Brainwave Optimisation

Brainwave Optimisation  is an individually tailored process of balancing and harmonizing the brain. Brain function manifests as electromagnetic energy which can be captured and analysed through a non-invasive manner of placing sensitive electronic receivers, or electrodes, on the scalp. These sensors record the brain’s activity, determine optimal patterns, and then design sound schematics which are given back to the brain to guide it into optimal functioning. By giving your brain the opportunity to “see” itself through these personalized training exercises, you can bring balance and harmony back to your brain.

Relieve trauma with Brain Optimiztion

As you probably already know, the brain is responsible for all your attention and concentration, your memory, your way of problem solving and your way of seeing, hearing, feeling things. In essence, your brain makes you tick like you tick right now! So when you are reading these words it is your brain that makes you understand what I am saying here. It controls how quickly you get my message, how smoothly you read this page and how much you will remember of this information.

Traumas, both emotional and physical can knock brainwaves out of balance. It is not possible for any of us to go through life without experiencing a measure of trauma. Whether we experience the death of a loved one, a physical injury, being in or witnessing a car accident, or experiencing the pain of the end of a relationship, we all endure a measure of trauma. Many of us also suffer from some measure of brain energy imbalance. When this is the case, a difficult period in our life can exacerbate the imbalance, with unpleasant consequences. The trauma will fall into one of two categories: a trauma of infringement or a trauma of abandonment. In an act of self-preservation, the brain responds to the threat. Abandonment causes parasympathetic dominance – a freeze response. Infringement results in a sympathetic dominance – a fight or flight response. For the brain to work well, it needs to be in a balanced state. In such a state, neither the sympathetic nervous system, nor the parasympathetic nervous system dominates.

When we talk about balance, we are talking about how the brain’s activity is balanced from one hemisphere of the brain to the other, and also how the different regions of the brain balance with each other between the front and back of the same side of the brain. Brainwave Optimisation facilitates brain balance. It’s like loading a ship so that it’s level on the ocean. When we talk about harmony, we are referring to how energy patterns that vary from low to high exist together in the same region of the brain. If you have ever driven an automobile with one or more tires out of balance, you know the shimmy and shake that an out-of-balance condition can produce.

Well, it’s no different in life when the brain has one or more of its regions out of balance. In such a condition, it simply isn’t possible to live a life of excellence. When the brain is balanced and in harmony, it can have a dramatic effect on both the mind and the body. For this reason, brain balance and harmony can be a helpful step to a state of well-being and optimum performance. When the brain is balanced and in harmony, people involved in sports are much more likely to achieve optimum performance in terms of speed, strength, and so on. Writers, musicians, and artists achieve greater creativity and artistic expression. Individuals who feel stuck—who realize they aren’t living up to their full potential but don’t know how to let their true being out—often advance to gratifying business endeavors. Whatever a person’s walk of life, they can gain clarity about their life’s journey.

The ability of the brain to “rewire” itself in response to new stimuli is known as neuroplasticity, or simply brain plasticity. Studies have shown that when a person loses the use of one sense (through reasons other than brain damage), the area of the brain formerly devoted to that sense often becomes available for use by another sense, enhancing the auditory capabilities of a blind person, for example. Another example of brain plasticity is seen in musicians, where the area of the brain related to hand movement often shows greater than normal development.

From this and other research we know that the brain can rewire its own network and thereby optimize its capabilities. Capitalizing on these advances, Brainwave Optimisation invites the brain to become more in tune with itself. Brainwave Optimisation isn’t based on diagnosis and neither is it concerned with symptoms a client may be suffering. Its focus is on the degree of balance and harmony the brain experiences, plus the flexibility it demonstrates when it moves from being at rest to being activated.

Research

Research is the backbone of Brainwave Optimisation. The intensive ongoing research carried out by a team of neuroscientists from Wake Forest School of Medicine, under the direction of lead investigator Charles H Tegeler has both verified and expanded the efficacy and the range of interventions we can offer.
