The Sussex Hypnotherapy Centre has developed an experimental music track which was created in an unusual way, by having someone entering into a hypnotic-like trance state as they create the music, the music has been designed to entrain the brainwave patterns of listeners into a calm and focused state of attention, ideal for relaxing, studying, learning or focusing.

The Sussex Hypnotherapy Centre (http://www.sussexhypnotherapycentre.co.uk) has developed an experimental music track 'Deep Relaxation Ocean Waves With Calming Music' to help listeners enter a calm and focused state of mind without any effort, which may be 'the World's most relaxing music' due to the unusual way in which it was made.

This music was created in an unusual way, by entering a hypnotic-like trance state, it wasn't created to send people to sleep, or to relax people in the way that they would normally think about relaxation. It was designed to entrain the brainwave patterns of the listener into a calm and focused state of attention. The Sussex Hypnotherapy Centre created this music to help people effortlessly enter a calm and focused state of attention without needing to 'try' to enter that state.

This music from the Sussex Hypnotherapy Centre was created naturalistically by sitting at an electronic piano, beginning to enter a trance, and allowing the experience of entering a trance to pass down into the hands to 'play' the experience of entering trance on the electronic piano. Trance states can take many forms, there are very active trance states and very relaxed trance states. Often it would depend on what the purpose is for the trance. In this case it was to induce a calm and focused state of attention so whilst entering into this calm and focused state of attention the internal rhythms were played out and externalised via the electronic piano.

The next stage was to listen back to this having gathered other sounds for the track that can act as punctuation points, and as points to draw focus back to keep the calm and focused momentum going. The sound of the sea softly rolling into shore, recorded in Bognor Regis, was also added to help to entrain the breathing of the listener. Silence and pauses are also used to focus attention and to deepen the trance state, as is the use of consonant and dissonant cords to create areas of tension and relaxation which mirrors how a hypnotist might guide a subject into a hypnotic trance by asking them to tense and then relax muscles.

"If you try to deny something it often gets stronger, so if someone tells you to relax and you are tense, you often get annoyed or more tense, whereas if you tense up first it is easier to then relax" says Dan Jones, Founder of the Sussex Hypnotherapy Centre

The first test of this relaxation music from the Sussex Hypnotherapy Centre was with a Neurosky Mindwave Device using a biofeedback app where the aim is to float a ball in the air. The challenge is to remain in a calm and relaxed state to keep the ball floating.

Jones said about testing the relaxation music "Normally I can float the ball for about 30 seconds maximum, then I would discover myself trying to concentrate, whereas with this relaxation track I found that I entered a calm and focused state of attention effortlessly, without having to 'try' to achieve that state, and without feeling the need to concentrate."

This music has been tested successfully with individuals using the Neurosky Mindwave biofeedback device and in therapeutic groups with adults that were experiencing high emotional levels of distress, anxiety, anger and depression.

Because the music was created whilst entering a calm and focused state of attention it works a bit like hypnosis, as listeners listen to the track they connect with it and build rapport with it, this leads to them drifting deeper into that state as the track evolves.

The music has repeating rhythms,so when listening to the track people connect with the music and then enter a calm and focused state of attention and cycle deeper and shallower in and out of that state, going deeper and deeper with each cycle.
