Frequently Asked Questions
What is OPUS™?
OPUS™ is like a home gym for your heart. SoundBed™ uses vibroacoustic technology to deliver low-frequency vibrations throughout your body that quickly releases you out of stress response and into a place of deep relaxation and receptivity. The OPUS™ platform will include journeys, live experiences, guides and community to support you on your path to greater emotional fitness.
What we do
The OPUS™ SoundBed™ uses vibroacoustic technology to deliver low-frequency vibrations throughout your body that quickly releases you out of stress response and into a place of deep relaxation and receptivity. We combine this with spatial sound using headphones to bring your awareness swiftly into the present moment, and proven healing practices (like meditation and breathwork) facilitated by our expert guides to amplify your experience.
Why we do it
The better we can guide and elevate our emotions, the more powerfully we meet the demands of life, the more consciously we can shift our feeling state, and the stronger our relationships and ability to create the life we desire.
With this Immersive SoundHealing™ method, you can reliably shift and sustain whatever energetic state you desire, whether that’s deeper calm and relaxation, improved focus and performance, or heightened creativity and connection to purpose.
And to top it off - the experience simply feels great, like being immersed in a cocoon of pleasurable sensation. It’s the way we are taking the “work” out of “inner work.”

SoundBed quickly rolls into a compact 24’ x 24’ x 24’ footprint when not in use and is designed to seamlessly integrate into both your daily routine and any room of your home. (DISCLAIMER: For optimal experience, kitchen and bathroom are not recommended.)
What if I’m concerned about EMF?
We intend to include an “offline” mode for anyone concerned with EMF. This feature would limit the bluetooth/wifi connection to only when a media file is being downloaded to SoundBed™ to be played locally, and will be off at all other times while using the device.
Do you provide headphones or can I use my own?
You'll have the option to use your own headphones, and we'll be recommending certain pairs of noise-canceling headphones on our site that we know will help support the best SoundBed™ experience.
How does it work?
This is a vibroacoustic SoundBed™ that allows you to listen to meditations, frequencies, music and translates it into a full somatic experience of vibration throughout the body. It can be used to amplify other modalities such as meditation, breath work, SoundHealing™, and more.
What does it do?
SoundBed™ uses vibroacoustic technology to deliver low-frequency vibrations throughout your body that quickly releases you out of stress response and into a place of deep relaxation and receptivity.

Why 7 Minutes?
In our 2000+ test session while developing the product we really tried to emphasize the minimal viable impactful experience, we found that users reliably found results in as little as 7 minutes.
What frequencies are used?
It can channel a wide range of frequencies. There will be many diverse audio journeys you can experience that will integrate different frequencies, isometric tones, etc. aligned with different parts and energies of the body and desired brainwave states. The bed itself vibrates at deeper hz while the audio (headphone) experience will be the full range of audible frequencies.
We're collaborating with experienced audio and vibroacoustic engineers, sound healers, expert guides and others in the "music as medicine" space to ensure that the content for SoundBed™ (including frequencies used) is optimized for the three pillars of our emotional fitness approach - to restore (heal), to shift (elevate), and to create (attract). SoundBed™ is a very powerful tool and we take our responsibility very seriously for ensuring a safe and optimal experience.
How many Soundbeds™ can I power in one room?
A standard modern household circuit (14 AWG / 20A) can power up to 6 SoundBeds concurrently at max power consumption. Homes built before 1980 may have a lower capacity (12 AWG / 10A) and can power up to 4 SoundBeds per circuit concurrently at max power consumption.
Can my kids use SoundBed™?
SoundBed™ is generally safe for children to use, though if they have a serious medical condition we suggest consulting your doctor before use. We count children ages 6 to 11 among our 3,000+ beta testers and children tend to enjoy the experience as much as adults. As an appropriate description of her child after the experience, one mom referred to her daughter as “her little zen baby.”
Where is SoundBed™ made?
SoundBed™ is manufactured and with purpose in Austin, TX.
Can I sleep on SoundBed™?
While the bed is designed to be a comfortable experience, and therefore can be used to sleep on, this isn’t a proper mattress for long-term and optimal sleep.
Can I use this in my wellness center?
The OPUS™ SoundBed™ can be used both in wellness centers as well as for personal use in homes, apartments, etc.
We know what a great addition SoundBed™ will be to existing wellness practices. So, we're integrating with many wellness centers, spas, healing spaces. etc. We'd love to include you on our healing practitioners email list. This list includes specific information on how to integrate SoundBed™ into your healing centers and other best practices.

I have a medical condition, is this safe?
Vibroacoustic therapy influences the body by passing pure low frequency sine wave vibrations between 30 to 120 Hz into the body. The Food and Drug Administration has approved vibroacoustic therapy for increasing circulation, pain relief, and increasing mobility. Vibroacoustic therapy is being evaluated to treat a number of conditions including fibromyalgia, cerebral palsy,and Alzheimer's Disease.[SOURCE]
*Vibroacoustic therapy may not be recommended for some conditions. Please consult with your medical professional.
How would this work for someone who is hearing impaired?
SoundBed™ will provide substantial healing benefits even to someone who is hearing impaired. There are two main elements to Immersive SoundHealing™ provided by the bed 1)spatial sound and 2)spatial vibration. The spatial sound (what you hear through your headphones) will of course be affected. Yet the spatial vibration (what you FEEL throughout your body through low-frequency vibration) will be just as powerful–helping your mind and body drop out of stress response, enter a deep meditative state, and return to natural harmony. From our research, we have the capacity to "hear" vibration through every cell of our bodies, not just our ears, so since SoundBed™ plays journeys to the entire body, they will retain much of their healing benefits. And while many of our journeys will also include spoken guidance from expert guides, the vibration itself has already been proven through vibroacoustic therapy to be highly effective in helping improve both physical and emotional wellbeing.
Do you ship internationally?
As of right now SoundBed™ is only able to be shipped within the United States. Our team is currently working on the most effective way to ship internationally. Please note there will be a shipping fee based on the international destination.
What is your return policy?
We are currently in pre-production and will be launching and shipping out early 2022. Once you receive SoundBed you'll have a 30-day risk free trial period, during which you may return it for any reason for a full refund. More details regarding our return policy and process for SoundBed™ will be available closer to launch.
