Neurofeedback helps optimize mental performance by harnessing the power of your own brain.
With Neurofeedback, “training your brain,” is as simple as playing a game. But instead of using your hands to control the game, you use your mind. We place a couple electrodes onto your scalp which measure the mind’s electrical activity, and this in turn is interpreted by the computer into action on a video screen (feed back).
Neurofeedback provides real-time feedback which helps the brain develop consistency and stability in functioning. As this happens, symptoms and/or problematic behaviors diminish. At first glance this may sound strange, but your brain desires to function in an optimal fashion. Many brains develop and maintain this ability naturally, but for those that don’t (or have lost efficiency), neurofeedback can be a powerful tool for training the brain to function in a more optimal fashion.
Brains function using a combination of neuroelectrical and neurochemical processes. Medications target the neurochemical processes. Neurofeedback, on the other hand, targets electrical functioning of the brain; ultimately improving the brain’s ability to efficiently and consistently send messages.
Over time, we train your brain to become more efficient, with the ultimate purpose of long-lasting improvement in your brain’s inherent ability to self-regulate across environments and demands. There is a significant clinical research base showing the effectiveness of neurofeedback for the treatment of a variety of disorders/symptoms and, more importantly, the changes are essentially permanent!
Who benefits from Neurofeedback?
Neurofeedback is a non-invasive, non-medicated procedure which provides safe and effective results for children and adults of all ages.
Our programs have provided help in areas of reading fluency and comprehension, concentration and behavior, stress and anxiety, athletic focus and processing, migraine headaches and tension.
