Across alpha regeneration

Synthesized sounds take us from the scenarios of the past day into the oasis of relaxation. Silence prevails, you immerse yourself in a world of sound. What remains is a flight of thought over flowering gardens, past all walls of our civilization, to this old tree that has put down its roots here for more than 100 years. It represents the recurring blossoming in the course of the world. The old man has been sitting here for all his life and tells this story about the only thing important in life ... love.

Underwaterlove alpha focus

Water is not only an elixier which gives us strength and is an indispensable component of ourselves, but is also the habitat for a large variety of creatures and plants. On a trip into the unexplored depths of our fascinating water landscapes we discover undreamed-of beauty. Immerse into a crystal clear sea of satin and enjoy iridescent colors and forms of the underwater world.

Didgeridoo alpha activate

From time immemorial the didgeridoo has been used by Australian Aborigines as cult instrument. The overtone wind instrument produces rhythmic vibrations deeply affecting the body, thus leading to a synchronization, so to speak a "reset", of various body frequencies. Let yourself be carried off by the trance of the musician into the night of the Australian bushes.

Chanting delta transcendence

Overtone singing is a singing technique in which the partials of a sound wave are selectively amplified and made audible. Each pitch that we hear contains additional pitches which determine the tone color or timbre of the pitch. Everyone can experience these pitches in his or her own voice by slowing down the modulation of the vowels. In the schamanic singing of many cultures the overtones play an important role to contact other consciousness dimensions which transcend the usual forms of our perception.

Bionik theta visualize

"We are not the innovators we think we are; we are just repeaters." Often inventors have only copied what plants or animals have been doing for thousands of years. Applying the principles of nature is so common that a name has been coined for it: BIONICS.

Lovely theta visualize

The flashing ascent of our galactic, great giver of warmth and light - the sun. A spirited, beautiful day full of live and unique moments. The entire color spectrum of nature followed by an inspiring sunset on the horizon. A vespertine, crackling open fire blazes against the background of a crystal-clear night with full moon and thousands of jingling stars. The cuddly warmth of the glowing logs makes the body comfortable and conveys a languorous feeling of timelessness.

Asien Highlands delta regeneration

In the poikilothermic areas of our earth the life of man is constantly affected by the forces of nature. Where the summer rain falls downhill onto the leafy canopies of the tropical forests, the fresh high land wind blows over the seemingly endless high mountain ranges, driving enormous wafts of mist, there is a place of relaxation for anyone. Who responds to the call of nature far from the densely populated civilization experiences the overwhelming diversity of species of primitive times.

Vibrations delta sleep

"Vibrations" is a journey through a world of unheard and yet strangely confident sounds touching your inner self. The sound of the crystal sound bowls of Carlos Michael, starting gently and getting more intensive later on, creates multilayered vibrations which can be physically experienced. Experience yourself as a vibrating part of the infinite space.

Unique: many more sessions with synchronized light and sound by professional authors are available in our Session-Shop. With the free editor software, 'LaxEdit', you can create classic impulse sessions as well as sessions based on any other audio content in the form of MP3. Light and sound can be exactly synchronized and adjusted with numerous adjustable parameters such as frequency, color, color gradients, etc ... to 1/10 Sec.


The LAXMAN breaks new grounds: the patented LAXMAN glasses can create every color of the light spectrum. The light is transmitted indirectly onto the closed or open eye. Interference patterns generate kaleidoscopic structures in all colors. These structures are programmed in accordance with neurophysiological research findings. Additionally, a Ganzfeld effect is generated to enhance the experience. The device can also be used in color and light therapy to counteract the lack of light in winter. In a session, you also wear headphones to enjoy the auditory stimulation. Contrary to traditional systems, the LAXMAN audio range also comprises ambient and nature sounds. But the LAXMAN also creates the classical impulse frequencies known from conventional mental training systems as well as Binaural-beats and Hemicircle Sounds, which provide a very special sound experience. These impulse frequencies define rhythms the brain will happily follow. The device has 22 pre-installed programs or sessions for various situations that run 20 minutes each. Professional users have the option to set frequencies and other program characteristics manually. The expandable memory card provides enough space for a large number of self-created sessions or MP3 titles. With the user-friendly Session Designer software LaxEdit, convert your own audio tracks into psychoactive audiovisual Laxman sessions tailor-made to your individual tastes.

How does it work?

Basically, the LAXMAN works on simple, natural principles: everybody knows that it is relaxing to watch a flickering flame or the glittering surface of a lake. The LAXMAN uses underlying physiological mechanisms which are known as the ?frequency following response?. The relaxation you feel when gazing into an open fire, for example, is caused by a change of the brain wave pattern. The frequency of these patterns defines our mood. Visual and auditory stimuli may influence this frequency from the outside - as can be seen in EEG tests. Over the last decades, this principle has been the subject of numerous studies. The great majority of the scientific tests showed extremely positive results. A profund study with the Laxman at the Charité in Berlin shows an improvement of concentation of about 14% and an improvement of Relaxation of about 20% after a three weeks application. The system very effectively creates a state of relaxed clarity and concentration. Furthermore, the receptiveness e.g. for study contents is increased significantly, and the perfusion of the brain is optimized ? this supports mental fitness.
