Neurofeedback

Neurofeedback is a painless, noninvasive approach that allows the individual to gain information about his or her brainwave activity and use that information to produce changes in brain activity. Think of Neurofeedback as a personal training session that challenges the brain to better function. Training the brain to function at its optimal potential is similar to the way the body is exercised, toned, and maintained. When you give the brain information about itself, it has an enormous capacity for change.

Neurotherapists use cutting edge technology to help calm and stabilize the brain. Neurofeedback reads a client’s brainwaves, or EEG, and uses that information to create “feedback” as part of a video game or movie to show the brain what it is doing. Brainwave activity adjusts speed, activity, volume, and visibility of the screen. When the brain sees that it is controlling what is happening on the screen, usually after a few minutes, it will use that “feedback” to adjust its own activity to be more calm, more stable, and better regulated.

How does it work?

A comprehensive qEEG brain map allows us to read the frequency of areas across the brain. Brian mapping will show which areas of the brain may be over or under signaling and may be contributing to symptoms within the body.

You are unique! Based on your unique brain map results, we share what we find and discuss if we can help. If we are a good fit, we advise specific neurofeedback protocols that can help to improve your health.

Optimize

Optimize

As brainwave frequencies improve, your brain becomes more flexible, resilient, and optimized. The goal is better function, health, and wellbeing, as your brain shifts into a corresponding state of mind and improve performance,.

ADD/HD

Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is described as inability to focus, and often paired with anger outbursts, restlessness, and social impairment.

Neurofeedback assessments identify unhealthy, abnormal brainwave patterns and brain training helps the brain develop normal, healthy, organized patterns. The brain becomes more stable and clients notice a reduction in hyperactivity. In general, overall concentration is improved and the brain operates more efficiently.

Anxiety

Anxiety disorders are highly treatable, yet less than a third of people who suffer seek help. Everyone experiences stress and anxiety, however, some brains either get stuck in negative processing patterns or become over active in processing. With Beta brainwave dysregulation, the brain tends to operate at a faster than normal processing speed and considered to be over-aroused.

With daily stressors and operating in such a fast-paced world, it is easy to become overwhelmed and frustrated. Neurofeedback therapy can be paired with talk therapy to focus on the direct training of brain function so that your brain can function normally and efficiently. Particularly, neurofeedback focuses on the electrical activity of your brain. Therapy sessions normally include training to increase healthy brainwaves while inhibiting other, stress-related waves. This increases the opportunity to solve anxiety at the root cause(s). You are empowered to react to anxiety symptomatology in healthier ways. 

Autism

Symptoms of autism spectrum disorder (ASD) normally emerge around the age of two or three. These symptoms include: inappropriate social interaction, poor eye contact, compulsive behavior, impulsivity, repetitive movements, self-harm, or persistent repetition of words or actions, learning disability or speech delay in a child. Other common symptoms are anxiety, irregular mood patterns, intense interest, or problems paying attention. Often time’s, individuals on the Autism Spectrum are also unaware of others’ emotions. 

Clinical results of neurofeedback has shown improvement of autism symptoms. Some of those results include:

-Greater ability to handle touch and contact

-Reduction of emotional outbursts

-Clearer speech patterns

-Decreased hyperactivity

-Increased social skills

-Increased focus and attention patterns

-Increased executive skills & better cognitive functioning

Depression

Depression affects more than 280 million people worldwide. Symptoms include (but may not be limited to) feelings of overwhelm, fatigue, sadness, foggy brained, or disconnection, Research shows that depression may be impacted by a reduction of brainwave activity on the left side of the brain, where positive mood is engaged.

Neurofeedback helps train the brain to increase alpha brain waves on the left side. As the left side of the brain becomes more active, clients generally feel more positive in their moods. Overall, when brainwave functioning improves, mood improves as well.  

Insomnia

As an essential, sleep allows the body and mind to recharge. Poor sleep patterns are associated with irritability, tiredness, and difficulty with focus and/or concentration. Too, lack of sleep are believed to be related to physical health problems including obesity, hypertension, diabetes, and cardiovascular disease. Chronic, or recurrent, insomnia is a widespread condition affecting nearly 10-15% of the global population.

In clinical studies, neurofeedback is shown as an effective, drugless, natural approach to insomnia, especially for people who have struggled for years. If you are ready to be able to fall asleep and stay asleep, for improved energy, health and wellbeing, then it’s time to relax and reward your brain for improved function with neurofeedback.

Memory

Brain fog, forgetfulness, declining cognitive function, mixing up your words, asking the same questions repeatedly or taking longer to perform normal tasks, are all signs and symptoms of memory loss. These are early warning signs of abnormal brainwave function that are often associated with the inability to process information optimally.

Neuroplasticity is your brain’s ability to create new neural pathways. Your brain is not hard-wired, it is not limited or fixed in it’s abilities to heal. When the imbalance is removed and brainwaves are regulated, cognitive function improves. The result is an improved ability to remember. 

Migraines

Many factors can trigger migraines – ranging from hormonal imbalance, light sensitivity, allergies and dehydration to neuro-metabolic issues. This leaves your brain in a high state of stress and imbalance. The results are a variety of symptoms that take their toll on your life including inability to focus, mood swings, and throbbing pain.

Neurofeedback is a scientifically proven system that retrains the brain to create new patterns and responses to incoming triggers and stressors. This new response improves brainwave activity and function. The result is a calmer, happier, healthier brain that has fewer symptoms and flare ups. Studies have shown more than a 54% rate of total cessation of pain and symptoms, and 99% reported a decrease in pain and symptoms. When balance and function is restored, your outcomes are optimized and health improved. 

PTSD

PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder) often occurs after a stressful or traumatic event leaving a wake of symptoms in its path. From anxiety and depression to fear, guilt and shame, the emotional toll impacts daily lives, careers and relationships. As a result, most people who suffer from PTSD are looking for an effective way to treat their symptoms so they can get back to living a normal life. With PTSD, a severe stress response is triggered, the challenge is to teach the brain to turn off the stress response.

The specific areas of the brain affected by PTSD can also be targeted and retrained to produce healthier patterns. This retraining creates a relaxation in the brain and teaches it new ways to handle stress. As brainwaves are rebalanced and improved, function improves, leading to better mood, sleep, cognitive function and adaptability in daily life. Over time with neurofeedback, as the areas of the brain improve, it has been possible to significantly reduce medications as a person with PTSD begins to maintain a calm state on his or her own.

Peak Performance

Whether you are a professional athlete, a top executive, a weekend warrior, a student athlete, professional or performer, you know that peak performance is essential to your success. But how do you achieve peak performance? The more that is at stake, the greater the need for not only physical training, but brain training for increased brain health.

Neurofeedback Improves

-Depth and quality of sleep for greater physical and mental stamina

-Mental focus and clarity

-Concentration

-Adaptability and mental cognition

-Rate of mental processing

-Memory

Substance use Disorders

A Substance Use Disorder ranges in severity from mild to severe. People who struggle with substance use disorders often begin or continue using because they have underlying, or co-occurring symptoms related to anxiety, depression, trauma-related symptoms or PTSD.

Studies have shown that abstinence rates can be improved using neurofeedback, making neurofeedback a modality that both compliments and enhances the efficacy of recovery programs for substance use disorders.

Neurofeedback can help with...

Neurofeedback shifts the way brainwaves produce and distribute its electrical energy along four electrical bands – Alpha, Beta, Theta, and Delta. Depending on your symptoms, brainwaves are balanced (optimized) so you function better.
