What is a theta brainwave state?
The human brain produces electromagnetic waves during different activities. These waves are divided into four frequencies categories: alpha, beta, delta, and theta.
In the theta state, the brain is no longer focused on sensory perception, but rather is directed toward the subconscious. In this state, new mental patterns can be formed as the brain processes information. The theta state enables learning, healing, and growth.
What is the theta chamber?
Humans are not generally able to strongly bias their brainwave activity in favor of a single frequency category. Thus, the theta chamber was developed in 1988 by Loran Swensen. It induces a theta brainwave state in an individual in as little as 2-3 minutes. Specific frequencies are carefully selected for each person and those frequencies are then transmitted throughout every aspect of the Theta Chamber, all the way down to the mat the client lies on.
Theta chamber treatment
Treatment using the theta chamber utilizes four primary modalities:
- Cranial Electrotherapy Stimulation (CES): This modality helps a client to overcome repetitive, unhealthy behaviors and habits, including many addictions. It is also effective in treating mental/emotional instabilities such as depression, anxiety and PTSD. CES creates a deep relaxation that increases suggestibility and allows new ideas and subconscious thoughts to surface.
- Binaural Beats, or Entrainment: The beats in the background of music have the effect of synchronizing the cerebral hemispheres. This creates opportunities for new neural pathways to form.
- Visual Light Pattern Stimulation: Light patterns are generated at the same customized frequency as the Binaural Beats to quickly induce and maintain the theta state. This modality opens the brain the suggestion and entrainment and promotes specific healing rhythms.
- Vestibular Motion: The spinning of the theta chamber throws off the brain’s natural sense of time and space, all while enhancing the flow of the body’s biomagnetic field. The spinning causes the inner ear to balance and produces a floating sensation, which relaxes the body.
These four modalities together, while used consecutively, have one outcome and goal: to help people take back the power of their own thoughts and achieve health though patterns and mental well-being.
