Flowly combines interactive experiences and biofeedback to teach users to manage pain, anxiety, stress, and sleep. Flowly uses either the users phone or an optional heart rate sensor to show users the effect of relaxation exercises in real time while immersed in a calming virtual reality experience. Users can access Flowly through their phone or with an optional virtual reality headset (with Pro subscription). Each session is about 10-15 minutes long. The app also includes an in-app community to connect with other Flowly users and health coaches, as well as a data portal to measure and track physiological, survey, and journal data. Flowly offers 4 subscriptions: Flowly Basic Monthly ($9.99/month), Flowly Basic Yearly ($59.99/year), Flowly Pro Monthly ($29.99/month), or Flowly Pro Yearly ($179.99/year).
