Brainwaves are the electromagnetic waves produced by activity in the brain. The frequency of these waves is measured in cycles per second, or hertz (Hz). Brain-mapping research shows that each of our states of consciousness is associated with a specific pattern of brainwave activity. Brainwaves fall into five classes: Beta (30–13 Hz) is associated with ordinary consciousness and focused awareness; alpha (13–8 Hz) with relaxation and meditative calm; theta (8–3.5 Hz) with creativity, insight, and meditation; gamma (30–85 Hz) with advanced meditation; and delta (3.5–0.5 Hz) with restful sleep.
Dr. Jeffrey Thompson has spent 25 years developing audio processes to help his patients enhance their well-being. His clinical research with thousands of patients and volunteers has led to groundbreaking discoveries in how sound frequency patterns built into musical soundtracks can entrain brainwaves and trigger numerous health benefits. Today, Fortune 500 companies, clinics, hospitals, meditation groups, wellness spas, and individuals worldwide use Dr.Thompson’s high-tech musical soundscapes for deep relaxation, healing, creativity, inner exploration, meditation, and more.
With Brainwave Nature Sounds, soothing natural sounds combined with brainwave pulses create four relaxing environments. After a few minutes of listening, your own brainwaves naturally “lock” onto these audio pulses to help lead you to the state of mind you want to experience. This 10-CD collection includes four programs: Alpha Gentle Rain to relax body and mind • Beta Awakened Rainforest to sharpen focus • Theta Meditative Stream for deep meditation and inner calm • Delta Sleepy Ocean to lull you into restful sleep.
