The sounds on this site help you remember and increase brain electrical rhythms for focus, memory, and relaxation. It has been proven that listening to certain sound rhythms increases brain rhythms that happen with different levels of focus, or relaxation.
After you read this page you can go to the Sound Guide in Step 1, and then to the sounds you want to use.
Our website is designed with the same materials that have been taught to clinicians from The University of Minnesota Medical Center, Hazelden, Passages – Malibu, and The State of Minnesota Department of Health and Human Services.
- You can listen to them on headphones, and on speakers.
- If you listen on speakers, please don’t play it where others can hear you.
- You can listen to it as a background sound as you work, read, relax, or as a background to shows and music.
Listening at least twice a week is recommended, and up to once a day. Please take two days off a week from listening (unless you need them for chronic pain). Each page will have instructions on it for each use.
- Most people feel results right away for things like focus, relaxation, sleep anxiety or pain.
- It takes most adults and teens about 50 hours of practice to learn a new skill to the point that they can do it automatically from “muscle memory”. This includes like balancing heart and brain rhythms in a new way. Some people’s need to use the sounds more if they have a more long term or developmental need (like for chronic pain or autism).
- The results are often life changing. And, you can share your membership with family, friends, co-workers, and people you help through your work.
Your Memory Scores and Progress:
- You can record your score on the Free Memory Test page and compare it to new scores as you progress.
- Try listening to the focus sound or the memory enhancing sound for 20 minutes while taking the test.
- You can share your membership for free with family members, people you or your children are in school with, co-workers, and people you help through your work.
- You can use the free memory test that gives a raw score and compares them to all test takers of ages 6 and up. You can track your score changes to compare how you are doing as you continue training brain rhythms with the sound rhythms. It is easy to enhance the rhythms when we practice them like a music rhythm.
- Please listen in a safe, and comfortable place.
- The sound meditation on this site is meant for people who are at least 11 years old.
- Please, only have children listen to them if they agree to it. Listeners should have their legal guardians supervising them.
- Please use headphones when you are listening with other people, unless they want or need to practice the same rhythms.
- Please only listen while sitting, lying down, or exercising in a way where you let go of the outside world. The sounds will affect your attention. Don’t listen while operating machinery, anything dangerous, or driving. Also, please listen while sober.
- Site users are expected to follow the rules on this page, and in the rules page.
When you are ready, please find the sound that will help you the most in the menu. If you want to read research, you can in The Science Research page.
Below is a summary of common, repeated results in research when it is done in 30 minute sessions, 2-3 times a week, for 30-40 sessions:
- Memory and Focus – It has been shown that short term memory increases by an average of 11% (including aging adults) when people listen to our focus sound for 30 minutes a day for a month. It is shown that children with ADHD and other learning disabilities can see an increase of over 29%. Ongoing listening helps, and the results happen in under 4 weeks. The more you listen, the more deeply your can change your focus. The focus sound rhythm reminds the listener of the brain rhythm used for focus and memory. You can listen while you work, read, relax, or workout.
- Pain – Over 20% of adults have chronic pain, and more as we age. Published research on people with chronic pain who used our sound rhythms showed that listening at least twice a week lowered their feelings of pain by an average of 77% after sessions in the first two weeks. When people listen for the first time, they often experience a 50% reduction, and the benefits increase with practice and last for days. You can listen daily as needed, and you practice the rhythms mentally, like music.
- Anxiety or Depression – Clients can listen to the sounds to relax or fall asleep, or use them to imagine a stressful or traumatic experience being handled in a calmer way. In a hospital study and other studies, anxiety reduced by 58% more than classical music and 86% more than not using any sound or music for meditation or brain training. The same sound patterns used for anxiety significantly lower depression symptoms, since anxiety and depression overlap or develop from each other.
- Migraines – Around 15-20% of adults get migraines. Migraines are significantly reduced, because users can practice relaxing the intense blood flow in the brain leading to pain.
- Dementia, Alzheimer’s – Currently, around 15-18% of people over age 65 have either dementia or Alzheimer’s, and 34.6% of people 85 and older have Alzheimer’s. Recent research showed our concentration rhythm removed 37% of plaque that blocks memory in important brain areas for memory in mice with Alzheimer’s after listening for one hour a day. They listened with light pulses in the same rhythm for one week, and the sounds alone are also proven to help people’s memories. The mice brains improved significantly after one week, and people experience differences in weeks and months. Longer treatment will help memory more, because the plaque can return. The same process is continually being researched for people, and is being shown to effect people in similar ways (here is a research study at the National Institute of Health for results with people). The sound rhythms that they used are a part of our service, along with memory testing, and you can share it with family, friends, and your community. Here is an article at the National Institute of Health discussing the sound treatment research for mice with Alzheimer’s.
- ADHD and Autism – It has been proven that impulsive behavior decreased by more than 30% in 8 year olds with impulsive ADHD by listening to the sound we have for executive functions. Similar changes happen for adults. It has been proven to increase “working memory” by 11% (on average) for typical adults without ADHD, and as much as 29-32% in people with ADHD. There are changes in autism too, with the changes being different for each case. The changes happen when user listens to the sound for focus on this site 2 times a week for at least 12 weeks.
- Insomnia – If you listen to the sound for sleep before bed, it helps insomnia. It is proven to help deep sleep brain rhythms, and helped decrease insomnia by 68% in research. They make falling asleep and getting into deep sleep easier. People with histories of complex stress especially find the sound helpful, and people who have been sleeping 4-6 hours a night have changed to sleeping 8-9 hours a night in weeks.
- Tinnitus – You can also use a background sound that increases a brain pattern that lowers ringing in the ears of people with tinnitus by 78% (on average), and the effects last after using the background sound.
