The Science Behind BrainTap™

The Scientifically-Proven Way to Relax, Reboot, and Revitalize  

What is brainTap™?

After decades of careful research, we’ve developed a truly novel concept in BrainTap — a powerful, effective tool designed to help people achieve perfectly balanced brainwave states that enhance production of all the necessary neurotransmitters needed for optimal, integrated function of body and mind to reach your peak potential.

Backed by neuroscience and research, “braintapping” is proven to help people who experience high stress, difficulty sleeping, low energy, and other lifestyle challenges. Our exclusive, proprietary braintapping technology has been extensively fine-tuned to create the perfect symmetry of sound, music, and spoken word for the ultimate brainwave training and relaxation experience.

Unlike meditation apps, BrainTap’s copyrighted neuro-algorithm produces brainwave entrainment — the synchronization of brainwaves to a specialized sound — with no user effort. The result is a complete spectrum of brainwave activity. Using this matrix of neuro-activity, each session is uniquely encoded to ensure maximum neuroplasticity — the brain’s ability to form new neural connections — resulting in a reorganized, flexible, and resilient brain.

Experience deeper sleep, increased mental clarity, and reduced stress levels

Make your Brainwaves work for you

To better understand how our cutting-edge technology optimizes your brain’s peak potential, it is useful to understand how your mind and body runs while in the 5 brain states: Gamma, Beta, Alpha, Theta, and Delta.


focused, concentration, problem solving


Awake, alert and active state; the only state where negative emotions and pain are experienced!


Intuitive; learning, categorizing, organizing, and storing information, calm and restful


creative; inventive, problem solving, early sleep, “super consciousness”


deep sleep, dreaming state; restorative, healing state

Feel less stressed out, calmer, and more able to lead your best life

Our 5 proven modalities

To enhance your mental, emotional, and physical state, brainwave entrainment leans on five key modalities: Binaural Beats, Guided Visualizations, Holographic Music, Isochronic Tones, and Light Stimulation of Retinal and Ear Meridians. These unique (yet connected) processes entrain the brain, syncing it into alpha and theta states, creating a symphony of brainwave activity. This beautifully precise, balanced mentality evokes a feeling of serene focus that is optimal for taking in new information and productivity. 

Binaural Beats

When two tones, separated by only a few Hertz in frequency, are introduced — one in each ear — the brain perceives a third, unique tone. Binaural beats create this phantom frequency, which the brain then mimics.  For example, if you play a 220 Hz carrier tone in your left ear and a 226.5 Hz carrier tone in your right, your brain perceives the difference between the two. This subtle beat frequency (6.5 Hz) is the same frequency associated with deep, meditative states. 

Your brain naturally follows this frequency — putting you in a deeply relaxed state. Our binaural beat sessions have been shown to aid in curbing anxiety, enhancing subjective attention in ADHD,  and improving mood, memory and creativity.

Guided Visualization

Guided visualization is a form of relaxation that helps create a harmonious connection between the mind and body by utilizing one’s imagination. Individuals set aside a period for relaxation, during which he or she contemplates mental images depicting a desired result or goal. This exercise is done during our spoken-word sessions to help the listener envision a consistent image (either literal or symbolic) of the results desired from the session.

Visualization has been studied for decades, having been shown to have the power to affect mental states, improve physical and athletic performance, and even heal the body. And when combined with the other elements of BrainTap, these effects are increased and optimized.

Holographic Music

Aiding our guided meditation sessions is 10-cycle holographic music, a sonic technology that produces a 360-degree sound environment. This environment generates an optimal receptive learning state; your visualizations become more realistic and achievable in your mind, helping you take in the full power of your desired brain imagery.

Isochronic Tones

When it comes to brain entrainment, isochronic tones are a very effective tool to help induce myriad desirable mental states. They are single tones that sound on and off at calculated intervals, so your brainwaves sync with the frequency that you’re listening to.

Light Stimulation of Retinal and Ear Meridians
(Headset User Exclusive)

In addition to the sonic effects of braintapping, pulsing light — in the correct pattern and intensity — can produce incredible levels of deep relaxation, enhancing serotonin and endorphin levels. The BrainTap headset delivers gentle IR and NIR light pulses that travel through the retina and ear meridians, transporting you into unparalleled brain states. This method has been scientifically proven to have extensive health benefits, including anti-inflammatory effects, improved energy production, and pain reduction.

Frequently asked questions

With the BrainTap Headset visor over your closed eyes and headphones over your ears, you are immersed in a perfect mixture of light and sound frequencies. Your eyes will be treated to a beautiful light show while you listen to specially designed music and the guided BrainTap Technology process. This all combines to enhance your experience and invite a higher degree of alpha/theta brainwave activity.

Some people may experience colorful geometric patterns while others may lose track of the lights completely. The light and sound pulse rate shifts from wide-awake beta to a dreamy drowsy state of theta as the session progresses. Using the science of frequency following response (FFR), your brainwave activity will follow the pulse rate of the Neuro-Sensory Algorithms. At the same time, your mind rehearses the changes or improvements you desire for your life.

The BrainTap system is designed to program behaviors so they become natural, unconscious, and automatic. You know how to drink water. You know which foods are more natural for your body. You know what exercise is. You already have these abilities. Our focus is not to give you these abilities but rather to give you a response to those abilities, thus creating responsibility. In other words, it gives you the access to the abilities you already possess! BrainTap provides the motivation, the determination, and the drive to succeed. It’s a common experience that what the mind thinks about the mind brings about. The BrainTap headset is designed to help you to get into that powerful brain wave state where you can impress upon your mind the results you want in life.

Over 90 percent of those trying the BrainTap headset for the first time report feeling refreshed and energized right after the first process. While individual results will vary, many people report feeling more positive and motivated after just a session or two.

The best brainwave entrainment is auditory as well as visual. Environmental sounds and music have been used for centuries in almost all cultures to create an altered state of consciousness. For example, native tribes used drums, chants, and environmental sounds like wind and rain to provide strong mental pictures and associations. There is a reason we find it relaxing to sit by the ocean and listen to waves crashing to shore or the sound of a stream as it trickles over rocks. These pleasant sounds tend to generate alpha brainwave activity naturally.

In today’s frenetic culture, though, we rarely get to enjoy nature’s relaxing effects. For this reason, each session is encoded so that on a daily basis you can get a perfectly synchronized experience similar to that which nature provides. Plus, because the program is encoded into the digital audio file, you can use the BrainTap headset with any of today’s high quality music players, such as the iPod or iPad, to ensure the best possible sound quality.

The music you hear on every BrainTap Technology process was composed specifically to complement the alpha/theta brainwave entrainment. The music is designed to create a full 360-degree experience that floods your mind with beautiful images and peaceful thoughts.

Today, people spend thousands enhancing their bodies, but do nothing to improve the quality of their thoughts. The truth is, we can accomplish far more by managing brainwave activity and mentally rehearsing the positive, productive and healthy lifestyle we all want. Now, it couldn’t be easier because the benefits of the BrainTap headset can be virtually limitless.

  1. Deep relaxation stimulates the production of natural, stress and tension-relieving neurotransmitters, such as endorphins.
  2. Helps change unwanted behaviors and habits, including those contributing to smoking and over-eating.
  3. Balances the brain’s right and left hemispheres, inspiring both focus and creativity.
  4. Promotes relaxation, which contributes to maintaining healthy sleep.
  5. Brings more blood flow to the brain for clearer thinking and better concentration.
  6. Alleviates negative mind chatter and enhances motivation and performance.
  7. Decreases or eliminates jet lag.
  8. And last, but certainly not least, provides a natural ability to put stress in its place!


The majority of users report stress relief through deep relaxation, maintaining healthy sleep patterns, improved memory, improved learning skills such as concentration and recall of information, a sense of calm, increased focus, lucid dreaming, and increased physical energy. Please be aware that while the BrainTap Headset is designed to help you reach your full potential, we cannot guarantee your results. Please understand that results will vary from person to person.
