Introduction:

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.
  • They are meant for people age 11 or older. This is because younger children have a harder time noticing how things are affecting them. Please let children decide if they want to listen to the sounds.
  • 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 lifechanging and you can share your membership.

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.

    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 – 17% of people age 75-84 and 32% of people age 85 or older have Alzheimer’s dementia. Research shows that anxiety is linked to dementia, and sound therapy removed 37% of memory blocking plaque in mice in 7 days when used with light therapy we teach in our weekly lessons. This restored their memory by over 25%. Longer term use can do more, and the memory blocking plaque returns when individuals stop listening. We have special features for dementia and users can play the background sound for others. This sound therapy and light therapy process is available on our site along with memory testing. It 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
    • 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.
