Mental Massages Using Sound & Light Technology
Part of the energy healing services I offer include sound and light sessions on my Nova Pro 100 Light and Sound Machine.
I like to call these sessions "mental massages" because they do just that--massage your brainwaves to produce states of extreme relaxation, or if you prefer, states of motivation and high energy, depending on your need.
How does it work?
My Nova Pro 100 Light and Sound Machine uses binaural beats and pulsing light to entrain the brain and affect these desired states. A binaural beat happens when you play 2 sound waves that are very close in frequency (but not quite exactly the same) which causes beat frequencies between the 2 sound waves. As it turns out, if you play these 2 frequencies separately into your 2 different ears, your brain tries to resolve the difference between the 2 frequencies and “hears” the beat frequency even though it isn’t there.
The interesting thing is that these perceived beat frequencies cause your brain to do some strange things. The imaginary beat frequency manages to force your brain to start taking on the frequency of the beat frequency. People have been using this technology to modify their mood and mental state for decades now, and the science on this is well proven. If you hook up an EEG unit to your brain (which picks up brainwave frequencies), you will see the brainwaves synchronize. Some say that it works so well that you can recreate the effects of meditation, happiness, and even alertness, all without leaving the comfort of your own headphones.
How can brainwave entrainment help me?
According to the Sound & Consciousness Institute, an organization based in San Francisco, CA (and which is dedicated to studying the effects of sound on the body, psyche and spirit) there are many issues that brainwave entrainment can help with based on the type of brainwave it creates:
"Delta - .5 - 4 cycles per second - This is the frequency that your brain vibrates at when you are in deep sleep. Deep sleep is a very powerful state -- it is when we are directly connected to Source. Therefore, these frequencies can be used to help you to get to sleep and to sleep throughout the night. They can also be used to give you needed rest without having to go into complete sleep. Delta is also associated with deep meditative states so it can also be use to entrain you into a state of deep peace.
Theta - 4 - 7 cycles per second - This is the frequency your brain goes into when dreaming. This could also be daydreaming. It is actually a very creative state where people often receive downloads or other creative inspiration. Therefore, it can be used before doing any type of creative brainstorming or artistic endeavors.
Whenever, you tune into more than one thing at a time -- simultaneously -- you're brain actually goes into Theta. For example, watching sparkles on the ocean can put you into Theta as you start to see waves of light move across the water. In this state "you" disappear, and you become only the experience. This also happens when listening to more than one sound at a time as in a song. You've probably had the experience where it seems like you become the music. Again, in this state you disappear. This state where "you" disappear is the same experience reported when a person enters into oneness with everything in the Universe. Therefore, you can use multiple sounds as a portal to access this incredible and profound state of bliss. In the classes we work with this technique to help you access "oneness." This is the same state that has now become popular with "Theta healing," that many are now learning.
Theta is also a state that you go into when listening to the Shaman's drumming in Journey Work.
Alpha - 7-12 cycles per second - Alpha is relaxed attention. It is also a very creative state, particularly when problem solving intuitively versus mentally. It is very powerful state that can be extremely helpful for better concentration, and for helping with ADD and ADHD. It can also help with memory loss.
Beta - 12-20 cycles per second - Beta is our normal day to day waking consciousness, especially when doing mental processing such as studying, thinking about your schedule, figuring out anything, or reading this text. Anxiety is associated with 16-20 cycles per second.
Gamma - >30 cycles per second - Gamma shows up when in a high state of meditation.
Deep Delta - <.5 cycles per second - Deep Delta also shows up in a high state of meditation. Lower frequencies of .1 cycles per second happen when in a state of love.
Whenever, we listen to any rhythm, whether is any drum beat or rhythm in music, the breath of a purring cat, a washing machine, or the slow oscillation of a crystal bowl -- we can be entrained into a specific brainwave state associated with that rhythm.
However, when you wear headphones, you get a second benefit. When you listen to one sound in the left ear it goes to the right brain. The sound in the right ear goes to the left brain. The brain then connects the two frequency across the Corpus Callosum -- the part of the brain that normally functions to connect the two sides of the brain. When your left and right brain are synchronized this is our optimal state. We are rarely in a state of left/right brain synchronization, so it is quite incredible to be able to access this state almost immediately simply by listening to binaural beats on headphones. The ultimate goal is to find the harmonic template of health for an individual and then use it to resonate people back into their healthy state."
What does a typical Mental Massage session feel like?
I can come to your home, for your convenience.* (Please see terms of service!) You will sit in a comfortable position, either in a comfy chair or on your couch or, if you prefer, you can lay on the floor. (I do not recommend lying in bed for these sessions because it could relax you too much and you'd fall asleep.) You will wear the headphones and special light goggles. Sessions typically last between 15 and 30 minutes. Some are shorter (but never less than 8 minutes) and sometimes longer (never more than 1 hour.) The cost runs about $1 per minute and must be paid in advance. Click here for details...
