What is Neurofeedback Therapy?
Neurofeedback is an evidence-based therapeutic intervention that has a number of benefits. It uses technology to re-train the brain to function optimally and helps people become more adaptive, resilient, and efficient.
Neurofeedback therapy has been effective in treating a wide range of conditions, including:
Autism Spectrum Disorder
Traumatic Brain Injury
Just as a mechanic can assess the condition of your car, neurofeedback therapy uses technology to assess brainwave activity. This technology provides insights into where the brain isn’t functioning properly, such as in dysregulation caused by trauma. It then uses sounds or visual cues to reorganize or retrain these brain signals to respond optimally. Through this process, clients can learn to regulate and improve the way their minds function and relieve symptoms of various mental health issues.
Neurofeedback therapy treats symptoms by addressing root causes. It looks for what specific brain pathways are out of harmony and then can apply a wide variety of methods and tools to specifically treat an individual’s issues.
Patients report improvements in their memory and focus, less impulsivity, reduced anxiety, and improved mental clarity. They also report better moods and sleep. A significant upside is that all of these benefits come without the side effects of medication.
Benefits of neurofeedback therapy can be expected to persist long after treatment. Because it relies on “re-training” the brain, the brain continues to improve functionality after treatment concludes.
Neurofeedback is a therapeutic intervention used to treat conditions such as ADHD, anxiety, sleep problems, PTSD, stroke, concussion, and other neurological issues.
How Does it Work?
Neurofeedback, also known as EEG biofeedback, is a type of biofeedback. During this therapeutic intervention, non-invasive sensors are attached to your scalp, which then communicates with a computer program. The program then assesses your brainwave activity and uses sound or visual signals to reorganize and retrain the brain signals to function more optimally.
This powerful process allows clients to better regulate and improve their brain function, and in turn, they find relief from various neurological and mental health disorders such as:
- Autism Spectrum Disorder
- Bipolar Disorder
- Chronic Pain
- Memory Issues
- Sleep Problems
- Traumatic Brain Injury
Evaluations can reveal if only a specific area needs to be fine-tuned, such as in the case of a stroke, or if certain neural hubs need to be treated, such as in cases of a concussion or PTSD.
