- Sounds for stimulating an emotional experience
- For use with clients under treatment for emotional dysregulation and mood disorders
Emote™ is a treatment procedure designed to facilitate emotional experience, release or abreaction for clients under treatment for emotional dysregulation and mood disorders. Emote™ is particularly useful as a treatment aid for clients in neurotherapy. It is designed to evoke emotional expression after brainwave anomalies have been or are under treatment. Such clients include those with a history of severe depression who have recently titrated off antidepressants. These clients often manifest as emotionally blunted and respond efficiently to EMOTE™ for facilitating feeling. Clients with post traumatic emotional stress can often be abreacted during therapy sessions with exposure to EMOTE™.
Subliminal stimuli (sounds) are presented at energy levels (i.e., sound pressure levels) that are below the conscious recognition threshold. These stimuli are processed subconsciously and can affect mood, behavior, physiological arousal, and neurological state. Research has indicated that subliminal stimuli used in Emote™ can influence the autonomic nervous system (e.g., heart rate) and the central nervous system (e.g., brainwave amplitude). Laboratory and clinical trials have indicated that the subliminal sounds used in Emote™ increase slow frequency brainwave amplitude. During states of increased slow frequency amplitude the client is often more susceptible to emotional stimulation.
Emote™ is generally used after the client has been in neurotherapy to correct any dysregulations in the frontal regions of the brain. It is also usually best to delay use of EMOTE™ until the client has been titrated off any psychotropic medication so the client can beneficially experience emotional reactions. Some therapists have found Emote™ to be useful for assessing therapeutic progress in that clients report feeling relaxed rather than anxious during exposure.
EMOTE™ is indicated as an adjunctive treatment for clients in therapy for the treatment of emotional stress, emotional dysregulation and mood disorders. This product is not designed as a stand-alone treatment for such conditions but to be used adjunctively to other therapies.

We have been using your Attention CD in the Yonkers School District since Feb, of 1998. We have had outstanding results using the tape and have noticed a significant reduction in aberrant behavior in the children using the CD. In each of the 3 sch...
In experimenting with Dr. Swingle's Attention CD, I discovered that the sound produced a calming effect for me. I was particularly pleased with the impact it had for reading as it definitely increased my concentration and ultimately my comprehension.
...In all probability you have forgotten my visits with you approximately ten years ago when I was referred to you by A.K. However, the reason I am writing you is to see if it would be possible to obtain a copy of the relaxation CD you gave me whe...

Our problem was that we originally only ordered two Attention CDs. The two teachers who had the most immediate and dramatic results with their students would not loan their CDs for the rest of the staff. When I listen to the CD, it appears to have...

My client made more progress after one use of (Sweep™) than in weeks (of regular EMDR therapy).

My patients prefer Sweep 3 to 1 over the EMDR stimulator.

I'm fairly jaded by 'gimmicks' and not easily impressed. Spectra however is really special and very impressive. Loved the instant meditative mental state that was stimulated. ...just the thing [that] alcohol treatment centres need. Unless there's ...
