How the Sound Can Benefit You:
- This sound rhythm has been shown to increase a brain rhythm for relaxing and mental flexibility used in creative problem solving and memory recall.
- It can be used before going to sleep to help fall asleep faster and deeper.
- In a group of pre-surgery hospital patients that listened to this sound, their anxiety was lowered by 86% more than a group that didn’t listen to the sounds, and 58% more than a group that listened to music. It has also been shown to lower pain in people living with daily, chronic pain by 77% in university research.
How to Use:
- Please only listen to it up to 2 times a day unless your doctor approves of it, and take a half-hour break without listening between sessions. If you feel “spacy” or foggy from listening to it, take a break for 2-3 days and try it once a day or one or two times a week. It is up to you to find the right amount for you.
- You can listen to it while working, watching shows, reading, relaxing, or as a background sound to other things. Listening to it by itself will have more of an effect.
- It helps to try and learn the rhythm like you learn a music rhythm, so you can remember how to make it on your own later without listening.
- Please only listen for up to 5 days a week with at least two days off (unless you need to listen for chronic pain). The breaks let you sense how much you need to practice and practice on your own.
- Please only listen if it feels helpful and if the sound description fits your needs. When you listen, you agree to be responsible for how much you listen. You can start with 30 minute listening sessions in the first week to see how well it works for you.
- Please only listen while sitting, or lying down in a safe place. Please don’t listen while operating machinery, anything dangerous, or driving. Also, please only listen while sober.
- If you have a history of seizures or are sensitive to flashing lights, please try the Attention or Focus sound instead of this sound (unless your neurologist says that increasing “Theta” EEG rhythms is ok for you with sounds). The focus and attention sound lower general stress by increasing resiliency. This sound is like the light rhythms in some video games that warn people who are sensitive to flickering light to not use them.
- Please use headphones when you are listening where other people can hear the sounds, unless they want to use the same sounds.
