Ancient Wisdom Realised: Binaural Beats
Binaural beats are a modern-day audio technology and wellbeing tool: a scientifically proven realization of a wisdom passed down over thousands of years and practised in the traditional rituals of almost every ancient culture to promote wellbeing. With advances in technology, the basic premise of these traditional chants and beats has finally been realized and perfected to create this effective mind focusing and relaxation tool: binaural beats.
What are Binaural Beats and how do they promote sleep?
The word binaural essentially means “having or relating to two ears”. Using headphones, two similar sound frequencies are played into each ear. In making sense of the sensation; the brain generates the third tone based on the difference between the two frequencies and then follows along at the new frequency. For example, if a 200 Hz sound frequency is sent to the left ear, and a 210 Hz to the right ear, the brain will perceive a new frequency of 10 Hz. Depending on the frequencies heard, this process can induce different states of the mind; contributing to stress relief, focus, sleep, pain relief and much more.
Which frequency should I use for sleep?
‘Delta state’ or ‘Theta state’ frequencies are typically used to aid relaxation and sleep. Delta waves range between 0.1-4Hz and Theta 4-8Hz. Often the ‘beats’ are accompanied by music or other relaxing natural sounds such as waves or birdsong; whether you choose to listen to them in isolation or with these sounds depends entirely on your own preferences. You can easily find free recordings online.
Try combining this fantastic technique with other sleep aids like Organica Advanced Sleep Lotion to promote a truly blissful night’s sleep.
