Your brain creates simple electricity through an electrochemical process, which allows it to carry out all of it's functions, including learning, communicating and managing emotions. Brain mapping is a method of recording this electrical activity in the form of brainwaves and analyzing the results.
Brainwaves occur at different frequencies depending on what your brain is doing. For example, when your brain is under-aroused, as occurs when you are sleeping or daydreaming, your brainwaves will be slower.
Just like physical exercise helps the body stay healthy, toned and maintained, training the brain helps it function more effectively and overcome conditions and disabilities where the brain is not working the way it should. Neurofeedback is a technique we can use for directly training the brain to function more efficiently and to treat specific conditions.

Heart rate variability (HRV) is the beat-to-beat variations in heart rate or pulse, which occur naturally during all levels of activity, from running and jumping to sitting still or sleeping. HRV is intimately tied to a person's emotional state, and with biofeedback you can use HRV as a treatment option for a variety of mental and emotional conditions, including anxiety and depression.
