Neurofeedback San Diego
Neurofeedback is an interactive, non-invasive method that helps you retrain your brain for healthier well-being. Neurofeedback works to balance and optimize your brain with advanced computer technology to assess brain wave activity in real-time.
The electrical impulses that your brain generates result in brain waves. The millions of neurons in your brain communicate with each other. By tracking and analyzing your brain wave patterns, we can help you improve overall brain function in areas like thought patterns, stress levels, and emotions.
What are the benefits of neurofeedback?
Neurofeedback offers many benefits. If you have emotional stress and anxiety, it can help you retrain your brain to respond more positively to stimuli that produce stress and anxiety. If you struggle with behavioral issues, neurofeedback can help you develop better brain wave patterns to change your responses. Neurofeedback can also help high achievers improve their already good performance by optimizing brain function.
Many patients report improvement:
- Memory and focus
- Better mental clarity
- More restful sleep
- Better moods
- Levels of impulsivity and anxiety
Scientists have identified five types of brain wave patterns:
- Delta brain waves: sleep, regeneration, mental healing
- Theta brain waves: emotions, creativity, daydreaming
- Alpha brain waves: subconscious, relaxation
- SMR (sensorimotor rhythm) brain waves: focused relaxation
- Beta brain waves: critical thinking, focus, attention
By changing dysfunctional brain waves, you improve your performance, emotions, and challenging symptoms.
How does neurofeedback work?
You are an active participant with neurofeedback. You help yourself in the healing and improvement process. We place electrodes across your scalp to measure your brain’s electrical activity. You will feel no discomfort. A clinician will help you understand real-time displays to help you self-regulate your brain functions.
If you lose your focus during the neurofeedback, the computer will prompt you to refocus. Within a few sessions, you can learn to control your own brain activity to reproduce healthier brain wave patterns.
You enjoy long-lasting benefits from neurofeedback. Your brain learns healthier, more efficient methods of functioning, and it will continue to develop new, healthy pathways after the neurofeedback session has concluded.
