This section presents tracks and albums that feature music and sounds that can be used as Sound Therapy - including specialist sounds that may promote better sleep, or to assist people suffering with Tinnitus, Vertigo, or conditions such as Parkinson's Disease, or to rejuvenate energy by stimulating the Chakra subtle energy system... or who may just be looking for a healing 'Sound Bath' in which to immerse and relax.
NOISE MASKING SOUNDS
These are sounds that are specially-created (in specific frequencies) to help with sleep disorders and other conditions. Noise Masking Sounds are continuous, unchanging signals at a particular frequency and amplitude. Which noise is best for sleep? No one knows for sure, but testing each one will determine what is best for each individual. They are categorised as: White, Pink, Brown, Blue, Violet, and Grey Noise. In additional to the Flat Frequency Response version in each category, a 'Dynamic' Frequency version is also included, which may be easier to listen to for longer. Try them all, and see what works best.
PLEASE NOTE: Generally, a very low volume level will be more comfortable than a high level (and also allow the listener to hear eternal sounds as well) - a high volume may seem harsh and agitating, or even induce stress, whereas a low volume will help the brain to adjust the differences between the external sounds and the internal noise (which is useful for Tinnitus) - but again, experiment and see what is right for you!
WHITE Noise - White Noise can assist with the symptom of Tinnitus: the perception of sound when no corresponding sound is present (often called ringing, clicking, buzzing, hiss, or roaring in the ears). For this reason, it can be used as a common synthetic noise source as a sound masker, and sleep enhancer. White Noise has been popular with people for ages as a sleep aid. It encompasses all the frequencies that humans can possible hear (from 20Hz to 20,000Hz).
PINK Noise - Pink Noise is another choice and is particularly popular with people wanting to find a sleep aid. Recent research shows that Pink Noise promotes longer time in deep sleep, and it can improve memory. Pink Noise is a mix of high and low frequencies (similar to the sound of falling rain or gentle ocean waves), producing a soft, calming effect. This mix, that has more Bass than does White Noise, helps the blocking effect to drown out distracting noises that keep people from falling asleep.
BROWN Noise - Brown Noise is like a deeper version of Pink Noise. It has even greater depth in the Bass frequencies, and low-frequency concentrated energy - stronger than Pink Noise, and sounds more like a humming low note.
BLUE Noise - Blue Noise is mostly concentrated at the high end of the frequency spectrum, with very few deep tones. It sounds harsher than the lower masking noises, however, the higher pitch helps to block outside noise. It is recommended to use at low volume levels.
