What is Brain Therapy?


Well, some of it may seem a little complex or even like some odd new-age spiritual mumbo-jumbo, but there is real science behind it all. Let's see if we can take a gander at trying to break it down.

Quantum physics explains, "all matter is organized by waveforms and frequencies."


Everything in this world is energy, right? The sun is energy in light and heat. Plants, trees and human beings are energy. So the idea is each object gives off energy at a different vibrational level,
producing its own unique frequency. You've heard different frequencies at a rock concert or when someone blows a whistle. Some of these vibrations can be heard by the human ear, and others require sophisticated equipment.


So - you have a frequency all your own. It's the vibrations given off from every cell in your body. Your thoughts and feelings have unique frequencies altogether. We can even see them in a brain wave scan . They're represented by those wavy lines you see jumping around on an EEG monitor after someone has been connected to a bunch of electrodes by people wearing white coats. Those brain wave patterns on the monitor are translating the speed at which the neurons fire.


A neuron is a highly specialized cell which transmits chemical signals in your body. Different types of neurons make up the nervous system and transmit information through your whole body.

Go on.

Every time a neuron fires to communicate information to another neuron, an electro-magnetic spark of energy is released. It's like firing a flare gun to send a message. The more rapid the fire, the faster the frequency. There are very specific frequencies related to the different activities of the body and mind. Each of these brain waves has a unique frequency set somewhere between 1 and 70 Hz, and we've assigned each of those frequencies a unique name.

Ready? I hope you remember your Greek Alphabet...

Alpha is the frequency associated with creativity and relaxation. The brain waves in Alpha are gentle and slow.

In the Beta state, the neurons fire rapidly like it's 4th of July. While in the Beta state, it is likely you are focused and in deep concentration (like right now!)

Gamma is the frequency assigned with awareness and precognition, and it is typically supported by the other frequencies.

When brain activity slows down but your mind is still mostly conscious like before you drift off to sleep, your brain is in the Theta state. Theta is often associated with exercises to uncover memories or even past lives - if you're into that kind of thing.

Once you are completely relaxed in deep meditation or sleep, your brain waves slow all the way down to what is known as Delta.

Still with me? Awesome.

So now we come to the Law of Resonance. You may remember this from your science classes in school. It states, "all energy resonates at a specific frequency enabling only energy of a harmonious frequency to attach to it creating your physical results", or "when two energy fields vibrating at different frequencies are brought together, the resonance of the two must meet. Either the higher will be pulled down to the lower, the lower will be raised to the higher, or they will meet somewhere in between."

Say what now?

Basically, if there is an object that begins to resonate (vibrate) at a certain frequency and there is another similar object nearby, it will also begin to resonate at the same frequency. If they're both buzzing humming at different frequencies, they'll adjust to match each other.

You may have seen the tuning fork demonstration. One tuning fork is struck, causing it to hum. Another tuning fork nearby will also begin to hum in unison even though it has not been struck at all. Cool! Maybe you're experienced it at a stoplight when some young music buff pulls up next to you with the base in his car cranked up. Your car - and even your head - will begin to hum and vibrate in unison. Hm, not as cool.

In brain wave therapy, your brain is exposed to the frequency matching whatever you are seeking - concentration, relaxation or memory. This exposure enables your natural brain frequency to shift and actually match the particular frequency you need for whatever task you want to accomplish.

Based on everything we've learned so far, it makes perfect sense, right? Right.
