NAP26™ is a safe, natural audio program that uses binaural beats sound technology designed to be listened to with headphones. "Binaural (heard with two ears) beats" are simply sounds and tones designed to be heard at slightly different frequencies by each ear. This slight difference in sound vibration between the right ear and the left ear matches natural sleeping patterns and is what helps signal the brain to either enter a more relaxed state or enter a higher level of alertness.
Binaural beats were discovered in 1839 by Associate Professor, at the University of Berlin, Heinrich Wilhelm Dove. Dove discovered that when two sounds, that are similar but slightly shifted in frequency, are presented separately to the left and right ear (Binaural) they will cause a pulsation or beat type effect in the brain. Binaural beats technology was later mastered by Dr Gerald Oster in 1973, who discovered that the sound technology is similar to natural brain frequencies and sleep patterns which can be matched to help signal the body to enter a more relaxed state or a state of higher alertness. It was Dr. Oster who went on to discover the many e amazing effects that these binaural beats had on the mind and body!
Binaural beats are primarily used for relaxation, meditation and sleep. However, binaural beats also used by millions of people as a natural way to help sharpen the mind, increase concentration and improve mental focus, as well as stimulate creativity. Binaural beats have been help to people in reducing stress levels and achieving a better quality of life.
