Autosuggestion

Try repeating to yourself: “I will fail. I am a bluff. I am a loser” and you will realize just how powerful your thoughts can be.

Autosuggestion uses positive affirmations to train the subconscious mind and influence the way a person thinks, perceives or believes. As well as implementing the power of positive thinking, Autosuggestion builds on such techniques as:

  • Progressive Muscle Relaxation
  • Autogenic Training
  • Active Imagination
  • and other tried and tested psychological methods

It can help to relieve anxiety and stress, and provide an alternative perspective for dealing with problems.

Binaural Beats

Binaural Beats are used to synchronize brainwaves to achieve a specific mental state.

This process of Auditory Bilateral Stimulation is the rhythmic alternation of sonic activation between the left and the right brain hemispheres, resulting in an energy transfer that is known as Brainwave Entrainment. Binaural Beats are able to produce specific effects such as inducing sleep, relaxation, and energizing. They do this by creating signals at the same frequency as the brainwaves of the desired mental state, causing them to resonate and to synchronize.

In practice, a tone is played over headphones and tuned slightly differently in each ear. The difference between the two tones generates the so-called “beat” (oscillation) which causes a measurable change in brain activity.

ASMR

Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response (ASMR) has been widely reported to relieve insomnia, anxiety, or panic attacks, despite the image that some may have of erotic whispering and virtual shampoo sessions.

Sometimes referred to as Mind Massage, ASMR uses a palette of binaural sonic-triggers – such as tapping, scratching, and whispering – to generate a sensation of tingling or goosebumps, which is commonly considered to be relaxing. As opposed to the short chill which can be experienced through music, ASMR can induce a long-lasting pleasant sensation – which probably explains why it is used by millions of people.

Isochronic Tones

Isochronic Tones are an effective method of brainwave entrainment.

They are short sounds which are repeated in quick succession. They are equally spaced and of equal length and volume. The speed is dependent upon the frequency of the targeted brainwaves. To induce a state of relaxation, for example, both brain hemispheres must be synchronised to the Alpha frequency, which is around ten Herz. This means that the impulse signal must be repeated ten times per second.

Solfeggio Harmonics

Solfeggio Harmonics are ancient tunings and frequencies that address specific health issues.

For instance, 528Hz is known as the frequency of love and is reputed to repair DNA. Other frequencies address imbalances of individual organs. Solfeggio Harmonics are used in Vibrational Sound Therapy, where special tuning forks provide relief from pain, anxiety, insomnia, and used to induce a feeling of harmony and well-being.

Sound healing and its clinical relevance is currently being widely researched.

Music

We all know that music can influence our mood and emotions.

It can soothe and comfort us and press just the right buttons to make us feel happy, sad, relaxed, or even excited. It has the power to transport us back to our childhood within seconds or to put us on an emotional rollercoaster ride.

Music can even have a positive effect on our health and our capacity for learning. SonicTonic uses music to exert a specific influence on the mind and as a vehicle for transporting other mind-changing techniques within the framework of Receptive Sound Therapy.
