PROTEUS LIGHT AND SOUND BRAIN ENTRAINMENT DEVICE
(As used in Susan’s hypnosis sessions)
Do you or does your child experience difficulties in focus and concentration?
Do you feel Distressed from the symptoms of ADD/ADHD?
Are you suffering from anxiety?
Is test anxiety an issue for you?
Could you use some help falling asleep and/or staying asleep?
Would you like to experience deep states of relaxation and meditation?
Are you an athlete; avid or weekender, who would like to be operating at peak performance?
Do you suffer from chronic pain?
THE PROTEUS LIGHT AND SOUND DEVICE MAY BE JUST FOR YOU.
What if you could take a 15 minute break in your day and in that time frame, you would experience a true, deep state of tranquility. How differently do you think the rest of your day would go? Do you think you could accomplish more? Be more patient with others and self? Remove any discomforting thoughts?
With the Proteus light and sound machine, you can work with your brainwaves to achieve optimum levels of ; tranquility, concentration, ADHD and ADD challenges, stress reduction, increased performance in sports, enhanced sleeping abilities, pain management and more.
HERE’S SCIENTIFIC PROOF THAT MIND MACHINES REALLY WORK!
To the scientific community, devices like the MindLab are known by a wide variety of names: Photic Stimulators, Brain Wave Synchronisers (BWS), Light and Sound devices (LS) and Audio Visual Stimulators (AVS). However it’s described, the proven fact is that these devices have a wide range of beneficial effects — and there’s a wealth of experimental evidence and research to show this.
the picture above shows a brain map before a 30-minute session on a Mind’s Eye light and sound device (an earlier version of the MindLab Proteus). Notice the lack of symmetry, and the ‘thinking’ Beta activity shown by the green coloring at the back of the left side of the brain.
This is the same person after a Mind’s Eye session: all the thinking Beta activity has gone (the person’s mind is quieter), and notice the symmetry between both hemispheres: a sense of inner balance.
Glen Solomon MD reported in Headache magazine that both chronic and acute muscle contraction headaches were relieved with slow wave photic stimulation. 14 of 15 patients in this group noted complete relief of their headache. One patient noted a 75% reduction in headache intensity. Five of the six patients in this group noted complete relief of their headache. In a placebo controlled trial, none of the four responded to placebo, but all responded to treatment with slow wave photic stimulation.
Pain relieved, blood pressure lowered
Norman Shealy MD, PhD (author of “the Creation of Health”) and colleagues, using several mind machines, found that “all subjects reported increased relaxation after 30 minutes of BWS, with all but four subjects reporting relaxation depths of 60% or greater, most above 75%. When BWS was combined with self-hypnotic CDs, consistent relaxation depths of 70 to 100% were reported.”
Instant zazen, increased creativity
Bruce Harrah-Conforth PhD used a forerunner of the MindLab Proteus in extensive trials with 15 volunteers, the effects on their brains being carefully monitored by EEG.
Harrah-Conforth reported a “simultaneous discharge… indicative of trophotropic (non-dominant) and ergotropic (dominant) hemispheric arousal… Psychologically, these states are associated with Zazen and yogic Samadhi and can include creative and ecstatic experiences.”
Helping the learning disabled
In a series of three studies with learning disabled children, research by Harold Russell PhD and John Carter PhD at Houston University found that “systematic regular use of the AVS entrainment procedures appears to result in measurable improvements in brain functioning in whichever is the lower functioning hemisphere. Equalization of functioning may be of particular relevance to learning disabled and possibly attention deficit disorder children.”
Sound and light research
Michael Hutchison wrote in the book Megabrain Power: “It has been well established over the last 50 years of research that light and sound devices can rapidly produce states of deep relaxation, may increase suggestibility and receptivity to new information, and may enhance access to subconscious material.”
British psychologist Julian Isaacs, PhD, working in the USA with a private research group called the Other 90 Percent, studied the brainwave effects of light and sound devices using an advanced brain-mapping EEG. They found “very clear evidence of brainwave driving” as well as a very strong correlation between the intensity of the light used and the brain entrainment: the brighter the lights, the more entrainment.
Relaxation for sedation
In 1988 anesthesiologist Robert Cosgrove Jr. PhD, MD, undertook preliminary studies of light and sound. In his initial evaluations, Cosgrove, an authority in pharmaceutics and biomedical engineering, noted that light and sound was “clearly very powerful in its ability to cause deep relaxation in most subjects.
