How does relaxation look to an EEG
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
C: Theta brain waves (4-7 cycles). Deeply
relaxed state, but alert.
