Binaural Beats

zen vida Binaural Beats

Binaural beats are a form of auditory illusion perceived when two slightly different frequencies are presented separately to each ear. The brain perceives a third tone which is the mathematical difference between the two frequencies, creating the illusion of a rhythmic beat. This phenomenon is known as the “binaural beat.”

For example, if a tone of 200 Hz is presented to one ear and 210 Hz to the other, the brain will perceive a binaural beat frequency of 10 Hz. This perceived beat is often used in conjunction with relaxation or meditation practices.

People use binaural beats for various purposes, including relaxation, stress reduction, improved sleep, enhanced focus, and even altered states of consciousness. However, scientific research on the effectiveness of binaural beats for these purposes is mixed. While some studies suggest potential benefits, more research is needed to fully understand the impact and mechanisms behind binaural beats.

It’s important to note that binaural beats should not be used by individuals with certain medical conditions, such as epilepsy, or those prone to seizures. If you have any health concerns or conditions, it’s advisable to consult with a healthcare professional before using binaural beats or any other forms of brainwave entrainment.
