1) Your EEG activity is being altered - As the AVE frequency changes, so does the frequency in the brain – it’s that easy! For example, our Feeling Better sessions re-stabilize brainwaves by suppressing left frontal alpha while boosting right frontal alpha to normal levels.
2) You are being dissociated – When using AVE, you get drawn into the present moment and let go of thoughts relating to your daily hassles, hectic schedules, paying bills, worries, threats or anxieties and stop the unhealthy mental “chatter.” Dissociation involves a “disconnection” of self from thoughts and body awareness, as is experienced during deep meditation. Dissociation begins in four to eight minutes from properly applied AVE.
3) Your limbic system is being stabilized – Your body is calmed, your breathing becomes rhythmic, your hands warm, and your muscles relax.
4) A number of neurotransmitters are being produced – People with depressed mood have low levels of serotonin and norepinephrine. AVE boosts brain levels of serotonin, and norepinephrine to improve overall well-being.
5) Your cerebral blood flow is being increased - CBF is associated with many forms of mental disorders, including anxiety, depression, attentional problems, behavior disorders and impaired cognitive function. CBF tends to lower as we age, often causing cognitive decline. People experiencing depressed moods usually have lower levels of CBF in the left frontal and prefrontal lobes.
How many sessions can I do in a day? Can I use two sessions back to back? How often can I use an AVE device?
It depends on what you are using the AVE device for and what results you want to achieve. Typically people will use the AVE device every day or every other day. But you can use it more often if you like. There are many who are using an SMR session in the morning and a relaxing Schumann session in the afternoon or evening. You can use a session before retiring for the evening or run a session in the middle of the night if you have awoken but are having difficulty falling back to sleep.
