Anxiety Digital Therapy:

Scientific Rationale:

It is well established that the number of people diagnosed and suffering from depression and anxiety is on the increase1. Many of these patients are not responsive to first-line pharmacological intervention or simply cannot use medications for other reasons2. As such, there has been a growing need for non-medication approaches to treatment.

In light of this, numerous studies have been published exploring the role of binaural beats to alter mood states and reduce anxiety-related symptoms3.

It has been found that through binaural beat exposure, study participants can decrease feelings of anxiety by up to 26%4. Furthermore, binaural beats audio rich in alpha & beta brain‐wave entrainment confers the greatest anxiolysis5.

A school of thought now remains that the application of binaural beats in chronic anxiety sufferers can result in improved symptoms and overall mood6. This is further supported by an increase in the number of times participants chose to listen to the recordings, indicating long-term repeatable effects7.
