“I like that the training sessions were short. That made it easy to incorporate into an already busy schedule and routine. My daughter and I both use Joystik and find it beneficial. When we were trialing it, she would ask me “Are we doing Joystik tonight?” My daughter, who is 11, finds it relaxing and uses it regularly (2-3x/week) and independently to help her fall asleep at night or to calm herself.”
”Joystik has been such a great add to my weekly schedule. I've used it in the mornings before I start to get ready for work. It helps me balance and be ready to start the day, even if it's at 5AM. The tools and resources are even more beneficial when the sessions are short!”
"I've tried meditation a few times before, but I had a hard time sticking with it. Joystik isn't like the other apps, rather it's easy to use and, more importantly, easy to keep using. Feeling more in control of my emotions overall is a
game-changer for me!"

What is Autogenics?Autogenics is a unique and evidence-based mind-body medicine technique that creates a relaxation response in the body. A relaxation response is the opposite of the fight or flight response. During a relaxation response, heart rate, blood pressure, and breathing all go down, while a feeling of calm goes up. Autogenics was developed to target the physical expression of stress by using a series of phrases to gain a level of control over these processes. Over the years it has advanced from a relaxation technique to a tool that optimizes performance, health and well-being. NASA and Olympic athletes harnessed autogenics to perform at their best. Autogenics takes you through a series of systematic mental exercises that target specific physiological reactions in the brain and body . Through the power of self-suggestion you are taught how to consciously and intentionally control your Autonomic Nervous System.
Is Autogenics evidence-based and well researched?Yes! Based on decades of research and clinical studies, Autogenics is one of the more well researched and evidence-based mind-body medicine techniques. Research has shown Autogenics to improve physical and emotional well-being, and even skin appearance.
Is Autogenics safe?Yes! Autogenics has been proven to be a safe technique for ages 5 and up.
What is Classical Conditioning?Classical Conditioning is a scientifically validated learning of association between two previously unrelated stimuli to change behavior (Pavlov). Pavlov proved this by ringing a bell when a dog was given its food. At first, the dog salivated because it was about to eat, but over time, just the sound of the bell caused the dog to salivate, even when no food showed up. This effect is known as conditioning and we use it here to make your training more powerful. Don’t worry, we won’t make you salivate!
How does Classical Conditioning make our Power Up feature work?With Classical Conditioning, we will train your brain to learn that a session of Joystik causes you to feel almost immediately calmer. This will give you superpowers to use with our on-demand benefit; just hit the button for the Power Up Meter. The Power Up gives you the ability to de-stress, focus, feel calmer, and improve performance in under 10 seconds! We want to put your training to work for you because let’s face it, we’ve all had life throw us curve balls and sometimes you don’t even have time to perform a simple breathing technique.
What is Passive Concentration?This is one of the most unique components of Autogenics. Passive Concentration means not thinking about what you are saying too much. For instance, in the training when we mention “your arm is heavy”, you’re not supposed to think about your arm being heavy…let your brain do what it will. Your arm might feel heavy, light, numb, cold, or no different at all. Whatever you feel is ok and your training is still working.
