Set of 5 Unweighted Brain Tuners
The 5 unweighted tuning forks in the Brain Tuners set are designed to directly influence brain wave states. Set of forks is supplied with velveteen case and mallet.
Electroencephalography (EEG) technology has been used to identify various states of consciousness namely Beta, Alpha, Theta and Delta.
|Brain Wave State||Usually associated with:|
|Beta||Active, busy or anxious thinking and active concentration, arousal, cognition|
|Alpha||Relaxation (while awake), pre-sleep and pre-wake drowsiness|
|Theta||Dreams, deep meditation, REM sleep|
|Delta||Deep dreamless sleep, loss of body awareness|
The Brain Tuners are tapped on an activator at the same time (or one quickly after the other with a mallet) and each one is held while its vibrating/sounding out close to each of the 2 ears. Forks should be brought in close to the ears from a wider distance (e.g. half a metre) and settle at a distance that is comfortable for the person who is listening – this distance is normally 10-20cms.
To aid deep relaxation begin with the Beta fork and the fundamental brain tuner. Work down through Alpha, Theta and Delta always using the fundamental tuner alongside the named tuner. The brain joins the 2 sounds to create a third, different sound giving a binaural beat effect.
The difference between the two frequencies must be small for the effect to occur; otherwise, the two tones will be heard separately and no beat will be perceived. When the Fundamental Brain Tuner tuning fork is sounded with any of the 4 Brain tuning forks, the difference between the two tuning forks creates a binaural beat effect which can be heard as a pulsation.
The binaural beat effect influence the brain in subtle ways through the entrainment of brainwaves and can be used to produce relaxation and other health benefits such as pain relief. This binaural beat entrainment effect has been used extensively to induce a variety of states of consciousness.
It has been shown to be beneficial for people suffering with chronic stress and insomnia.
