In this video, I compare binaural beats to drumming for brainwave entrainment and describe why drumming is more effective (and versatile). I also play a meditation to demonstrate how entraining the brain to the alpha state works with drumming (starts at 12:04).
This video shows how I use fast, complex drumming rhythms to reduce sound sensitivities.
Sound sensitivity falls into two categories:
1. General overwhelm. Too much auditory input and competing sounds, such as those at a restaurant or school cafeteria, often result in shutting down or lashing out due to the inability to filter for important sounds.
2. Aversion to specific sounds. Certain sounds, such as that of a vacuum cleaner or blender, often elicit negative responses due to their specific frequency, intensity or volume.
Both require a progressive set of rhythms, tones, and levels of intensity and volume to help the nervous system learn to process and tolerate them.
