Research & Science

Everything we stand for at HARMONY 783 is grounded in science. There are now more than 20 scientific research studies substantiating that the direct connection with the earth’s surfaces can have multiple, major positive effects on our well-being. This is called grounding, also known as earthing. The scientific findings, include, but are not limited to the conditions below. These research studies are in the public domain, and people interested in learning more are encouraged to seek them out directly. 

The scientific studies all point to these key benefits of grounding:

  • Reduction of inflammation
  • Increased circulation
  • Normalization of blood pressure
  • Improved sleep
  • Reduced anxiety
  • Relief from pain
  • Return to Homeostasis (balanced well-being)


    The below published scientific studies, review articles, and commentaries can all be found HERE.
