What are Alpha and Theta Brain-waves?


   Alpha is a relaxed concentrated state of mind typical of a brain wave around 7 cycles/second (7 Hz). It allows total concentration and synchronization of the left and right brains. This is the proper state for reading, listening and other forms of information input.

   Theta is an even more restful state of mind typical of a brain wave around 3 cycles/second (3 Hz). This state is the best for memorization, creativity and problem solving. You can learn how to use these brain wave frequencies easily, effortlessly and efficiently.

Alphalearning clients are capable of
controlling their brainwaves in 4 major frequencies:

DELTA  = 1-2 Hertz (cycles per second)
Deep physical relaxation, pain control & stress release.

THETA = 3-5 Hertz (cycles per second)
Memory, both memorization and recall and IQ growth.

ALPHA = 7-9 Hertz (cycles per second)
Learning, reading and listening.

BETA = 12-14 Hertz (cycles per second)
Decision making, logic and problem solving.

   Using the appropriate wave frequency for each part of learning, i.e., listening versus memorizing is the key to accelerated learning and increased retention. Once an individual has "learned" the appropriate frequencies they can use them at will whenever a particular function is needed. Extensive use of computerized optical-acoustical brainwave training equipment and electroencephalograph analysis enable each person to track their daily progress during the course.

GEO: "The computer is the new guru. The new Brainwave can achieve rapid and dramatic increases in intelligence and reading speed, stress management and sporting performance."

" You can now train your brain to achieve any desired frequency with Brainwave"

Michael Hutchinson; Megabrain (# 1 book on brain technology):

"Only those Zen monks who have meditated for more than 20 years are able to enter the Alpha - Theta states at will."

Maxwell Cade; The Awakened Mind (over 4,500 EEG’s tested):

"To achieve an Alpha frequency of 9 Hz requires two to five years of meditation experience. With ten to twenty years of practice, we find the Alpha frequency around 7 Hz."

BRAINWAVE II achieves within days what has previously been believed to require 10 to 20 years.
