Theta Technology treats anxiety, stress, depression, insomnia, and addictions of all kinds using multiple, powerful treatments in a comfortable, relaxing environment.

Designed to bring the brain into a Theta state, subtle pulses or “beats” are created when slightly offset tones are played through headphones. This effect was discovered in 1839 by Heinrich Wilhelm Dove. The effect on brainwaves depends on the difference in frequencies of each tone: for example, if 300 Hz was played in one ear and 310 in the other, then the binaural beat would have a frequency of 10 Hz.

 

The beats synchronize the cerebral hemispheres and help produce the correct conditions for neural pathway re-establishment (also known as “entrainment”). Deep relaxation during treatment is the result.

 

Visual Pattern Light Stimulation

Light patterns are computer-generated and calibrated to synchronize with the binaural beats to (1) quickly induce the Theta state, (2) open the brain to suggestion and entrainment, and (3) promote specific healing rhythms. Light and sound sensory stimulation access the brain through the thalamus, which is directly connected to the cortex. Light and sound rhythms and patterns can easily influence cortical activity, and can also affect neuronal activity when synchronized correctly. The Theta Technology uses computer technology to precisely generate and synchronize these light and sound patterns together with microcurrent signaling (see below) for maximum positive effect.

Microcurrent Signaling

This FDA-cleared treatment uses precisely tuned, subtle electrical impulses to affect the neural networks and neurochemistry of the brain, encouraging normal function. These electric signals are similar to those produced by the brain itself. As an electro-chemical instrument, the brain constantly both produces and receives a wide variety of signals, from one region of the brain to another, and through the nervous system to all parts of the body.

Facts About ThetaChamber℠Technology

The ThetaChamber℠ is designed to administer multiple, powerful treatment applications in a single session. These applications are designed to accomplish three main objectives:

 

  1. Induce a “Theta” brainwave state, opening the brain to suggestion, learning and healing

  2. Signal the hypothalamus to return to producing normal levels of serotonin, dopamine and other neurotransmitters

  3. Encourage the brain to create and use new, normal neural pathways (also known as “entrainment”). These various treatment applications, known as “modalities,” work together synergistically to provide maximum effectiveness. Modalities currently available in the ThetaChamber℠ are:

  • Binaural Audio Beats (induces Theta state, assists in entrainment)

  • Visual pattern light stimulation (induces Theta state, assists in entrainment)

  • Vestibular (motion) stimulation (induces Theta state, assists in entrainment)

  • Microcurrent signaling (signals the hypothalamus to recalibrate brain chemistry)

  • Audio relaxation tracks (provides positive affirmations and promotes relaxation)

When all these forms of therapy are combined and synchronized, they elicit a very powerful and pronounced neurological and physiological response. Feelings of well-being are almost immediate for many clients, often starting the very first day! Some report deep sleep and vivid dreams for the first time in years.​
