There’s a pharmaceutical-free approach to improve mental health, to increase relaxation and your overall well-being.
Audio-Visual Entrainment (AVE) is a technique that utilizes pulses of light and sound at specific frequencies to gently and safely guide the brain into various brain wave patterns. By manipulating your brain wave frequencies, you have the ability to boost your mood, improve sleep patterns, sharpen your mind and increase your level of relaxation – all with our specialized instrumentation.
The brainwave entrainment is an effective solution for treating anxiety, ADD & ADHD, pain, post traumatic stress Disorder (PTSD), seasonal affective disorder (SAD), TMJ and academic and sports performance.
Let’s have a closer look at the science behind audio-visual brainwave entrainment (AVE) and how it can support you.
Activity in the brain is often measured by observing and recording “brainwaves” which are rhythmic or repetitive neural activity. Brainwaves can be observed through an Electroencephalography (EEG) which is a test that measures electrical brainwave activity along the scalp. Brainwaves are categorized by frequency with each category having different positive and negative effects, depending on your current and desired level of arousal or alertness.
Brainwaves indicate both the level and type of arousal in a part of the brain. When a person is awake and engaging in a task, delta, theta and alpha activity should be low, revealing beta as the dominant wave. As a person relaxes, alpha quickly increases. As a person becomes deeply relaxed and especially with eyes closed, theta will become the dominant brainwave and as a person falls asleep, delta becomes the dominant brainwave with occasional short bursts of sensori-motor rhythm (SMR) in the sensori-motor strip to prevent sleep-walking.
Your Brain matters
We guide our clients through Audio-Visual Brainwave Entrainment sessions using a highly professional, and effective equipment. Depending on the symptom or disorder, we can usually measure changes after three or four 30 minute sessions.
During these sessions we also measure changes in brain activity, heart/brain coherence and heart rate variability (HRV).
