I've done this with a tape--I think it was called the Silva method (years
ago, not sure). It worked wonderfully for deep relaxation.

There are tutorials in Cool Edit (shareware PC audio program available from that guide you through various "brainwave audio"
exercises; the program has rudimentary synthesis capabilities, so you can
construct an entire session of various waves. It's lots of fun! (must
develop equivalent MOTM patches to put the crowd to sleep at my next gig...)
