In a previous blog post, we talked about isochronic tones being used instead of binaural beats in brain entrainment. Remember, brain entrainment is about training the brain to produce brainwaves that will induce relaxation, healing, anxiety reduction etc by listening to sounds at particular frequencies and then producing brain waves at those frequencies for itself.
The reason the change to isochronic tones came about is because for a long time there were only binaural beats. And then scientists discovered through research that the brain gets bored with binaural beats and stops paying attention to them. Isochronic tones then made an appearance and, because they are intermittent sounds with unexpected breaks or pauses, the brain does not get bored with hearing them.
Recurrent meditation sessions with isochronic tones have a major positive psychological impact in terms of relieving stress and propagating a feeling of all-round relaxation. Moreover, concentration improves which has a holistic impact going beyond meditation sessions alone and into every-day life.
This psychological boost in turn has a significant positive impact on your ongoing wellbeing, producing a physiological boost and reducing stress and tension.
Now the good thing is that it only takes the brain 6 or 7 minutes of listening to the sound frequencies to induce it to start producing its own brainwaves at these frequencies. So you can be in a state of reduced anxiety or deeply relaxed in less than 10 minutes. Doesn’t that sound like something you could enjoy? Why not try a short Alpha meditation for yourself:
Alpha frequencies put you in a relaxed, daydreamy state.
