Relaxation App for iPhone released by couple (Dr of Psychology and Composer); Relax with Dr Elaine Ryan reached Number 1 App on Irish Medical iPad Store on first day

  (August 01, 2011)

Dublin, Ireland (PRWEB) August 01, 2011

What makes Relax with Dr Elaine Ryan different from other relaxation iPhone/iPad Apps, is that it was developed by a Doctor of Psychology, using years of experience and expert psychological knowledge, on how the brain and body works. Elaine was aware of the benefits that the average person would experience from undertaking deep relaxation. She was also aware that, due to the normal demands of every day life, that it was common for people to want to undertake relaxation, but struggled to fit it into their already busy day. Elaine wanted to be able to provide deep relaxation in a form that would fit into peoples already busy lives. LiveHappy was founded to meet this need by Elaine (a psychologist with her own practice) and her partner Lewis (a classically trained musician), to create Personal Development Apps that they would like to use themselves.

One year ago Lewis embraced this challenge and embarked on learning how to develop Apps for iPhone and iPad. The result is Relax with Dr Elaine Ryan, which debuted at number one on the Irish iPad Medical store. It was important to the couple that they could oversee each stage of the development and so, they learnt to do everything that was required to develop an App. All programming, audio, photography and design was undertaken by Lewis.

Relax with Dr Elaine Ryan was designed to meet the needs of everyday people, taking into account their busy schedule. Almost everyone is aware of the need to relax, but due to the demands placed on the average person, proper deep relaxation is difficult to achieve. The benefits of deep relaxation (which is different from normal chill out activities, such as watching TV) include;

Slowing of the heart rate
Reducing blood pressure
Increased blood flow to the muscles
Decreased muscle tension
More energy, and
Better quality sleep

These benefits can be achieved by regular deep relaxation and LiveHappys relaxation App provides this in a program that can be carried around in peoples pocket or bag in the form of an iPhone or iPad App. The user only has to listen to the App to begin their own personalized deep relaxation program. Relax with Dr Elaine Ryan is designed to induce deep relaxation and for ease of use. As everyone is different and has their own personal tastes, their relaxation App can be fully customized to everyones' preference.

Customization options include:
Choice of two guided relaxation programs, each with specifically scored music
Choice of four time lapse photographic animations
Choice of four nature sounds that were recorded specifically to suit this App

LiveHappy is a small, personal company that relies on user involvement with both Lewis and Elaine in order that they continue to provide users with what they need. They will be releasing three Apps during the summer: Sleep, Weight Loss and Confidence Building. Elaine has a Facebook page to keep in personal contact with users. Her Facebook page is
