Original Binaural Beat Enhanced Music

Integrating music with supportive health care provides a clinically validated intervention for many physical and mental conditions.    We have long understood the power of music to control the spirit, but it has only been the last decade that we have seen tangible and visible interactions between the physical brain and music.     Physiological changes in heart rate, respiration, hormone levels, and blood oxygen levels can be actively observed when listening to specific types of music.

Our specialized compositions are created to guide an individual towards a vary specific state of mind. Using Binaural Beats that are subtly layered within each of the musical tracks, we can elicit a wide range of target responses in brain wave activity. Beta, Alpha, Theta and Delta brain states are achieved by synchronizing with the embedded binaural beats.

While the principal application for enhanced music is prominently used in alternative medicine and Music for Guided Meditation. Enhanced music can also stimulate heightened response in creativity and learning making it an excellent choice for training videos and neurolinguistic behavior programming.
