This small, online business was started by two locals residing in the FATVillage arts district. Their journey to solve one of society’s most prevalent and distressing conditions led to the creation of their hallmark product, The Shift.

The Shift is a holistic tool that teaches users to harness the power of breathing to reduce stressful triggers and physical symptoms associated with stress and anxiety. It also doubles as a beautiful piece of jewelry. It’s like two gifts in one!

Komuso’s mission to improve the lives of those dealing with stress and anxiety has taken their brand worldwide, however, they still maintain their hometown spirit and love for Fort Lauderdale.
