Improve your life by training your brain
Neurofeedback may be able to help you with:
What is Neurofeedback?
Neurofeedback is the evaluation of brain activity patterns through quantitative electroencephalography (qEEG) and subsequent instruction of brain function self-regulation.
How does Neurofeedback work?
Our neurofeedback system maps the brain’s activity in real time. Our technicians are trained in interpreting the brain’s activity and teaching techniques for regulating its activity.
Neurofeedback helps the brain learn new patterns in order to reduce the symptoms of ADD/ADHD. Neurofeedback can improve attention and self-control in children and adults without the need for prescription drugs.
Neurofeedback helps to retrain the part of the brain that controls stress. By training the brain not to overreact to stress, neurofeedback can reduce symptoms of anxiety and panic attacks without prescription anti-anxiety drugs.
Neurofeedback promotes awareness and moderation of brain activity during exposure to sensory input. This can produce a calming effect in children with autism, resulting in better control of emotions, increased focus, and improved social skills.
Perception of pain depends on both outside signals and the brain’s interpretation of signals. Chronic pain is a self-reinforcing cycle; the presence of pain can increase pain sensitivity. Neurofeedback retrains brain patterns in order to break the chronic pain feedback loop.
Targeted retraining of overactive and underactive areas of the brain helps people with depression regulate brain activity for better mode and motivation. Neurofeedback can provide relief from depression without prescription anti-depressants.
Traumatic Brain Injury
Physical damage to the brain can cause long-lasting changes in brain function. Neurofeedback helps people who have had traumatic brain injuries redevelop brain activity patterns in order to improve anxiety, mood, depression, memory lapse, or learning issues associated with brain injury.
Obsessive Compulsive Disorder
Neurofeedback helps to retrain brain wave patterns in parts of the brain associated with compulsions. The initial qEEG scan locates the parts of the brain that are “stuck” and subsequent training helps develop healthier brain wave patterns in affected parts.
There are many causes for poor memory. Neurofeedback therapy can be customized to improve poor memory based on the underlying cause. Learning new brain wave patterns can increase concentration, focus, and memory.
Neurofeedback can be used to target retraining of specific aspects of brain function associated with seizures. Because seizures are caused by abnormalities in brain function, neurofeedback can be used to stabilize brain activity and reduce or eliminate seizures.
Stroke causes brain that can cause long-lasting changes in brain function. Neurofeedback can help people who have had a stroke redevelop brain activity patterns in order to improve speech, mood, memory, muscle control, and reduction in symptoms of post stroke syndrome.
The brain regulates sleep. By retraining brainwave patterns associated with sleep, neurofeedback can help normalize sleep patterns. This can provide an improvement in insomnia, difficulty waking from sleep, nightmares, restless sleep, sleepwalking, and not feeling rested after sleep.
