Information reported by individuals and/or by professional practitioners about the use of Hemi-Sync® Products.


  • “The tapes [Surgical Support Series] helped greatly in reducing fear and stress during the whole ordeal. I was able to stay calm and reduce pain with the aid of commands. I woke up in recovery with none of the nausea or brainfog I was told to expect. I was able to celebrate good news that the tumor was contained when I returned to my room and was speaking on the phone right away. I never used pain medication outside the hospital. I used the tapes for all in-patient and out-patient surgeries (for port insertion and removal) with the same result.”


  •   “I took the Chemotherapy Companion tape to all of my chemo treatments. I was always anxious when I got to the hospital, but as soon as I turned on the tape, I was calm and relaxed again.”     – Diana Purvis, Nellysford, VA


  •  “Before Chemo, my sister (an M.D.) told me I was going to be very, very sick. I used the Surf tape, doubting anything could calm me down. Miraculously after about 20 minutes I was calm and very heartened by the experience. During 12 heavy duty chemo treatments over six months, I was able to remain calm as I listened to the tapes before, during, and after the procedures, six of them overnight in the hospital. I never got sick except for fatigue, which started only with the eighth treatment. Before that I was able to travel, remain active and even walk miles at a time. After second look surgery, I was declared cancer-free and even though I still had four more chemo treatments to go, I began to bounce back very quickly. A month after my last chemo treatment (three months after the second look surgery) I was canoeing, hiking and snorkeling. My oncologist and nurses at a renowned regional cancer center had never seen anyone go through the protocol so well.”  – Lynne Locatell, Bend, OR


  •  The scheduled doses of morphine were no longer controlling the pain of his terminal cancer. When the doctor started continual morphine drips, it was hard to know if he was sleeping or not because even when awake, he wasn’t really here. His wife played the Pain Management tape and he very soon fell into a deep sleep with his abdomen breathing rhythmically. In the morning he was much more alert and asked for more tapes. Energy Walk was his favorite. The following day he was even more alert and asked the doctor to remove the morphine drips. He passed away peacefully this morning.


  •  Report from psychologist: The patient’s cancer continues to spread and he has been in considerable pain. He had been taking large amounts of medication: 125 mg of Tegretol three times a day, 12-15 cc a day of Dilantin, Darvocet every four hours, and Zantec. He had also been taking 11cc of Methadone four times a day and this was recently changed to morphine. Despite all the medication, his pain was poorly controlled.  I introduced him to the Hemi-Sync® Pain Management tape to use at home, and he finds it helps reduce pain between medications. After only four sessions, he is now seeing me on an “as needed” basis. The Pain Management tape has furnished the backbone of his treatment program.


  •  My husband was diagnosed as being in Stage III of testicle cancer. Surgery would kill him, we were told. Chemo was the only hope and, even with that, his chances of survival would be 30%. Throughout four months of chemotherapy I watched him lose his hair, lose weight, be violently ill from the side effects.
  • The mass was reduced in size, though still huge in terms of medical safety. His doctors advised surgery even though there was very high risk that his lungs were now too weakened by chemotherapy drugs to withstand anesthesia for a ten-hour operation. We started using the Surgical Support Series days before the surgery, and consulted (and educated) the anesthesiologist about using the tapes during the operation.


  • The ten-hour operation took four hours. The surgeons were able to remove the tumor mass intact and no live cancer cells were found.


  • Report from a social worker: A 72-year-old widow with cancer was admitted to Hospice, and asked for a relaxation tape because, “I’ve never been a nervous person, but I’ve been climbing the walls since the chemotherapy.” The Hemi-Sync® tape Deep 10 Relaxation was left with her. The following week she reported, “I haven’t been taking as many pills since I began listening to the tape. I had been taking one pill every four hours or less. Yesterday, I only took one pill all day. I know the tape is helping me.” She also reported improved sleep.


  • Although nervousness and restlessness were her frequent complaints, she lay quietly after listening to the Surf tape, finally opening her eyes and saying, “I’m too relaxed to move.” She also was delighted with the tape Energy Walk and said, “I played the tape twice today and it quieted my nerves. Not only does it help and relax me, I feel that something is happening in my body, and I know it is doing something for me. I played it again today and counted my breathing with and over the cancer. It makes me feel all over better and relaxed. I went off to sleep.”


  •  About a patient whose cancer had recurred and metastasized, the doctor said, “She listened to Hemi-Sync® tapes (Metamusic, Gateway Experience, and Going Home) while undergoing five courses of chemotherapy. Everyone who knows her, including myself, has been impressed with her level of inner peace, her ability to be “in the moment” and take delight in small pleasures. Other feelings are there too– anger and fear–but they don’t overshadow the joy and peace.”
