Neurofeedback Brainwave Training
Neurofeedback training helps heal and stabilize our brain. Neurofeedback improves brain function by correcting and stabilizing the rate of our brain waves so that we can feel better and make more conscious, healthy decisions for ourselves.
Neurofeedback is a fun and non-invasive training program that teaches the brain to change itself and is very helpful in improving attention, mood, behavior, cognition, and more. In simple terms, neurofeedback is positive reinforcement for the brain. It teaches the brain how to be better balanced by feedback through tiny sensors that are temporarily placed on the scalp with a small amount of paste.
Before beginning neurofeedback training, we use an evaluation tool called Brain Mapping to safely survey how your brain is functioning and to create a report that details your strengths, deficiencies, and any abnormalities.
By comparing this information to your symptoms, challenges, and goals, we can identify which neurofeedback treatment protocol is best for you as an individual. We do a follow-up brain mapping evaluation every three months to track your progress and too adjust your training protocol, if necessary, so that your brain function will continue to improve. Brain mapping is part of all new client evaluations.
The neurofeedback device measures brainwaves and teaches the brain to make healthier patterns by rewarding the brain when it does so. Once these healthier brainwave patterns are practiced and learned, the effects of neurofeedback are usually permanent. As someone’s brain learns to improve and better modulate its own regulation, medication can often be reduced. Sometimes, neurofeedback allows medications that weren’t working well to work better.
