"At this point, I have been using Hemi-Sync tapes with a handful of cases at an institution for the severely and profoundly retarded, with about 1650 residents of all ages in a variety of treatment centers. About 36% of the residents are administered some form of psychotropic drug—often to aid in the control of behavioral problems. The two cases discussed here fell into that category."
Six participants varying in degree of hypnotizability (two lows, two mediums, and two highs) were exposed to three sessions of a binaural-beat sound stimulation protocol designed to enhance theta brainwave activity.

Elisabeth Kubler-Ross began this discussion by relating early experiences in her life that were very formative and had much to do with goals she has set and the vigor she has applied toward fulfilling them.
In February 1986, HOC began to investigate the potential of The Monroe Institute (TMI) auditory system with selected patients. HOC is a non-profit agency that provides specialized home care for patients in the last stages of life-threatening illnesses. Nurses, other health professionals, and a corps of trained volunteer patient/family support practitioners (hereafter: support practitioners) address problems of pain, fear, anxiety, and loneliness in order for the end of life to be experienced as a natural event within the warm environment of the family.
"These and other successes inspire me to work and hope for more complete integration of psychiatric and psychological services into the hospital system. I am negotiating with the various services to make Hemi-Sync more readily available. Hospital television already has a relaxation channel. Current offerings could be expanded to include Hemi-Sync presentations and instruction in using a variety of Hemi-Sync tapes, as well as consciousness expansion methods. Both patients and their caregivers stand to benefit from a partnership between standard interventions and complementary resources."
This paper discusses the application of Hemi-Sync technology, in four different formats, to enhance the instructional environment during the delivery of a conflict-management workshop for administrators. An overview of workshop content objectives is presented, as are the results of a basic statistical analysis of participants’ perceptions.
"Our group’s purpose remains the same as it was last year: to develop and test a package of Hemi-Sync® tapes which will facilitate transitions from one stage or condition of life to another and finally transform the experience of passage beyond life as we know it."
