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.
The Brainwave Starter Kit will immerse you in the lush soundscapes of Dr. Jeffrey Thompson, with six hours of pioneering compositions that let you "orchestrate your state of mind." This special collection includes two of Dr. Thompson's most popular brainwave entrainment programs:
