Music therapy or binaural beats have been around for a long time, over 170 years. These beats use two different frequencies, one in each ear that helps stimulate the brain to help you relax. The beats are set into soft relaxing music often with sounds of nature such as birds chirping or waterfalls ect.
The benefits from the different frequencies, and the positive effects it has on the mind and body is good. There are four different frequency waves that are used in music therapy, and they are, Delta, Theta, Alpha, and Beta, and each one has it's own benefit.
Delta waves which is 1-3 Hz, and the benefits are, if you are having trouble sleeping, it is also good for lucid dreaming, which can help you if you have constant nightmares, and it also helps increase immune functions.
Theta waves which is 4-7 Hz, and the benefits are, it's good for deep relaxation or meditation, hypnosis, also to increase memory, and to help you focus better.
Alpha waves which is 8-13 Hz, and the benefits are, that it will help you with light relaxation (while awake), also helps with learning, and positive thinking.
Beta waves which is 13-25 Hz, and the benefits are, that it will help with normal state of alertness, busy or anxious thinking, active concentration, and relieves stress, and anxiety.
The biggest benefit is that you don't have to go to a therapist to get this treatment, you can do it in the comfort of your own home. So many people have never heard of music therapy, or sound therapy, because of the fact that you had to go see a doctor, and get referred to a therapist who deals with these kinds of problems. Like always doctors don't want people to know about these kinds of treatments that you can do at home, because they will lose money. You know how it works, they want you to see a therapist that they recommend so they get a commission, then once you see a therapist they want you to go and see them two or three times a week for a month, this can be very expensive, and inconvenient.
In conclusion, there is no reason that you can't do this in the comfort of your own home. When you see a therapist they put you in a room by yourself with headphones and they make you listen to the music for a certain amount of time, and that's it, and make you go back several more times. You can do the same thing at home, find a quiet place and put on some headphones, and just relax and listen to the music, and save yourself some money, it's the same thing!
