It's natural to wake up periodically throughout the night, but when falling back asleep becomes a problem, sometimes you need an extra push to help you relax. Which is why the Dodow Sleeping Lamp is designed to help rebalance your autonomic nervous system, and break the vicious circle of stress and anxiety that keep you awake.

How Dodow helps you:
By breathing long enough at the Dodow rhythm (6 respirations per minute), you stimulate the baroreflex, a small physiological mechanism that restores the balance of the autonomic nervous system. Thus, you will quickly pass from the alert state (activation of the sympathetic nervous system) to the resting state (activation of the parasympathetic nervous system), the same condition which you are in during digestion: slightly drowsy.
Synchronizing your breathing to a light pulse at a slow and steady rhythm has a hypnotic effect (the phenomenon is similar to watching a pendulum). Thus, after a few minutes you are able to let go and sleep.
After a few months, you will regain confidence in yourself, you will realize that your body knows how to fall asleep alone, when the mind or anxiety do not interfere. You can then take the place of Dodow!

A few questions before making your decision
Why is the light blue?
Bright blue light can wake you up due to your body producing melatonin.
Don't worry, this isn't the case with Dodow! Our blue light is at a low intensity, plus you won't even be looking at it directly as it's projected onto the ceiling.
We've done numerous tests and this colour blue is proven to be the most efficient for helping you drift off to sleep.
Does it work with kids?
Yes! We've had parents tell us that their child used to take several hours to get to sleep, after the introduction of Dodow their child falls asleep in a matter of minutes. If your child is happy to use the product, you can help them to use it correctly and even do it with them the first time. The youngest child we've worked with was a 6-year-old.
Does the product come with batteries?
Dodow is delivered with batteries, all ready to help you get your precious shut-eye. The product uses AAA batteries which are pretty easy to find in shops - they're the same ones used in your remote control.
Does it turn off by itself?
Yes, Dodow turns itself off at the end of the exercise, after 8 or 20 minutes depending on the setting you have chosen.
