10+ years of research
The story of our company, Thync, started in 2011 with a powerful founding team of neuroscientists, engineers, and entrepreneurs. After years of research, our team showed that we could use non-invasive brain stimulation to produce a positive effect on the autonomic nervous system. Detailed research across thousands of subjects and over one thousand neurostimulation programs proved that we are on the right path.
Since then, we successfully brought to market our 1st and 2nd generation products: Thync Edition 1 and Relax Pro.
What we realized is that neurostimulation has to be easy-to-use in order to truly help people. Our scientists and engineers worked hard to achieve this goal and came up with the FeelZing Energy Patch — a device that showed significant results in improving people’s energy and focus levels, and was a simple way to deliver our benefits to our customers.
How it works
FeelZing uses a form of neurostimulation called transcutaneous peripheral nerve stimulation (tPNS)

“We discovered that patterned, high frequency, high amplitude electrical stimulation via the cranial nerves is the most effective and comfortable way to increase your focus and alertness”
Autonomic nervous system balance
FeelZing works by sending a patterned electric waveform to the nerves of the autonomic nervous system, creating the optimal state for productivity: calm alertness.
For this optimal state, we need our autonomic nervous system to up-regulate and balance our sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems.
Without ANS balance, we’re cracked out or lethargic
The sympathetic nervous system (colloquially: “fight or flight”) creates alertness and action by increasing heart rate, respiration, and releasing adrenaline.
With too much activity in the sympathetic nervous system, we feel stressed, agitated, and anxious.
The parasympathetic nervous system (colloquially: “rest and digest”) creates calm and recovery by slowing heart rate, respiration, and triggering functions like digestion.
With too much activity in the parasympathetic nervous system, we feel lethargic and apathetic.
FeelZing restores balance so you can be productive
Based on the literature of peripheral nerve stimulation, Thync’s scientists developed a unique high-frequency and high-amplitude waveform to most effectively stimulate nerves connected to your autonomic nervous system.
The FeelZing patch is placed behind the ear on the mastoid. This area contains important nerve connections to the sympathetic nervous system (i.e. greater auricular and lesser occipital nerves) and parasympathetic nervous system (i.e. the vagus nerve).
Stimulation of these nerves together creates an optimal state of balance in the autonomic nervous system, resulting in a calm, energized state — without jitters or anxiety.

FeelZing increased energy for 84% of users
In a double-blind, placebo controlled study, 84% of subjects reported a moderate or strong increase in energy levels when using FeelZing.
Customers claimed a positive effect on their mental health
In a 2019 survey, the following benefits were mentioned by 90% of patches users: greater alertness, attentiveness, and focus, increased motivation and productivity, and reduced mental and physical fatigue.
