Put an End to Migraine Symptoms. Naturally!
Training with neurofeedback can be very effective in reducing the intensity and frequency of migraines over the long term, providing real relief for people suffering from migraines. A recent study showed 70% of patients using Neurofeedback experienced at least a 50% reduction in the frequency of their headaches.
How Does Neurofeedback Help Relief Migraines?
Migraines can often be the result of excessive Beta brainwave activity, which can then lead to a migraine headache. Medications, designed to lessen symptoms, provide no help for the underlying brainwave imbalances. As a result, you end up treating the symptoms, not the cause of the headache itself.
First, We Map Your Brainwave Imbalances
To find out if your migraines are related to brainwave imbalances, we perform a Quantitative Electro-Encephalogram, also known as a “brain map”. qEEG`s are nothing new, the first test was performed in 1924. The advances in modern computing has helped put this technology in the lead for drug-free headache relief.
Neurofeedback Training Is Easy To Do.
Once we`ve got your brain map, we will design a personalized neurofeedback training protocol designed to return balance to your brainwaves. Your part in the process is easy – Sit back, relax, and watch a movie!
While the video is playing, small sensors will be placed on your scalp. These are designed to measure your brainwave activity in real time. If your brain speeds up, (typically seen before a migraine headache develops), the video output changes, helping your brain to slow back down. The changes in the video and audio outputs act as the feedback mechanism. Since this feedback is based on the measurements of your actual brainwaves, the training can help your brain learn to remain more balanced. The result – fewer, or in some cases, no more migraines!
The Effects Are Long-Lasting and Safe
This feedback learning process is known as “operant conditioning”. It`s a completely natural process that you brain uses every day when learn anything new. As a result there are no side effects. If you ever learned to swim, or ride a bike, you`re familiar with how the brain uses this process to learn to do new things – with repetition and practice. And, just like learning to ride that bicycle, the new, healthier pathways remain for the long term.
