Why Did Kathleen Ongena Start This Business?

“In 2006, while living in Belgium,” explains RDR Founder Kathleen Ongena, “my daughter and I went through a very traumatic experience. It was so bad that there was intense sadness and damage to my mind and soul. I felt like my life was over, and I had no idea how I could ever again find pleasure in waking up in the morning. So I went to my doctor, thinking that medication could help me “see the light” again. Instead, she told me about Alpha Theta Training. I would have done anything at that point to feel better, so I contacted the training center for more information.

What are Brainwave Sounds?

As described in the October 1973 Scientific American journal article (pp 94-102) titled “Auditory Beats in the Brain,” published by Dr. Gerald Foster of the Mt. Sinai Medical Center, Kathleen’s research is based on the use of Therapeutic Sounds, also known as binaural sounds, a phenomenon where stereo headphones are used to direct sounds/signals separately to both ears. Binaural sounds are a consequence of the interaction of perceptions within the brain, and it is believed that they can be used to investigate some of the brain’s processes.

Who Can Use Brainwave Sounds?

RDR Wellness Sounds are for anyone who would like to experience an optimal state of mind and balance between their emotional, mental, and physical being. Any person, animal, or plantlife can benefit in various ways that includes stress reduction and induced relaxation. The RDR sounds assist the body and brain by realigning and reestablishing new neural pathways (brainwaves) that may be blocked or weakened by acute or chronic conditions. They can also assist in coping with traumatic events and injuries. Minors (under the age of 18) may also use RDR wellness sounds with written approval and participation of their parents or guardians.
