What is Neurofeedback?
Neurofeedback is a drug-free, non-invasive, and painless technique that images the brain in real time. It is often used to improve cognitive situations unresponsive to medication or psychotherapy such as ADHD, anxiety, depression, brain injury, migraines, seizures, chronic pain, addiction, and more. With over 50 years of positive case studies and scientific publications, it is used by thousands of licensed health professionals around the world.
These conditions have shown to be responsive to neurofeedback.
- Brain injury
- Chronic fatigue
- Lyme disease
- Memory loss
- Substance abuse
The process is simple. During the first session, we record brain waves for six minutes with eyes open and six minutes with eyes closed. This data is used to create a personalized brain map, which identifies unhealthy brainwave patterns and connectivity issues in an easy-to-read format. Your map is then used to develop a customized protocol to realign brainwaves, which changes timing and activation patterns in the brain.
Training sessions are just 30 minutes. To begin, sensors are placed on the part of your head that the brain map indicated needs attention first. Then you’ll watch a movie or listen to music of your choice while wearing photic light glasses. A computer monitors brainwaves in real time and gently guides brainwaves into healthy patterns. The number of sessions varies depending upon the need. Results are often permanent or you may need only minimal maintenance training.
