What exactly is neurofeedback?
Before we dive into the details of remote neurofeedback, let's first learn a little more about the treatment itself. Neurofeedback, also known as EEG biofeedback, is a type of brain-based learning that helps you gain better control over your brainwaves.
Our brainwaves are responsible for how we think, feel, and act. And when the frequency of your brainwaves is too fast, or alternatively, too slow, dysfunction occurs. This can lead to a number of difficult-to-deal-with symptoms.
For example, people with anxiety often have too many fast brainwaves and not enough slow-moving brainwaves, which help you relax. Neurofeedback displays your brainwaves in real-time and helps you learn how to better control them through a reward-based system. As you practice more and more, your brainwave changes become second nature and can lead to long-lasting relief from the condition or injury you are experiencing.
How does remote neurofeedback work?
Remote neurofeedback works very similarly to in-office neurofeedback, only you train your brain at home rather than at a clinic. First, you will complete a qEEG brain map. This can be done remotely or in-person. The findings of your brain map will help identify which areas of your brain are out of balance and it will be used to create a customized treatment plan for you.
Here at Braincode Centers, we partner with Neuropeak Pro, a top provider of remote neurofeedback training solutions and equipment. You will be paired with a coach and sent a headset. Your coach will help guide you throughout your personalized training program so you can achieve long-lasting relief.
Just like at in-office visits, your training will measure your brainwave activity in real-time. With instantaneous feedback, you will become aware of your optimal and undesirable brainwaves, which over time, will help you gain greater control of your reactions to stimuli. In doing so, your brain will create new neural pathways that will help it operate more efficiently.
Who can benefit from neurofeedback
Neurofeedback can benefit just about anyone! We all have stress in our lives and it's no secret we've all wished at one point or another for better focus or concentration. Neurofeedback helps improve overall cognitive performance and can help you achieve optimal brain function.
Neurofeedback is also used to treat a number of mental health disorders and brain-based conditions, including:
- ADD & ADHD
- Attachment disorder
- Memory loss
- Mood disorders
- And TBIs
