Bumble BLS is an innovative new bilateral stimulation system designed for therapists to use with their clients during sessions, as well as for people of all ages to use for stress relief and emotional regulation at home. We are offering a line of BLS Buzzies and if we surpass our "stretch goals" we will add options for a EMDR light bar and Buzzies that can be remotely operated.

The story of Bumble BLS begins with Registered Play Therapist Lauren Stockly. Lauren saw firsthand the powerful positive benefits her clients received from bilateral stimulation, a technique that naturally calms the nervous system by introducing vibrations to the right and left sides of the body in an alternating rhythm. The app can control the speed, length of the pause between pulses, the duration of the pulse and the intensity. But she wanted a product that her young clients could easily use during play therapy without being inhibited by wires—something durable enough for kids, convenient enough for parents and compact enough for anyone wanting to try bilateral stimulation at home, work or school. Lauren set out to create this product, combining her insights as a therapist with leading-edge technology and decades of neuroscience research. Whether you are an EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) therapist, a play therapist, the parent of a child who struggles emotionally or someone looking to manage stress, Bumble BLS products are here to help.
Buzzies for EMDR: Designed with EMDR therapists in mind, Bumble BLS products offer durable construction, wireless performance and both manual and Bluetooth control. EMDR clients can wear Buzzies on the included wristbands, or remove them for handheld bilateral stimulation. Buzzies are easy to sanitize, and can be operated at a distance during in-person sessions. Clients can also use them at home—along with Bumble BLS in-app visuals—during teletherapy. If this project exceeds its goal times eight, it will unlock a “stretch goal” for an upgraded model that therapists can control remotely (if this perk is "unlocked" you will be given the option to pay extra to upgrade to the remote-operated version).
Buzzies for Therapy & Play Therapy: In non-EMDR sessions, Buzzies can help clients regulate their emotions as they explore their windows of tolerance. Clients can also use Buzzies at home for resourcing or to help regulate the nervous system as a coping tool. With their wireless design, sand- and water-proof construction, and easy-to-clean material, Bumble BLS Buzzies are especially great for play therapists. Children can keep them in their pockets during play therapy sessions to help them stay grounded as they process, or use them with our fun ladybug-shaped plush cases.
Buzzies at Home: Whether you are managing your own stress, or using them with your children during tantrums, bilateral stimulation with Buzzies promote emotional regulation. Buzzies offer unmatched convenience and versatility. Wear them on the included wristbands, or detach and stash them in your pockets or socks. Plus, Buzzies can mount to any universal 18mm watch band. However you use them, Buzzies will be you and your family’s new go-to solution for natural calming.
Bilateral stimulation is a powerful and 100 percent natural way to calm the nervous system and slow the release of the stress hormone cortisol. Tactile bilateral stimulation is done by introducing gentle vibrations to the left and right sides of the body in an alternating rhythm, which soothes the body’s fight or flight response, lessening the symptoms of anxiety and opening the brain to enhanced focus and therapeutic progress. This concept forms the basis of Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), the world’s leading trauma therapy, which utilizes bilateral stimulation to help clients reprocess traumatic memories.
You don’t need to be in a therapy session to benefit from bilateral stimulation. Whether you are managing your own stress, or using them with your children during tantrums or other emotional struggles, bilateral stimulation with Buzzies is an effective way to promote a natural sense of calm. Buzzies can be used preventatively, in response to anxiety, or to help kids manage their feelings. The bilateral stimulation offered by Buzzies has also been shown to support emotional regulation and mitigate sensory sensitivity in people with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). Whether you plan to use bilateral stimulation with your children or on your own, Buzzies offer unmatched convenience and versatility. Wear them on the included wristbands, or detach and stash them in your pockets or socks. Plus, Buzzies can mount to any universal 18mm watch band. However you use them, Buzzies will be you and your family
