Brainwave Entrainment


Wake up your brain

Brainwave entrainment is an evidence-based therapy which combines Audio-Visual Entrainment (AVE) and Cranio-Electro Stimulation (CES) to provide relief for a variety of concerning mental, emotional, and physical issues. Use of the device is painless, has relatively few side-effects, and can be safe used by children, adults and the elderly in the convenience of a home setting.

Audio-Visual Entrainment (AVE) is a technique that uses sound and pulses of light at certain frequencies to safely and gently the brain into specific brainwave patterns. By altering the frequencies of brainwaves, your mood, sleep patterns, sharpness of mind, and relaxation levels can all be improved.

Cranio-Electro Stimulation (CES) is a non-invasive brain stimulation technique that stimulates serotonin, endorphin, and norepinephrine neurotransmitter production. The unit applies a small pulsed electric current across a person's head. It is painless and proven to increase brain function.

Once considered alternative, brainwave entrainment is backed by decades of research and is becoming more widely utilized and accepted in the broader psychiatric community. Individuals who struggle with psychiatric medication intolerance due to side effects may find brainwave entrainment an effective alternative. Combined with traditional talk therapy, brainwave entrainment promotes an accelerated response in recovery from a variety of issues.
