Binaural Beats & Brainwave Entrainment
The brain produces very small rhythmic electrical pulses which are called brainwave patterns. These patterns can be observed using electroencephalograph (EEG) scanning equipment. Brainwaves are measured in cycles per second (Hz) and are produced by different areas of the brain throughout the day and night.
0.5 – 4 Hz Occur during periods of deep dreamless sleep and are linked to healing, recovery and pain relief.
7 – 13 Hz are linked to creativity and the state of conscious relaxation and calmness.
13 – 40 Hz are known to be predominant during periods of concentration, activity, anxiety and arousal.
40 – 70 Hz are associated with higher mental functioning including, perception, intelligent problem solving, self awareness, compassion as well as emotional responses such as happiness and fear.
4 – 7 Hz are associated with right-brain and subconscious insightful thinking, deep relaxation and mental imagery as well as meditation and REM sleep.
