Neuroscience Expert Explains Connection Between Brainwaves and Your Emotional Health; and How to Embrace the Power of Your Most Vital Mental Instrument for a Better Love Life

By Dr. Patrick K. Porter, Ph.D.

There’s no denying that love makes most of us feel everything from happy, distracted and passionate to crazy, tired and pretty much everything else under the sun. So, it should come as no surprise that being in love can do quite a number on our brains and bodies.

Studies show that those couples that incorporate a technology method called brainwave entrainment–also known as brainwave training–into their daily lives report significant stress relief through deep relaxation. In fact, many of these couples say the method also helps them maintain healthier sleep patterns, gives them a boost in physical energy and focus, provides improved memory and learning skills, and a better overall sense of calm and happiness in their romantic relationships.

In my clinical experience, I have observed that those couples that use brainwave entrainment as part of their regular routine find it easier to de-stress while also achieving emotional, mental and physical balance. Unlike traditional meditation programs, brainwave entrainment’s neuro-algorithms naturally and gently guide the brain through an array of brainwave patterns–and the result is a complete spectrum of brainwave activity, which provides better insights into love and our relationships. 

Brainwave training is an easy (and fast) way to relax and reboot and helps couples that may be experiencing high stress and communication issues, difficulty sleeping, low energy or other lifestyle challenges, recharge and revitalize their relationships.  

Many couples I have worked with over the years say that the calming, rejuvenating effects of even just 10 to 20 minutes of this method helps balance their nervous system and protect against common stressors of everyday life, including their relationship challenges.

Creating Feelings of Calm, Focus and Healing

Backed by neuroscience and research, training your brainwaves helps guide the brain from an awake, reactionary mind into an intuitive, creative state, and then to a place where super-learning and healing occur–the outcome is a heightened state of consciousness with crystal clear focus. The practice, also often referred to as “braintapping,” creates a symphony of brainwave activity, and feelings of calm focus that’s ideal for learning, productivity, healing and clarity.

So, how does it work?

Our brainwaves mimic the pulse rates of the sounds to which we’re exposed. By listening to varied frequencies and holographic music, you can reboot your brain to a healthy, balanced state of relaxation and revitalization. The science behind training your brainwaves relies on four critical elements that enable technology to induce brainwave entrainment. The four components include binaural beats, guided visualization, 10-cycle holographic music and isochronic tones. 

Braintapping uses auditory and visual stimulation to synchronize and balance brainwaves. As the light and sound frequency changes, so does the frequency in the brain. The process also stabilizes the limbic system, which is involved in motivation, emotion, learning and memory. 

Following a brainwave training session, the body is calmed, your breathing becomes rhythmic, your hands become warmer and your muscles begin to relax. In addition, the light and sound stimulation boost your brain’s levels of serotonin, beta-endorphin and norepinephrine–the same chemicals that are released during a romantic attraction and make us giddy, energetic and euphoric

Harness the Power of Braintapping to Enhance Your Romantic Relationship

As human beings, we all strive to seek fulfilling relationships, the type that uplift us and bring us joy. In my clinical and personal experience, I can attest that we are all capable of finding true love and building lasting, rewarding relationships.

While you’re enjoying some time with your significant other this Valentine’s Day, take a moment to explore the science of love by experimenting with brainwave training. If you follow through by tapping into the latest technology, you and your partner will find, as many others have discovered, that the approach can transform your relationship on a much deeper level.
