As the name implies, theta healing makes use of the theta waves being produced by the brain during moments of deep relaxation and meditation. It is an alternative form of medicine that aims to heal physical discomforts by getting in touch with the subconscious.

The human brain, small as it may seem, is a highly complex system of neurons that send out electrical impulses. The brain is capable of emitting five types of brain waves - alpha, beta, theta, delta, and gamma. Each brain wave corresponds to a specific level of activity. For example, the beta wave coincides with the conscious waking state. During this state, the waves are at more than 14 cycles per second. Most of our lives are spent at this state. On the other hand, the alpha waves are emitted when we are in a sleeping state. This happens at a much lower cycle of 7 to 14 cycles per second. It is at this level that people oftentimes experience daydreaming as well as a host of various psychic experiences.

Delta waves, on the other hand, are commonly associated with slow-wave sleep. This type of wave is rarely seen in adults and usually manifests only when someone is intoxicated or having deliriums. They are a common feature in people suffering from dementia or schizophrenia. On the other hand, gamma wave used to be ignored as part of any brain activity. Current studies, however, point to gamma waves as responsible for hyper-alertness and integration of sensory inputs.

Of all the brain waves, it is the theta waves that are closely linked to the subconscious. At 4 to 7 hertz, theta waves are seen as the human's doorway to the subconscious. It is at this level that most deep and profound learning can take place. It is also this brain wave that most practitioners of theta healing make use of.

Because of the access to the subconscious that theta waves afford a thetahealing facilitator, it is at this level that changes in any negative programming or negative beliefs are made. One of the tools that most theta healers use in order to check whether changes in one's beliefs have been changed is called muscle testing.

Because of the wide range of changes that theta healing can bring about, people who facilitate such sessions are not only able to bring about physical comfort but are also able to make the necessary changes in the person's beliefs so as to prevent the repetition of the physical discomfort.
