Brainwave Entrainment has been around for over 70 years, so it is not just a passing fad. Also known as brainwave synchronization, it is a technique that synchronizes your brainwave frequencies with an external stimulus, usually sound waves.
The brain cycles through different brainwave frequencies every day, and each frequency corresponds to a different level of consciousness. For example, your brainwave frequencies when you are awake are completely different from your brainwave frequencies when you are sleeping.
By listening to Brainwave Entrainment audios, you can alter your brainwave frequencies in order to reach a desired level of consciousness. For example, if you need help falling asleep, you can synchronize your brainwaves into the frequency that corresponds to sleep. Another popular reason for using Brainwave Entrainment is to help get into a meditative state.
Brainwave synchronization is possible because the brain has a "frequency following" response. This phenomenon occurs because the brain naturally changes its dominant EEG frequency to correspond with the dominant frequency of an external stimulus.
The most common stimulus used in Brainwave Entrainment is sound waves. Two popular modes of audio Brainwave Synchronization are Binaural Beats and Isochronic Tones.
