What is Neurofeedback?
Neurofeedback is a tool to help improve your brain.
Many of us have developed brain pathways that do not serve us, causing unwanted symptoms. A few examples include behavioral issues, ADHD, developmental delays, anxiety, depression, obsessiveness, sleep problems, PTSD, anger outbursts. There is also research showing that neurofeedback helps with migraines, chronic pain, concussion (TBI), addiction and seizures. The common thread here is that these are all BRAIN issues.
With neurofeedback, your brain changes ITSELF!
When your brain changes, these issues improve. Neurofeedback measures brain activity, like brain waves. It helps you make more or less of certain brain patterns. By changing brain activity or changing the way one area of the brain talks to another, you can improve attention, control of your emotions, and your behavior.
Neurofeedback is not only for treating problems.
Neurofeedback also improves performance by changing the timing of the brain. That can help anyone: performing in school, business, or sports.
Neurofeedback helps give you an edge.
Neurofeedback is different than counseling. Counseling is usually focused on changing your skills, your behavior or how you think.
Neurofeedback is focused on changing your brain, which also will change your skills, behavior and how you think. You might not realize how much your brain affects your mind.
There are parts of your brain that help you pay attention, stay calm, help you manage your mood and emotions, or that help you sleep.
How do you do neurofeedback?
First, we put sensors on your head. We measure your brain activity with a specialized computer system. Once your brain learns new patterns, which will take practice, you remember it.
When you train brain activity, your brain figures out how to balance its own activity.
So: once you train the brain, does it stick?
Well, you do not forget how to ride a bike, even if you have not ridden it in years. It is the same with neurofeedback. Once your brain learns, you do not tend to forget it. There are exceptions, particularly diseases like Alzheimer’s, Dementia, and other neurological issues. But even in these situations, there are always ways to train your brain.
The changes you make with neurofeedback can, over time, have a profound effect on learning, memory, attention, mood, migraines, and more.
