Samvit Wellness is a shared collaboration based on the lifetime work of Dr. Brian Dailey and Dr. Sergey Sorin. Samvit Wellness educates health professionals, the consumer and the caregiver on how to integrate complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) and conventional care with the intention of optimizing people’s health, vitality and quality of life.
Founded in 2013 Samvit Wellness offers workshops around the globe. The Samvit team has presented in such places as: Bali Indonesia, Europe, Grenada, South America and the UK.
We seek out well-vetted CAM therapies, which include sound technology and energy medicine to promote healing and general overall well-being.
What is Hemi-Sync?
…A State of the Art Sound Technology that Speaks the Languages of the Brain.
Hemi-sync is a patented, scientifically and clinically researched “audio guidance” technology refined with over 50 years of research. Researchers learned that specific sound patterns could lead the brain to various states of consciousness ranging from deep relaxation or sleep to creative and focused states.
Why Do We Know This Stuff Will Work?
We all experience a range of normal brainwaves that can be measured by an electroencephalogram (EEG). This device measures our brainwaves as well as provides a means to evaluate what states we might be experiencing at any given moment, states that are considered normal and part of our daily experience.
When we are measuring cerebral signals we typically find readings ranging from 1 to 20 Hz. Although, we are capable of reading lower and higher signals. To better understand, we’ll discuss several brainwaves patterns. We can measure brainwaves using cycles per second, which is called a hertz (Hz). The lower number means slower activity is occurring in the brain.
Beta (13 Hz to approximately 35 Hz)
Beta frequencies originate in the cortex, the thinking/reasoning part of the brain. Beta is the state of awareness we tend to find ourselves in when we are wide-eyed and alert. A beta state is indicative of times when we are engaging with life—being busy or productive, worrying, fretting, concentrating or being fully engaged in an activity. When we are in this state we are usually wide-awake and alert.
Alpha (8 Hz to 12 Hz)
Alpha waves originate in the thalamus, the great relay station in the brain that receives sensory input from external and internal stimuli and then passes them on to the cortex and other parts of the brain for processing. One way to think of alpha is in terms of driving a manual transmission car when the stick shift is in neutral. From a neutral position, one can easily transition to the action phase (beta) or to a state of relaxation (theta and delta). This state or these frequencies can be achieved when relaxing or meditating. Children under the age of six years spend much of their waking time in the alpha brainwaves regions. Typically, one is lying or sitting quietly with eyes closed to reach this state. We tend to step “out” of an alpha state when our eyes are open, when we are thinking or when we invite in our analytical mind to evaluate and review.
Theta (4 Hz to 7 Hz)
Theta brainwaves are instrumental in the limbic system (amygdala, hypothalamus) of the brain. The limbic system is the key to emotional and memory aspects of our brain function. It’s a place that is subconscious for most people, and often overrides or hijacks the rational thinking or reasoning of the cortical brain. These frequencies can be easily reached when sleeping. In the more alert phases of theta, you might find that you tap more readily into your creativity, as this is a highly functioning cognitive state. Researchers Elmer and Alyce Green of the Menninger Foundation said: “Causing the brain to generate theta activity daily over a period of time seems to have enormous benefits, including boosting the immune system, enhancing creativity and triggering feelings of well-being.”
Delta (.5 to 3 Hz)
Delta waves are generated by the brainstem, especially during sleep, and allow the cortical, thinking brain to be down regulated when we need to have rest and recovery. This state typically occurs when one is experiencing a deep level of sleep. Studies indicate that a person benefits mentally and physically from regular delta experiences while sleeping. Delta is also involved in global communications of the cortical brain and has a multitude of other functions.
Gamma (36 Hz to 100 Hz)
Gamma waves have been observed in meditating Buddhists monks. This occurrence suggests when in exceptional circumstances, and without technology, gamma may be experienced and is usually measured in the 35 to 45 Hz range. Gamma waves are typically associated with higher mental activities, peak performance, great intuitive insight and deep clarity during meditation. This state could be described as: “being in the zone.“ There is evidence to suggest that a novice can be trained to experience heightened and extended gamma activity. Gamma states cannot be created using binaural beat technology. As an alternative, SAM (spatial angle modulation) has the capability of helping guide us to a gamma state.
The Proof is in the Pudding. Yes, We Can Measure This!
