Meditation in Minutes

BrainTap Technology Designed to Shift Brain to Theta State




We are a nation of overstimulated people, and that’s bad news for our bodies. Our fast-paced digital lifestyle—combined with constant traffic, crowds and noise, plus financial, family and work pressures and negative political and world news—means that many of us live in a state of chronic stress, which can predispose us to health problems.

“It’s estimated that up to 90 percent of all illness is related to stress,” says Amy Kowal of Reviva Skin and Body Solutions in Fishkill. “Stress goes straight to the body and affects its weakest points, setting off a physiological chain reaction called the fight or flight response. The brainwave pattern remains at beta frequency, or high-alert consciousness, and the adrenal glands go into overdrive and release adrenaline and cortisol, which create acidic conditions that enable disease to thrive. When the brain is constantly on alert, it doesn’t get the downtime required for the immune system to recharge and heal the body.”

Regular meditation is thought to “reboot” the brain by moving it out of beta and into theta frequency—that place between sleep and wakefulness where the mind, no longer judging itself, notifies the body that it’s time to heal. But many people believe they can’t meditate because they can’t quiet their minds long enough to achieve a state of deep relaxation.

Kowal says manual meditation device called BrainTap can help people overcome that obstacle.

Manual reboot

“BrainTap uses sound therapy, light therapy, binaural beats, guided imagery and hypnosis to heal and rewire the way the brain deals with stress, anxiety, depression, trauma, insomnia, disease and any array of issues you may be dealing with that you may not be able to control on your own,” Kowal explains. “It overrides the brain waves to put you into a natural meditative, theta state in three to five minutes—something that can take years of regular, disciplined meditation to achieve.”

Getting the brain into theta allows the body to develop new ways of handling stress without conscious awareness—the way we learned to tie our shoes or ride a bike, she says. “When we move out of fight or flight, we move out of scarcity, lack and loss, victim energy, and get into that place where the immune system can turn back on and stress is regulated, allowing us to get into a state of alignment by repatterning the brain. Because it also works at the root cause of issues, it’s not something you need to keep doing once your brain learns a new pattern.”

The light and sound technology in BrainTap can eliminate unwanted habits, behaviors and thought patterns, and get the brain back to its “original blueprint,” she says. The technology is designed to work three ways simultaneously: 1) fiber optic and LED flashing lights in the eye visor synchronize the left and right hemispheres of the brain and bring it back into balance, enhancing healing and creativity; 2) lights in the earpiece help release emotions stored in the body at the cellular level, increase circulation, calm the nervous system and relax the muscles; and 3) binaural beats and isochronic tones adjust brainwave frequency.

The wearer also listens to a series of 20-to-30-minute audio tracks with subliminal messages intended to impart a new program with new, healthier beliefs. The idea is to imitate a whole sleep cycle in 20 minutes, with effects that last 72 hours.

“Your brain is realigned, your nervous system calms down and you receive messages that create positive ingrained habits and resource states and imprint goals on the subconscious mind,” Kowal says. “Do this two times a week for 30 days, and after 30 days, that program becomes your new normal. You’ll no longer be stressed out, and you’ll be a conscious creator of your own reality.”
