brainLight Gesellschaft für die Vermarktung von Entspannungstechniken mbH
(brainLight LLC for the Marketing of Relaxation Techniques)
Date of Foundation: October 31, 1988
Owner-Managers: Ursula Sauer, Jochen Hufgard
Since brainLight was founded in 1988, the company has distributed unique, holistic relaxation systems and has become the market leader in this field. On July 7, 2007, brainLight made a major leap forward with its proprietary relaxation system, the “brainLight-be Synchro“, which — at the touch of a button — emits synchronized light, rhythmic sound, music, and speech while also controlling a Shiatsu massage chair. This technology is unique in the world and is firmly established on the German market. The launch of the “brainLight-be Synchro“ marks the successful development of its predecessor “brainLight-Synchro“, with which each component had to be turned on individually.
In 2009, brainLight launched a deep relaxation system for commercial use, the “brainLight relaxTower“. This system, too, includes the control of a Shiatsu massage chair. The effectiveness of our products is based on the understanding that previous relaxation enhances successful studying.
The brainLight technology is regularly tested in studies, conducted by, for example, the IHK (German Chamber of Industry and Commerce) and the Schwenninger health insurance company.
In the history of brainLight’s Shiatsu massage chairs, the progress in individualized massage technology stands out. While older models used to massage acupressure points based on an average back size, the 2013 launch of the Shiatsu Massage Chair “3D FLOAT PLUS“ has introduced a bodyscan, which is activated at the beginning of all programs. Thus, the chair adjusts its massage to the individual user. The latest massage chair model “Zenesse“ — introduced to the market in 2016 — boasts a new generation of this technology, which does not only detect back length and width but also individual back contours. Now, for example, a massage along the shoulder blades is possible. Furthermore, “Zenesse“ can be operated via an app on a user’s own iOS device.
In July 2015, the brainLight department for corporate health management was initiated, offering respective services to companies and institutions. MyBGM is an innovative approach specifically for health managers and executive personnel, giving support with the integration and long-term implementation of customized corporate health solutions.
In April 2017, the brainLight Complete System “relaxTower Zenesse“ won the audience prize at the Wellness & Spa Innovation Awards — an event at which the German Wellness Association (Deutscher Wellness Verband) honors novelties and innovative ideas of the wellness and spa sector that verifiably add to a lasting increase in wellbeing and quality of life.
In 2016, brainLight won the coveted Plus X Award for the fourth time! In 2012/13, 2013/14, 2014/15, and 2016/17 the most exclusive brainLight-System at the time became “Relaxation System of the Year“, was rewarded in the categories Innovation, High Quality, Design, Functionality, as well as Ergonomics and was given the seal “Best Product of the Year“.
brainLight’s corporate health management service myBGM was included in the highscore list of the Industriepreis 2016 (German Industry Prize) in the category “Services“.
In 2016, brainLight was further recognized as “Luxury Brand of the Year“ (Luksusowa Marka Roku 2016) at one of Poland’s top brand awards.
All brainLight massage chair models in combination with audio-visual brainLight-Systems were given the quality seal of the Deutscher Seniorenlotse (German Senior Citizen Guide) in 2016. The quality seal stands for seniors-friendliness, product variety, excellent price-performance ratio, and product quality.
The brainLight “relaxTower 3D FLOAT PLUS“ came third in the category “Best Technical Spa Innovation“ at the European Health & Spa Awards 2015.
