Alpha wave neurofeedback training is a form of biofeedback therapy that uses real-time displays of brain activity—most commonly electroencephalography (EEG)—to teach self-regulation of brain function.
Alpha waves are one type of brain wave, detected by EEG, that oscillate between 8 to 12 Hertz. They are usually associated with a relaxed, meditative, and creative state.
With Alphabeats neurofeedback training, you’re provided with real-time feedback about your alpha brain wave activity via music. You’ll hear changes to your personal soundtrack that correspond to changes in your alpha activity.
The goal of this process is to help you learn how to consciously increase your alpha wave activity. Over time, with repeated training, you’ll learn to enter this relaxed, creative state more easily, which can help reduce stress, improve motor coordination, enhance focus and decision-making.
Alphabeats is designed to be enjoyable and easy to use. Upon subscribing through the Alphabeats website, you’ll receive your Brainbit EEG headband directly to your door. You’ll also receive a welcome email explaining how to get started with the app.
Once you receive your headband, you can start training immediately. Your first weeks of training are dedicated to a foundational program, designed to familiarize you with the app and customize your training experience. Your training plan is designed to be flexible, featuring multiple sessions per week that are tailored to your personal needs and preferences. Each session's duration is adjustable to fit within your schedule, varying between a quick 10-minute session and a more in-depth 30-minute session.
You need a smartphone (see types of phones), a headset or earbuds, an internet connection and a relaxed place to sit.
The Alphabeats app is compatible with most smartphones. Apple and Android.
Alpha wave neurofeedback training is completely safe. It’s a non-invasive method of self-regulation training that involves learning new patterns of brain activity through music. There is no electrical stimulation to your brain.
Alphabeats is developed for professional athletes, so delivering to professional teams takes precedence in our initial launch. That said, we believe in empowering all committed athletes with mental training tools to perform at their best. We’ve started a waiting list for athletes not associated with a professional team, who wish to incorporate Alphabeats into their training regimen.
Simply sign up here and we’ll notify you when you’re at the top of the list!
Headband delivery and app access will begin in October 2023. Depending on where you live, the delivery of your headband can take 3-10 working days. After receiving your headband you can immediately access the app and start Alphabeats. Your exact delivery date will be determined by your position on the waiting list and we’ll be sure to keep you updated throughout the process.
Alphabeats is developed to improve the highest mental performance standards for professional athletes. That said, the Alphabeats mental training system is incredibly easy to use. Anyone looking to optimize performance and recovery can benefit from Alphabeats. Professional athletes specifically are required to maintain deep focus in periods of enormous pressure. This is where alpha wave training shines. Please note that Alphabeats is not a replacement for medical interventions.
If you have any issues, please contact us.
Our mental training system requires a Brainbit EEG headset, which we supply with your subscription. Brainbit headbands are the best at-home EEG device currently available. In addition to your headband, you’ll need a smartphone and headset to listen to music—that’s it!
