What are the primary brainwave frequencies?

Beta, Alpha, Theta, and Delta

BETA 13-30 Hz

This is the wide-awake alert state where you spend most of your waking life. Beta is your reactionary mind. It is the level of your mind where fears, frustrations, and negative emotions are processed. This is also where your strongest filtering system operates. It is called the critical factor. The key purpose of using the BrainTap Headset is to train your mind to get out of this state where stress is dominant.

ALPHA 8-13 Hz

This is the frequency most associated with creativity, imagination, and flow. Alpha is the intuitive mind. It is also the brain state associated with relaxation, tranquility, and daydreaming. Flow thinking, or a state of “inward awareness,” takes place in alpha. It is also known as a super-learning state

THETA 4-8 Hz

This is the breakthrough state where you can reinvent your life. Theta is the inventive mind. It borders on sleep and is a meditative state with access to the other-than-conscious mind where you have higher levels of creativity, learning, and inspiration. It is also the state in which the BrainTap Headset helps you to visualize and realize your goals.

DELTA 1-4 Hz

This is deep, dreamless sleep. Delta is the unconscious mind. The BrainTap Headset is designed to keep you from falling into this state of sleep. This is why the light and sound patterns of the BrainTap Headset system continue to change throughout the session
