Brainwave Frequencies Guide

Your Different Mental States, Measured By Your Brainwave Frequency

Through the advancement of neurological research, we are now able to accurately identify what frequency ranges our brainwaves are in, during certain mental states.

For example:

  • Gamma 40+ Hz is experienced during extreme alertness, high energy and times of intense focus.
  • Beta' 12hz – 40hz, is the most common mental state for most of us when we are awake during the day.
  • The ‘Alpha' range is between 8hz – 12hz, and in this state we are awake but relaxed, and not processing much information.
  • During light sleep or deep relaxation we are usually in between the 4hz to 8hz range. Also known as ‘Theta'.
  • When we are in a deep sleep, our brainwave frequency is usually very low, between 0 hz to 4hz which is also referred to as ‘Delta'.

With this knowledge and more in depth research, we are now able to develop brainwave entrainment programs, to match the frequency range of our desired mental state, and produce brainwave synchronization.

Gamma waves function at the highest and fastest range in the brain at 40+ Hz.

Inspired Thinking and  Increased Concentration

The Gamma state is experienced during super high levels of focus, and periods of peak cognitive functioning.

Stimulating Gamma waves can also help induce an intense state of energy, and mind alertness.

Beta 12hz – 40hz, is the most common mental state for most of us when we are awake during the day. However, many people don't experience enough Beta activity in their brain, which can cause emotional or mental disorders such as depression, ADD and insomnia.

Brain Health Booster

Stimulating Beta activity can improve emotional stability, concentration, alertness and energy levels.

The Alpha range is between 8hz – 12hz, and in this state we are awake but relaxed and not processing much information.

Stress and Anxiety Reduction

The Alpha state is a very calming and enjoyable state of consciousness to be in.  It's where you want to be if you are feeling stressed and anxious.  This can be effortlessly achieved with our range of Alpha entrainment programs.

Stimulate Creativity and Heighten Intuition

Creative people like artists, designers and musicians, often naturally produce a very high amount of Alpha waves.  You can tap into this creative power and energy by stimulating your brainwaves to an predominantly Alpha state through entrainment.


The Alpha brainwave range is also a prime state for visualization techniques.

The Theta brainwave state ranges between 4 – 8 Hz, and is usually experienced during light sleep or extreme relaxation.

Deep Relaxation and Meditation

With practice and experience it is possible to reach the Theta state through meditation, but you can speed up this process with Mind Amend's brain entrainment programs.

Hypnosis and Self Programming

The Theta state can also be used to change habits, with hypnosis and self-programming using pre-recorded suggestions.  Hypnosis practitioners will try to get you into a deep state of relaxation, but for many of us this is hard to achieve.  By listening to our brainwave entrainment music your brain can be guided into a relaxed Theta state with ease.

Improve Long Term Memory and Learning Ability

Theta is a state that's perfect for absorbing new information, that can be stored in your long-term memory.

Children spend much of their early years in the Theta state, which is why they are able to consume huge amounts of new information in such a short space of time.   As adults we can recapture our early learning abilities through Theta brainwave entrainment.

Delta waves are the slowest of all brainwave frequencies and range between 0 – 4 Hz.  If your dominant brainwave frequency is Delta you are in a deep sleep.

For Healing and Sleep

It's during this deep Delta state that your body does it's best healing, and replenishes itself.  Which is why it's so important to try and get a great nights sleep.

However, in today's busy and hectic lifestyle, it's often not that easy to get a good nights.  At least not as often as you'd like.  By using our Delta brainwave programs you can get your brain into a Delta state with ease.

Listening to just one hour of Delta entrainment can be like the equivalent of getting 3-4 hours of normal sleep.

Access Your Subconscious Mind

The Delta state can also be used to access your subconscious, for powerful reprogramming and the deepest forms of meditation.
