The brainwave entrainment technology has gained a lot of popularity these days. One of them that this technology is based on is the alpha brainwaves. These are the waves that lie within 8-12 Hz range. They are generated at the right hemisphere of the brain. They can also be generated on a synchronized pattern in both the left and right hemispheres of the brain. These are only present when the body and the mind are in a state of complete relaxation mode and free of stress.

The alpha brainwaves are highly dominant in those people who are creative and relaxed and whose mind is clear. They are considered the normal brainwave patterns and they are most highly dominant when a person closes the eyes. Generally speaking, the children tend to have higher levels than the adults. These are considered to be the healthiest of all. Moreover, 10Hz in frequency is generally accepted as the brainwave frequency that is the safest to train.

Most of the young teenagers and children have alpha rhythm that is dominant. There is no single brain wave pattern that is considered to be better or superior to the others. You should therefore, not think of the alpha brain waves as being the cause of all the problems and conditions that people suffer from. If your brain is deficient in these waves, it may feel awesome increasing them to the required levels.

These types of brainwaves have very many advantages. However, if they are present in the excessive levels in the brain, there may have some adverse effects.
