The goal of religious, martial arts and healers for at least the past 5,400 years has been to balance the brain. The belief was that the brain, body, mind and emotion were all interconnected and by balancing any one all the others would also become more balanced.
Various techniques (some books claim over 100) have been developed and taught over the years. Tai Chi is a classic example of concentrating on balancing the body to achieve physical and mental harmony.
With the use of Brainwave II a new student of Tai Chi can achieve 3 months progress in 3 days. Aikido is another example of blending physical skills with mental intent. The primary goal here too is balance, initially physical; leading to mental and emotional stability.
Other techniques have been developed such as mantras (repetition of a sound -
Therefore, the concept of a balanced brain and a balanced body influencing each other is at least over 5,000 years old. Over the centuries thousands of "new ideas" have been tried – with highly variable levels of success. One Indian book lists 108 ways. The Wisconsin Nuns used 10 – 15 variations. With such a variety from which to choose anyone can select the technique(s) of preference. From the strenuous (and highly efficient) Aikido or Tai Chi to the passive mantra meditations, they all work.
All will guide the brain/body connection towards balance and stability. Therefore, for thousands of years, the benefits of brain balancing exercises have been evident.
The questions were, however,
How did the techniques work?
Why did the techniques work?
What was the theory?
What was really happening?
No one knew.
In 1992 the Alphalearning began experiments with a new type of EEG, tens of thousands of times more sensitive than un-
The evidence was absolutely overwhelming, the more balanced the brain, the more successful the executive – in all ways. Higher office, more responsibility, staff loyalty: all signs of success and all had more balanced brains. There had been a theory since 1976 by Prof. Mintzberg at Harvard that the left-
The Alphalearning study proved it beyond discussion. The lawyer/accountants really are "left-
Next, the Alphalearning tested the EEG on athletes; beginners, mid-
It is even the normal language, "he is really out of balance", "there is a balanced guy".
The evidence really came in 1994 when Scientific American published the first photos in color of the activity of the brain. It was now evident where in the brain thought was occurring. Top researchers in the field believe Western science could use Eastern introspection, or meditative techniques, to deepen its understanding of how the brain works and to provide practical help to people in distress. In a host of fields, Tibetan practices have subsequently proven valid when science finally developed technology sophisticated enough to test them.
They wanted an electronic high-
The client also receives as a fringe benefit, Alpha and Theta wave control, increased reading and memory skills, etc., however, the objective is brain balance. That is now possible in days rather than years. No difference in the result, only in the time required to achieve the result.
