NEUROFEEDBACK PROVIDES THE CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM WITH MOMENT-BY-MOMENT FEEDBACK ON ITS CURRENT ACTIVITY. THE BRAIN CAN BE TRAINED TO USE THIS INFORMATION TO IMPROVE MENTAL PERFORMANCE, HEALTH, AND WELL-BEING. WHO IS IT FOR >
WHAT IS NEUROFEEDBACK?
Neurofeedback (NFB) is a more advanced branch of biofeedback that focuses on the central nervous system. Neurofeedback, sometimes called neurotherapy, neurobiofeedback, or EEG biofeedback (EEGBF), gives users information on their brainwave activity. Brainwave activity is measured using EEG technology through sensors placed on the scalp and ears of a client. The information is relayed to the client and trainer by sound and a visual display (video).
HOW DOES NEUROFEEDBACK WORK?
In this video below, Natalie Baker, Advanced NeurOptimal® Neurofeedback trainer, answers: how does neurofeedback work and how can neurofeedback training be effective for anxiety, depression and ADHD.
USES OF NEUROFEEDBACK - WHO IS IT FOR?
People using neurofeedback have experienced relief from ADHD, depression and anxiety, epilepsy, learning disabilities, bipolar disorder, anger, rage, cognitive impairment, migraines and headaches, chronic pain, autism, sleep problems, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
Athletes, business professionals, students, and musicians have also used neurofeedback training to improve mental and physical performance. SUCCESS STORIES: A Case Study on Neurofeedback And Anxiety
What happens in a Session?
During a neurofeedback session, EEG sensors are placed on the head and ears to collect the information about the brain’s activity, which gets fed into the neurofeedback's software on the computer. You sit and listen to music (children can watch a movie or listen to their favorite music). When your brain is about to do something new, i.e. change states, it does a certain kind of “electrical dance”, which the software identifies. When that “dance” is detected the computer program stops the music in milliseconds. What the stopping of the music does, is trigger the orienting response and the brain “comes into the present” and sees what it was about to do and also takes in information about the external environment. And all of this it does in milliseconds and outside of your conscious awareness.
WATCH: What happens in a session?
A good analogue is like when you are daydreaming and in a daydream you (your brain) are not aware of what is happening, not until someone calls your name (the music stopping in neurofeedback) and you simultaneously realize that you were lost in a daydream, and recognize the quality of that daydream, as well as take in information about the here-and-now.
Why NeurOptimal® Neurofeedback?
We chose the most advanced neurofeedback equipment to use in our clinics and for home unit rentals: NeurOptimal® Dynamical Neurofeedback.
It is safe, non-invasive: a drug-free method to alleviate symptoms and optimize your brain and health!
Unlike other neurofeedback systems, NeurOptimal® is designed to focus on the central nervous system - the hub of all functions in the human body. Therefore, the specific type of problem, be it physical, mental or emotional, becomes less important. It is not surprising then, that clients have experienced successful outcomes across a broad spectrum of complaints.
Our clients typically find NeurOptimal® neurofeedback systems effective in resolving issues in five general categories:
