For over twenty-five years the Strong Institute has been at the forefront of music-medicine research exploring how musical rhythm can be used to affect brain function. Part of this innovative research has focused on synchronizing the listener’s brain and producing a state of neurological calm.
Sleep Rhythms contains specialized techniques that have been shown in clinical trials to aid in speeding the onset of sleep – in most cases taking just a few minutes to achieve.
This recording is especially effective for people who have a hard time getting to sleep at night.
To obtain the best results from this recording, play it quietly in the background when you turn off the light to go to sleep at night.
This 90-minute recording contains 2 tracks:
• Track #1: This track contains REI rhythms accompanied by a guided meditation to help you let go of your day and to help any negative thoughts and beliefs you may have which can keep you from falling asleep. Choose this track if you need the meditation to calm your mind.
• Track #2: This track contains REI rhythms only and is preferable if you don’t need the narration to fall asleep.
Technical note: Because track #1 has a voice-over narration, the REI rhythms are placed further in the background than is typical for an REI recording. If you have one of our other recordings, you will find that you need to turn this one up higher than the recordings without the narration.
Note: Sleep Rhythms is most appropriate for adults. For children with sleep problems, we recommend Calming Rhythms.
