We’ve recently started incorporating Isochronic Sound Therapy into our Reiki Sessions and Reiki Shares utilizing Iosochronic Tones that will entrain your brain utilizing Alpha frequencies to trigger the release of Beta Endorphins.
Beta-endorphins make us feel good. They are chemicals released into the body to help maintain balance when an outside factor like pain is being felt. Not only do Beta-endorpins help relieve pain, but they also provide euphoric sensations when we do things that our brain perceives as good. The good sensation we get when we eat is caused by endorphins. Psychologists call this “the reward path”. Endorphins are the chemicals also responsible for the “runner’s high” that marathoners experience while distance running.
Just like any other brain activity, endorphin release is directly linked to specific brain wave patterns. The trick is to get the brain to produce these patterns and you too can experience feelings that range from pain relief to euphoria. As we age, our lifestyles become more stressful and chronic pain is common among even healthy individuals. The alternative is often more dangerous and debilitating than the pain itself!
We are so happy with the results of the combination of Reiki with Isochronic Sound Therapy, we hope you get the chance to give it a try!
How Does it Work?
Brainwave Entrainment not a passing fad, but has been researched for over 170 years. The human brain goes through many frequency cycles every day, each frequency producing different effects in the human consciousness. Using this information, it has been discovered that the receiving and operating frequency of the brain can be altered and even controlled through the use of sound waves. Unfortunately, it was originally thought these waves were difficult or impossible to tap through sound waves since they happened beneath the 20 Hz range. Since that time, however, binaural beats have made it possible to hear what was previously thought unhearable.
Isochronic tones are the most powerful type of brainwave entrainment, utilizing equal intensity tones, increasing the pulse speed, and synchronizing your brain with the rhythm. Isochronics use a distinct and clean wave form which is designed to harmonize with the brain much more efficiently. In 1999, Thomas Budzynski Ph.D. published a case in the Journal of Neurotherapy which showed that a group of 8 college students increased their GPA with the use of audio brainwave stimulation, and their GPA continued to increase even after the experiment was finished. Headphones are optional but recommended.
We have found that a Endorphin Release Isochronic Sound Therapy via headphones during Reiki Sessions and Reiki Shares creates an extra relaxed healing state in which the body and mind can remember how to heal themselves naturally.
