If you are new to the concept of binaural beat brainwave entrainment, read on and I will explain the power of this incredible technology and how it is used.
Brainwave entrainment is produced by listening to two slightly different tones through headphones (so that the audio frequencies go to the appropriate ear). It can take up to about 5 minutes of exposure to the binaural beats for the human brain to begin following the frequency of the beats. This means that if you are listening to a 3 Hz Delta binaural beat encoded recording, your Delta brainwaves will become stronger. Since Delta brainwaves are associated with sleep, you should become drowsy as your brain “follows” or becomes “entrained” with the binaural beats.
Other frequencies can produce different effects. There is a table below that shows some of the uses for different frequencies. Remember to use headphones for the binaural beat effect!
Useful Frequencies for Binaural Beats (Brainwave Entrainment)
Delta (1 – 3 Hz) brainwave tracks to relieve insomnia, improve sleep or for deep meditation. Also works well for a “Power Nap”!
Theta (4 -7 Hz) brainwave tracks to induce relaxation, lower stress and to help bring “focus” to your life. The best frequency range for most levels of meditation.
Alpha (8 -12 Hz) brainwave tracks are great for increasing your creative abilities, lowering anxiety, improving your memory and enhancing your concentration!
Beta (13 – 40 Hz) binaural beat encoded audio is great for alertness and increased cognitive abilities.
