Strobe Therapy regulates your brainwave by the rhythm of blinks of lights and leads you to a deeply relaxed state. If you use it when you go to bed, you can expect a good sound sleep. You can also expect it to reduce stress and to improve cognitive function.
It's easy to use the app. Just press a button, then the LED light of your phone will start blinking at high speed. Let the strobe lights hit your eyebrow center after you have closed your eyes. That is all.
It is highly effective for relaxation. Take the shower of the strobe lights without moving your body. While your eyes remain closed, you will start to see various things such as colorful geometric patterns, psychedelic mandalas, beautiful natural scenery, etc. As you relax deeply, what you can see will change. Just be aware of what you can see. It will naturally lead you to a deeply relaxed state.
You can't fully relax while you are holding a device in your hand, so it would be good to lie on your back and place the phone directly on your forehead. If the leak of the light disturbs your neighbors, cover it with a thick towel or something.
It's rare but, depending on your constitution, there may be danger of inducing photosensitive epilepsy. Please use this app at your own risk. If you are oversensitive to light, refrain from using this app. Besides that, excessive prolonged use of the app may induce side effects such as dizziness. Please take responsibility for adjusting your exposure time to the light.
You might think that you will be awakened by being showered with the strobe lights before you go to bed. But actually, it is mysteriously effective in making you relaxed. And somehow it seems to be good for eye fatigue too.
Those who are insomnia, those who tend to think too much, those who do intellectual work right before they sleep, those who are restless and can't calm down, must try this app. Before the emergence of Strobe Therapy, this experience has been possible only by using a very expensive dedicated machine for meditation and therapy.
Ajina Light, created by Guy Harriman, is one of those dedicated machines (https://ajnalight.com). It is an excellent machine with much brighter lights than smartphones. But a problem with Ajina Light is its price. It costs 5555 US dollars! So it is not something that average people can buy and be able to use before going to sleep.
Strobe Therapy is not only inexpensive. It has unique features that those dedicated machines do not have. In particular, the function that repeats multiple sets while placing break times is distinctive with this app. It is highly effective in relaxation.
The mysterious effects of flickering lights have long been known. Ptolemy, an ancient Roman scientist, generated flickering with sunlight and a spinning wheel. He noticed that a feeling of euphoria could be experienced by that. Modern French psychologist Pierre Janet used it to relieve hysteria. Aldous Huxley, the author of The Door of Perception, noted that flickering lights have a similar effect to hallucinogens such as LSD and Mescaline.
Several scientific studies have revealed that brainwaves can be controlled by the frequency of strobe lights. In 2016, Nature published a scientific paper that shows amyloid β, a hallmark of Alzheimer's disease, can be removed from the brain of mice by strobe lights.

5 stars to me all the way
I’m surprised at the low rating of this app, as I’ve found it to be 5 stars based on its numerous features / settings, and the next level experiences I’ve been having using it paired with binaural beats. I have recommended this app to a few friends that have all felt the same.
Bought this on a whim looking specifically for brain wave entrainment strobe apps, paid the $3.99 and The functionality is straightforward. First strobe experience, but fairly decent mood enhancement and straightforward functions. No complaints!
I paid the three dollars or whatever so I could set the playing duration longer that the one minute and some seconds allowed and after paying setting duration was still not allowed.
Keep the app up to date or get rid of blocking duration time and make it free.
I hope to be able to contact Apple to get my money back.
It’s useless if you can only run it for under two minutes.
