How well does it work?


The BrainTap Headset delivers gentle pulses of light and sound combined. 


Well, one study, using blood analysis before and after relaxation sessions using flash emitting goggles showed an average increase of beta-endorphin levels of 25% and serotonin levels of 21%. Beta-endorphins are produced by the pituitary gland and are known to have greater analgesic (pain-relieving) potency than morphine, and serotonin is a naturally occurring chemical in the brain that is responsible, in part, for regulating brain functions such as mood, sleep, and memory.



The therapy is also based on the principle of neuroplasticity – the brain's ability to reorganize and form new neural connections throughout life. By repeatedly guiding the brain into certain states, the idea is to promote healthier brain function and response patterns over time.


The brain is not static; it can change and adapt throughout life based on experiences, learning, and external stimuli. This ability of the brain to reorganize its structure, function, and connections is called neuroplasticity.
Repeated sessions of BrainTap Therapy aim to capitalize on this property by promoting positive neural patterns and potentially strengthening beneficial neural pathways over time.

Personalized Sessions


BrainTap Therapy often offers a range of sessions tailored to specific goals, such as stress reduction, sleep improvement, or cognitive enhancement. Other sessions in the catalog are PTSD, Knee Pain, Lyme Disease, Weight Loss, Nerve Pain, etc. 


Just as a workout might be tailored to specific fitness goals, BrainTap sessions can be personalized based on the desired outcome. There might be sessions dedicated to stress reduction, others for sleep optimization, some for cognitive enhancement, etc.  Personalization ensures that the stimuli (audio, visual, or both) are best suited to drive the desired outcomes.

Brainwave Entrainment: 


The combination of auditory and visual stimuli aims to lead the brain towards specific brainwave states such as alpha (relaxation and creativity), beta (alertness and concentration), theta (deep relaxation and meditation), or delta (deep sleep).


This process of aligning or "entraining" brainwave frequencies to desired states is a central concept in BrainTap Therapy.

This is the process by which external stimuli (like sound or light) guide the brain into specific brainwave frequencies. The main brainwave states targeted include:


  • Alpha: Typically associated with relaxed alertness, creativity, and reduced anxiety.
  • Beta: Associated with active, analytical thought and focus.
  • Theta: Related to deep relaxation, meditation, and REM sleep.
  • Delta: Linked with deep, dreamless sleep and regeneration.


By entraining the brain to these states, the therapy aims to promote specific mental and emotional conditions.

Here are the primary elements and concepts behind BrainTap Therapy:

LED Light Therapy: 


The BrainTap headset delivers gentle light pulses that travel through the retina and ear meridians, sending direct signals to the brain and guiding you into unparalleled brain states.  Pulsing light, in the correct pattern and intensity, can produce levels of deep relaxation known to affect serotonin and endorphin levels, with an average increase of 21 percent in one study. These increases not only can calm and relax the mind but also produce powerful effects in maintaining a positive outlook and optimistic thinking.


LED stands for Light Emitting Diode. In the context of BrainTap Therapy, LEDs in visors flash at specific frequencies and colors. These pulses can stimulate the brain and influence various physiological responses.  Different colors can have different effects. For instance, blue light can be stimulating and might be used to promote alertness, while red light can be calming and may promote relaxation.  The combination of visual and auditory stimuli is believed to enhance the brain's entrainment process.

Guided Visualization: 


Many BrainTap sessions incorporate guided visualization or meditation. These are designed to focus the mind and promote relaxation, clarity, or other desired states.


In general, the visual imagery process involves the individual setting aside a period for relaxation, during which he or she contemplates mental images depicting a desired result or goal. This exercise is done during the spoken-word sessions to help the listener envision a consistent image (either literal or symbolic) of the results desired from the session.


Visualization has been studied for decades, having been shown to have the power to affect mental states, improve physical and athletic performance and even heal the body. And when combined with the other elements of BrainTap, these effects are increased and optimized.


Another aid to the guided meditation is 10-cycle holographic music, which is a sonic technology that produces a 360-degree sound environment.  In this sonic environment, the visualizations become more real to the mind, helping the user take full advantage of the power of the visualizations by creating a more receptive learning state.

Binaural Beats and Isochronic Tones: 


One of the foundational technologies in BrainTap Therapy is the use of binaural beats and isochronic tones. These are sound frequencies designed to influence brainwave activity.


When two different tones, separated in frequency by only a few Hertz, are introduced — one in each ear — the brain perceives a third, unique tone. Binaural beats work by creating this phantom frequency, which the brain then mimics. For example, if we play a 220 Hz carrier tone into the left ear and a 226.5 Hz carrier tone into the right ear, your brain perceives the difference between the two, which is a subtle beat frequency of 6.5 Hz, the same frequency associated with deep, meditative states. Your brain naturally follows this frequency, and you experience this deeply relaxed state.  BrainTap’s proprietary algorithms have been shown to produce a state of calm and concentration in the brain, yielding the full effect of the guided visualization, and resulting in extraordinary levels of performance that would otherwise take years of practice to achieve.


Isochronic tones are equal intensity pulses of sound separated by an interval of silence. They turn on and off rapidly, but the speed depends on the  desired brain frequency. The discrete nature of isochronic tones makes them particularly easy for the brain to follow. While binaural beats rely on balanced hearing in both ears, isochronic tones work effectively for nearly everyone, except for someone with complete hearing loss. This is one of the reasons BrainTap’s proprietary algorithms incorporate both types of tones.

BrainTap Therapy is a type of wellness intervention that is designed to balance brainwave activity, enhance relaxation, and promote mental clarity. It often combines various technologies and modalities to achieve these goals. Brain waves are electrical patterns produced when the brain’s neurons communicate with each other. These waves are measured using an electroencephalogram (EEG), which records the electrical activity in different parts of the brain. Each brain wave is associated with specific mental states, such as deep sleep, relaxation, and alertness. Brain waves play an important role in our daily lives, affecting our mood, behavior, and cognitive functions. Whenever brain waves are out of balance, stress is the likely culprit.


BrainTap uses a proprietary neuro-algorithm that results in full-spectrum brainwave activity. This allows for maximum neuroplasticity, making the brain more flexible and resilient, geared up and ready for optimal performance. With BrainTap, you can break free from chronic stress and burnout and achieve clear, focused thinking with the confidence to make better choices.
