Latin dance music helps us exercise and stimulating our brain overriding signals of fatigue and giving us a renewed level of energy.

 

A process called Frequency Following Response which is a consistent sound wave has been shown to change your brainwaves.

 

Brainwaves form the communication between the neurons that control our thoughts, emotions and behaviours.

 

Your brain has 100 billion neurons that use electricity to talk to each other. .

 

Our brainwaves change according to what we’re doing and feeling. When slower brainwaves are dominant we can feel tired, slow, sluggish, or dreamy. The higher frequencies are dominant when we feel wired, or hyper-alert.

 

Brainwave speed is measured in Hertz (cycles per second) and they are dived into bands deliniating slow, moderate, and fast waves.

 

The frequency of this brainwave depends on what you are doing.

Brainwaves 101:

  • Beta (14–30 Hz): awake, concentrated, alert. We spend most of the day here.
  • Alpha (8–14 Hz): meditative state, awake but relaxed, twilight state between sleep and waking, improved memory recall.
  • Theta (4–8 Hz): light dreaming, access to unconscious mind.
  • Delta (0.1–4 Hz): deep dreamless sleep, restorative, complete loss of awareness.

 

One of the newest methods for altering your brainwaves is brainwave entertainment.

 

Brainwave entertainment is an easy fun way to alter the function of your brainwave.

 

So relax, listen to the various tempo latin music has to offer and let your brain and feet work together.
