What Is Brainwave Entrainment?

Let’s explain the word 'entrainment' with a simple physics experiment.

Try striking a tuning fork, then putting a second tuning fork next to it. The second tuning fork starts vibrating at the exact same frequency as the first.

This is a wonderful phenomenon in the world of science, and it's known as the Frequency Follow Response (FFR) - or entrainment. It's another way of saying: "Follow the leader!"

The same thing happens with the brain. If you expose it to a certain frequency, your brainwaves will follow that frequency. This is called brainwave entrainment.

In other words, if your brain was exposed to a 10Hz frequency, your brainwave patterns would shift toward that frequency. In turn, that would bring about a state of calm, detached relaxation.

That's what brainwave entrainment is: a method of influencing your brainwave patterns, and ultimately changing your state, on-demand.
