What Is Brainwave Entrainment
Brainwave entrainment is a method to stimulate the brain into entering a specific state by using a pulsing sound, light, or electromagnetic field. The pulses elicit the brain’s frequency response, encouraging the brainwaves to align to the frequency of a given beat.
On the positive side, this same mechanism is commonly used to induce many brainwave states; such as a trance, enhanced focus, relaxation, meditation or sleep induction. The brainwave entrainment effectively pushes the entire brain into a certain state.
Brainwave entrainment works for almost everybody. It is a great way to lead our mind into states that we might usually have difficulty reaching, allowing us to experience what those states feel like.
Brainwave Entrainment History
Brainwave entrainment began in the 1920’s with Hans Berger who discovered electroencephalography (EEG) and also the Alpha brainwave.
There is ample evidence that ancient cultures also practiced forms of brainwave manipulation, albeit in a much more low-tech fashion than what we have available to us today.
Spoken incantations, drumbeats, and repeated mantras were all used by shamans and other initiates the world over, to induce higher levels of consciousness, personal development and gnosis.
There is something powerful about the vibratory experience those sounds create. Some may even call the outcome transformative.
We have to remember everything is energy, including sound.
In the 20th century, we see the introduction of EEG equipment and strobe lights used by scientists to reproduce positive brainwave effects with the hopes of curing a host of mental and physical disorders.
Literally hundreds of studies have been completed since the 1960’s involving the use of audio and visual stimulation on brainwaves for both practical purposes and the psychological and even psychical effects they might influence.
Benefits of Brainwave Entrainment
Experiments have been conducted to test how brainwave entrainment can impact things. Here is a list of some benefits from using brainwave entrainment technology.

- Lessen the need for anesthesia during dental work
- Stress and anxiety reduction
- Body chemistry regulation (DHEA, serotonin levels, etc.)
- Achievement of higher states of consciousness
- Whole-brain functioning
- Effortless and deep meditation
- Improved receptivity to affirmations and hypnosis
- More powerful visualizations
- Release of positive endorphins and neurochemicals
- Stimulation of HGH and other anti-aging hormones
- Increased spiritual awareness and access into the subconscious
- Increased IQ
- Improvement of short-term and long-term memory
- Development of new neural pathways in the brain
- Deep relaxation
- Increased capacity for empathy and compassion
- Improvement in symptoms of mental disorders (ADD/ADHD/Autism/etc.)
- Mastery over one’s emotional states and internal dialogue
- Improvement in sleep patterns/better night’s rest
- Enhanced ability to manifest goals and use the law of attraction
- Access into the various brainwave states at the touch of a button
- Resetting of the brain’s sodium/potassium ratio
Isochronic Tones and Binaural Beats
With the widespread use of psychedelics in the 1960’s and the West’s newfound affinity for ancient meditation-based cultures, the interest in mind expansion techniques fueled the increased use of Binaural Beats, and later, Isochronic Tones to become the basis for most modern entrainment methods.
In the earliest experiments have found positive correlations between use of Binaural Beats at calibrated frequencies, and physical and mental benefits like reduced stress, reduced cortisol levels, and increases in certain “good” hormones.
If Binaural Beats technology sounds revolutionary, it is only surpassed by the introduction of Isochronic tones for use in brainwave entrainment.
The majority of studies that showed positive outcomes on areas like enhanced creativity, pain relief, and behavioral disorders in the last 30 years used Isochronic tones in their tests.
The technology of isochronic tones allows you to finally achieve the immense benefits of meditation without the years of frustration in practice. Whether you desire spiritual growth, physical healing, or mental clarity, science-backed brain training is the ultimate path to success.
Founder of MP3 Meditation Club
Katrina is the Founder of MP3 Meditation Club. Between 2000 and 2007, she was a yoga coach, and in 2006 she started working with binaural beats, isochronic tones, and other brainwave entrainment tools.
She learned how to create high-quality audio recordings engineered to target different areas of the brain based on the extensive research available. In using the recordings herself, she found she became more focused, and also driven to share her success with others!
So they invested heavily in research and developed hundreds of brainwave tracks, which they then tested with the help of interested people. They now offer you the best-performing meditation mp3’s from those trials, and continue to develop new tracks to meet the diverse needs of their customers.
Different frequencies cause the brain to react in different ways so it’s paramount to match up the correct tones with the outcomes you want to achieve. For example, if you are trying to get a deep relaxing sleep in, you don’t want to use frequencies that will ramp up your energy levels before bed.
MP3 Meditation Club Programs
There is fortunately a wealth of research available on audio brainwave therapy, and in particular Isochronic tones.
They engineered their dozens of isochronic meditation programs based on the findings from published brainwave entrainment studies. They use the exact frequencies cited for having achieved specified outcomes, and test each program for effectiveness.
MP3 Meditation Club is passionate about meditation and self-development and committed to helping people navigate the esoteric.
There are more than 75 different brainwave entrainment subjects offered by MP3 Meditation Club, and each one helps with a different problem.
Some of the most common uses include reducing stress, exploring altered states of consciousness, enhancing creativity for art or one’s career, optimizing physical performance, getting more out of yoga, getting better quality sleep, and improving mood.
Based on the findings in the available research, 60 minutes a day is recommended for enjoying the benefits of Isochronics. It’s also said that as the brain becomes more “entrained”, that shorter sessions, like 20 minutes become just as effective.
Further, their findings at MP3 Meditation Club and feedback from their customers says that certain programs they offer such as “Power Nap” and “Increase Energy” work immediately with only 20-30 minute sessions. (However, 60 minutes does appear to do even better for these cases).
Their products rest on a strong foundation of tried-and-tested methodology and the inherent property of isochronic tones to induce a number of far-reaching benefits. There are more Testimonials available at their Website if you love to read them.
Every program has a sample you can listen to before you buy. And the best is it provides No-Risk GUARANTEE 100% Money Back within 60 days if you are not satisfied with their products.
As we have learnt the importance of raising our vibration in one of my blog post on the Benefits Of High Frequency and also have learnt that listen to high frequency music is one of the way to help to raise our vibration in my another blog post How to Increase Your Vibration.
Therefore, what kind of music we listen to do affect our mood and perception too. So learn to love yourself by stimulating all your five senses with high frequency energy!

This is so cool, Janet. I had never heard of influencing my brainwaves. Yet, from your article I understand I do it a lot by listening to my type of music. Great!
LOL, at first I thought you had made a typo, but that’s the name of the program, entrainment. Clever merge of 2 different words. 🙂
Hi Hannie. Yes, what we listen to do have influence to our brainwaves because sound is energy and we are energy too!
For people who have suffer from stress, anxiety, problem with sleep, etc can consider use this sound therapy to do self healing. At least there is a solution can consider first before go straight for the medication. To me, to rely on medication as less as possible is the best.
There are people use this sound therapy to help to lift up their vibration, their mood.
Same here! I also did check on the dictionary on this word “entrainment” to confirm it’s not a typo, LOL 🙂
This is a awesome article on Brainwaves entrainment. It’s really helps in spiritual awareness also in accessing our subconscious state where you engage in things beyond the physical realm.
And at that point your whole mind, body and soul get relax and get engage with the “you” in you.
It’s something everyone must learn/train to experience because it comes with great benefits.
Hi Mcheals. Thank you for sharing your thought and experience 🙂
All the best to you!
In the early 2000s I was feeling extremely stressed and one of the things I tried using to relieve that stress was listening to a meditation CD.
Same idea with balancing the brainwaves, talk about a great way to relax after coming home from work. I would lay on the floor and put on my headphones just listening to it for 30 minutes.
I recommend others try the same.
Hi Les. Thank you and appreciate you for sharing your experience!
All the best to you 🙂
I’m always curious about binaural beats. Been trying a few tracks on YouTube and I’ll say that they do help me to relax.
Great to know another good program where I can explore more options. I don’t mind paying if they work for me.
Hi Kenny. Yes, binaural beats is not a normal kind of music as it helps to works on our sub-conscious in a positive way.
Therefore, there are people listening to these kind of music for the purpose of increase their vibration and healing.
Nowadays, we have to be careful of the kind of music or song we listen to as it can have an impact to our mind negatively.
You can explore on their programs and try them since they do provide 100% money back guarantee if you think it doesn’t work for you. Enjoy your exploration 🙂
Brain entrainment sounds like a wonderful way to enter into different states. I’ve certainly heard of it, especially binaural beats.
I love the idea you can create new neural pathways which is great for creativity.
Do you need to wear headphones for isochronic tones or is that just for binaural beats? Thanks for sharing.
Headphones are not required for Isochronic tones (unlike Binaural Beats, which do require headphones), but most of their customers personally prefers headphones, of the over-the-ear variety (not earbuds).
They also recommend one session a day; two would be the maximum and they urge people using 2 sessions to put several hours between each one.
Hope the above information help! Enjoy! 🙂
Thanks for this article, I always learn something new from your sharing.
To be honest, this is my first time knowing there are tracks for brainwave which is cool to me since I know so little about the human brain.
I went to their website to try some samples, some keep me calm and feel peaceful although it’s not my type of tracks that I listen to in my daily life.
I also have the same feeling as Hannie did when I first read the title of this article and haha it’s not a typo at all. Another new term learned today!
Thanks for sharing,
Hi Matt. You are most welcome!
People usually listening to this kind of music for some purpose like healing, lift up their positive mood and vibration, to help focus and concentration, etc. You don’t listen to it for hours like your other kind of tracks you use to listen in your daily life.
In fact, they recommend one session a day. One session can be just 30min or even shorter if you feel the shift already. And two sessions would be the maximum and they urge people using 2 sessions to put several hours between each one.
It’s like taking vitamin and mineral. You take for just enough that your body need will be helpful. Over doses don’t do you good.
Oh yes, you refering to the word “entrainment” right. English words sometimes are really interesting. 🙂
