How brainwave entrainment technologies helps you to reduce stress


Stress is a biological term which refers to the consequences of the failure of a human or animal body to respond appropriately to emotional or physical threats to the organism, whether actual or imagined.

It includes a state of alarm and adrenaline production, short-term resistance as a coping mechanism, and exhaustion. Common stress symptoms include irritability, muscular tension, inability to concentrate and a variety of physical reactions, such as headaches and elevated heart rate.

In technical terms, stress is a state of overabundance of beta or higher activity, typical of anxiety or stress. Not surprisingly, people lacking of these vital brainwaves often turn to external substances (such as alcohol, tobacco, or drugs) to induce the production of these brainwaves, providing temporary, and potentially dangerous, relief.

Using relaxation focused brainwaves entrainment sessions, you can not only reduce stress, anxiety, and cravings for external substances, but you can also increase your brain's ability to produce these brainwaves, allowing you to better deal with stress in the future.

Like so many mental disorder there is no a "magic bullet" for anxiety or stress. No "one size fits all" solution will work for everybody. But it is an undisputed fact that stress is vastly reduced by alpha/theta training. Very few studies on brainwave training fail to mention stress reduction as a goal or healthy side effect.

Henry Adams, PhD., head of the alcoholism programs at St. Elizabeth's Hospital In Washington, found that alcoholics showed a 55% in alcohol consumption after a single relaxation session combined with a brief anti-alcohol suggestion.

Peninston & Kulkosky found that Alpha/Theta neurofeedback got successful results in 80% of those properly trained addicts becoming non-craving, healthy people.

I am not saying that you are alcoholic or addict, but if brainwave entrainment works fine in those people, it will work better in slightly stressed people. In Mentallion ( http://www.mentallion.com ) you can find the stress reduction session (therapy code 12500) in this link:

You can find also this session remixed with popular music for better experience in this link:

This session is designed to quickly and deeply relax the listener, focusing on alpha/theta training to give the user more control over relaxation in the future, or to enable the user to reduce stress without the assistance of the sessions.

To use this session, find a quiet place, free of distraction. Make sure you are comfortable and relaxed, in a chair or lying down, close your eyes and enjoy the experience. Although, I used these while finishing my work before going home.
