You are not alone. It is possible some are unaware that they suffer from insomnia. Lack of sleep can affect you both physically and psychologically. If you have any of the following symptoms, you should pay attention:
Consistently feeling exhausted in the morning despite sleeping over 7 hours
Feeling tired and sleepy during the day
Mood swings or irritability
Difficulty concentrating for long periods of time
Impaired executive functions such as your ability to retain information. Etc.
Per the Centers For Disease Control, 1 in 3 adults do not get the recommended 7 or more hours of uninterrupted sleep. The CDC goes as far as declaring insufficient sleep a public health epidemic.
Lack of sleep is linked to short-term changes in mood as well as an increase in your risk for obesity, high blood pressure, heart disease, diabetes, improper immune functioning, and worse still premature death.
Athletes need a good night’s rest to perform at a high level. You need sleep for optimal muscle recovery and growth. A lack of sleep can cause us to be easily irritated thereby affecting our relationships with those around us, etc.
A strong cup of coffee or an energy drink can take you only so far. The fact is that if not resolved, the negative effect of insomnia will definitely catch up with you.
Of course, you understand what is at stake here and we are sure that from time to time, you have thought or taken action to help your insomnia only to revert back to old habits. It is time to break the cycle. Together with healthy habits, neurofeedback has proven to be very effective in treating sleep disorders.
Brain Training is a non-invasive support method that has been proven to help patients improve their sleep by assisting them to fall asleep faster and improve their overall sleep quality.
We place sensors on your scalp to record your brain’s activity and measure your brain waves to get instantaneous feedback on your current brain functioning. The feedback gives us information on which brain waves are responsible for which functions.
Once your brain wave activity has been mapped and recorded, the results are compared to ‘normal’ activity found in individuals with similar traits. The comparison helps us identify the regions of the brain that may be experiencing abnormal activity.
After that, we begin your brain training sessions to help you rebalance your brain wave patterns and rewire normal brain function. The goal is to promote a healthier self-regulation of your nervous system which in turn will help you overcome your insomnia.
