What is neurofeedback?
Neurofeedback is a natural, non-invasive, reward-based treatment for your brain. A healthy brain needs both fast- and slow-moving brainwaves to function optimally. Neurofeedback, which is a unique type of biofeedback, works to improve the electrical activity in the brain and promote self-regulation. In doing so, this therapy addresses the source of your unwanted symptoms.
What kind of symptoms and conditions can neurofeedback treat?
Neurofeedback can be an effective treatment for a wide range of symptoms and conditions. These may include anxiety, depression, ADHD and other focused-related disorders, ASD, memory loss, trauma, PTSD, migraines, sleep disorders, concussions, and traumatic brain injuries.
Who could benefit from neurofeedback?
In addition to treating the above-mentioned mental health conditions, neurofeedback can also be used to increase your overall mental performance. Many professional athletes and high-level business executives seek neurofeedback treatment to help increase their work performance.
Others seek neurofeedback simply because they want to improve their energy levels or decrease daily stress.
How does neurofeedback work?
Neurofeedback uses EEG sensors that are attached to your scalp to measure brainwave activity in real-time. When your brainwaves are within normal ranges, you receive a reward—usually, a movie or song plays. When your brainwaves move outside normal ranges, the movie or song stops.
This signifies to your brain that something is out of balance and it needs to figure out how to get the movie or song to play again. Over the course of your treatment, your brain will learn from this real-time feedback and long-lasting structural changes will occur. From there, your brain will function in a more optimal way long after your neurofeedback treatment has ended.
