Babies get to sleep with cradlesongs from their moms. Adults however have different ways of getting a sleep. Yours truly cannot actually sleep unlike others with a radio on or MP3 music playing in the head.

However, you’re the type of person who can actually relax with sound vibrations or is familiar with sound therapy then, a sound machine is for you. A typical white noise machine can enhance your sleeping patterns and reduce your sleep problems. White noise generators produce pleasant sounds that promote relaxation and calmness like the sound of a rushing air.

Sound machines are also used for sound masking and speech privacy in doctor’s offices, counseling centers and other businesses.

I wouldn’t be surprised about this technology as there are many sound waves and techniques using sound vibrations are being used nowadays for so many purposes other than getting sleep or curing sleep disorders.

Have you tried using them yourself? If so, what do you think of them? Are they really effective as advertised? I want to hear your story.

  1. If I’m not mistaken, white noise is some kind of sound that tends to drown out other noises that may cause disturbance of sleep. I’ve in the past bumped into white noise because I dabbled for a while with brainwave entrainment and all researchers said that white noise added as a background to the entrainment sound file increases the chances of the ‘frequency following response’ of the brain to kick in more quickly.

    My experiments a few years ago in this area convinced me that it works. In fact, once in a while, when I really find it difficult to sleep, I’d grab my mp3 player and play some old brainwave entrainment files with white background noise to help me ease into drowsiness. I also sometimes use it as soft background while meditating. I don’t know if these sound machines output the same sounds I created before though.
