What are Alpha Waves, and how can they help you?

Alpha waves are one type of brain waves predominantly originate from the occipital lobe during wakeful relaxation with closed eyes.

They are emitted on an amplitude range between 8 and 15 Hz: these kind of waves are associated with a state of deep relaxation and stress release. Alpha waves are strictly connected with relaxed mental states, so increase in alpha wave activity is a desirable outcome for some types of biofeedback training.

Alpha Waves is an app that allows you to recreate that sound, helping you relax in a more profound way. Alpha Waves can emits a waveform at 11 Hz: start the frequency and adjust it to your liking by moving your finger across the slider placed on the sound-wave at the center of the screen. You can start the wave emission by pressing the Alpha button on the top left before starting your session of relaxation; you will notice a significant change in the quality of your moments of relax while you use it. We strongly suggest the use of headphones or quality speakers while using it.

To help you relax even better, we added several in-App functions. You can choose to add 7 super relaxing chill-out songs and 5 sounds of nature to relax more and finally find a total relief from stress. The built-in timer allows you to set how much the app will play. You also can change the background color through your settings: choose among 5 relaxing Alpha Wave inspired tones. By purchasing the full version of the app, you can unlock and enjoy all of these functions and improve your experience.

We put a lot of thought and passion in creating Alpha Waves, and we hope that by using it many people will discover the power of brainwave entrainment and isochronic tones. Use it frequently to get the best from your relaxation sessions.
