Integrated Sound and Light Relaxation System
In the modern world we live in things are getting faster and faster and more and more stressful which can really take a toll on our health; creating insomnia, depression, fatigue, and sickness. Prescription and recreational drug use is at an all time high along with alcohol and other unhealthy coping mechanisms for stress, but they all have unhealthy side effects. There is a better solution: The Kasina integrated sound and light relaxation system is perhaps best described as a healing spa for your mind and works seamlessly with brain entrainment sounds (both binaural and isochronic tones) to provide you with relaxation frequencies via audio and light that will melt away stress, increase oxygenation in your brain, deepen your ability to relax, help restore healthy sleep, decrease anxiety, improve mood and emotional balance.
What is a light and sound machine?
“A light and sound machine is a brainwave entrainment tool. The method by which this entrainment occurs is known as the Frequency Following Response (FFR). Through the use of audio (headphones) & visual (eye frames with LEDs) stimulation, listeners are gently guided into specific brainwave states. Each audio beat and pulse is a specific frequency. Our minds “think” in terms of frequency. Brainwaves change frequencies based on neural activity within the brain, be it by hearing, touch, smell, vision and/or taste. These senses respond to activity from the environment and transmits that information to the brain via electrical signals. Hearing + vision are considered the favorable senses for affecting brainwaves safely. By presenting these beats & pulses to the brain, within a few minutes, the brain begins to mimic or follow the same frequencies as the stimuli (the beats and pulses). This process is referred to as entrainment. In essence, these instruments speak to the mind in it’s own language – the language of frequency”.
- Excerpt from “Mind States / An Introduction to Light and Sound Technology” by Michael Landgraf, Publisher of the AVS Journal.
Beta-Waves (above 13Hz, at center about 14-16 Hz to 30Hz)
These waves determine brain activity during awake, tense and active conditions. At the forefront is the consciousness, influenced by external stimuli, the processing of mental impressions and critical thinking. Within the constructive beta area, a condition of elevated concentration is present. Elevated frequencies past a certain limit cause destructive conditions such as stress, fear or even panic. Overly elevated beta-wave-shares cause a higher output of stress-hormones. This is generally your normal waking state; attention directed to surroundings. Includes agitated, restless/"monkey mind" states which are especially amenable to treatment with light and sound stimulation.
Alpha-Waves (8-13 Hz)
They appear in a relaxed condition when the eyes are closed in the stage between sleep and waking hours. Characteristics are pleasant relaxation, positive mood and a feeling of “body and spirit” integration.
Theta-Waves (4-8 Hz)
They usually develop during sleep, dreaming and deep meditation. The formation of the sub-consciousness is now active. This zone is characterized by vivid imagination, improved learning and recollection ability, fantasy and intuition.
Delta-Waves (0.5-4 Hz)
They appear mostly during deep-sleep and are rarely experienced during wakening hours. The accompanying psychological conditions are a dreamless sleep, trance and deep-hypnosis. Delta waves are of great importance for healing processes as well as the functioning of the immune system.
The new Kasina SLS AVS utilized 12 LEDs in it's GanzFrame, allowing for 255 shades of each color (red, green, blue). This will give you the ideal light therapy for different times of day and needs. For example, red is associated with the sympathetic nervous system and can be used to energize and stimulate the body. This would be ideal for the morning or anytime you need extra energy and stimulation. Blue is the opposite, it affects the parasympathetic response and helps promote relaxation and rest calming the body and lowering blood pressure, heart rate, breathing, etc. It would be the ideal color for the evening or before bedtime when you want to be relaxed. Green is a general health promoting color and is balanced, so it would not be overly stimulating or relaxing. Its a very good color for the heart and promoting overall health. So the Kasina not only entrains, balances and energizes both sides of the brain, it also gives you color therapy (also called chromotherapy).
