What is Neurofeedback?

Neurofeedback is direct training of brain function, by which the brain learns to function more efficiently. We observe the brain in action from moment to moment. We show that information back to the person. And we reward the brain for changing its own activity to more appropriate patterns. This is a gradual learning process. It applies to any aspect of brain function that we can measure. Neurofeedback is also called EEG Biofeedback, because it is based on electrical brain activity, the electroencephalogram, or EEG. Neurofeedback is training in self-regulation. It is simply biofeedback applied to the brain directly. Self-regulation is a necessary part of good brain function. Self-regulation training allows the system (the central nervous system) to function better.    Furthermore, it is  a gradual training process to improve brain function and is yielding positive results for many people with mild to severe neurological conditions. People of all ages can experience dramatic improvements in conditions including ADHD, depression, anxiety, memory loss, brain trauma, insomnia, migraines, seizures, chronic pain, addiction, PTSD and even Alzheimer’s.

What is Brain Mapping?
The brain map, otherwise known as an EEG, is a non-invasive diagnostic tool used to evaluate brainwaves in real time and identify opportunities to improve communication between various regions of the brain. The brain map can capture a window of brain activity, analyze the data and create a visual representation of each lobe of the brain and each specific brainwave (Beta, Alpha, Theta and Delta). Detailed results are loaded to a secure database and then compared to similar individuals with healthy brain activity. The report identifies unhealthy brainwave patterns and connectivity issues that your healthcare provider will review with you.

Neurofeedback does not target specific conditions. Instead, it realigns brainwaves, which changes timing and activation patterns in the brain. The result is better brain function, which has been scientifically proven to improve or eliminate symptoms. Below is a list of symptoms that have been shown to improve by using neurofeedback therapy.
