Old Fashioned Brainwave Entrainment Audio
Restful Tones mjp3's are a progressive form of music therapy specifically designed to be restful, calming, and soothing.
Restful Tones mp3’s are therapeutic brainwave brainwave entrainment mp3’s embedded with specific tones (frequencies, sounds…) known as binaural beats, isochronic tones, or monaural beats which are very specific frequencies that we have combined with a wide-variety of ambient sounds, nature sounds, and relaxation/meditation music etc. When brainwave entrainment frequencies are combined with a wide-variety of nature sounds, ambient sounds, or relaxation music, the end result is nothing short of stunning.
Restful Tones brainwave entrainment mp3’s can potentially help guide your mind into targeted dominating brainwaves (beta, alpha, theta, delta, epsilon), and thus potentially induce restful and rejuvenating states of mind associated with those brainwave levels. For example, if we are exposed to a dominant alpha isochronic tones our brainwaves may follow that alpha frequency, and thus induce relaxation which is associated with the alpha brainwave. We have produced remarkably potent and powerful mp3's for effectively calming the mind, soothing the emotions, and relaxing the body.

What Exactly is Brainwave Entrainment?
Brainwave entrainment is highly effective and easily fits into your daily routine.
Brainwave entrainment is the result of comprehensive and lengthy scientific research, which resulted in some remarkable discoveries.
Brainwave entrainment uses these carefully applied sounds known as binaural beats, monaural beats and isochronic tones. These "rhythmic stimuli" can literally alter brainwave frequencies to produce a variety of extremely powerful effects.
To understand how brainwave entrainment music can alter your brainwaves it will be helpful to have a basic understanding of brainwaves.
Brainwaves are produced by electrical impulses in the brain.
The 4 most common brainwaves are beta (13 hz - 30 hz), alpha (8 hz - 12 hz), theta (4 hz - 8 hz), and delta (0.5 hz - 4 hz).
Although all 4 brainwaves are active in the brain at all times, one of these patterns is usually dominant depending on whether you are busy, emotional, relaxing, sleeping etc.
Your dominant brainwave pattern is responsible for your state of awareness at any given moment.
There are also a few other braonwave states: Lambda, Gamma, Epsilon.
Gamma and HyperGamma brainwaves (30 hz - 100 hz) are usually very weak in the average person. However recent studies show that gamma brainwaves have been found to be very strong in Tibetan monks while doing a Loving Kindness meditation.
Lambda brainwaves (100 hz - 200 hz) are very high brainwave frequencies associated with wholeness, integration and mystical experiences. Furthermore, lambda brainwaves have been found to ride on epsilon brainwaves in the range of 0.5 hz or lower. (Recently the brainwaves below 0.5hz have been classified as a separate band called Epsilon.)
This Epsilon state of consciousness (the state Yogi's go into when they achieve "suspended animation") is where western medical doctors can perceive no heart beat, respiration or pulse. HyperGamma and Lambda states of consciousness are the states associated with the ability of certain sects of Tibetan monks who can mediate in the Himalayan mountains in sub-zero temperatures with scanty clothing and melt the snow all around them. High frequency brainwave states are experienced as a result of spiritual awakening, and during deep meditation areas of the brain that are normally dormant become active. (For further reading see Epsilon, Gamma, HyperGamma, Lambda Brainwave Activity).
Following are examples of brainwave activity:
- Throughout the day when you are busy, anxious, high strung, and unable to relax beta is the dominant brainwave activity at that time.
- When you finally begin to relax and/or when you take a quick "power nap" your dominant brainwave activity moves to alpha.
- When you are sleeping and dreaming theta brainwaves are dominant.
- During deep, rejuvenating, dreamless sleep delta brainwaves are the dominant brainwave. (See Brainwave Classification Chart).
Music that incorporates binaural beats, monaural beats or isochronic tones can potentially assist listeners achieve a wide variety of goals, such as more effective meditation, improved sleep, heightened creativity, superior focus and a variety of other improved states of mind.
Restful Tones Brainwave Entrainment audios loop seamlessly, and has been constructed to be flowing and continuous with no breaks in the sound – providing a consistent carrier on which the entrainment can be delivered to the brain.
Our mp3’s have been designed to work effectively with higher intensity entrainment settings, while remaining subtle and enjoyable from a musical perspective utilizing ambient tracks and nature sounds specifically designed for good old fashioned brainwave entrainment.
We have included enough variety (without going overboard) in our various mp3’s with varying degrees of isochronic tones and binaural beats so that you can give yourself a new audio experience each time you sit down to listen to a session. Variety is a great way to exercise the brain, which responds well to novelty.

Training The Mind With Brainwave Entrainment Frequencies
Training the mind with brainwave entrainment frequencies is like training the muscles.
Repetition is important - a little every day, or every other day, (but don't overdo it) and you begin to experience results.
For this reason all our mp3's range from 20 minutes to an hour in length.
Repetition in listening to brainwave sessions supports bringing the body, mind, and soul into a meditative state, where healing occurs. Brainwave entrainment, or BWE, was first used in the late 1800s. It is now experiencing a renaissance among neurologists and mental health professionals, driven in part by recent research findings.
In a recent issue of the journal Alternative Therapies, Dr. Tina L. Huang and Dr. Christine Charyton concluded: "Findings to date suggest that brainwave entrainment is an effective therapeutic tool. People suffering from cognitive functioning deficits, stress, pain, headache/migraines, PMS, and behavioral problems benefited from brainwave entrainment." ('A Comprehensive View of the Psychological Effects of Brainwave Entrainment', Alternative Therapies, September/October 2008) Scientific studies have concluded some remarkable facts about brainwave entrainment. In short, brainwaves, through brainwave entrainment technology, can be employed to literally change a person's mental state. That's right; brainwave entrainment technology can change your state of mind!
Through using Restful Tones mp3's, your brainwaves can be stimulated to specific brainwave levels; results will be heightened with the use of headphones.
Our incorporation of brainwave entrainment will create brainwave levels that are conducive to giving you improved energy and focus, creativity, relaxation, deep inner peace, calmness, reduction in overall stress levels and even heightened intelligence, improved memory and mental clarity.
Our mp3's are designed to produce the same physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual benefits that are experienced during regular meditation practice.
Music that incorporates brainwave entrainment frequencies can potentially help you achieve:
…and a variety of other states of mind
In addition to brainwave entrainment (binaural beats, isochronic tones) Restful Tones Mp3’s also include:
Ethnic inspired soundtracks
Weightlessness, Floating, Outer Space soundtracks
“Primordial” Nature sounds combined with ambient sound
Unique Musical Tracks
Using Binaural Beats and Isochronic Tones For Altering Brainwave Activity
Binaural Beats are the most recognized form of brainwave entrainment. With binaural beats a slightly different tone is presented into each ear. The tones then combine in the brain to form a pulse or "beat". The pulse heard by the listener is actually the difference between the two tones. For example, if the left ear is given a tone at 200 hertz and the right ear is given a tone of 210 hertz, then the listener will hear a beat of 10 hertz. And the brain will entrain to that rhythm. (10 hz is a brainwave frequency at the alpha level). By listening to a brainwave entrainment mp3 embedded with binaural beats designed with a 10 hz frequency relaxation will follow as your brain becomes "entrained" by the repititious rhythm of the binaural beats.
While binaural beats are by far the most used form of brainwave entrainment, other more modern methods are quickly gaining popularity. The most promising of the new methods is Isochronic tones. Isochronic tones are a somewhat less well known form of entrainment; however, they have proven to be much more effective. Isochronic entrainment uses a single tone that is manually spaced, turning on and off in a precise pattern. This actually enhances the effectiveness of audio entrainment.
The human ear aided by a good set of stereo headphones (or by a good speaker system), can hear frequencies as low as 16 hz. A 30 hz tone, for example, can be heard easily with stereo headphones (with the volume turned up), and also by a good speaker system (a 30 hz tone sounds like very deep bass). But what happens when the ears can't hear lower frequencies within the 0.1 hz - 15 hz range? This is unfortunate because it just so happens that there are several interesting states of consciousness associated with the frequencies between 0.1 hz and 15 hz. This is where brainwave entrainment with binaural beats and isochronic tones comes in. Binaural beats and isochronic tones trick the nervous system into perceiving lower frequencies. For example, when you listen to a 200 hz tone in one ear, and a 210 hz tone in the other ear, the human nervous system will try to resolve the input from both ears and manufacture a "phantom" 10 Hz tone. This is the actual binaural beat. Isochronic tones work a little differently. Isochronic tones can be programmed to turn on and off in a precise pattern whether at 0.5 hz, 1 hz, 2 hz.....7 hz....10 hz, 15 hz etc.

"I bought your Ultimate Brainwave Entrainment Mp3 Program. I did quite a bit of research on competing products, sites, reviews, and so on. I did not see your site/products reviewed; however, I like the tone, feel, and organization of your site, and the abundance of information better than any other site I looked at. Your low prices are a blessing, and providing a free full-length, level 5 session on your homepage is a very generous, good-faith measure. You've earned my vote, and a big thumbs up. Thank you! - Read more
"Your mp3s are simply outstanding. I've been using brainwave entrainment for more than twenty years, beginning with cassette tapes put out by Zygon when I was a teenager. I meditate daily, with or without entrainment, and I'm always on the search for the so called latest and best entrainment technology, and over the years, I've educated myself about the particulars of brainwave frequencies, binaurals, isochronic and monaural beats. I have used and tried almost every product on the market. And knowing what I know about entrainment whatever other brainwave entrainment companies say about their superior technology cannot fool me. When I purchased your mp3 products and listened to them for the first time, I was blown away! I guess because I've used entrainment for so long, I've developed a certain sensitivity to the changing of frequency in my own brain, and I can instantly feel the effect of any entrainment, and the multiple variations in a recording. Like I said, I've used many products from many companies, and the quality of your work, whatever it is that you do, absolutely surpasses everything I have experienced." Read more
"Delta Boost has been a great experience for me. I didn't know much about it, but decided to give it a try. Starting with level one, I have listened for half an hour each morning for the past year and a half. It has brought amazing peace and resolution to my life. I don't stress when I'm listening, just let the downloads do their work while I am in a quiet state of mind. My meditation time has improved 100% as well as my overall feeling of joy. Amazing results. Positive experiences are coming into my life without any effort, it has been transformational. I am a different and much happier person. Thank you."Read more
"I had a very nice buyer experience with restfultones.com! The service: A++ The contact person, Ed was very helpful, polite and responsive with regards to all my enquiries. And most of all, I found him an honest guy... The product: A++ I purchased 2 products from him, the Energy & Focus Mp3 Pack and the Mind Massage. The Energy & Focus Mp3 Pack helped me lots to concentrate to study my CFA course that I am taking now. The Mind Massage CD [no longer available] soothes me when I feel tense and unable to sleep well, this really helps. Even my dad loved the. The first time he listened to it, he told me he felt 'something special'. He could not describe the feeling but he felt great. The Cost: A+ I think the price is reasonable for such long hours of high quality MP3s. I found that similar stuffs will cost alot more in the retail shops. The Shipping: A++ The shipping was fast, the goods are well-packed, never opened, brand new and in perfect condition. restfultones.com rocks!" Read more
""Experienced meditators can decide for themselves whether Delta Boost is beneficial to them or not. But I I think newbie meditators will definitely benefit listening to Delta Boost. As an experienced meditator I do 5 minutes of my own meditation (without Delta Boost), before starting on Delta Boost. When I meditate on my own I must be reaching alpha, (and maybe theta), in that 5 minutes. I must say though, that what I feel when listening to Delta Boost is not a place I have been before. I know here in India we tend to look down on anything so easy as non-spiritual, and most fellow meditators I know will not call what I do with Delta Boost meditation - but I know for sure it's great spiritual progress. Thanks for giving us something so good - and so affordable." Read more
"Just a few words regarding my purchase of your Delta Boost program. When I first stumbled across your website I thought...another mind site...when I saw your statement "an alternative to Holosync" this made me think as I had already tried the first stage of the Holosync Program. So I downloaded your program and got started.
To be honest I did rush into it somewhat (skipping several levels) thinking I was already a few levels up with using Holosync. I did move quickly up to level 4 and then up to 6 but then...OUCH...the headaches came fast and furious, I decided "Slow Down" and even go back a stage!
I then found myself stuck at level 6 program 3, I just loved this one so much.
Happily I can you tell you I have moved on, and now at level 7 No 7.
Wow..........I have to tell you I can feel both my Temporal Lobes " BUZZING " for the want of a better expression!
Evaluating you program, I give you the Auspicious award: .
Probably one of the biggest changes for me is being mentally focused as my upbringing made me the opposite!
I now honestly think different!!!!!!!!!!! Read more
"My experience with Delta Boost has been wonderful. Having used many different "brain technology" products, I can say that Delta Boost is a tremendous value with all the features of more expensive programs, plus you get a whole lot more. I would recommend it to meditators of any level." Read more
"I have been using the Relaxation Music Mp3 Pack for almost 3 months now, every day, and I feel some of the benefits alpha, theta and delta frequencies have on my brain and on my well being in general. Once I get over the basics, I intend to use the package to improve my ESP and subjective communication skills. Here's what I feel as a positive change so far: - I am a calmer, more balanced emotionally person now. - I can control my sleep patterns and I sleep less than I used to sleep before, this is also one of my goals I wanted to achieve. a.. It seems that I am less sensitive to the allergenic influence (I used to take medication to stop the allergies every Spring) b.. I have a more positive attitude towards people and adverse events in general. c.. I have improved memory, though I still want to work on this aspect more. Surely I want to test how the programs influence my hormonal processes, however this will take time. Thank you much for the programs offered." Read more
"I found the Meditation and Inner Peace Mp3 Pack to be the best value when compared to other similar products in the market. Not only do your products work well but the variety of available downloads provides me with choices. These choices afford the opportunity to listen to what is most appropriate at the time I want to listen. I have experienced deep relaxation as well as trance like meditation with your products. The Schumann Resonance product is superior to others I have purchased and you provided it as a free bonus in the Meditation and Inner Peace Mp3 Pack! An unexpected benefit has been a drop in my blood pressure to the point that I have been able to reduce the amount of medication required, thank you! p.s. the bonus screensavers with ambient music have been very useful for professional workshops and college classes that I teach. I use them as slide shows to put persons into a learning mode and to occupy minds during breaks." Read more
"I purchased the Relaxation Music Mp3 Pack of Alpha, Theta and Delta Sessions with Isochronic tones and nature sounds embedded into new age music, and I couldn't be happier with my purchase! Besides the pure beauty of the music and sounds, I found that I could use the different sessions at different times of day in order to promote sleep, get ready for a busy day, relax and meditate, or during exercise and jogging. I find they do make it easier to fall asleep, help me to relax when I have a lot of stress, and make exercise easier. I also found that during meditation I am having gentle grid-like visuals, and my dreams have become more interesting and memorable. And there is a lot of Bonus Material that I am still sorting through! I am still exploring the virtues of these sessions and look forward to trying other material. I truly recommend the Restful Tones line of Brainwave Entrainment Music, you should try it too!" Read more
"I purchased the Relaxation Music Mp3 Pack, and the Meditation & Inner Peace Mp3 Pack. I have to say that in the past I use to listen to Monroe Institute cds. But with Restful Tones mp3's I get much more relaxed, and I can get better trance states. I use Restful Tones tracks in two different situations: 1.- When I commute. I listen to theta and delta sessions while I am on the train commuting (travel lasts 40-45 mins), and it´s incredible I can get into a trance state for a few moments despite all the noises and movements of the train and the people. I get very well rested and relaxed. 2.- In my reiki sessions. I sometimes play a track from the Relaxation Music Mp3 Pack to help me concentrate into "feeling" the energy in my hands. I have observed that I can "hold" the magnetic feeling in my hands for longer periods of time with this music. I can also get the magnetic feeling earlier in the session. People who receive the sessions have several experiences (cold, heat, visualizations, movements of energy around their bodies). But another point I have observed is that everyone gets much more relaxed with the music. If I play another kind of relaxing music, or no music at all, they relax less." Read more
"I have used a number of similar products from various places (I won't drop any names) but I purchased your Astral Projection Mp3 Pack [now called "Awakened Mind Mp3 Pack"] and I can tell you your product has surpassed the others. I will be purchasing more from you in the future. The quality and the results have been far more than I was expecting and I am very pleased how quickly I could actually let go while listening to these. Thank you for a good experience." Read more
"I have purchased the Relaxation Music Mp3 Pack and also the Awakened Mind Mp3 Pack. The Relaxation Music Mp3 Pack I have used consistently and have achieved results like these: increased peace and calm, higher conscious awareness, increased threshold for stress (I'm not bothered by all those little and some big things I used to be annoyed by). I look forward to my sessions tremendously knowing when I'm through (even before they're over) the calm and peace have returned and my mind and body are relaxed. It is very enlightening and powerful to clear these blocks and attain clarity of mind. I have used the Energy and Focus Mp3 Pack at work to be able to concentrate and get through issues. For more complex problems I've used the extreme focus. For a lift you can't beat the energy/motivation sessions, you will feel like you just had a very restful couple hour nap. I also like the Schumann Resonance. I also have the Awakened Mind Mp3 Pack and my favorites are the Deep Mind 5 session and the Awakened Mind (Floating). I try to listen to the sessions outdoors if I can while laying down. You would not believe the calming that comes over you especially with a soft breeze blowing on your cheeks." Read more
"Thank you for doing such a wonderful job with the Meditation and Inner Peace Mp3 Pack. I love the variety I had to choose from and I appreciate the customer service you give with your updates, etc. I use my Restful Tones mp3 packs all the time. When I am feeling a little tired and need a boost I listen to the alpha waves for about half an hour. It really energizes me. I would recommend this to anyone who is working and needs a break at lunch time. I take my mp3 player with me when I travel to calm me while flying and to relax to during stop-overs between flights. I also am a Reiki therapist and I play the music when I am giving Reiki to clients. I find it brings me to a very tranquil place where I can connect with my client very quickly. I find it so helpful in so many ways I would absolutely recommend this product to everyone!" Read more
"I've tried Holysync, Equisync, Harmonic Ascension, Dr Jeffrey Thompson etc. I find Restful Tones to be vastly superior. I have never experienced such serene meditative experiences until I've used these products. I'm not sure if it's the frequencies, beautiful ambient music or just high quality recordings, but there is nothing out there better. I highly recommend these products." Read more
"Usually I do not need help to meditate, but once in a while the mind chatter doesn't want to stop. When this happens I plug in my mp3 player, put on my headphones and listen to one of your Inner Peace and Tranquility tracks (See Meditation and Inner Peace Mp3 Pack). It always does the trick and takes me to a lovely peaceful place where the stress and strain of everyday life have no part. Thank you Ed, for using your time and experience to make these tracks some of the best on the market (and a fraction of the price)." Read more
"I have purchased most of the products from Restful Tones, and very soon I singled out one track for my personal needs - the Alpha Relaxation 1 (see Meditation and Inner Peace Mp3 Pack) - and have used it since prior to meetings, or any other situation where I felt some tension. I find myself totally relaxed in meetings and less anxious to "perform" in top management environments. I'm free, powerful and performance anxiety is no issue anymore!" Read more
"I bought the Energy & Focus Mp3 Pack. In particular I tried Energy & Motivation + Attention & Focus as I like to try many of the downloads I buy as possible, to test that they really do have benefits, and are effective. Well it definitely 'does what it says on the tin' as they say. In fact I was surprised exactly how good I felt within a few days. Definitely coming back for more." Read more
"I have recently purchased both the Relaxation Music Mp3 Pack, and the Meditation & Inner Peace Mp3 Pack. I have to say it is one of the best ways I have found to relax and unwind from the day, right after arriving home from work. I especially enjoy the Schumann Resonance track, as it calms me and puts me into a deep relaxed state. Later in the evening, I listen to the Alpha, or Theta sessions as I do a little computer work. When I go to bed, I listen to the Very Very Deep track or the Delta session. Both of these tracks put me right to sleep. I could not be more pleased with the quality of the Mp3's or the response they bring about in both my body and mind. The binaural beats create a symphony of sounds that travel through out my head causing a euphoric state. The tracks are fun to listen to as the sound travels from one place to another in my head. These tracks are well worth the money, and the Mp3's are easy to download from the web site. If you are stressed a little or a lot, these Mp3 Packs are for you!" Read more
"I can definitely confirm that with my kinesiologist I suggested a whole range of popular brain entrainment products, including Holysync (some of them I don't remember the names so I just imagined them, and still got a no). To my amazement my bio-feedback did declare it wanted me to use YOUR Mp3's. This clearly means to me that your Mp3's are great value and great quality (and perhaps the best on the internet). And I really think the other companies sell less with more hype and marketing to try to cash in on the trade. I think it's really great what you do and that you provide great tones at great prices, and I also beleive the reason why inner self wants me to use your isochronics so much is because Ive reached a level in my mental advancement that requires more powerful tones, the ones that YOU provide, rather than other companies that possibly pay their clients to write testimonies for products that are ridiculously over priced, and just aren't that great. When listening to the "Awakened Mind Session" I had a very deep and blissful experience. It felt like time went on forever and it was very therapudic, I am definitely happy to use it! Read more
