HOW DOES A BRAIN MAP WORK?
A brain map involves scanning the brainwaves on the surface of the scalp using a nylon cap. This method is known as an Quantitative Electroencephalogram (QEEG) and provides a detailed, accurate recording of your brainwave function. Then, your EEG results are compared to a database of established standards of normal brain function to determine where the brainwave imbalances are.
WHY BRAINWAVES ARE IMPORTANT
Brainwaves are extremely important to how we function. There are 4 main brainwaves, and each of them regulates a different part of our body. From sleep, to emotions, to critical thinking, we would not be who we are without our brainwaves. Let’s learn about each one.
These brainwaves are commonly observed while we are awake. They are involved in conscious thought, logical thinking, writing, reading and stimulation. Having the right amount of beta waves allows us to focus and complete school or work-based tasks easily. Having too much beta may lead to us experiencing excessive stress and/or anxiety.
This frequency range bridges the gap between our conscious thinking and subconscious mind. It helps us calm down when necessary and promotes feelings of deep relaxation. However, if there are too many Alpha waves on the right side of the brain, it can create slower brain processing, negative tendencies, and even full blown depression.
This particular frequency range is involved in keeping you memory sharp. Theta waves are involved when we are feeling deep emotions. Improving Theta brainwave balance can lead to better memory, creativity, and can make you feel more natural. It is also involved in restorative sleep.
These are the slowest recorded brain waves in human beings. They are associated with the deepest levels of relaxation and restorative, healing sleep. An excessive level of Delta brainwave energy is typically seen with individuals struggling with focus and concentration.
THE BRAIN MAP REPORT
What makes our system so unique and successful is the ability to analyze each brain and generate an individualized report that shows where the brainwave imbalances are. This Data is then used to design your personal neurofeedback training protocol. Think of it as a customized care plan for your brain.
