All Audios On This Site Use Binaural Beats For Relaxation
What Are Binaural Beats?
Using EEG (electroencephalography) technology, that measures electrical activity of the brain, it has been found that we tend to be in certain brainwave states (or frequencies) during different activities. Basically, if we are in an environment with fast paced music then we will tend to get more active. While if we are surrounded by slow music there will be a corresponding slow down in our mental activity. Of course, this is assuming you are listening to the music or its so loud that you can’t ignore it and are going with the flow.
In other words, your brain responds to external stimuli by following along. So if you hear a regular beat then the brain will follow along after a short while i.e. it will entrain itself from it’s current frequency to the one in its environment. This is called the “frequency following response”.
Scientists have discovered that you can also entrain your brain from one frequency to another using a sound technology called binaural beats. What happens is that two sounds are played at difference frequencies. One in each ear. For example 480 hrz in one ear and 490 hrz in the other. The brain perceives the difference of these two frequencies which is 10 hrz. After listening to these sounds for a while the brain begins to follow along at 10 hertz and an alpha brainwave state if achieved.
40 hertz: Gamma Waves: Active mentally, intense emotions such as anger of joy, solving problems
13 – 40 hertz: Beta Waves – Active concentration, general active lifestyle
7 – 13 hertz: Alpha Waves – Relaxed state, light meditation level, perfect for stress relief
4 – 7 hertz: Theta Waves – Deep meditation, REM sleep, dreams
0 – 3 hertz: Delta Waves – Deep dreamless sleep
All audios on this site use binaural beats set to an alpha frequency of 10 hertz for relaxation and self hypnosis.
Quotes About Hypnosis
Extract from “How Hypnosis Works” from how stuff works:
When you hear the word hypnosis, you may picture the mysterious hypnotist figure popularized in movies, comic books and television. This ominous, goateed man waves a pocket watch back and forth, guiding his subject into a semi-sleep, zombie-like state. Once hypnotized, the subject is compelled to obey, no matter how strange or immoral the request. Muttering “Yes, master,” the subject does the hypnotist’s evil bidding. This popular representation bears little resemblance to actual hypnotism, of course. In fact, modern understanding of hypnosis contradicts this conception on several key points. Subjects in a hypnotic trance are not slaves to their “masters” — they have absolute free will. And they’re not really in a semi-sleep state — they’re actually hyperattentive.
Extract About Hypnosis from WebMD
Hypnosis — or hypnotherapy — uses guided relaxation, intense concentration, and focused attention to achieve a heightened state of awareness that is sometimes called a trance. The person’s attention is so focused while in this state that anything going on around the person is temporarily blocked out or ignored. In this naturally occurring state, a person may focus his or her attention — with the help of a trained therapist — on specific thoughts or tasks.
How Does Hypnosis Work?Hypnosis is usually considered an aid to psychotherapy (counseling or therapy), because the hypnotic state allows people to explore painful thoughts, feelings, and memories they might have hidden from their conscious minds. In addition, hypnosis enables people to perceive some things differently, such as blocking an awareness of pain.
Hypnosis can be used in two ways, as suggestion therapy or for patient analysis.
- Suggestion therapy: The hypnotic state makes the person better able to respond to suggestions. Therefore, hypnotherapy can help some people change certain behaviors, such as stopping smoking or nail biting. It can also help people change perceptions and sensations, and is particularly useful in treating pain.
- Analysis: This approach uses the relaxed state to find the root cause of a disorder or symptom, such as a traumatic past event that a person has hidden in his or her unconscious memory. Once the trauma is revealed, it can be addressed in psychotherapy.
What Are the Benefits of Hypnosis? The hypnotic state allows a person to be more open to discussion and suggestion. It can improve the success of other treatments for many conditions, including:
- Phobias, fears, and anxiety
- Sleep disorders
- Post-trauma anxiety
- Grief and loss
Hypnosis also might be used to help with pain control and to overcome habits, such as smoking or overeating. It also might be helpful for people whose symptoms are severe or who need crisis management.
