We don’t take baths enough nowadays.
We’ve turned into such a busy culture that a five-minute shower might be all that we can squeeze in to our crazy, manic day. We wash the stinky parts, and we’re out of there. It’s all about the business of hygiene, and not much more. Taking a shower is goal oriented and not necessarily all that pleasurable.
And when we do op out for a shower, we are missing out on something that could bring us great pleasure.
The wonderful, soothing, relaxing experience of a bath.
Listening to Isochronic Tones, a form of brainwave entrainment that alters the frequency of your brainwaves with a single beat, will take the already awesome experience of bathing, to another level. The brain naturally mimics any repeated, rhythmic pattern and soon alters its state of consciousness to match those pulses. Isochronic tones introduce a specific pulse to the brain that encourages a whole brain experience.
The Virtues Of Taking A Bath
- A bath relaxes your entire body. Every little ache and pain is enveloped in a warm, amniotic-like fluid that soothes them away. You lie back and let go.
- You get to reflect on your own naked body. It’s really not that bad, is it? You have your good parts. Lit candles around the bathtub will give your body a nice, soft glow.
- The warm water, especially if you use bubbles, massages your skin, leaving you feeling like you’ve been touched all over. We don’t get touched very much in our busy day. The bath resurrects this sense and you feel like you’re being hugged. Baths are particularly good if you’ve got no one to hug you.
- If you add oils and perfumes, you activate another sense that gets ignored, the sense of smell. Many different aromas can change your brainwaves into a meditative and relaxed state.
- When the water starts to cool, you turn on the tap, and the sound of the water falling into the soapy tub water, is deep and rhythmic, and again, triggers your relaxation response.
- You can read, watch t.v., or even have a conversation, on the phone or in person, if you’re up for it. Heck, you can even text somebody if you’re so inclined.
- And something you can’t do while taking a shower is drink wine, or eat chocolate (well, I guess you can eat chocolate in the shower, but it isn’t the same). You certainly can imbibe while you’re luxuriating in a bath.
Taking a bath is an event. Taking a shower is a chore.
Bathing incorporates all five senses, and maybe a sixth when you add Isochronic Tones to the mix.
How Using Isochronic Tones Enhances Taking Bath
- You don’t need headphones, so you can play the recording as background music.
- Because isochronic tones encourage the firing of both hemispheres of the brain, experiencing all the sensations in the bath will feel even more 3-D.
- Your senses will run at a much higher, sensitive level.
- The water will feel silkier, warmer…more soothing.
- The smell of the bath oil will envelop your entire being, not just your olfactory system.
- The sound of water running into the tub will sound like a rushing waterfall falling into a deep canyon. You’ll feel like you’re in some exotic location.
- The candle light reflected in the bubbles will hypnotize you and transport you to another dimension.
- And the taste of the wine, well, that’ll be an experience all on its own.
Taking a bath while listening to isochronic tones will either relax your mind, body and soul, or have the opposite effect of invigorating you.
It’s all about what you intend for your experience. Isochronic tones will take that intention, and magnify it.
You just might never take another shower.
