Neurofeedback, also known as EEG Biofeedback or Neurotherapy, is a ground breaking technique that challenges the brain to better function. This powerful brain-based technique has been successfully helping clients around the world for over 30 years. It is a non invasive procedure with dramatic results for a multitude of symptoms.
Think of Neurofeedback as a personal training session for the brain. Training the brain to function at its maximum potential is similar to the way the body is exercised, toned and maintained. Brain training exercises the neural pathways that allow the brain to have better function in a variety of areas. Neurofeedback is direct training of brain function, by which the brain learns to function more efficiently and allows an individual to learn voluntary control over his/her brain's electrical activity or "brainwaves". This is a gradual learning process. It applies to any aspect of brain function that we can measure. Neurofeedback is training in self-regulation. Self-regulation is a necessary part of good brain function. Self-regulation training allows the central nervous system to function better.
Neurofeedback is a learning process in which symptom changes take place gradually, over a period of time. Multiple sessions per month are usually required. The brain is trained to change maladaptive patterns associated with symptoms. Eventually most people notice an improvement in mental, emotional, and behavioral concerns which may also include a reduction in previously required medications. Once the new patterns are learned they often last with no further treatment required.
