Using MindSpa to Gain Maximum Benefit
MindSpa utilizes audio and visual brainwave entrainment technology. This is a natural approach to health and wellness similar to listening to relaxing music or staring into a warm flickering fire.
It is personal commitment that is the key to success. Sleep and stress issues, particularly when they are chronic, can be resolved in most cases without the need for medication. For most, medication can offer short-term relief but it does not resolve underlying health issues. Sleep medication use over long periods can be disruptive to true quality deep-wave sleep.
Stay with your program of regular use for a minimum of 4-6 weeks. This can mean as little as 3-4 times per week, or as often as twice per day. It is up to you and what your life allows.
However, for at least for the first two to four weeks we do recommend daily use. A 20-30 minute session once per day in the morning or mid/late-afternoon will produce noticeable results within a month.
It is important to understand that the effect is cumulative. Think of it like you would physical exercise. We all know exercising on a regular basis will improve muscle tone and health. Exercising your mind is the same thing. MindSpa will help you to condition you to more easily enter the relaxed, focused state of mindfulness meditation – the alpha brainwave state.
When you first begin using MindSpa, we generally suggest that you start with any of the first six sessions for the initial couple of weeks and then progress to the longer and deeper sessions, if you prefer. However, in every case and you can receive the same excellent benefit from the shorter, lighter alpha sessions. Continue to use them regularly.
If you find, for example, Session 3 is one of your favorites, then use it as many times as you like. If you prefer to switch up the sessions, by all means please go ahead. You will tend to naturally gravitate to the sessions that are most effective for you. We do suggest a minimum of 22 minutes per session for maximum benefit.
Which session should you use to attain a specific goal?
This is the most common question we receive. What makes MindSpa both easy to use and effective is that there is not necessarily a right or wrong session choice as each individual is unique. Using MindSpa on a regular basis is the key to success.
Please make sure you review your manual before use (manuals found here). As we explain, use MindSpa in a quiet location where you will remain undisturbed for the entire session. It is best to be situated in a comfortable chair or lying down.
Care is suggested when using at night as the white or blue led light can affect your circadian rhythms, your internal body clock. – Our green or red led glasses are excellent for evening use.
Generally, we suggest use during the day, mid-afternoon, or early evening. Late at night, we suggest using our green led glasses, or the sound alone, especially if you notice any disruption in sleep patterns while using MindSpa in the evening.
We have many testimonials from folks who say they have received immediate benefit, generally we suggest that you please be patient with yourself and give MindSpa time to provide its long-lasting results.
It can take a few weeks to change long-term stress or sleep disruption patterns. MindSpa works as we promise but think of it as part of making minor changes to your lifestyle that will result in an overall positive effect.
Doing a session
Our full-spectrum white and blue combination led glasses are designed for everyday use. We suggest white led use in most cases.
- Use the system with eyes closed.
- Take a few slow, deep breaths into your diaphragm instead of taking high, shallow breaths in the upper part of your lungs before and as you begin your session.
- Pay attention to your various muscle groups and practice letting go of physical stress.
(See our section on Reducing Stress)
- Set the sound and lights to a level that is comfortable for you. The brighter you can comfortably set the lights, the better. If it causes you to blink while your eyes are closed, reduce the light level.
If you find yourself feeling like you are falling asleep during the session, this is okay. You are still getting benefit. If you come out of your “sleep” at the end of the session, you are actually in a deeply relaxed hypnotic/meditative state.
You may have an initial period of feeling a little tired immediately after a session. This feeling will quickly pass. Within a few minutes to an hour you should notice feeling refreshed with more energy and enthusiasm. If you go into a deep slumber, it is due to your overall sleep deficit.
These are the basics... You may hit a couple of plateaus during the first few weeks of use. This is normal. Just stay with your program, you will get past these and will find you are less stressed, more alert and sleeping longer and more soundly.
To help with sleep issues look at slight adjustments to lifestyle
– Reduce caffeine intake particularly in the latter part of the day. Cease intake after 2-3PM.
– Have supper earlier in the evening
– Avoid snacks before bed
– Go to bed at the same time every night. — critical to long-term sleep hygiene
– Create a sleep sanctuary. Keep it on the cool side and remove distractions
– Go light on alcohol as this can be a major source of sleep disruption
– Avoid bright light sources before bedtime, including electronics and common room lights
There are numerous health benefits associated with regular physical activity. It is best if you can get a minimum of 45 minutes of some form of exercise each day. But avoid exercise starting about three hours before bedtime. If your busy lifestyle simply does not allow for that, or other issues come into play, even adding a walk around the block, parking a little further away from your destination, or walking up the stairs can be highly beneficial.
Additional Tips for MindSpa Use
Tip 1: Establish a routine to use MindSpa every day, such as right as you wake up in the morning or mid-afternoon.
Tip 2: Take MindSpa with you to work, school or while traveling and keep it accessible. If time is short, even a few minutes of use can be beneficial.
Tip 3: Use a cue such as an alarm on your phone to remind you to use MindSpa at that time every day until you establish a regular pattern.
Tip 4: If plan to use it for 20-30 minutes in the mornings before heading to work, set a nightly alarm reminding you to go to bed at an appropriate time to wake up with ample time for use.
Tip 5: If you use a calendar, put a check mark next to days you use MindSpa to measure your progress and to keep yourself honest about how much you have used it.
Tip 6: Keep MindSpa in plain view of at home or work, such as on your nightstand or desk. It can be easily forgotten when placed in a drawer. Keeping it where you see it increases its accessibility, which in turn will increase use.
Using MindSpa’s relaxation programs can significantly help to reduce certain undesirable high amplitude activity in just a few weeks. Many report experiencing immediate effectiveness. When you encounter common stress producing situations you will be better able to maintain an inner calmness with enhanced control of your life. Conversely, when you feel like you need a quick pick up, or when you just do not feel as mentally sharp as you would like to feel, MindSpa can help here as well.
