What Is A Brain Map?
A Brain Map is a non-invasive test used to measure brainwave generation in the brain itself. Technically, it`s a specialized form of an electro-encephalogram. First done in 1924, the EEG is a well-known tool for determining brain health.
The Brain Map process is painless, safe, accurate and non-invasive. There really is no better tool for analyzing brainwaves and collecting customized data for each individual.
The Goal Is To Identify Areas Of Brainwave Imbalance
A brain map involves scanning the brainwaves on the surface of the scalp using a nylon cap. The system then compares your brainwave activity to a database of established standards of normal brain function to determine where the imbalances are that may be the cause of your symptoms.
Why Are Brainwaves Important?
There are 4 main brainwaves, and each of them regulates a different part of our body. From sleep, to emotions, to critical thinking, we would not be who we are without our brainwaves. Let’s learn about them:
This frequency range bridges the gap between our conscious thinking and subconscious mind. It helps us calm down when necessary and promotes feelings of deep relaxation. Too many Alpha waves in the left hemisphere of the brain is typically associated with depression.
These brainwaves are more prevalent when we are thinking logically. They are involved in conscious thought, logical thinking, writing, reading and stimulation. Having the right amount of beta waves is important if we are to focus and complete school or work-based tasks easily. However, too many can lead to anxiety, and in extreme cases, full blown panic attacks.
These are the slowest recorded brain waves in human beings. They are associated with the deepest levels of relaxation and restorative, healing sleep. Adequate production of delta waves helps us feel completely rejuvenated after we wake up from a good night’s sleep. Challenges with focus and concentration are related to an excess of Delta waves when we are awake trying to think logically.
This particular frequency range is involved in daydreaming and sleep. Theta waves are connected to us experiencing and feeling deep and raw emotions. Too much theta activity may cause depression and make people “highly suggestible” because they are in a deeply relaxed, semi-hypnotic state. Theta can improve intuition, creativity, and makes us feel more natural. It is also involved in restorative sleep.
How Does A Brain Map Help?
What makes our system so unique and successful is the ability to analyze each brain and generate a customized protocol to correct the measured imbalances. These protocols are unique to each person, and are designed to bring the brain back into balance, eliminating many brain-based symptoms as a result. Think of it as a customized care plan for your brain.
