The Science

Thync Magnifying Glass

Your body is constantly balancing the activity between your sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems. The sympathetic system is associated with a “fight or flight” response to help regulate your reaction to stress. The parasympathetic system counteracts stress to help you enter a relaxed “rest and digest” mode.

Thync has developed proprietary neurosignaling technology (“Vibes”) that deliver signals to the brain through these three neural pathways. As a result, your body is able to effectively balance these nerves as you choose.

Thync Neural Pathway

Neurosignaling builds upon the best features of long-standing tDCS and TENS techniques by using pulsed currents with lower-intensity and higher-frequency outputs delivered through bio-compatible materials for greater safety and comfort.

Is Thync Safe

Yes, it is safe! Thync has been scientifically proven to cause no harm. Thync Vibes have been developed over 4 years of clinical research, documentation and user studies by Thyncs team of neuroscientists and engineers. The Thync system is a safe, low-risk transdermal neurostimulation device intended to deliver pulsed neurostimulation waveforms to modulate psychophysiological arousal. It is intended for lifestyle use at home, work or in wellness applications to temporarily induce mental relaxation and calmness, or increase energy, awareness and alertness. It is not intended to treat or diagnose any disease or medical condition. Thync was developed over forty years of clinical research, documentation and user studies that support the safety and tolerability of our limited output neurosignaling approach. Based on intended use and output characteristics, the FDA notified Thync that its documentation on consumer use supports the safety and tolerability of their limited output neurosignaling approach. If you are susceptible to Reflex Syncope (fainting) as a result of donating blood, getting a shot or due to anxiety then please consult your physician before purchasing a Thync System.

Thync Parachute

The low-risk electrical impulses that Thync uses are so minimal that the product is not subject to medical device regulations by the FDA.

Thync Hourglass

The Thync System builds on more than 40 years of extensive research and documentation that supports the safety and tolerability of their limited output approach.

Thync Infinity

Thync’s engineers designed the Vibe Strips to chemically change during use making Vibes safe and comfortable.

Thync Wand

Except for the good stuff! Thync vibes safely and temporarily induce mental relaxation or calmness.

Thync Books

The effects of Thync get even better with time. In their sleep studies, 1 week has effects similar to 4 weeks of meditation or 8 weeks of melatonin.

Thync Eye

By using only Medical grade adhesives, Thync Vibe Strips are biocompatible and non-irritating.

Is Thync working

Thync Will it Work

Like any sort of training, Thync gets better with time, and lasting results are best with regular use (4-6 times per week.)

Thync Vibe Adjusment

Thync also recommends running each vibe 3-5 times to discover the level that works best for you.

Thync Oyster

Once you find your sweet spot, the world is your oyster. An oyster full of good vibes.

You will experience different sensations depending on whether you are receiving energy vibes or calm vibes:

Thync Energy Icon


Energy vibes will make you want to stand up and move around, your senses will feel sharper and your ability to focus will increase.

Thync Calm Icon


Calm vibes will slow your thoughts down, make you feel more centered, becoming aware of your breathing as well as feeling a pleasurable sensation running up the back of your neck.

Clean and dry the area of skin to which the Vibe Strip electrode will be applied before applying it. Use of accessories not approved by the manufacturer may cause harm or injury. Do not disassemble the module. Thync Strips should only be applied to normal, intact, healthy skin over locations as directed. Keep dry. Clean by wiping with dry cloth. Do not immerse


What are Thync strips

They’re little adhesive strips that help to gently attach the Thync device to your skin.

Tip: If your skin is clean and dry, they can be used several times.

Are there any warnings, precautions or adverse reactions

If you are in the care of a physician, consult your physician before using this device. If you are susceptible to Reflex Syncope (fainting) for example, as a result of donating blood, getting a shot or due to anxiety then please consult your physician before purchasing a Thync System.

Can't sync your Module with your mobile device?

We recommend the following steps if your Module isn’t syncing:
Force close the app and restart your Module.
Turn off the Bluetooth on your mobile device and wait a few seconds.
Turn Bluetooth back on and try to pair your Module to your mobile device again.

What is a Module, and what does it do?

The Module is a small device that’s been uniquely designed to be worn on your head for 5-20 minutes at a time to deliver neurosignaling waveforms. It’s controlled by an app on your mobile device, which lets you shift your state of mind on demand to either calm or energetic states. Thync is unique in that it uses neurosignaling to stimulate specific pathways in the brain in a non-invasive way. This approach avoids the common side effects of ingesting caffeine, stimulants, narcotics, or high-calorie foods.

What do the LEDs on my Module mean?

The following LED lights indicate what’s happening with your Module:
White LED is blinking: Module is in pairing mode
White LED is solid: Module is paired
White LED pulses on and off: Vibe is in progress
Red and white LED blinking: Firmware update is in process
Red LED is blinking: Module is about to turn off due to low battery
White LED blinks 5 times, then stops after pressing power button: Module has been turned off

What does the Thync App do?

The app is the control center where you can set up Vibes and access other options. The app communicates with your Module via Bluetooth connection.

Can I sync Thync with other fitness apps or export my usage data?

Not currently, though we may explore applications in the future.

Can I incorporate music from within the app?

Currently, you'll need to play music from another source, but this may be available soon as an add-on feature.

Where can I download the app?

Please visit the iTunes or Android store on your compatible device

How do I set up my account?

You can setup an account by downloading the Thync App and go through the account creation process. If you don't have your Module yet, you can skip the pairing step to navigate the app and account settings.

Do I need an account to run a Vibe?

Yes, you’ll need to either set up an account, or use Guest Mode on a friend’s mobile device. This is necessary for two very important reasons. By registering, you confirm that you’re over the age of 18, as Thync isn’t recommended for minors. Registering an account also means that you can instantly bypass our health advisories, which we’ve included in the app for everyone’s safety.

Is it possible to run a Calm Vibe with an Energy Strip, or vice versa?

No, the app will not run a Vibe with a mismatched Strip. This is a feature we included to ensure your safety and comfort

Can I meditate while using the Calm Vibes?

Definitely! In fact, meditation may improve your experience when running a Calm Vibe. Breathing exercises can also help. Each person has their own experience when using Thync, and you should experiment to find the best way to Vibe. Please share your stories and let us know how you #GetYourVibeOn.

Why are Vibes more effective when I focus on a mind shift?

Vibes are often most successful in situations where they are needed. Meditating during a Calm Vibe or blasting through a work assignment during an Energy Vibe can bring out the full effects of the Vibe.

How do I start a Vibe?

From they Thync app, you'll select a Vibe suited to your need at the moment – either a more energized or more relaxed state of mind. You have the ability to set different types of Vibes and pause them at any time. Once you specify which state you'd like to achieve, the Vibe is delivered via neurosignaling waveforms that target specific neural pathways. In turn, this triggers a shift in your state of mind.

App stopped running a Vibe while you were taking a call or using another app?

Just like other mobile apps, your Vibing experience can be disrupted if you have too many apps running, even in the background. Free up your phone by closing other apps, then start the Vibe again.

What happens if I take off the Module during a Vibe?

The device will shut down, and the Vibe will end. Due to the lag time between the app and the Module, holding the Module immediately after removal may cause brief discomfort. For this reason, we recommend that you completely stop any Vibes you're running before physically removing the Module from your skin.

What does it mean if the pads on the Strip are discolored after use?

The silver in the Strips is designed to change color during use to show that the Vibe is working. However, if a Strip is not silver in color, or differs from other Strips, you should NOT use this Strip. If this happens, please contact our Customer Care Team.

Can I use the Strips on other parts of my body?

No, we strongly recommend against putting the Strips anywhere other than on the mastoid (a bone behind your right ear) or at the nape of your neck, depending on the Strip being used to Vibe. In addition to the possibility of discomfort from improper placement, doing so violates the Thync Terms of Use and may cause safety or health concerns.

Can I use this on other parts of my body, or use two Modules at once?

No, we strongly recommend against using multiple Modules at once, or placing them anywhere other than above your right eyebrow. We also recommend that you only put the Strips on the mastoid (a bone behind your right ear) or at the nape of your neck, depending on the Strip being used to Vibe. In addition to the possibility of discomfort from improper placement, doing so violates the Thync Terms of Use and may cause safety or health concerns.

Can I use a Strip more than once?

We recommend that you use only one Strip per Vibing session. While you can run multiple Vibes in a session, each Strip is only guaranteed for a single session use. We also recommend that sessions last no longer than one hour per day.
