in and when to breathe out and the number of breathing cycles you have gone through. Very relaxing voice and helps get to sleep as well! Would recommend!! In my Abnormal Psychology class, we learned that deep breathing relaxes, helps to relieve stress, and lower heart rate. You learn to focus on your breathing, making sure you are taking slow, deep breaths.

  • It needs an update.
    by opise2 on March 22, 2020 at 9:30 pm

    Can you making compatible with iPhone 5 series it keeps popping up I it’s not compatible with iPhone 5. and it’s getting annoying can you please fix it.

  • No internet connection
    by Buddha3233 on March 19, 2020 at 5:11 pm

    This app first thing told me it cannot stream because of no internet connection......which is false

  • Doesn’t connect to Apple Watch
    by EAA123cat on January 29, 2020 at 2:40 pm

    The app would’ve been fantastic accept that it doesn’t connect to my Apple Watch. It keeps saying it’s not reachable. It also doesn’t show video as it says there no internet connection when there is!

  • Lags Current Apple Ecology
    by Borstal Sweeney on January 6, 2020 at 6:02 am

    App needs updating – using IOS 13.3, it fails to recognize internet connection; Bluetooth connection (for heart rate data from Apple Watch. The basic app is very useful, but would be much more so if it integrated fully with Apple Watch/iPhone.

  • A Great App!!!
    by master flying pigs on October 1, 2019 at 12:34 am

    This app really helps me keep calm and stay relaxed. I have a lot of anxiety and this app has really, and I mean really helped me stay relaxed and calm! I give this app 5 stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

  • No video
    by mankokp on September 4, 2019 at 7:17 pm

    Looks like the developer doesn't seem to care about about the app not showing video because of the lack of a Internet connection when you have one would have given zero stars if I could

  • Everyone should have this app
    by Dunksterr on August 27, 2019 at 3:17 pm

    My assigned PTSD psychologist at the VA recommended me this app. I was very skeptical at first but wow. This app improved my quality of life just with simple breathing techniques. Just follow on screen guidance and audio directions. The app talks to you in a calming tone and takes you step by step through each breath. This app is really awesome but I gave 4 stars instead of five because I wish instead of music one could select a nature soundtrack like jungle sounds or a thunderstorm for example. That would be really neat. But all in all wonderful app, would recommend.

  • Videos Dont Work
    by SarahEDC on July 14, 2019 at 9:18 pm

    I used to love this app and recommended it to my clients. However, the learn and show me how videos no longer work. They say I'm not connected to the internet, but I am and they will not play.

  • not happy
    by skunkbuster on April 21, 2019 at 10:44 pm

    this app stops every 2 minutes to tell you to return to your surroundings. Maddening and no settings for duration.

  • Good app
    by Duthie1968 on April 6, 2019 at 1:21 am

    Would like it to have time option include, ie 5, 10, 15, 20 mins and also the ability to set a timer for notification/reminder. Like all the other features offered, very useful! Recommended to me by the VA biofeedback group for PTSD. 👍🏻

  • Doesn’t recognize internet connection
    by rwny on March 30, 2019 at 3:21 pm

    Good exercise but app says no internet connection even though connection is fine. Resetting network connections did not solve problem. I suspect app has problem with current IOS version, 12.1.4

  • Trying to pair my iWatch and it’s telling the phone is not reachable. My iPhone is right next to it
    by Sctxca on March 14, 2019 at 3:14 am

    I am trying to pair my watch and it’s telling me my phone is not reachable. My phone is right next to the watch....???

  • Unable to fully test or even use app.
    by RP/C on March 3, 2019 at 3:02 pm

    App complained there was no internet connection. There was. It said it could not obtain heart rate info even though I enabled it. Other apps had no issues. HeartWatch could communicate just fine with the watch as did others. Facebook and Reddit both had no issues connecting to the internet. So all in all a waste of time.

  • love this app!
    by Waste of money!! 🙁 on January 8, 2019 at 12:38 am

    whenever i’m feeling really stressed, i just come to this app and no matter where i am, i put in headphones and just relax and distress myself. usually takes about 2-3 rounds of it for me to calm down, but very good for stressed people (such as myself) highly recommend.

  • Keeps me level
    by ronitos on November 23, 2018 at 12:54 am

    I like doing Breathe2relax before work and chores helps keep stress level low.

  • Works really well, very intuitive
    by ArleneJoy on October 26, 2018 at 7:26 pm

    Been using this app For several weeks, and I love that it’s very well thought out. I can adjust how long the breath’s in and out are. The music and visuals are beautiful and soothing. Not much I would change!

  • Buggy
    by Aces&deuces on October 22, 2018 at 8:19 pm

    During session, when trying to add more time to the lengths exhale, the whole exhale timer will reset to 16 secs, totally disrupting the entire breathing session. Please correct this issue

  • Timing issue
    by JM181001 on September 7, 2018 at 1:14 pm

    I agree with the previous comment regarding being able to set a 10-20-30-40 min session to breath instead of it timing out after 16 breaths.

  • Good app
    by triggeredturtle on August 20, 2018 at 2:12 am

    Helps u sleep

  • Longer
    by Ssmetanarn on August 7, 2018 at 11:54 am

    Please consider longer cycles. I enjoy the music and the breathing cycles but I find that I am not completely free when the cycles end.

  • Liked the app. Don’t like the reporting
    by Stock143 on July 15, 2018 at 11:45 am

    The terms & conditions updated and were very strongly worded. It sounded like if you used this app they were reporting your info to the government. Most T&Cs have some data collection for the developers use, but this seemed so over-the-top that I deleted the app. Not interested in being involved in some science experiment. The app is well designed and worked well so I’m bummed that I had to get rid of it. The interface wasn’t very attractively designed though.

  • so helpful!!
    by cmw3218 on April 7, 2018 at 4:36 am

    i always use this app! having a panic/anxiety disorder has never been fun... but this app helps me get through my attacks and works just as well as medicine.

  • Relaxing happens fast
    by BerwickReview on April 4, 2018 at 7:26 pm

    Can set a short or a long session depending on time. The effects I find are immediate. I feel better right away. Non-judgy vibe.

  • Graph
    by Olive11111 on March 18, 2018 at 7:02 pm

    I don’t understand the graph and it’s not explained.

  • Great for anxiety
    by Momocrafts on March 15, 2018 at 5:34 pm

    I have an anxiety disorder and this helps me many times throughout the day take a step back and focus on breathing. Good for relaxation and also good for grounding.

  • None of the videos work
    by JacksonEForest on February 28, 2018 at 9:36 pm

    Was suggested this app by my counselor and it is great and I find the breathing help extremely useful. But all the learning tools are broken, none of the videos work.

  • Fantastic except videos
    by RachelKuhneal on February 26, 2018 at 3:19 am

    This app has a simplistic layout, which breaks down the information into easy to understand preset categories. Providing reason and relevance as well as practical guided skills for managing stress through breathing. As a community mental health case manager I will be encouraging my transition age youth clients to use this tool. It will also help me to practice self care in my daily life. My one fault with this app are the missing instructional videos. “Show Me How”, How to Breath, Biology if Breathing, and Effects of Stress on the Body” all have an error stating “No Video by that ID”.

  • Where are the videos??
    by ellsw on February 11, 2018 at 2:58 pm

    This is supposed to be a good app and does appear to be helpful, but when I try to use video tabs, it says “No video by that ID”?????

  • Really helpful
    by Supaguy on January 22, 2018 at 2:28 pm

    I got this app to help my 10-year-old deal with anxiety and panic attacks. It turns out that I use it as much as she has. Not only does it help me relax, but repeated sessions help quiet my mind and help me fall asleep. My only complaint if you could call it that – it’s actually a suggestion – is that options for 10 minutes, 15 minutes, and 20 minutes cycles be provided. I would prefer not to have to start the cycle over after every 16 breath session. However, it is amazing what can be accomplished in 16 breaths.

  • DoD?
    by I hate this game!!!!!!!!! on December 22, 2017 at 11:39 pm

    Why is this a DoD app? Anyway, great app i feel like Buddha

  • Great app
    by Amiswas on December 20, 2017 at 11:56 pm

    I love how you can adjust everything for your pace and I like the results bar.

  • Fantastic program
    by TJ sjb on December 4, 2017 at 5:06 pm

    I am using this as a part of my blood pressure reduction program. It is an excellent app for proper breathing and stress reduction.

  • Good breathing good life!
