NEUROFEEDBACK FOR ANXIETY AND DEPRESSION

 

Neurofeedback Training Offers Help For Depression And It Can Dramatically Help With Anxiety.

There are many ways to help the brain and help alleviate the anxious symptoms—talk therapy, drug therapy, biofeedback, meditation, lifestyle changes—and also a new type of therapy called neurofeedback, an offspring of EEG biofeedback. Neurofeedback Reorganizes The Brain To Operate More Efficiently. It is used by thousands of people to bring more ease, joy and peace into their lives. View our case study video below and learn how neurofeedback works.

What results can I expect?

There is no standard answer to this question because everyone’s central nervous system is unique. While we cannot predict what your brain will do with the information it receives from our neurofeedback training, we can offer a few guidelines.

Clients describe after a neurofeedback session feeling clearer, calmer, lighter or brighter for a few hours after the session – a feeling that typically will last through the week, from one session to the next (weekly sessions being the most common).

Eventually, this new centered way of being becomes their “new normal”. Only if they get thrown off by a negative event  - a bad day at work, chemicals, a knock on the head - might they drop into the way they felt before. But generally, they will not dip as deeply into emotional discomfort and will more than likely bounce back from challenging situations much more quickly and easily. Here's what one of our client's feedback.

“The process is deceptively simple — being hooked up to a neurofeedback device, and sitting quietly. Afterwards there’s a subtle but powerful shift in feeling — I feel more present, and relaxed, and have greater well being. It’s been very effective in working with my anxiety.”

– Robert, NYC


THE RESEARCH

Using the NeurOptimal System for Anxiety

  • Effects Of NeurOptimal® Neurofeedback On Symptoms Of Depression And Anxiety – by Dr. Linda Beckett MD & Dr. Janet McCulloch MD
  • Neurofeedback With Anxiety And Affective Disorders - by D. Corydon Hammond, PhD, ABEN/ECNS: Neurofeedback with anxiety and affective disorders. A robust body of neurophysiologic research is reviewed on functional brain abnormalities associated with depression, anxiety, and obsessive-compulsive disorder.
  • Neurofeedback Treatment Of Depression And Anxiety – by D. Corydon Hammond. A robust body of research documents that there are biological predispositions that often exist for depression, anxiety, and obsessive–compulsive disorder. However, new research has shown that medication is only mildly more effective than placebo in the treatment of these problems. In treating these conditions, neurofeedback (EEG biofeedback) may offer an alternative to invasive treatments such as medication, ECT, and intense levels of transcrancial magnetic stimulation. This paper reviews the neurofeedback literature with these problems, finding particularly positive research support for the treatment of anxiety disorders. New findings on the neurofeedback treatment of depression are presented.
