What is Neurofeedback

Neurofeedback is simply biofeedback for the brain. Reaching a state of centered focus in life can be difficult or impossible if you have brain waves that are out of sync. Neurofeedback can help restore the right amount of each brainwave, and ensure that all of the brainwaves are in harmonious balance with each other.

 

Neurofeedback is also called EEG biofeedback and has been around since the 1960s. Scientists have learned that certain disorders are associated with very distinctive brain wave patterns. Neurofeedback helps balance brain waves, and eliminates or diminishes problem behaviors without the use of medication. Unlike medication, neurofeedback has no physical side effects, and the benefits of neurofeedback have been proven to be long lasting.

 

Many different disorders can be improved or be eliminated by using neurofeedback. First a QEEG is collected. This involves placing a cap on the client’s head and collecting brain wave information from 19 specific sites. This information is processed, and a brain map is produced. The therapist then evaluates the data, completes a comprehensive health history, and then based on both symptoms and goals, develops an individualized protocol of successive neurotherapy sessions. Treatment is noninvasive, is not painful, but does require a commitment. Just as you must work out your body consistently to see results, neurofeedback sessions must be completed two to three times a week to be beneficial. The neurofeedback treatments involve placing sensors on the scalp. The sensors pick up brainwave signals which are first amplified and then filtered through software that works with a computer to generate real time feedback. The brain activity is either increased or decreased in the identified areas until the optimal balance is achieved The typical treatment plan will vary from individual to individual, but most common disorders can be resolved in about 40 sessions.
