Neurofeedback targets the four primary brainwaves

  • Alpha
  • Beta
  • Delta
  • Theta

Each of these brainwaves is responsible for regulating the active and subconscious aspects of your body.

Delta Brainwaves

are associated with deep, dreamless sleep and regeneration. Delta brainwaves occur when you are asleep and are responsible for healing the body.

Theta Brainwaves

are associated with light sleep or extreme relaxation. When your subconscious takes over you start producing Theta brainwaves.

Alpha Brainwaves

occur when you are awake but relaxed and not processing much information. When you first get up and right before you fall asleep, you are generating Alpha waves, as well as when you close your eyes to rest.

Beta Brainwaves

are associated with the mental state most people are in during the day and most of their waking lives. When you are alert and focused, you are producing Beta brainwaves.

While each of these brainwaves is responsive for different body functions, they all are equally important to your health and well-being. Researchers have known for decades the correlation between irregular brain waves and common neurological conditions, and neurofeedback is the first field to directly target these irregular brain waves and restore them to normal ranges.
