Sound & Light Therapy

Sound and Light Therapy is a safe, drug-free way of being guided into deep relaxation and other beneficial mental states - the optimal way for mind exploration. Light-Sound Therapy is a method of BrainWave-entrainment; i.e. a way of training your brain to enter super-relaxed or super-focused states, as well as states in between. These 15-60 minute sessions are tailored to you specifically and allow you to relax and quiet your mind and body. The therapy also aids in stress relief, gentle meditation, allows fast pick-me-ups, stimulates creativity and mental focus for study time and can be used as a quick refresher and it will revitalize you after a long day.

Sound/Light Therapy helps in the following areas

  1. Anxiety

  2. Insomnia

  3. Depression                                                           

  4. Self-Esteem

  5. Fibromyalgia

  6. Hypertension

  7. Stress Management

  8. Chronic Fatigue/Pain

  9. Improves Energy Levels

  10. SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder)

  11. Improve Academic & Athletic Performance

  12. Stimulus to creative imagination and brainstorming

  13. Helps increase motivational levels and concentration

So what is Sound/Light Therapy?

By flashing lights through an eye set and pulsing tones through headphones, we can gently guide ourselves into various brainwave states. After a short period of time, the brain begins to resonate at (or mirror) the same frequency as the stimuli. Our brains produce four basic brainwave states: beta, alpha, theta and delta. A healthy brain will produce the appropriate brainwaves for a given situation. For example, when reading, a healthy brain will be producing beta brainwaves. Due to stress, chemical imbalances, genetics, etc, people may produce improper brainwaves for certain activities. - Delta waves (below 4 hz) occur during sleep - Theta waves (4-7 hz) are associated with sleep, deep relaxation (like hypnotic relaxation), and visualization - Alpha waves (8-13 hz) occur when we are relaxed and calm - Beta waves (13-38 hz) occur when we are actively thinking, problem-solving, etc.

The Six Things that Interfere with Balanced Brain Wave Patterns:

  1. Pain

  2. Injury

  3. Stress

  4. Fatigue

  5. Emotional distress

  6. Medications, including alcohol

These 6 types of problems tend to create a pattern in our brain's activity that is hard to shift. Using Sound/Light Therapy addresses these six problems. People who are suffering from depression are not making enough alpha brainwaves, which we need for a more balanced and happy life.

Research has shown that The Voyager is an effective non-drug approach to reduce the symptoms of many disorders that are caused by improper brainwave production. It is being successfully used by thousands of people for insomnia, chronic pain, , fibromyalgia, stress management, seasonal affective disorder (SAD), hypertension (high blood pressure), and general well being and relaxation. It also improves self-esteem, cognition (mental agility) and performance in sports and business.

The light and sound device consists of a set of earphones and eye goggles. What makes this piece of equipment work is a series of timed flashing white lights, coupled with intermittent pulsing tones that graduate in intensity so as not to overwhelm the listener. The actual process that takes place is called brainwave entrainment, which is exactly as the name implies that is, training brain waves to fall into an specific pre-determined brainwave pattern such as the alpha state. This is much like what happens during a similar process called biofeedback, which helps the patient concentrate to relax their minds. The results are even verified by tracking brain wave patterns through a clinically administered EEG. The same or even better results are achieved even though a different process is utilized. The mix of the two sensory tools gently bring the mind to a relaxed calm alpha state which is the state that is achieved through years and years of training in the process of meditation all in a single session. No wonder it has such a wonderful effect on people.
