Binaural beats therapy is used for a variety of reasons, and many people have taken to using binaural beat therapy at home, especially if they have heard from friends or relatives that have been to a binaural beat therapist of the positive results that the therapy has given them.
The problem with binaural beat therapy and any other type of therapy that involves manipulating the brain is that it should not be taken lightly and should most definitely not be administered without the close regulation of a qualified professional.
Binaural beat therapy of 10 Hz falls into the Alpha range of brain waves, and in most cases this would induce feelings of relaxation and peacefulness, but it is also important to note that 10 Hz affects the serotonin levels in the brain.
Although serotonin is found in other areas of the body, there is a gland in the brain itself that produces serotonin and the effects of increasing the levels of serotonin in the brain are not as easily controlled as other hormones.
Serotonin affects a variety of bodily functions including your appetite, sleep, mood, learning ability and many others. People who choose to implement binaural beats 10 Hz therapy without a qualified therapist run the risk of having completely adverse reactions.
An example of an adverse reaction of binaural beats 10 Hz therapy would be to undertake the therapy to improve their mood or be able to learn better than before, only to land up throwing themselves into a serious state of depression which could lead to suicide.
It is therefore extremely important that you begin any forms of binaural beat therapy with a qualified therapist; you can always continue the therapy after a few sessions at home alone.
