Your brain's electrical activity (brainwaves), control your emotions, your mood, your anger, and your fear. Your brainwaves control your attention, your motivation, your memory and your impulsive actions. Additionally, your brainwaves control how you sleep, your energy, your digestion and your hormonal regulation. Symptoms occur when brainwaves become dysregulated (over-active or under-active) in a specific region of the brain.
At Westlake Village Neurofeedback Center a Division of the Brain Performance Center, we use EEG brain mapping to objectively image regions of the brain and quantify electrical dysregulation. The EEG brain map identifies cellular nutrient deficiencies and can guide targeted neurofeedback to be a highly effective, non-invasive, non-pharmaceutical and safe therapy with lasting results. Over 85% of our clients have significant improvement in both their symptoms and their subsequent EEG brain maps.
What is an EEG Brain Map?
We offer Non-Invasive EEG brain mapping. We are associated with one of the most technologically advanced neurofeedback facilities in the country. All EEG brain maps are processed using one of the largest and most research-based EEG normative databases. Our neurofeedback protocols are guided by neuroimaging, not solely by symptoms.
Why EEG Brain Mapping is so important:
Helps your therapist identify your neurological type of anxiety, depression, and/or attention disorder as well as any past head injury.
Empowers you and your family to understand the physiological nature of your symptoms.
Identifies specific neurological and lifestyle interventions to help increase the effectiveness of your therapy sessions.
Provides a baseline to objectively measure your progress over time.
Frequently Asked Questions
How Successful is Neurofeedback Training:
More than eighty-five percent of our clients experience significant improvement.
How Long is Each Neurofeedback Session:
Sessions last approximately 45 minutes each and are typically scheduled at two times per week. The course of treatment depends on the results of your EEG brain map, and can run between 20 and 30 sessions.
How Does Neurofeedback Work?
While using audio/video input, your brain is gently trained to stay focused. If it goes "out of bounds" the audio/video will give feedback, attracting your brain's focus and bringing it back into balance again. Over time the brain learns to stay focused naturally and sets up better thought patterns. Thereby eliminating the brain based symptoms that you have been experiencing.
Will I Notice a Difference Right Away?
Some patients have told us that they notice changes right away. Most patients notice changes after 6 to 8 sessions.
Are There any Side Effects?
Neurofeedback is an effective, FDA-approved, safe, non-invasive, and non-pharmacological intervention that should be considered as a type of therapy for mental health struggles, in addition to therapy and medications.
