The primary objective of our entire client care team at our West County therapy office is to provide QEEG or brain mapping, stress tests and neurofeedback treatment to relieve stress or stress symptoms, develop stress management strategies for work stress, post-traumatic stress and other causes of stress.
Reintegrative Health also provides testing and Neurofeedback treatment to adults and children with anxiety, depression, ADD or ADHD, autism, Asperger’s, learning disabilities and sensory processing disorder, as a superior alternative to excessive medication.
Brain Maps or qEEG Testing
Brain mapping or qEEG (quantitative electroencephalograph) is a measurement of the human brain and its electrical activity. The brain map is a view of how the human brain functions. To get this information, a mesh cap with 19-21 sensors is placed on the head.
By means of digital computer technology, brain functions are recorded while the person uses different parts of the brain. For example, first the person is sitting with their eyes open for a short time, then sitting with their eyes closed, reading an article and finally working on simple mathematical tasks. This mind map presents a picture of the brain or a series of mind maps of each brainwave frequency and the average level of activity for each frequency.
Brainwave frequencies are different depending on whether the person is sleeping, relaxing or working. The human brain map is then compared to a database of people similar in age and gender to the client in order to determine where the human brain activity is too high or too low.
Finally the QEEG results in a collection of brain maps and detailed information summarizing how the human brain functions in each of the different frequencies or brain states. This information helps to determine the underlying deficiencies in the brain that may be contributing to the issues of adults and children with stress symptoms from work stress, post-traumatic stress and other causes of stress.
Neurotherapy or neurofeedback therapy is often suggested for people with stress symptoms or for the management of stress. Neurofeedback therapy and training typically involves using three sensors, some types of neurotherapy use a full mesh cap and nineteen sensors on various locations on the head and ears.
For neurotherapy or neurofeedback therapy which is using three sensors, one sensor is placed on the ear and the other two are positioned on the scalp at specific locations determined by the information from the brain map or QEEG.
The client sits at a computer station with two monitors and a technician or neurotherapist assisting in the neurotherapy or neurofeedback therapy. After taking an initial brain map reading of the client’s brainwaves, goals are set to increase or decrease a particular frequency. These goals pertain to something the brain needs to work on, for example relaxing or focusing.
