What Is Neurofeedback?
Neurofeedback is a technique that can help improve performance and enhance abilities without the need for medication.
It is used worldwide for a wide variety of people to enhance their abilities to live healthy and more productive lives by themselves, and with others. Neurofeedback helps train your brain to be more flexible, adaptable, and capable of learning. Do you have mental issues such as depression, anxiety, PTSD, insomnia, or many others? Do you have problems concentrating/focusing, memorizing? Do you want to just further improve your ability to keep on the task at hand or other cognitive demands of your job? If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, then Neurofeedback can be a helpful therapy to help you get to the point where you may be able to say “no”. Neurofeedback is not just limited to the questions I asked, but may also be used for a variety of other situations that could help you enjoy your life even more with fewer limitations.
How Does It Work?
Neurofeedback (or EEG Biofeedback) treatment is a passive and non-invasive therapy. Neurofeedback works by putting electrodes (metal disks or a cap) on top of your head to monitor your EEG (brainwaves). The brainwaves are read by the computer and you receive audio/visual feedback when set goals are reached. The process is almost instant and due to this your brain learns how to function in a healthier way. Every time you have changed in your life, your brain is demonstrating the fact that it is responsive to what happens around you or to you. Due to this, as the training progresses, your brain figures out what to do better and learns to continue doing so even after training. New changes will be discussed to allow the positive changes to continue.
Treatments are typically conducted twice a week. Once a week sessions can be used; however, change is slower or not possible depending on severity of symptoms. In general, sessions are conducted in multiples of 20: 20 sessions for mild symptoms, 40 for moderate, 60+ for severe. Depending on the type of Neurofeedback used on you (normal, Neuroguide, LENS) the sessions may be reduced. When starting out, I require 20 sessions due to the learning curve of your brain. To also help improve the rate of progress, please see QEEG information.
Through Neurofeedback, don’t be passive in your life, but active in deciding how you want to feel!
