What is Neurofeedback?
How does neurofeedback work?
Neurofeedback is a non-invasive process – no injections, pills, etc. We simply connect leads/wires to different parts of the scalp using a paste that washes off with warm water, then connect the other end to a computer. Brain waves are sent through an amplifier so they can be seen on the computer screen and ultimately recorded for analysis.
The leads do not send electrical charges through the brain -- in fact they don't send anything through the brain. The leads simply read and record brainwaves through the scalp, in a way similar to how an EKG reads your heartbeat. The computer makes a sound every time the brain does the ‘right’ thing, and the brain responds to that sound. This adjustment occurs over and over again until the brain has trained itself to stay in a more regulated state. Eventually, the symptoms you were experiencing will no longer be present.
Who benefits from neurofeedback?
Children and adults of all ages use neurofeedback to address everything from sleep disorders to substance abuse and learning disabilities. Most say it dramatically changes their lives, and many say that they see a difference in just a few sessions.
If you decide to undergo neurofeedback, you’ll be joining the likes of business executives and students, parents and veterans, and even Olympic athletes. Everyone looking to achieve peak performance can benefit from neurofeedback.
