Somadome pods to ‘quiet the mental clutter’

Somadome, the company behind a colour therapy meditation pod, has announced plans for international growth with worldwide distribution.

The pods are designed to use colour, binaural beats and special tiles (often used by acupuncturists) to alter disruptive EMF frequencies to achieve peacefulness of mind and body.
Six Somadomes were installed in US spas last year, including at the Ojai Valley Inn, California and the Surrey Hotel, New York.

Adobe has installed the pod at its HQ in Silicon Valley and Richard Branson (above) also showcased it at Virgin Disruptor’s roundtable discussion on corporate wellness.

Founder and Somadome CEO Sarah Attia says: “The vision for Somadome is for it to be a way to quiet the mental clutter.

“The business value proposition is in selling time – not selling the dome.”

Guests pay an average of US$50 (€46, £34) per 20-minute session and Attia says most spas book between five to seven sessions a day.
