If you have spent some time in the self-development field and poked around some of the more popular forums, you would have heard about sound therapy techniques that use isochronic tones and their many benefits on the brain.
And you may have wondered: what are isochronic tones? How do they work? What is the research behind them? And are they safe?
Here are all the facts you need to catch up on this new craze that is taking over the world by storm.
What Are Isochronic Tones
Isochronic tones are single tones being turned on and off at a consistent or regular rate.
The best way to visualize it is by imagining yourself putting on headphones and listening to a single tone being turned on and off very fast with the same amount of time in between beats.
The speed at which the tone is switched on and off is called a frequency and is measured in terms of Hertz (Hz) which is the internationally recognized measurement for frequency.
An isochronic tone with a frequency of 10Hz is one that plays 10 beats in a second; 7Hz play 7 beats in a second; and so on.
So why are these isochronic tones so popular?
Because when you listen to them as usually prescribed, they achieve wonderful things like alter your mind state, reduce your stress, and help you enter a meditative state.
The Key to How Isochronic Tones Work – and Hence Their Effectiveness – Lies in How Your Brain Works
Your brain is a marvelous organ, a true work of art. Despite all the advancements in science and technology throughout the years, we are yet to fully understand the length and breadth of our own mind and what it is capable of.
But we have come a long way in studying this complex organ called the brain. Now know many facts about it like the fact that it is made of neurons that are constantly firing off and exchanging information with each other.
This exchange of information produces tiny amounts of electricity at a frequency which is known as brainwaves. They basically influence our emotional state and the very way our brain functions.
For example, the higher your brainwave vibration, the more awake, reactive, or alert you feel. On the other hand, when it’s lower, the more likely you are to feel sleepy and need rest.
Now, isochronic tones have been shown to be able to influence and drive brainwave activity in remarkable ways. When you listen to Isochronic tones, your brainwave frequency synchronizes to the vibration of the tone to which you are listening.
This is a completely natural process and frequently seen in nature. For example, when you strike a tuning fork and place another next to it, the second turning fork will soon start vibrating at the same frequency.
The same thing happens when you tune into Isochronic sounds. You sync with the sound you listen to, and this has an effect on your mood and mental, and emotional state.
You can literally, naturally, and easily change the way you feel by using Isochronic technology.
This spectacular sound therapy technique can help boost your immune system, help dissolve stress, increase overall health, and bring on enlightenment simply by altering the frequency of your brain waves.
Benefits of Consistently Using Brainwave Entrainment
Because of their profound effects, using Isochronic sound therapy as a means of healing is gaining recognition and influence worldwide.
The times are long passed when they were reserved strictly for improving focus and inducing relaxation for easy meditation.
Here are a few of the benefits that come with Isochronic tones:
Periods of stress, anger, agitation, and anxiety usually correspond to increased amounts of beta waves activity (from 14-30hz).
By attuning into Isochronic sounds in the lower alpha range, you can alter your mood almost immediately and gain relief from anxiety, melt away tension, increase relaxation, and enter a flow state (where you effortlessly act and interact with your surroundings).
Meditation and Relaxation:
In our fast-paced world it can sometime feel impossible to relax naturally, talk less of entering the deep restful states necessary for proper meditation. And this can be frustrating for everybody, especially if you are new to the practice of meditation.
By taking advantage of Isochronic tones, however, you can influence your brain into restful alpha (8-14Hz) and theta (4-8Hz) frequencies necessary for entering meditative and inner peace mental states.
Increased Focus, Better Cognition and Memory:
Isochronic tones can fire things up by elevating your lazy brainwaves into the active beta range which will make you more alert and focused on the job at hand and your surroundings.
Alpha range has also been shown by research to be helpful in improving cognitive functions like memorizing and retaining information.
Improving Quality of Sleep and Power Napping:
Too much beta brainwave activity is often the cause of your inability to shut down and go to bed. Isochronic tones are able to help with that by promoting lower delta (0.1-4Hz) range which is optimal for deep, restful sleep.
Energy and Motivation:
By consistently listening to Isochronic tones, you have a chemical-free alternative to energy drinks and other energy boosters. These sounds can simply influence your brainwave activity to the higher beta and gamma (30-100Hz) frequencies for an energy boosting effect.
Are They Safe to Use?
The answer is a resounding yes. Because Isochronic tones make use of natural phenomena to induce changes in your brain, there are no side effects whatsoever to using them.
In fact, sound therapy techniques have been in use in the medical field and other related fields for decades. They are no longer considered the sole preserve of the self-help community anymore. And that is a good thing.
