What is Brainwave Entrainment?

Do you know why...

Some find the sound of rain calming?

Some experience sweeping calmness when they hear a church bell dong?

Some feel relaxed, energetic, and light when they hear their favorite music?


Well, the answer lies in the fact that some sounds have a positive effect on us. Brainwave entrainment, which involves use of beats of specific frequencies, works on this very principle.

In this practice, a programmed frequency of music affects the brainwaves of the listener in a certain way, inducing a particular response, such as a feeling of relaxation or a meditative state.

Brainwave entrainment is a novel concept, and millions of listeners use it worldwide. Read on to know more about it and its many benefits.

What is brainwave entrainment?

Brainwave frequencies are charted to measure the state of activity inside our brain, and it is different at different times. For instance, the brainwave frequency in the state of deep relaxation is considerably lower than when we are under stress.

Brainwave entrainment or brainwave synchronization uses external sound-based stimulus to achieve an intended mind-state. It's done by exposing the mind to sounds of the same frequency as the intended brain-state.

Why should we care about brainwave entrainment?

Our subconscious mind controls our conscious mind, not the other way around. Therefore, our reality is determined by what goes on in the deep recesses of this hidden, inaccessible mind.

Brainwave entrainment audio modules allow us access to as well as control over the inaccessible—the subconscious mind. By influencing and controlling the subconscious mind, we can change the way we think, behave, and act.

This is no small feat. Monks spend years training themselves to achieve this and yet are often unsuccessful or partially successful. Brainwave entrainment modules mimic this power, and the best part is that the whole process is simple ... you just lay back, listen and visualize.

What benefits brainwave entrainment offers?

Some of the major benefits that brainwave entrainment offers are mentioned below. All the listed benefits are backed by scientific research and testimonies of thousands of people.

  • Negative Emotions

Negative emotions affect our psychological as well as physical health. Beats can help in purging deep-rooted stress and anxiety, personal apprehensions, and even memories of childhood traumas.

In short, they have a therapeutic effect on our mind and body. Listening to these sounds regularly facilitates healing of emotional issues, allowing us to achieve more in life and enjoy it to the fullest.

  • Meditation

Meditation improves our psychological well being by reducing anxiety, stress, and depression. It also improves our memory and critical thinking. In addition, it strengthens the immune system and provides numerous other health benefits.

While meditation is extremely beneficial, it is not easy. With help of specific sound modules you can easily and quickly get into a meditative state, and enjoy the many benefits associated with it.

  • Chemical Imbalances

Chemical imbalances inside the brain cause emotional disorders like depression, anxiety, panic attacks, etc. Listening to sound waves within specific frequency range calms and relaxes the mind, triggers the production of important neurotransmitters such as endorphins and dopamine, and restores chemical balance in the brain. This has a positive psychological effect on listeners, who instantly start feeling rejuvenated and upbeat and are able to develop a greater sense of wellbeing.

  • Memory

Brainwave entrainment audio models can improve your memory, learning abilities, and concentration. Scientists believe that the deep relaxation state induced by audio modules used in this practice helps individuals to absorb, retain, and use information better. This deep relaxation state, called the alpha state, also enhances creativity.

What are different types of sound-based entrainment techniques?

There are three major sound-based techniques: binaural beats, isochronic tones, and monaural beats.

  • Binaural beats: The most-widely used and oldest technology, this method involves exposing each ear to a tone of a slightly different frequency. The human brain processes these two tones to produce a third 'apparent' tone. The frequency of the 'apparent' tone is the same as brainwave frequency of the intended mind-state, and is equal to the difference between the frequencies of the two tones fed to the ears of the listener.

  • Isochronic tones: Unlike the first method, in this only one tone is used, which is switched on and off at rapid intervals.

  • Monaural beats: This method also uses two tones, however in this method the two tones are combined before they reach a listener's ears. The frequency of the combined tone is same as the frequency of the intended mind-state.
