Did you know that binaural beats can help ease pain?
Thousands of people suffer from pain daily. Chronic pain not only affects your physical health but your mental health as well. As a result, people who suffer from chronic pain may also experience:
- Poor Sleep
- tiredness or fatigue
Studies have shown that alternative modalities such as beats and tones can help reduce pain for chronic sufferers and consequently helping them to sleep better, relieve stress from pain, and improve their quality of life when used alongside their doctor’s prescribed treatment. In fact, the global community of the National Fibromyalgia and Chronic Pain Association advocates the use of brain wave entrainment to help cope with chronic pain.

Normally we experience what’s called Acute Stress which is short term and goes quickly away. Acute stress is usually caused by stress factors called “Stressors” such as when you have a sudden scare like when a bee flies in your face or a spider is next to you. Stressors trigger your fight or flight response.
- Heart Disease
- High blood pressure
- Autoimmune Disease
But stress can also present itself as physical symptoms such as:
- Weight gain or loss
- Diarrhea or constipation
- Frequent aches and pains
- Sexual problems
- Menstrual problems
- Trouble sleeping
- Depression or anxiety
Someone under chronic stress could experience:
- Angry outbursts
- Feelings of being overwhelmed
- Irritability or anger
- Sadness or depression
- Social withdrawal
- Changes in sex drive
- Chest pain
- Lack of motivation and focus
Chronic stress can be brought on by stressors such as those relating to money problems, difficulties with school or work, and unhappy relationships. It brings on feelings of frustration, anger, nervousness, or hopelessness.
Amazingly, we don’t consider chronic stress as a factor when we experience the above symptoms. Most of the time we blame an illness such as colds, flu, even allergies as the cause.
More and more studies are finding that daily meditation practice is important for lowering stress and anxiety, decreasing blood pressure, improving sleep, and your overall health. Binaural beats are a great tool to use while meditating to help you achieve a more relaxed state. Binaural beats are a form of brain entrainment and can bring your mind down to a slower state similar to those which you experience while watching your favorite tv show when you are in that twilight between awake and sleep, and even a deep sleep state. Science is finding that listening to music also can help you relax even more and improve your stress and anxiety
There are so many ways to meditate and it doesn’t require you to spend a lot of time doing it. Just taking five minutes a day to stop and breathe goes a long way to helping reduce chronic stress. Studies also show that soft, soothing music is one of the best ways to reduce stress, lower your heart rate, blood pressure, and reduce your cortisol levels.
Binaural beats have been proven to be a safe and effective way of reducing stress, pain, and helping achieve a more relaxing state. However, as with any audio that contains hypnotic, meditative, or deeply relaxing material or subject matter, you should consult with your doctor to make sure it is safe for you to use.
Some people are more sensitive to certain tones and may find they can cause an adverse reaction. If you find you have a sensitivity to any tone, please discontinue use.
