What is Brainwave Therapy?
Brainwave Therapy is a safe and natural approach to healing and self-improvement. It has been used by millions of people to reduce symptoms of depression and anxiety, improve sleep, enhance the effects of meditation, and promote feelings of relaxation, tranquility, and inner peace.
Our Brainwave Therapy audios utilize binaural beat frequencies, coupled with relaxing music and sounds of nature. These frequencies, which may or may not be perceptible to your hearing, work to synchronize the two hemispheres of your brain and restore the natural balance of your mind and body. Widely used by professional athletes and corporate executives, Brainwave Therapy has been highly cited in neuroscience research as a powerful tool to achieve peak performance.
What are Brainwaves?
Brainwaves are the natural internal (biological, neurochemical) rhythms of the brain.
Brainwave patterns change with activities such as relaxing, problem-solving, and sleeping. At any given time, one of these patterns will be dominant, although it is possible for different areas of your brain to be in engaged in different levels of activity.
There are four primary brainwave patterns (Beta, Alpha, Theta, and Delta) and a fifth, lesser known pattern (Gamma):
Beta brainwaves are associated with a heightened state of alertness, focused concentration, critical thinking, decision making, and problem solving. When you are engaged in mental activities, your dominant brainwave state will be Beta, and it is common for individuals to spend the majority of the workday producing Beta brainwaves. In the Beta state, neurons fire rapidly in the brain, contributing to peak performance. Athletes, corporate executives, powerful negotiators, and high achieving students produce Beta brainwaves when they are performing to their greatest potential. Beta brainwave states correspond to frequencies ranging from 12 Hz to 40 Hz. If you are interested in increasing your attention, concentration, and productivity, choose one of my Beta brainwave pattern audios.
Alpha brainwaves are slower in frequency than Beta brainwaves and take place during relaxation, contemplation, and visualization. The Alpha state is an intensely pleasurable and peaceful state of consciousness. Alpha brainwaves are associated with deep levels of creativity, insight, and inspiration. Artists, musicians, and athletes produce an abundance of alpha brainwaves, which are associated with peak performance. Alpha brainwaves are integral in reducing Cortisol levels, decreasing the negative effects of stress, and improving your immune system. Alpha brainwave states correspond to frequencies ranging between 8 Hz to 12 Hz. If you seek to increase creativity, achieve peak performance, and promote a state of relaxed awareness, choose one of my Alpha brainwave pattern audios.
Theta brainwaves are even slower in frequency and are found during deep levels of relaxation, meditation, hypnosis, and enhanced creativity. They are also found during the transition from wakefulness to sleep and sometimes during dreaming. Spending increased amounts of time in a Theta state can significantly improve your well-being and overall health, and result in a reduced need for sleep. In the Theta state, your mind is in tune with the vibrational energy of the earth’s core. In the Theta state, you can easily access your inner power and achieve heightened levels of consciousness. The Theta state is the brainwave pattern I utilize when practicing clinical hypnosis with my patients, as the mind is most receptive to hypnotic suggestions while in the Theta state. Theta brainwave patterns range in frequencies from 4 Hz to 8Hz. If you seek to benefit from hypnotic suggestions and achieve deep levels of relaxation associated with peace and tranquility, select my Theta brainwave pattern audios.
Delta brainwaves are the slowest of the brainwave frequencies and are found during deep, dreamless sleep, although they may also be achieved in deep levels of meditation. Delta waves are associated with deep levels of relaxation, optimal physical healing, and a slowing of the aging process. Delta brainwaves correspond to frequencies ranging from 0 Hz to 4 Hz. If you are seeking to achieve deep, restorative sleep, and the deepest level of relaxation associated with physical healing and a slowing of the aging process, select my Delta brainwave pattern audios.
Gamma brainwave patterns are the most rapid in frequency and receive the least attention in research. Gamma waves are associated with bursts of insight, high-level information processing, and the highest state of focus possible. They also clear mental fog and boost energy. Gamma waves have been known to aid in increasing hand-eye coordination, and are ideal for improving your golf game or other athletic performance. Gamma brainwaves correspond to frequencies of 40 Hz or higher. If you seek to increase the performance and enjoyment of your cardio workout, improve clarity and perception, or boost your mood, Gamma brainwave pattern audios are your choice. Coming soon!
How Does Hypnosis Work?
Brainwave Technologies offers a collection of nature audios and hypnosis audios. Hypnosis is a state of concentration and focused awareness that allows you to more powerfully utilize the immense capacity of your mind.
Through hypnosis, you do not lose control or consciousness; rather, you willingly enter a state of inner absorption which enables you to more readily access your full potential. Learning self-hypnosis is the ultimate act of self-control. When you emerge from hypnosis, you easily and naturally return to a wakeful state.
Endorsed by the American Psychological Association, hypnosis is widely recognized to be an effective treatment for numerous psychological disorders including anxiety, depression, phobias, and trauma, as well as physical conditions such as insomnia, chronic pain, weight loss, and smoking cessation. Hypnosis has been successfully utilized to reduce pain associated with migraines, arthritis, and child birth.
