Headspace prides itself on sharing meditation with people in a way that's simple and accessible, but it is now looking to the future of the practice with Headspace Health.
Aside from the relaxing, therapeutic effects that can be enjoyed from meditation, the scientific benefits of the practice are also well-documented. In fact, Headspace notes that "meditation has been shown to help people stress less, focus more and even sleep better." Headspace Health is set to be introduced in 2020 as the world's first prescription meditation app with FDA-cleared, clinically validated programs.
The meditation programs that will be offered on Headspace Health are set to target a range of chronic diseases, as the practice has the potential to positively impact those suffering from a poor quality sleep and troubles with asthma to cancer.
