Audio/Visual Stimulation is a new, drug-free technique that uses light and sound for relaxation or brain stimulation. Although there has been much research in the many applications of this technique, it is not yet an approved treatment by the American Psychological Association or the American Medical Association.
This technique can be extremely therapeutic for persons suffering from headache, migraine, head injury, some neurological disorders, learning disabilities, ADD/ADHD, anxiety, depression, insomnia and many other stress-related disorders. Audio/Visual Stimulation is not appropriate for anyone with epilepsy or photic epilepsy.
Light and Sound Stimulation, also known as brain wave entrainment, has been found to increase brain activity through computer technology using varied flickering white lights placed over the eyes, and through the use of specified sounds and tones heard while wearing headphones. • More
