Easy as 1, 2, 3!

1. Inhale

Tap the touch-sensitive surface once for the 8-minute mode, twice for the 20-minute mode. A blue light appears on the ceiling. Gently synchronize your breathing: Inhale when the light expands...

2. Exhale

...then exhale when the light retracts. You may notice that the exhalation is deliberately longer. This will help create a sensation of tiredness which is conductive to falling asleep.

3. Sleep

At the end of the exercise (8 minutes or 20 minutes) Dodow switches itself off. You'll be in the ideal body state to fall asleep naturally, in whatever position you like.

Your questions


Why do I need Dodow?

Unless you have received special training, like Air Force fighter pilots, this cardiac coherence exercise is very difficult to do without a breathing guide! Giving Caesar his due, the breathing exercises of Sophrology are themselves inspired by Yoga Pranayama. Here are the 4 reasons why Dodow is not just a simple Sophrology breathing exercise:
1. Dodow indicates an optimal pace for you: 6 breaths per minute to put you in a state of rest and to rebalance your autonomic nervous system. Every breath out is 50% longer than the breath in to tire you out. Trying to follow your own breathing independently forces you to think and to count, which causes performance anxiety, thereby significantly delaying sleep.
2. The attention span of a person not used to meditating is thirty seconds at most, so you can very quickly become lost in your thoughts and forget to do the breathing exercise. Dodow's light signal keeps you on track!
3. Synchronizing one's breathing with a slow and steady light pulse has a hypnotic effect, similar to watching a pendulum that helps you unwind quickly
4. Dodow helps you simmer down and calm the flow of your thoughts by keeping your attention focused on an external point (the light signal), without your having to concentrate on your breathing - the emphasis is paradoxically placed on keeping you awake.
We have no doubt as to the effectiveness of simple breathing exercises, but are less confident about the ability of our users to do them on their own ;).

Will Dodow disturb the person lying next to me?

No. If the person's eyes are closed, they will not be disturbed; if they do the exercise with you, they will fall asleep very quickly.

Why blue light?

The color blue was chosen after much testing, based on the generally accepted perception that blue is calming. Blue light in high doses can help wake you up by inhibiting melatonin secretion, but Dodow does not. Being projected on the ceiling, the light signal, at its maximum intensity and for someone who is lying in bed, has a very low intensity (less than 1 lux), compared with the relatively strong intensity of a computer or television screen (about 60 lux at a distance of 50cm). In addition, the exposure time (between 8 and 20 minutes) is low. Dodow's impact on the circadian rhythm is therefore almost zero or, in any case, far too low to delay falling asleep and counteract the positive effects described above. The luminous halo is, therefore, in fact, more similar to color than to light.

Does Dodow also work for jet lag?

Dodow works great for jet lag or irregular sleep phases. Dodow is also used by Air France flight staff, with whom we have entered into a partnership. They have 50,000 cabin crew members traveling around the world.

I am really stressed, can Dodow help me?

Yes, by breathing long enough in Dodow's rhythm (6 breaths per minute), you will stimulate the baroreflex, a small physiological mechanism that helps restore balance to the autonomic nervous system. Thus, you will quickly go from a state of alertness (activation of the sympathetic nervous system) to a resting state (activation of the parasympathetic nervous system), the same state you are in during digestion: slightly sleepy. In this state, you will be much less sensitive to your stress, your metabolism will be slowed down, the secretion of neurotransmitters that kept you awake should have been stopped, and sleep will be very close. On the other hand, by focusing on the halo projected by Dodow on the ceiling, you will be distracted from your thoughts. Some people try to ”force” sleep: by trying to fall asleep at all costs, they create stress that prevents them from falling asleep. By keeping your eyes open to follow the light pulse, you no longer try to fall asleep, and, paradoxically, you increase your chances of falling asleep. In psychology this is called paradoxical intent, scientific studies have shown its utility in treating sleep onset disorders.

Can Dodow help me fall back to sleep if I wake up in the middle of the night?

Yes, you just need to touch the surface of the Dodow to turn it back on, just like you do when you want to fall asleep. The routine is the same as at the beginning of the night. Synchronizing your breathing with the luminous halo, which pulses in a slow and regular rhythm, has a hypnotic effect (the phenomenon is similar to that of looking at a pendulum). So after a few minutes, you will be able to unwind and fall asleep.

Is Dodow suitable for children and the elderly?

Yes, we have plenty of testimonials on this (we encourage you to browse through them). The breathing routine proposed by Dodow is very simple and should be done gradually and calmly. Dodow is particularly well suited for people who are afraid of the dark (numerous in children and the elderly). Dodow can be used from the age of 6.

How quickly would Dodow allow me to fall asleep?

Results may vary depending on individuals, but most people will fall asleep easily within the first 20 minutes, while many do fall asleep even before the end of the 8-minute cycle. Our users tell us they fall asleep 2.5 times faster (on average) thanks to Dodow. And, please remember, the more you use Dodow, the better results you can expect - or it is even possible not to need it any longer -.

What if Dodow doesn't work for me? :(

You have 100 days to test Dodow, we will refund your money if you are not satisfied.

Will Dodow turn off by itself?

Yes, of course, Dodow will turn off by itself at the end of your 8-minute or 20-minute routine, depending on your choice.

Saved from insomnia

This product is AWESOME! I am (or was) a notoriously bad sleeper - having used this for a couple of weeks, I've retrained my body to be able to go to sleep quicker and stay asleep. On the occasions where I wake up during the night I find it easier to fall back asleep - but if I have difficultyI use my DODOW again for a few and voila! I'm sleeping again! I recommend it for EVERYONE who has sleep issues!

It is the greatest product. I no longer need sleeping pills.
FL Flannery, Lori August 15, 2019
I was 99% certain there was no way this product was going to work but the 1% chance that it MIGHT won. I still don't understand how in the heck it works but it does. The weirdest thing is, now I can even fall asleep WITHOUT it most nights!!!
DA Davison February 17, 2019
I love it! I never knew when I woul fall asleep. some times it took all night. I was sceptical about this product but not anymore. It works fabulously if you follow all the directions I cannot thank you enough!
TJ Teresa Jacobs December 30, 2023
The week before I received my Dodow, I had two nights where I didnt get to sleep till 4am. The first night after receiving DoDow I fell asleep within 5 minutes. I could not believe it ! The next night the same thing ! Dodow really works for me. Love it ! Thank you....well worth the cost!!
ME Mei May 24, 2022
I am a therapist. I had my client tried this product for over a month who had chronic terminal insomnia (not able to go back to sleep once waking up at night). The client found that during this time she managed go back to sleep almost every night after waking up which she usually not able to. The first 2 nights she didn't follow the instructions exactly so used the wrong mode of the light, but after she found out the correct mode (the one supposed to have dim rhythm) she found she is able to break her bad sleeping patterns. It's important to follow the instructions precisely when using this product.

Created by insomniacs

The danger of sleeping pills led Alex, a chronic insomniac, to look for other ways to fall asleep. He discovered that the control of breathing is at the heart of practices such as meditation, yoga, Sophrology and cardiac coherence.

Numerous studies have shown that breathing is ultimately one of the best tools for regulating stress and mental restlessness! Long months of meditation practice have definitively solved his problems.

Accompanied by industrial designers Pierre and Gui, Alex wondered how to help the 8 million French insomniacs succeed in falling asleep faster thanks to breathing, without having to train during long months. After 2 years of research and numerous prototypes, Dodow was born.
