Regular use of the BrainTap promotes healthy brain activity to help you change unwanted behaviors and habits, such as those contributing to excessive stress, poor sleep habits, studying, learning, anxiety and unhealthy eating habits, all while helping you feel more relaxed and attentive, energetic, and motivated to succeed.
The Science: Binaural Beats
When two different tones, separated in frequency by only a few Hertz, are introduced — one in each ear — the brain perceives a third, unique tone. Binaural beats work by creating this phantom frequency, which the brain then mimics. For example, if we play a 220 Hz carrier tone into the left ear and a 226.5 Hz carrier tone into the right ear, your brain perceives the difference between the two, which is a subtle beat frequency of 6.5 Hz, the same frequency associated with deep, meditative states. Your brain naturally follows this frequency, and you experience this deeply relaxed state.
BrainTap’s proprietary algorithms have been shown to produce a state of calm and concentration in the brain, yielding the full effect of the guided visualization, and resulting in extraordinary levels of performance that would otherwise take years of practice to achieve.
In general, the visual imagery process involves the individual setting aside a period for relaxation, during which he or she contemplates mental images depicting a desired result or goal. This exercise is done during the spoken-word sessions to help the listener envision a consistent image (either literal or symbolic) of the results desired from the session.
Visualization has been studied for decades, having been shown to have the power to affect mental states, improve physical and athletic performance and even heal the body. And when combined with the other elements of BrainTap, these effects are increased and optimized.
Another aid to the guided meditation is 10-cycle holographic music, which is a sonic technology that produces a 360-degree sound environment.
In this sonic environment, the visualizations become more real to the mind, helping the user take full advantage of the power of the visualizations by creating a more receptive learning state.
Isochronic tones are equal intensity pulses of sound separated by an interval of silence. They turn on and off rapidly, but the speed depends on the desired brain frequency. The discrete nature of isochronic tones makes them particularly easy for the brain to follow. While binaural beats rely on balanced hearing in both ears, isochronic tones work effectively for nearly everyone, except for someone with complete hearing loss. This is one of the reasons BrainTap’s proprietary algorithms incorporate both types of tones.
