Neurofeedback is a non-invasive form of biofeedback that uses real-time displays of brain activity(qEEG) to improve brain function.
Your Brain and Neurofeedback
The human brain is resilient. While it was once believed our brains were hardwired from birth, advances in neuroscience have proven the brain can change. Neuroplasticity, or brain plasticity, is the capacity of neurons and neural networks in the brain to change their connections and behavior in response to new information, sensory stimulation, development, damage, or dysfunction. Neurofeedback is a safe, medication-free way of harnessing the brain’s plasticity to improve brain function.
With neurofeedback, the brain is learning to self-regulate- in real time. It challenges the brain to be more efficient by giving feedback and rewarding positive change. The brain then seeks more of this change, eventually leading to functional changes in the brain and symptom reduction. Many clients report permanent relief from symptoms without the unpleasant side effects sometimes associated with mental health treatment.
What is Neurofeedback?
Neurofeedback, also called EEG biofeedback, is a non-invasive treatment that can optimize and balance your brain. At our clinic, we start every patient out with personalized testing that includes a qEEG. This diagnostic scan gives us valuable information about the functioning of your brain. With neurofeedback, we can retrain areas of your brain that may be unbalanced or dysregulated to function better. Neurofeedback is an evidence-based treatment that can result in lasting changes and improvement of many mental health conditions.
What conditions can Neurofeedback help with?
Neurofeedback is safe for children and adults of all ages and may be helpful for a variety of conditions, including:
- Behavioral disorders
- Bipolar disorder
- Mood Disorders
- Chronic pain
- Memory problems
- Sleep problems
- Traumatic brain injury
What to expect during Neurofeedback
Every Neurofeedback session begins by placing electrodes on the scalp that monitor your brain waves. These electrodes are attached to a computer program that teaches you to self-regulate your brain function while participating in fun and interactive games. Neurofeedback harnesses your brain’s neuroplasticity, and eventually, you no longer need neurofeedback sessions to maintain these changes.
