Harmony™ was created for clients and patients who prefer guided imagery (hypnotic metaphor) to achieve states of deep relaxation. In such states, self-generated images of health, healing, well-being, optimal performance, and creative visualization become more profound and powerful. In such states patients have eliminated nervous habits such as nail biting, experienced breakthroughs in creative blocks, and have reduced distress levels associated with ill health and medical procedures such as chemotherapy.
Harmony™ is a synergic combination of a well-tested hypnotic dialogue and a proven harmonic that increases the strength of brainwaves associated with mental quieting. In such states of mental and physical quietude, self-created images are slowly experienced with attention to all of the senses. Thus, patients immerse themselves in a slowly progressing image and sense the smells, visual images, feelings, and body sensations associated with the desired state. The desired state can be a successful theatrical performance, a state of recovered health, the continuance of the flow of a work of fiction, a state of self-contentment, or a successful foul shot in soccer.
Many patients find that using Harmony™ just before bedtime helps promote rapid sleep onset. Many also report that the quality of sleeps appears to improve as well in that they wake up more refreshed. Dream recall appears to be enhanced as well.
Many people find Harmony™ to be particularly useful to induce states of relaxation and clearing the mind of distressing thoughts and worries.
Seniors seem to be particularly fond of Harmony™ for daily relaxation and quieting.
To maximize the benefit of self-generated images, users should carefully script the desired imagery. For example, an athlete can imagine in great detail a successful foul shot. The image would include the body feelings associated with the maneuver, the smell of the grass, the warmth of the sun, the sound of the crowd, the encouraging statements of team mates, the fulfilling feeling of deep breaths, etc. Images should be very detailed and should be experienced slowly once the harmonic sounds start on the Harmony™ CD.
For health imagery, one can script feelings of recovery such as going for a walk, having friends drop by, eating meals more robustly, feelings of contentment, smelling odors associated with health, as well as the specific healing. Harmony™ can also be used during medical procedures such as dialysis to help reduce feelings of discomfort and distress.

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.

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.
