If you’ve ever felt yourself sleepy while on a train ride, the repetitive chug-a-chug of the wheels lulling you to sleep, there’s a neurological reason for that. The rhythm of the wheels matches a brain wave state that encourages relaxing and sleep. You see, our brains take a cue from the movements of the train and mirror the rhythm. This is called brainwave entrainment. The result is that your state of mind shifts into sleep mode.
Our every activity is reflected in the brain in the form of brainwaves with different frequencies (alpha, beta, gamma, delta, theta…). Simply put, PEMF uses electromagnetic fields in order to stimulate your brain waves. PEMF stands for »Pulsed electromagnetic field therapy” and has been used in big, expensive medical devices for decades with great success. It is a form of neurostimulation that encourages your brain to mimic external signals provided by the device in a non-invasive and entirely safe way. It is scientifically proven and FDA approved.
More about some brainwave frequencies:
- Alpha occur when our mind is awakened, yet relaxed and ready to learn
- Beta help us stay concentrated and alert during a focused mental activity
- Gamma pass information rapidly and quietly. The mind has to be quiet to access gamma
- Delta is predominant during the slow-wave sleep
- Theta occur most often in the state between being awake and drifting off to sleep
We can see a progression there, but It is important to note, that one type of brainwaves is not better than the other – they all serve their purpose. This is an important factor of our effectiveness at focusing, learning, relaxing or getting a good night’s sleep. Slower brainwaves lead to tiredness, while faster ones dictate responsiveness and alertness.
Problems arise when our brain frequency is not aligned with what we are trying to achieve. We have all experienced how fear and stress inhibit us from thinking clearly and concentrating. Sometimes we need a little help to do what needs to be done, let it be focus or simply falling asleep. Is there a solution to these situations? Sure, some people would turn for help to pills, because brain is partly a chemical organ. But a different option exists. We can influence the electrical side of brain. This can be achieved through brainwave entrainment. That’s how NeoRhythm helps you – it gets your brain to the desired frequency.
But keep in mind – with PEMF used in medical devices, the therapies can take up to 6 weeks and the same goes for brainwave entrainment devices, such as NeoRhythm. Although it is a wellness device and uses weaker signals than medical devices, there is still time needed for brain to acclimatize.
