It’s a safe guess that low-level flying anxiety is far more common than anyone knows or admits. So I’ll admit it: I don’t like flying. The process is too laborious, in too small a space with too many people. Less on my mind is the possibility of falling out of the sky, but I suppose such morbidity flashes through my thoughts now and again.

New Product Introduced To Help Fight Effects Of Claustrophobia

Posted: June 22nd, 2010 | Author: Shawn_Bee | Filed under: News | No Comments »

NEW PRODUCT INTRODUCED TO HELP FIGHT EFFECTS OF CLAUSTROPHOBIA
Healthy Brands LLC launches calmspace™ with proprietary natural formula designed to utilize the power of olfactory stimulation in the fight against anxiety and stress

June 22, 2010 (CHICAGO, Ill.) – An estimated 33 million Americans suffer from claustrophobia, according to the American Psychiatric Association. Of that population, approximately 85% are women. Regardless, those who have been diagnosed, and even those who haven’t, fight daily battles against anxiety caused by a variety of situations, including crowded trains, planes and subway cars, tight spaces like elevators and MRI or CT scanners and jam-packed venues like stadiums, theaters and gymnasiums.

While a variety of treatments exist, there has never been a truly convenient, discreet, portable and personal option for those seeking immediate and impactful relief in the event of a pending claustrophobic attack. Now, Healthy Brands LLC is introducing calmspace, which delivers a proprietary therapeutic formula of 100% natural fragrance extracts that may help manage the anxiety resulting from claustrophobic reactions. The calmspace proprietary blend of organic, therapeutic essential oils has been proven effective in most, but not all, individuals who experience claustrophobia-induced symptoms such as sweating, accelerated heart beat, light headedness, shaking, hyperventilation, and generalized discomfort.

The calmspace product was conceived after the creators reviewed research done previously at a major U.S. medical facility and was developed and tested over the last two years by a team of people motivated to help those whose lives are negatively affected by claustrophobia and related anxiety issues. In December 2008, a study was conducted in Chicago, Illinois with the goal of validating the efficacy of the stress-reducing properties of essential oil formulas developed by Healthy Brands LLC.

In this study, twenty nine adults with both doctor and self-diagnosed claustrophobia inhaled proprietary blends of natural aromas formulated to the exact specifications of the creators prior to entering a crowded elevator. During a variety of experiments, 91% of the study participants who reported anxiety prior to boarding the elevator experienced a significant reduction in the effects of space-induced anxiety.
Based on this information and dozens of positive testimonials from sufferers who have used the product, Healthy Brands LLC will be bringing calmspace to the market in May, 2010. Two patent-pending formulas, Lavender and Vanilla, will be available. Both formulas blend natural fragrances with essential oils that may help alleviate anxiety resulting from claustrophobic and other stressful situations. In addition, both formulas are sold in easy, convenient and portable packages.
calmspace is easy to use. It is as simple as removing the cap, placing the scent under the nose and breathing deeply. The strength of the scent can be controlled by holding it either closer or further away from the nose. Another application option is to use the roller ball to apply directly to the skin on the wrist or the back of the hand and breathe the essence in deeply. This method provides an effective scent for approximately 45 minutes. And since each container is roughly the size of a tube of lip-balm, it is a discreet and portable solution that can easily be incorporated into anyone’s lifestyle or routine.
“The effectiveness of certain scents has been convincingly demonstrated to be effective in reducing stress,” said Michael S. Beaubaire, MD, Medical Director for Healthy Brands Group. “Based on our research and testing of countless formulations, we believe calmspace can provide a natural, convenient, portable alternative for those looking for a solution that fits their lifestyle.”

The science behind olfactory stimulation and the resulting impact on anxiety or stress is a work in progress. Numerous studies over the years have pointed to positive affects and many sufferers have credited aromas for helping them live a healthier, worry-free life. As a practical solution, calmspace is an affordable, low-risk alternative to hypnotherapy, prescription medications and other more aggressive solutions. And, its all-natural ingredients make it safe to try as there are no known side effects.

Both versions of the calmspace product are now available on the company’s website, www.calm-space.com. Both versions are available in convenient multi-use packages and the packaged to be distributed as a retail product, through drug and grocery stores as well as the mass merchandiser channel. The product is also designed to be sold for immediate use at places where claustrophobic episodes are common, including airports, commuter stops, train stations, and high-rise office buildings.

“We have seen firsthand the effects of claustrophobia and situational anxiety on a great number of people and know that it can truly negatively impact quality of life,” said Jim Burt, president of Healthy Brands LLC. “This product provides a convenient and discreet option for people who want to live life to its fullest and not worry about these conditions slowing them down or affecting their decisions.”
