Scientifically proven and completely drug-free, Kodobio Sensory Therapy uses light and smell stimuli in a carefully modulated cycle to achieve profound psychological and physiological benefits.
Combining the benefits of light therapy with the results of many years of research into the effect of smell on the brain and body, KST uses different treatments to relieve anxiety and tension or to lift mood and alleviate depression.
With benefits similar to mindfulness and meditation without having to train or learn a technique, simply sit or lie in a comfortable position with the Kodobio placed in front of your face while you relax and absorb the gentle healing light and smell stimuli for 15-30 minutes.
Use KST as often as you need. With a range of options you simply choose one to suit your mood or the time of day, for example use the "Energise" programme in the morning and the "Unwind" programme in the evening. We hope it will help to transform your life as you discover its simplicity and effectiveness.

Kodobio Sensory Therapy
has been scientifically shown to cause a physiological relaxation.
Kodobio Sensory Therapy
has been scientifically shown to lower blood pressure and reduce heart rate.
In scientific tests, the activity of the brain was altered to show a reduction in anxiety and depression after Kodobio Sensory Therapy.
Scientific psychological testing shows a decrease in negative mood factors after Kodobio Sensory Therapy.
Kodobio Sensory Therapy is not to be confused with aromatherapy and other complementary medicine. It has been developed over several years of research into the effects of smell by Tim Jacob, Professor of Cell Physiology at Cardiff University. His ground breaking therapy is evidence based and scientifically tested.
LIGHT USED BY THE KODOBIO
The benefits of light therapy have long been accepted in main stream medicine.
The light used is full spectrum bright white light equivalent to sunlight in the middle of the day. It is the same type of bright light stimulation used by SAD lights, however in the Kodobio it is fluctuated up and down on a 60 second cycle so as to maintain varied brain stimulation during the treatment to deliver its positive psychological and physiological benefits.
A very efficient LED light panel delivers the correct luminance to the user’s field of view.
The brightness has been measured to be 10,000 lux at 30cm.
The finely tuned combination of the light and smell stimuli in fluctuating cycles within each treatment option delivers a completely natural, non-invasive and drug-free therapy for greater wellness.
The effect on psychological state was measured and determined with the universally accepted Profile of Mood States (POMS) self-assessment questionnaire which assesses mood in six dimensions: Tension-Anxiety, Depression-Dejection, Anger-Hostility, Vigor-Activity, Fatigue-Inertia and Confusion-Bewilderment. In extensive testing using the Kodobio for 15 minutes we found that the selected aromas showed a positive change.
BLOOD PRESSURE AND HEART RATE
The Kodobio has a relaxing effect. This has been demonstrated by measuring blood pressure and heart rate before and after 15 minutes use. The figure below illustrates the lowering of blood pressure and reduction of heart rate that occurs with the selected treatment. (See the table to the right)
Skin conductance is a physiological measure of arousal or nervousness and is often used as an objective measure of psychological stress. In extensive tests, a 15 min stimulus cycle with the Kodobio using the selected treatment caused a significant 23% reduction in skin conductance (see Figure below). Skin conductance returned to normal values after Kodobio Sensory Therapy. (See the table to the right)
