Alpha Brain Waves Information ( 8 to 12Hz) :
•8- 10 Hz Super-learning new information, memorisation, not comprehension.
•8.22 Hz – Associated with the mouth. Brings creativity
•10 Hz – Enhanced serotonin release. Mood elevation, arousal, stimulant
•10 Hz – Provides relief from lost sleep, improves general mood
•10 Hz – Mood elevator. Used to dramatically reduce headaches
•10 Hz – Clarity, subconscious correlation. Releases serotonin
•11 Hz – Relaxed yet awake state
•12 Hz – Centering, mental stability.
•11 – 14 Hz – Increased focus and awareness
•12 – 14 Hz – Learning frequency, good for absorbing information passively
What are alpha brainwaves?
Alpha brain waves are considered relaxed brainwave activity. Alpha brainwaves are brainwaves that cycle within the range of 8 — 12 Hz and are usually generated in the brains right hemisphere or in a synchronized pattern between both right and left hemispheres. Alpha waves kick in when our mind and body are completely relaxed and free of stress.
Alpha is generally thought of as the normal brainwave that is dominant in people who are relaxed,
creative, and have a clear mind. Alpha is considered the “normal” brainwave pattern and is
dominant when people close their eyes. Children tend to have much higher levels of alpha
brainwaves than adults. Alpha brainwaves are considered the healthiest brainwave range and 10Hz has widely been accepted as the “safest” brainwave frequency to train.
Most children and younger teenagers have a dominant alpha rhythm. There isn’t a single brain
wave pattern is better than the others — so don’t think alpha brainwaves are a “cure all.” If your
brain is deficient in the alpha brainwave pattern, increasing them can feel awesome! I can
personally testify based on my experience.
What are the benefits of increasing alpha brainwaves?
•Relaxed body and mind
•Higher levels of creativity
•Improved ability to problem-solve
•Balanced mood (emotional stability)
•Lowered levels of stress & anxiety
•Flow state of consciousness
•”Super learning” ability
•Boosted immune system
•Increased levels of “serotonin”
