Stress and Pain Management Educatio

How does relaxation look to an EEG (electroencephalogram)?


A: Beta brain waves (13-22 cycles). Normal waking state. The pattern changes as abdominal breathing and the relaxation practice begins.
B: Alpha brain waves (8-12 cycles). This reflects the Relaxation Response, a calm peaceful state of mind with many physical benefits.
C: Theta brain waves (4-7 cycles). Deeply relaxed state, but alert.
