This Valentine’s Day, Discover the Science Behind Love and the Brain

Neuroscience Expert Explains Connection Between Brainwaves and Your Emotional Health; and How to Embrace the Power of Your Most Vital Mental Instrument for a Better Love Life

By Dr.
Patrick K. Porter, Ph.D.

There’s no
denying that love makes most of us feel everything from
happy, distracted and passionate to crazy, tired and pretty much everything
else under the sun. So, it should come as no surprise that being in love can do
quite a number on our brains and bodies.

Studies show that those couples that
incorporate a
technology method called brainwave entrainment–also known as brainwave training–into their daily lives report significant
stress relief through deep relaxation. In fact, many of these couples say the
method also helps them maintain healthier sleep patterns, gives them a boost in
physical energy and focus, provides improved memory and learning skills, and a
better overall sense of calm and happiness in their romantic relationships.

my clinical experience, I have observed that those couples that use brainwave
entrainment as part of their regular routine find it easier to de-stress while also achieving emotional, mental and
physical balance. Unlike traditional meditation programs, brainwave
entrainment’s neuro-algorithms naturally and gently guide the brain through an
array of brainwave patterns–and the result is a complete spectrum of brainwave
activity, which provides better insights
into love and our relationships. 

training is an easy (and fast) way to relax and reboot and helps couples that
may be experiencing high stress and communication issues, difficulty sleeping,
low energy or other lifestyle challenges, recharge and revitalize their

Many couples I have worked with over the years say that the calming,
rejuvenating effects of even just 10 to 20 minutes of this method helps balance
their nervous system and protect against common stressors of everyday life,
including their relationship challenges.

Creating Feelings of Calm, Focus and Healing

Backed by
neuroscience and research, training your brainwaves helps guide the brain from
an awake, reactionary mind into an intuitive, creative state, and then to a
place where super-learning and healing occur–the outcome is a heightened state
of consciousness with crystal clear focus. The practice,
also often referred to as “braintapping,” creates a symphony of brainwave
activity, and feelings of calm focus that’s ideal for learning, productivity,
healing and clarity.

So, how does it work?

Our brainwaves mimic the pulse rates of the
sounds to which we’re exposed.
listening to varied frequencies and holographic music, you can reboot your
brain to a healthy, balanced state of relaxation and revitalization. The science behind training
your brainwaves relies on four critical elements that
enable technology to induce brainwave entrainment. The four components include
binaural beats, guided visualization, 10-cycle holographic music and isochronic

Braintapping uses auditory and visual stimulation
to synchronize and balance brainwaves. As the light and sound
frequency changes, so does the frequency in the brain. The process also
stabilizes the limbic system, which is involved in motivation, emotion, learning
and memory. 

Following a brainwave training session, the body is
calmed, your breathing becomes rhythmic, your hands become warmer and your
muscles begin to relax. In addition, the
light and sound stimulation boost your brain’s levels of serotonin, beta-endorphin
and norepinephrine–the same chemicals that are released during a romantic attraction
and make us giddy, energetic and euphoric

Harness the Power of Braintapping to Enhance Your Romantic Relationship

As human beings, we all strive to seek fulfilling
relationships, the type that uplift us and bring us joy. In my clinical and
personal experience, I can attest that we are all capable of finding true love
and building lasting, rewarding relationships.

While you’re enjoying some time with your significant
other this Valentine’s Day, take a moment to explore the science of love by
experimenting with brainwave training. If you follow through by tapping into
the latest technology, you and your partner will find, as many others have
discovered, that the approach can transform your relationship on a much deeper

Erin shows overscheduled, overwhelmed women how to do less so that they can achieve more. Traditional productivity books—written by men—barely touch the tangle of cultural pressures that women feel when facing down a to-do list. How to Get Sh*t Done will teach you how to zero in on the three areas of your life where you want to excel, and then it will show you how to off-load, outsource, or just stop giving a damn about the rest.
