Do You or a Family Member Experience Migraine Headaches?
Brain Mapping and Brainwave Training Can Offer Long-Term Relief!
AN EFFECTIVE DRUG-FREE PROGRAM TO HELP WITH MIGRAINES, THAT YOU PROBABLY NEVER HEARD OF
If medical intervention has not helped your migraine headaches or you would like to discontinue or avoid using medication, neurofeedback could be your answer.
Migraines are very common and reported to be the third most prevalent illness in the world. If you have suffered from a migraine or experience them often then you know that they can be terribly painful and often debilitating.
What are Migraines?
Migraines are complex neurological phenomena, commonly initiated by a trigger, that result in severe headache (or pain in other parts of the body). Neurons misfire and the brain’s electrical system and blood flow change suddenly. Some of our clients call it ‘the freight train effect’. As they feel the migraine coming on, anxiety mounts as the “here we go again” feeling appears, and the symptoms roll in like a freight train – no stopping them.
Migraine headaches are typically a severe throbbing and recurring pain on one or both sides of the head, and are often accompanied by at least one of the following: extreme sensitivity to sound, light, touch, and smell, nausea, vomiting, visual disturbances, dizziness, or numbness and tingling in the extremities or face.
What Causes Migraines?
- Lifestyle triggers: changes in sleep patterns, fasting, skipping meals, dehydration, alcohol, over-exertion, exercise, and stress.
- Environmental Triggers: Strong smells, bright or flickering lights, smoke/pollution, altitude, air pressure, motion sickness.
- Weather-related triggers: bright sunlight, humidity (high and low), sudden or big changes in temperature, changes in barometric pressure, etc.
- Hormonal Triggers: changes in hormone levels, pregnancy, menstruation, menopause, hormone replacement therapy, oral contraceptives.
- Medication triggers: overuse of pain medication (both over the counter and prescription, oral contraceptives, and medication side-effects).

Why didn’t my doctor check my Brain Electrical Activity?
Physicians commonly check the electrical activity of the heart by doing an EKG. But checking the electrical activity of the brain rarely takes place because most physicians are not familiar with neurofeedback and don’t have the equipment or skills to analyze brain electrical activity by performing a Brain MAP. The common medical approach to migraines is to use pharmaceutical drugs to alter the incidence and intensity of headaches. While these medications may be temporarily successful in reducing symptoms, they don’t retrain the brain back to health and migraine headaches often break through most drug regimens – sound familiar?
How does Neurofeedback help with Migraines?
Brain Map guided neurofeedback retrains the brain and diminishes abnormal brain electrical activity. Scientific evaluation of neurofeedback has demonstrated that it can significantly reduce the frequency of migraine headaches. In one study, neurofeedback was found to be MUCH more effective than drug therapy in reducing migraine frequency and 54% of the neurofeedback group had COMPLETE REMISSION of migraine headaches.
“QEEG-guided neurofeedback appears to be dramatically effective in abolishing or significantly reducing headache frequency in patients with recurrent migraine” (Walker, 2011)
Neurofeedback is a SAFE and EFFECTIVE
Nondrug approach for treating Migraine Headaches Naturally.
Neurofeedback is painless, non-invasive, uses no drugs, and can be expertly and easily performed at The Brain Wave Center.
Neurofeedback focuses on retraining the brain. Each neurofeedback session lasts 20-30 minutes. Addressing migraines usually requires at least 20 sessions.
Is there evidence Neurofeedback works?
Yes! For your convenience, we have placed several research papers on our website showing how neurofeedback can be effective for these symptoms. They can be found here:
The Benefits of Neurofeedback:
- Safe and Non-invasive for Adults and Children
- May Eliminate Medications
- Permanent Results
- Sessions Are Enjoyable
- Improves Overall Brain Health
Did You Know?
Migraines Are Associated With
ABNORMAL BRAIN ELECTRICAL ACTIVITY
The most common cause of migraine headaches progressing from occasional/episodic headaches to unrelenting chronic migraines is Medication Overuse! This takes place when pain killers, triptans (migraine medication), or other medications are used for 2-3 days per week, consistently, for months. (Migraine Research Foundation).

A migraine is a strong headache that often comes with nausea, vomiting, and sensitivity to light. It can last hours or days.
Migraines are different in everyone. In many people, they happen in stages. These stages may include:
- Being sensitive to light, sound, or smell
- Food cravings or lack of appetite
- Mood changes
- Severe thirst
- Constipation or diarrhea

Migraines Can Influence Your Emotional HealthAnd Are Associated With Anxiety, Depression, And Other Mood Issues
The brain dysregulation is seen in people with migraines also predisposes them to experience greater amount of stress, overwhelm, anxiety, depression, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and other mood issues, neurofeedback has been shown to be effective for reducing the frequency and severity of migraine headaches and can successfully address the anxiety, depression, PSTD, and other associated emotional health issues that are commonly found in people who get migraine headaches.
