Sleep issues, including inability to fall asleep, frequent awakenings during the night, and waking up early without being able to fall back to sleep, are frequently related to stress, anxiety, and depression. Minimal amounts of sleep have been proven to significantly affect productivity throughout the day and can have a serious negative impact on our physical and mental health.
These issues, combined with the extra stressful thinking associated with them, cause the body’s normal “fight-or-flight” physical responses to interfere with sleep.
Neurofeedback for Sleep Issues
Both the National Institutes and the American Academy of Sleep Medicine have stated that neurofeedback used in conjunction with relaxation training can help sleep problems.
The key to a good night sleep is to master your brain’s “off-switch” located at the back of your brain.
Neurofeedback brain training reduces fast beta waves and increases slow theta waves which is the perfect recipe for consistently good sleep.
Used together with relaxation training neurofeedback helps you recognize when you are having exaggerated physical responses to stress and what you are responding to.
See Images of Your Brain
Brain maps use EEG technology to take pictures of the flow of electricity throughout your brain. These pictures help define exactly what kind of problem you are dealing with, guide treatment planning, and specifically answer how Neurofeedback can help. Bain maps can even show where medication might help, such as stimulants that your doctor might prescribe to help offset sleepy brainwaves.
We use brain maps extensively and every neurofeedback client begins with a comprehensive assessment report. The brain map images help you clearly understand your individual electrical patterns, the highs and lows in your brainwaves, and your unique opportunities for healthier brain balance.
A Personalized Approach
Neurofeedback provides a very customized approach for each individual client. Our brain map assessment compares your brain to a normative database, pinpointing target locations and brainwaves for change. We obtain measurable, quantitative feedback every session so we can see real progress. Brain maps make what is normally an invisible thing visible, with simple understandable pictures.
Neurofeedback clears up slow and fast brainwave imbalances that block healthy neurological processes, freeing your brain to achieve its full potential, with lasting effects that maximize your brain power.
