"the use of beat frequencies to influence brainwaves"this is really interesting HipJan, thanks for the info. This kind of ties in with hypnotherapy and meditation I think, in terms of going to a different state of consciousness that can promote physical and emotional healing and well-being. I know with transcendential meditation the brainwaves are affected - during meditation you get more Alpha waves *I think*, any way, it's one of the brainwaves. TM also has an ordering effect on the brain function, which can be indicated by EEG (electro - enchephelo) changes during TM. I wonder if this is what is also happening with the sound therapy?? Very interesting!
I know that certain activities can promote more ordered brain function, particularly things with a constant rhythm, like doing the same stich in needlework over and over, or playing some Bach, or some scales on the piano. I think we should all conduct a study on brain waves during these kinds of activities whilst we're hooked up to an EEG!!thanks again for the info,susanp.s I sent you an email about how ME/CFS is diagnosed.
