American Heart Association reports Sound Therapy may balance brain signals to reduce Blood Pressure, Migraines

 

American Heart Association Meeting Report Abstracts P310, P602

American Heart AssociationOrlando, FL – A noninvasive neurotechnology, which uses sound to balance right- and left-side brain frequencies was associated with lowered blood pressure, improved heart rate variability, and reduced symptoms of migraine headaches, according to two small studies presented at the American Heart Association’s Council on Hypertension 2016 Scientific Sessions.

The neurotechnology, called High-resolution, relational, resonance based, electroencephalic mirroring, or HIRREM® (Brain State Technologies, Scottsdale, Arizona), uses sensors placed on the scalp to measure brain electrical activity, and detect right/left imbalances, or hyperarousal, according to study author Hossam A. Shaltout, R.Ph., Ph.D., assistant professor in the Hypertension and Vascular Research Center at Wake Forest School of Medicine in Winston-Salem, North Carolina.
