Quantitative Electroencephalography (QEEG) is a diagnostic tool to help thousands of Americans see results in their mental health progress. QEEG provides a comprehensive view of the brain using noninvasive technologies. By reading brain waves and electrical impulses, therapists can garner a better understanding of their patients’ brain functioning and limitations to open the door to targeted neurofeedback therapy that can provide results fast.
QEEG, also known as brain mapping, provides a guide for the therapist to better understand why their patient experiences certain mental health symptoms. They can compare the results of the individual to a normative database of subjects, where there are no symptoms and determine specifically what areas are statistically atypical and need improvement. By understanding where overactive and underactive areas of the brain are struggling to produce normal functions, the therapist can provide nuanced treatments based on the individual. The trial and error nature of traditional talk therapy and other non-science based therapy is reduced significantly when QEEGis introduced in tandem. QEEG therapy can be used for many disorders.
QEEG and Neurofeedback For Anxiety
Anxiety can oftentimes be caused by high levels of beta waves in the brain, among other abnormalities. For most, minimizing anxiety is a lifelong battle, but it doesn’t have to be. With QEEG and subsequent neurofeedback treatments, you can live and work symptom-free.
QEEG and Neurofeedback For Depression
Depression comes with a myriad of symptoms, from lethargy and intrusive thoughts to insomnia and ongoing mood changes. While these symptoms can be caused by events in life, they typically coincide with maladaptive brain wave patterns. QEEG and neurofeedback therapy can help you retrain your brain and reduce depression symptoms.
QEEG and Neurofeedback For Insomnia
Many insomnia patients have areas of the brain that are highly active when the eyes are closed and a restful state should occur. QEEG will show which areas of the brain are most affected, and provide your therapist with guidelines for your neurofeedback treatment.
QEEG can help patients with these and many other disorders to lead healthier, fuller lives. Talk to Reboot to learn about your QEEG and neurofeedback options.
