  1. What is Brainwave Entrainment/CVR?

    Simply put, visualization is the process of forming mental images; it is the primary component of the imagination. Visualization is at the core of the human ability to create, innovate and dream.

    Brainwave entrainment, also known as visual/auditory entrainment, uses light, sound, and relaxation to help you de-stress and live life more fully. People who regularly use brainwave entrainment learn to operate in the best brainwave mode for creativity, focus, and concentration. If you are the type who likes to get things done, brainwave entrainment can transform you into a mental powerhouse with the right mindset, focus, and energy to accomplish just about anything.

    Many of history’s inventors and artists attribute their success to an exceptional ability to visualize. Thomas Edison, Nikola Tesla, Henry Ford and the great composer, Chopin, all reported using creative visualization to spark their imaginations. Additionally, Albert Einstein once said that he came up with the theory of relativity by imagining what would happen if he could travel through space on the tip of a light beam. Creative visualization can transport you out of a state of stress or fear, and into a new space of inner calm, peace and tranquility. A natural byproduct of creative visualization occurs when the body goes loose and limp, thereby creating the relaxation response  the perfect state for learning, healing, or focusing on goals.

  2. What are Binaural Beats?
    Binaural beats are two separate tones of a slightly different pitch. One tone is presented to the left ear and the other to the right ear. Your brain combines the two tones to make a single new tone. The single tone pulses to match relaxed brainwave frequencies. Your brain follows the pattern and creates a relaxed state that is optimal for learning, problem-solving, and self-motivation.

  3. What are ZenFrames?
    ZenFrames are an extraordinary new technology that delivers gentle pulses of light through special glasses. These lights synchronize with binaural beats to produce deep and profound relaxation. While research has proven that both light (flickering) and sound (binaural beats) can produce relaxed states, combining the two moves the body into a more profound level of relaxation; it is a state of tranquility that is optimum for healing, focus, and accelerated learning. And, because a twenty-minute session simulates a sleep cycle, it can be the equivalent of four hours of sleep. If you want to get more done in less time, ZenFrames are a must-have.

  4. How important is the music?
    The music you hear on every PorterVision process was composed specifically to complement the Alpha/Theta brainwave entrainment. The music is designed to create a full 360 degree experience that floods your mind with beautiful images and peaceful thoughts.

  5.  Is creative visualization effective without the glasses?

    Creative visualization, guided imagery, and hypnosis have been around for decades. These are all scientifically proven modalities for behavior modification, pain relief, and self-improvement. Now they are made even more effective with the added benefit of brainwave entrainment through the ZenFrames technology.  

    While there is a wide assortment of relaxation training systems-autogenic (self-produced) training, progressive relaxation, meditation, and biofeedback to name a few-most of these take conscious effort. With the breakthrough of the ZenFrames, you don't have to "believe in" or "do" anything. You are immersed in the experience and don't have to create it.

  6. What are the different brainwave modes and how do they differ?
    In order to overcome the brutal effects of stress, you need to get out of the fight-or-flight response and into the relaxation response. The relaxation response can't happen as long as you generate high beta brainwave activity. Your brainwave activity must dip into alpha, the intuitive mind, or theta, the inventive mind. Many believe that theta is the optimum state for creativity and that it's the only mode in which one can make a quantum leap in consciousness. Unfortunately, theta mode is difficult to maintain. This is where the frequency following response comes in-it keeps your brain engaged. By using the ZenFrames, your brain is being trained to generate more theta waves and fewer beta waves. Since the effect is cumulative, this benefit carries over into your daily life. 

    Four Brainwave Frequencies
     

    Brainwave FrequencyName
    13-40 Hz Beta waves (Reactionary Mind)
    Mode: Active thought and concentration; associated with busyness and anxious thinking

     

    7-13 Hz Alpha waves (Intuitive Mind)
    Mode: Relaxation (while awake), daydreaming; associated with creativity

                                                      

    4-7 Hz Theta waves (Inventive Mind)
    Mode: The place between asleep and awake; associated with deep meditation and sleep learning

     

    < 4 Hz  Delta waves (Rejuvenating Mind)
    Mode: Deep dreamless sleep

  7. What is Frequency Following Response?

    The frequency following response (FFR) is the effect created through synchronized light and sound. It's how the brain "syncs" to the strobe lights and binaural beats. While your brain follows the frequencies, you experience less inner chatter and improved concentration. After a few weeks of regular use, most people gain a sense of balance and inner calm. Users report feeling serene, focused, and alert even when faced with high-pressure situations.

  8. Is it safe?

    Absolutely. The only known side-effects are improved memory, better sleep, focus, concentration, and reduced stress. However, flashing lights have been known to cause problems in people who suffer from serious medical conditions like epilepsy, seizures, brain injury, or photosensitivity. If you have any of these concerns, you should ask your medical professional if light and sound technology is right for you.

  9. Why are blue LEDs used?
    Research has shown that red light is stimulating while blue light is soothing.  Blue LEDs are the most safe, comfortable, and effective for reaching deep levels of relaxation.

  10. How fast should I experience results?

    Over 90 percent of those trying the ZenFrames for the first time report feeling refreshed and energized right after the process. While individual results will vary, smokers who want to quit often do so after listening to just one of Dr. Porter's Smoking Cessation processes. Of course, Dr. Porter encourages everyone to listen to the full series to make sure their results are permanent. Those using the Weight-Loss series often notice habit changes, such as a reduction in cravings or a desire for water, right after listening to the first process. Golfers regularly report feeling more relaxed and confident the first time out on the course after listening to Dr. Porter's Mental Coaching for Golf processes.

  11. What are the benefits of using the PorterVision ZenFrames?

    Creative visualization and stimulation of brainwave activity are among the most studied areas of psychiatry and psychology. The following results have been demonstrated through numerous documented studies and in Dr. Porter's experience with hundreds of thousands of clients:
     

    • The right and left hemispheres of the brain become more balanced.
    • Blood flow to the brain increases, resulting in clearer thinking, better concentration, improved memory, and enhanced creativity.
    • Serotonin levels increase by up to twenty-one percent, which calms the mind and body and creates an overall sense of well-being.
    • Endorphin levels increase by up to twenty-five percent. These are the hormones that flow through the body when we feel happy. Endorphins provide the brain with alertness, are a natural anti-depressant, provide relief from pain, and create pleasurable and loving feelings.
