Stress Reduction Therapy
Stress Reduction Therapy is a relaxation room used to improve your brain function. Our system, BrainTap, is an extraordinary new technology that delivers gentle pulses of light through special glasses. These lights synchronize with tones known as binaural beats to produce deep and profound relaxation. While research has proven that both flickering light and synchronized tones can produce relaxed states, combining the two takes the body to a more profound level of relaxation; it is a state of tranquility that is optimum for healing, focus, and accelerated learning. And, because a twenty-minute session simulates a sleep cycle, it can be the equivalent of four hours of sleep.
SRT and stimulation of brainwave activity are among the most studied areas of psychiatry and psychology. The following results have been demonstrated through numerous documented studies and the inventor's, Dr. Porter's, experience with hundreds of thousands of clients:
- The right and left hemispheres of the brain become more balanced.
- Blood flow to the brain increases, resulting in clearer thinking, better concentration, improved memory, and enhanced creativity.
- Serotonin levels increase by up to twenty-one percent, which calms the mind and body and creates an overall sense of wellbeing.
- Endorphin levels increase by up to twenty-five percent. These are the hormones that flow through the body when we feel happy. Endorphins provide the brain with alertness, are a natural anti-depressant, provide relief from pain, and create pleasurable and loving feelings.
The majority of users report stress relief through deep relaxation, better sleep, improved memory, improved learning skills such as concentration and recall of information, emotional stability, a sense of calm, increased focus, lucid dreaming, and increased physical energy. We are always researching these benefits with our users and partners in the field. Please be aware that while SMT and MindFit are designed to help you reach your full potential, results are not guaranteed. Please understand that results will vary from person to person.
How it Works
Binaural beats are two separate tones of a slightly different pitch. One tone is presented to the left ear and the other to the right ear. Your brain combines the two tones to make a single new tone. The single tone pulses to match relaxed brainwave frequencies. Your brain follows the pattern and creates a relaxed state that is optimal for learning, problem solving, and self-motivation.
Self Mastery Technology (SMT) is the process of reaching deep levels of relaxation and then using guided visualization to form mental images.

About the Four Brainwave Frequencies
BETA 13-30 Hz
This is the wide-awake alert state where you spend most of your waking life. Beta is your reactionary mind. It is the level of your mind where fears, frustrations and negative emotions are processed. This is also where your strongest filtering system operates. It is called the critical factor. The key purpose in using the SRT is to train your mind to get out of this state where stress is dominant.
ALPHA 8-13 Hz
This is the frequency most associated with creativity, imagination and flow. Alpha is the intuitive mind. It is also the brain state associated with relaxation, tranquility and daydreaming. Flow thinking, or a state of "inward awareness," takes place in alpha. It is also known as a super-learning state.
THETA 4-8 Hz
This is the breakthrough state where you can reinvent your life. Theta is the inventive mind. It borders on sleep and is a meditative state with access to the other-than-conscious mind where you have higher levels of creativity, learning, and inspiration. It is also the state in which the SRT help you to visualize and realize your goals.
DELTA 1-4 Hz
This is deep, dreamless sleep. Delta is the unconscious mind. The SRT is designed to keep you from falling into this state of sleep. This is why the light and sound patterns of the SRT system continue to change throughout the session.
