ASD and AHD symptoms can be directly related to an imbalance of brainwave function. For example, an excess of Delta energy can cause the loss of focus and concentration typically seen in ADD patients. Too many Alpha waves – this can lead to slower information processing, and an inability to do multiple tasks without difficulty. Can`t sit still? Too much energy in Beta waves on the right side of the brain.
Neurofeedback training is an all-natural technology that can provide long-lasting improvements for children and adults.
For example, many autistic clients struggle with communication with others. This is frequently due to an excess amount of brain energy in the Delta frequency.
Neurofeedback can improve the balance of brainwave function in the brain, creating the opportunity for significantly improved behavior and communication.
Neurofeedback Can Improve These Imbalances
There are 4 basic brainwave frequencies – Delta, Theta, Alpha and Beta. All 4 of these brainwave patterns are present all of the time, but they are present in different amounts, depending on what you`re doing, and also how old you are. The imbalances measured can give the needed information to design a personalized neurofeedback training protocol for you.
For example – Anxiety is typically related to an excess of Beta brainwave energy on the right side of the brain. ADD symptoms – the loss of focus and concentration is usually noted when an imbalance in Delta brainwave energy is measured.
Regardless of the challenge you`re facing, this “Brain Map” provides an excellent starting place to begin improving your brainwave balance and decreasing the symptoms caused by them.
For the patient, all that is needed for neurofeedback training is for them to sit back, relax, and watch a video or movie they find interesting. While they watch the video, our computers will be measuring their brainwave activity.
If they lose focus due to too many Delta waves, the movie dims and the sound drops down. This dimming acts as feedback to the brain, letting it know it’s not operating within normal parameters.
Over time the continuous feedback helps the brain to develop new, more efficient neural pathways. As a result, they are able to think and communicate more clearly. This decreases their frustration, and also improves their ability to learn new things.
Neurofeedback is a safe, natural approach in improving brain function.
One Parent`s Success
“I’m thrilled to say my son’s condition has improved without the use of additional medication! We have seen a huge improvement in his focus all around. Improvements in his grades at school, focus on the soccer field and his home life. Thank you, Brain Wave Center Staff!” Jules LM
First We Measure The Actual Imbalances
This is done using a time-tested technology known as an electroencephalogram (EEG). It`s a painless, easy test – we place a cap on the head that allows the computer to measure your actual brainwaves.
The data is used to create a customized training program to correct the imbalances that are likely the cause of the symptoms in the first place.
The Training Is Fun
All the patient needs to do (child or adult) is come in, sit down in a comfortable chair, and watch a movie or video that they pick. A normal training session is 30 minutes long. During that time, we will place two small sensors on the scalp that measure the brainwave output in real time. Just like in real life, if your brain speeds up while you watch the movie (you get fidgety, or anxious) – this is too much Beta energy. When this excess is detected, the movie dims, and the sound decreases.
This is a signal to your brain to slow down. Over time, the brain creates new, more efficient neural pathways that allow you to think in a calmer, healthier manner.
Long Term Results
This learning process is known as operant conditioning. It`s not only fully natural, but safe, and produces permanent improvements in brain function, since the new neural pathways remain in place after the training is completed. Just like when you learned to tie your shoes, once your brain develops the pathways needed, they are available for use whenever you call upon them.
