Depression is an insidious disease usually brought on by a chemical imbalance in the brain. Clinically depressed people tend to have problems getting to sleep or sleeping restfully. The resulting sleep deprivation can then make the depression worse, resulting in more sleep deprivation, and so on and so on.
Those people who don't suffer clinical depression but do suffer from sleep deprivation can actually feel the effects as depression. Feeling lethargic, tired, and irritable are common effects of sleep deprivation and can often lead to true depression. It's a connection that scientists continue to study but that no one disputes. It's critical, therefore, to get the best night's sleep possible every night and a well thought out speaker pillow may be the answer for many.
The History Behind Audio Guidance
The concept of using music, sounds, and or audio guidance for enhanced well being is not new and has been most notably researched by individuals such as Heinrich Wilhelm Dove (1803 – 1879), Dr. Alfred A. Tomatis (1920-2001), and Robert A. Monroe (1915–1995). Most noted for his development of audio recording to enhance consciousness and develop intuition, among many other applications (such as stress relief and enhanced dreaming) is Robert Monroe and the Monroe Institute.
What is the Science Behind Audio Guidance?
The crux of the science behind sound, binaural audio guidance, and gentle sound-induced sleep is how the brain stem reacts to ultra-low frequency tones that are slightly varied in the left and right ears.
While the listener hears primarily the music or ambient sounds while listening, the brain "hears" the difference between the two low tones and produces a third tone called binaural beat. This simply means the brain is now in "sync". This creates a coherency to the brain's activity. Consequently, the listener is able to easily reach a deep, restful sleep state.
The Sleepsonic speaker pillow is ideally suited for this application, and numerous sound therapy programs such as Hemi-Sync® and Brain-Sync® are best utilized through the speaker pillow delivery method for attaining sleep and relaxation. The recordings used in the implementation of audio exercises such as the Hemi-Sync or Brain Sync CDs, are optimized by the use of headphones.
Thus, wherever headphones are used for sleep or while listening to relaxing sound or sleep exercises, the additional comfort of an effective listening aid such as a speaker pillow is readily experienced. The speaker pillow permits uninterupted listening during rest and helps the listener to reach a calm state that leads to a restful sleep cycle.
