More about Dr. Jeffrey Thompson
Dr. Thompson has been experimenting with sound since 1980 in Virginia in the Holistic Health Center that he had established there. At the time, this was the largest Center of its kind in Virginia. His experiments were in using exact sound frequencies to make Chiropractic spinal adjustments, cranial adjustments, stimulate and normalize organ function and balance Acupuncture Meridians.
Dr. Thompson is recognized as a worldwide expert in the field of brainwave entrainment frequencies incorporated into musical sound tracks. A consummate musician and composer in his own right, he has established a method for using modulated sound-pulses for Brainwave Entrainment for changing states of consciousness for optimal "Mind-Body" healing.
His first recording ISLE OF SKYE was carried by major music distributors in the US within it's first month of release. Within the first six months it was adopted by the American Hypnotherapy Association for its use in hypnosis. In the years since, Dr Thompson has generated over 60 Brainwave Entrainment compact disks and audiotapes sold in 26 countries and used by Holistic MD's, Psychiatrists and Psychologists, Chiropractors and other bodywork professionals as well as the general public. His tapes and CD's are carried nationally in major stores and catalogs: Barnes & Noble, Borders, Waldenbooks, Crown Books, Sam Goody's, Tower Records and the Delta Sync Sleep System CD Set carried through national TV ads by TIME / LIFE.
He is currently on the faculty and has research and clinical offices at the California Institute for Human Science (CIHS - a graduate school and research center) in Encinitas, California. He teaches two 40-hour courses in sound therapy techniques ("Behavioral Psychoacoustics" and "Clinical Neuroacoustics"), recognized by the state of California as part of the core curriculum for the Clinical Psychotherapy and Human Science Masters and PhD programs at CIHS.
He has worked with Deepak Chopra, created 7 tapes with Louise Hay, done the sound programs for conferences with Bernie Seigel, Barbara Marx Hubbard, Bru Joy, and Susan Jeffers. He has worked with NASA and JPL with plasma-wave audio recordings sent back from the Voyager Space Craft and researched their effects on the subconscious mind for healing and emotional release.
His work has been part of research projects at the NeuroPsychiatric Center at UCLA and researched at the Royal Ottawa Sleep Research Center in Canada. His work has been chosen to be part of the nationally funded CSCAT (Center for the Study of Complimentary and Alternative Therapies) Program at the University of Viginia Medical School and his recordings have been used with patients during surgery and in the oncology departments of hospitals in Pennsylvania. He is currently part of the Complimentary-Alternative Medicine Research and Therapy Association at Scripps Hospital, San Diego, California.
Dr Thompson has appeared on FOX Evening News Los Angeles, CNN Worldwide Reports, numerous cable access shows, San Diego Channel 10 Evening News, San Diego Magazine, ELLE Magazine, Psychology Today Magazine and a host of San Diego Newspapers.
