Theta Pod Information & Research
Inducing a Theta state can open your brain to suggestion, learning and healing. The Theta Pod uses state of the art technology to bring on this Theta state. With the opportunity to customize your targeted area of treatment, from depression, anxiety and PTSD to focus and concentration to different types of addiction, the Theta Pod creates a unique mental wellness treatment opportunity.
The Theta Pod is the leading modality and crown jewel of Happy Whole You. Over 20 years in the making, the technology involved in putting this cutting-edge piece of equipment combines the wisdom of the ancients with the technology of the future. The idea of the pod from start to ﬁnish is to create for its user, a window into the corridors of his/her own brain that will allow for the possibility of transcendental experiences, to bring about real and lasting change. First, the pod is designed to induce a person’s brainwave activity into a wavelength scientiﬁcally referred to as “Theta” (Hence the name). It is a state of relaxation that is well known to everyone as the drowsy, abstract sensation that one feels as they are falling asleep. This allows the brain to take the majority of its focus oﬀ of sensory perception and conscious thought, to withdraw into the more profound regions of mental activity that we now know as the bio magnetic ﬁeld. Once we have “digitally” induced meditation, the task of “reprogramming” begins. The brain constantly puts out signals to the body, and since the mind/body connection is a two-way door, we can reverse the process and use the body to attune the brain. There are four main ways in which the Theta Pod uses our body’s sensory perception, to re-attune the brain.
The spin in the Theta Pod is approximately 13 rpms, since this velocity synchronizes your body’s natural rotation to the spin of the Earth. The vestibular motion throws oﬀ the brain’s natural sense of time and space, and people feel as if they are ﬂoating, or rocking. These movements are purposely enhancing the ﬂow in your bio magnetic ﬁeld.
Microcurrent signaling is also known as cranial electro-stimulation (CES). Controlled studies of CES conducted in the last twenty years have shown it to be eﬀective in alleviating anxiety, depression, insomnia, in withdrawal from drugs and alcohol, and in a variety of other problems. CES is used relax the individual and induce a state of openness and heightened awareness, allowing new ideas, memories, and subconscious material to come to the surface.
Binaural beats are designed to bring the brain into a Theta state using subtle pulses or "beats" that are created when slightly oﬀset tones are played through headphones. The cerebral hemispheres are synchronized by the beats and the correct conditions for neural pathway re-establishment (also known as "entrainment") are produced. The result is deep relaxation for the duration of your session.
Visual Pattern Light Stimulation
Light sensory stimulation accesses the brain through the thalamus, which is directly connected to the cortex. Light patterns can easily inﬂuence cortical activity and can also aﬀect neuronal activity when synchronized correctly. The Theta Pod℠ uses computer technology to precisely generate and synchronize these lights for maximum positive eﬀect. Light stimulation actively induces a state of deactivation in which the brain is passive, but not asleep; awake, but not involved with the ‘clutter’ of ongoing existence. When Brain-wave activity is synchronous, we have feelings of euphoria, heightened mental powers, creativity, the ability to “get out of your head”, or be ‘in the world but not of the world’.
After your 30 minute session in the Theta Pod, you'll sit and enjoy a Bulletproof Collagen Shake while wearing the rTMS machine. Since that the brain generates electricity, and that just like any electric circuit it emanates a magnetic field, we can use an artificial magnetic field (rTMS) to redirect electric flow in the brain. Rapid Transcranical Magnetic Stimulation has been proven to direct the proper flow of chemicals in the brain, producing balance in the level of chemicals like serotonin and dopamine.
