How ‘Braintapping’ Can Help Relieve Stress & Fatigue, Among Other Issues

By Dr. Patrick K. Porter, Ph.D.



“Braintapping,” also known as brainwave entrainment, is one of the most powerful, mind-enhancing methods available. Industry experts have touted its benefits, from alleviating stress and improving cognitive performance to reducing physical pain.

Retraining brainwaves can help you recharge and relax, especially if you have been experiencing difficulty sleeping, low energy, high stress or other daily lifestyle challenges.

Backed by neuroscience and research, brainwave entrainment helps guide the brain from an awake, reactionary mind into an intuitive, creative state, and then to a place where super-learning and healing can occur – with the outcome being a heightened state of consciousness with crystal clear focus.

The practice of brainwave training creates a symphony of brainwave activity, and a feeling of calm focus that’s ideal for learning, productivity, healing and clarity. Unlike traditional meditation programs, brainwave entrainment’s neuro-algorithms naturally guide the brain through various brainwave patterns – the result is a complete spectrum of brainwave activity.

Brainwave entrainment is a powerful technology that allows us to have greater control over our brainwaves, and in turn, greater control over our mental states. The restful, rejuvenating effects of even just 10 to 20 minutes of this approach can help balance the nervous system and protect against common stressors of everyday life.


Healing Through the Power of Sound and Frequency

So what exactly is entrainment? Entrainment is a physics principle in which one rhythmic system falls in synchrony with another rhythmic system. For instance, if you’ve ever found yourself swaying your body back and forth to the beat of your favorite song, then you have experienced entrainment in its most simplistic form.

Looking deeper, brainwave entrainment occurs when the electric rhythms of your brain begin to synchronize with the same rhythms of an external source. This source could come in the form of sound, touch or pulsing light. Brainwave entrainment is effective because by presenting ourselves with sound (or light) pulsating at specific frequencies, we can alter our brainwaves to the same rhythm, and in effect, willingly better control our mental, emotional and physical states.

For example, people with attention deficit disorder (ADD) can use the process to reduce theta brainwaves and increase beta brainwaves, resulting…
