Induce Theta brainwave activity to address depression, anxiety, PTSD, addictions and more.
The Theta Pod uses state of the art technology to bring on this Theta state. With the opportunity to customize your targeted area of treatment, from depression, anxiety and PTSD to focus and concentration to different types of addiction, the Theta Pod creates a unique mental wellness treatment opportunity.
1. Induce a “Theta” brainwave state, opening the brain to suggestion, learning, and healing.
2. Signal the endocrine system to balance the production of serotonin, dopamine, and other neurotransmitters.
3. Encourage the brain to create and use new, neural pathways (also known as “entrainment”).
Light sensory stimulation accesses the brain through the thalamus, which is directly connected to the cortex. Light patterns can easily influence cortical activity and can also affect neuronal activity when synchronized correctly. The Theta Pod℠ uses computer technology to precisely generate and synchronize these lights for maximum positive effect. Light stimulation actively induces a state of deactivation in which the brain is passive, but not asleep; awake, but not involved with the ‘clutter’ of ongoing existence. When Brain-wave activity is synchronous, we have feelings of euphoria, heightened mental powers, creativity, the ability to “get out of your head”, or be ‘in the world but not of the world’.
Binaural beats are designed to bring the brain into a Theta state using subtle pulses or “beats” that are created when slightly offset tones are played through headphones. The cerebral hemispheres are synchronized by the beats and the correct conditions for neural pathway re-establishment (also known as “entrainment”) are produced. The result is deep relaxation for the duration of your session.
The spin in the Theta Pod is approximately 13 rpms, since this velocity synchronizes your body’s natural rotation to the spin of the Earth. The vestibular motion throws off the brain’s natural sense of time and space, and people feel as if they are floating, or rocking. These movements are purposely enhancing the flow in your biomagnetic field.
Microcurrent signaling is also known as cranial electro-stimulation (CES). Controlled studies of CES conducted in the last twenty years have shown it to be effective in alleviating anxiety, depression, insomnia, in withdrawal from drugs and alcohol, and in a variety of other problems. CES is used relax the individual and induce a state of openness and heightened awareness, allowing new ideas, memories, and subconscious material to come to the surface.
The Theta Pod (also known as a Theta Chamber) is the leading modality and crown jewel of Living Well Health Group. Over 20 years in the making, the technology involved in putting this cutting-edge piece of equipment combines the wisdom of the ancients with the technology of the future. The idea of the pod from start to finish is to create for its user, a window into the corridors of his/her own brain that will allow for the possibility of transcendental experiences, to bring about real and lasting change.
First, the pod is designed to induce a person’s brainwave activity into a wavelength scientifically referred to as “Theta” (Hence the name). It is a state of relaxation that is well known to everyone as the drowsy, abstract sensation that one feels as they are falling asleep. This allows the brain to take the majority of its focus off of sensory perception and conscious thought, to withdraw into the more profound regions of mental activity that we now know as the biomagnetic field.
Once we have “digitally” induced meditation, the task of “reprogramming” begins. The brain constantly puts out signals to the body, and since the mind/body connection is a two-way door, we can reverse the process and use the body to attune the brain. There are four main ways in which the Theta Pod uses our body’s sensory perception, to re-attune the brain.
Repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (rTMS), used post Theta Pod or on its own, also helps with building neural pathways by using magnetic coils to pass magnetic pulses from each coil through the brain. This painless therapy is delivered in conjunction with infrared therapy.
