What is Brainwave Entrainment


What is a brainwave?

"rapid fluctuations of voltage between parts of the brain".

Each human brain has a great deal of charges of electricity that fire from one part to another simultaneously. These charges are also known as brainwaves.

Brainwave Ranges

  Brainwaves are usually divided into 5 different ranges that a human brain experiences. Each range is associated with different mental states. The five popular brainwave ranges are listed below...

- Delta Range - 0.5 to 4 HZ  - deep sleep
- Theta Range - 4 HZ to 8 HZ - dreaming sleep,  daydreaming and using imagination
- Alpha Range - 8 to 13 HZ - relaxed but awake
- Beta Range - 13 HZ to 30 HZ - usual awake state/aware
- Gamma Range - 30 HZ  to 60 HZ - linked to consciousness

There are also high and low beta, Theta1 and Theta2, Epsilon, Lambda & Sigma. Although these are not as commonly used, and so are not as of great importance to us.

Brainwave Entrainment

 So we know that the brain experinces these electrical waves at different frequencies, and that different groups of these frequencies mean different states of consciousness. So what is brainwave entrainment? The answer is by using stimulii such as light, sound, or electro-magnetic fields to influence the speed of our brainwaves, which in turn affects our mental condition at the time.

Acclaimed Benefits

The use of brainwave entrainment frequencies has in theory been medically proven to increase our own levels in Serotonic (helps with depression), Norephenephrin (a vaso-constrictor) and Bete-Endorphins (helps relieve pain). However, please consult your doctor with any real medical issues, as this site is NOT for medical information!
