Discover the Science of Relaxation
with DreamCast Fire Pits

Celebrate

the Magic of Fire

Picture this: You’re nestled in front of your very own DreamCast concrete gas fire pit, watching the flames perform their mesmerizing dance as the soothing sound of crackling logs fills the air. The warmth envelopes you, and the stresses of the day seem to melt away. But did you know that there’s scientific evidence to support the incredible benefits of this age-old tradition?

The Science 

Behind Relaxation

Recent research conducted by the University of Alabama has unveiled the remarkable connection between fire and relaxation. Watching a fire not only evokes a sense of tranquility but also has tangible effects on your overall well-being. It’s no coincidence that we find this experience so enjoyable – it’s deeply rooted in our evolutionary history.

In a groundbreaking study led by anthropologist Christopher Lynn, 226 adults were invited to watch a video of a fireplace, and their blood pressure was measured both before and after the viewing. They were also asked to share their feelings and experiences during their fire-gazing sessions.

and Wellness

The results were nothing short of astounding. Participants who watched the fire with its gentle crackling sounds experienced, on average, a five percent decrease in their blood pressure. As they continued to watch the fire, their relaxation deepened. In contrast, those who watched a silent fire or an inverted image of flames experienced an increase in blood pressure.

So, what’s the science behind this phenomenon? It’s all about our senses becoming absorbed in the experience. When you’re near a fire, you’re not just seeing the flames; you’re also hearing the comforting sounds, feeling the warmth, and even enjoying the subtle scent of burning wood. This multisensory engagement creates a calming focus of attention that has been proven to reduce anxiety.

In fact, our affinity for fire dates back to prehistoric times. Our ancestors likely gathered around fires, and this had a profound impact on their social cohesion. The warmth, light, and safety that fires provided made them a hub for socialization, cooperation, and survival. Archaeological evidence even suggests that humans may have used fire long before they learned how to create it.
