Calming Audio Download from the Pioneers of Auditory Brain Stimulation
Company honors research constituency by offering free calming aid
July 12, 2010 – Santa Fe, NM – The Strong Institute, creator of Rhythmic Entrainment Intervention and the REI Custom Program, is gifting one million calming audio downloads by the end of 2010. They are making available the superior calming technology that is being used in countless homes, schools, hospitals, and therapy centers around the world.
In 1994, when Jeff Strong presented his first pilot study at a Center for the Study of Autism conference, he was just beginning his path as a researcher in the field of auditory stimulation and it’s effects on the central nervous system.
Noted physicians and researchers agreed that if all he did was help reduce anxiety, help make these children calmer, this impact alone would be enough.
Now, 16 years later, the Strong Institute has not only perfected it’s ability to reduce anxiety and create calm for kids across the autism spectrum, but they have made a major impact in the realms of other disorders including, AD/HD, Anxiety Disorders, Traumatic brain injury, PTSD, and Sleep Disorders.
In recognition of their progress in the field of auditory stimulation, the Strong Institute has a goal of giving away one million downloads by the end of 2010. “It barely skims the surface,”says Director Jeff Strong. “We are touching only a few of the millions who have been diagnosed with autism over the past 16 years. But we are eager to give back to the very community that inspired our work.”
This download is a 20-minute audio recording that can have several benefits, which include:
* Calming the listener’s nervous system, leaving him more relaxed, with lower anxiety. To receive this benefit simply turn the recording at the volume described at the beginning of the download and do a quiet activity such as reading, eating, resting, quietly playing, etc.
* Transitioning to sleep. Playing this CD as the listener goes to sleep will help with the onset of sleep. Again, the volume is critical for this purpose - if it’s too loud it will keep the listener awake. Set it at a volume where it won’t be “listened” to. It only needs to be loud enough for the listener’s “primitive” brain to hear it. This means it should be quiet enough to fall below the listener’s awareness after just a couple of minutes.
* Reducing acute feelings of anxiety. Turn this recording on anytime the listener becomes anxious or tantrums. It usually takes just a few minutes to create calm.
The Strong Institute is an internationally recognized pioneer and leader in the field of auditory brain stimulation. Their work with individuals on the Autism Spectrum has positively impacted thousands of individuals. Formerly known as the REI Institute, the therapy mentioned is Rhythmic Entrainment Intervention, or REI for short.
