Delta brain waves are the slowest brain waves that the human mind generates, and they occur at frequencies of 4 Hz or less.
Delta brainwaves dominate during deep sleep. It is during this deepest state of complete relaxation that your body heals itself and resets its internal clock. The delta state is a dreamless, completely unconscious sleep state that allows your body and brain to rest and repair. Without it, you could not survive!
