Neurofeedback Training


Neurofeedback has been such a success for us we developed our neurofeedback training courses and workshops to help spread the word.  The information available is wonderful, if you know where to look.  We found that most of the time it is difficult to understand just what neurofeedback is by doing online research. That's where we come in.  Our goal is to help practitioners and potential clients understand just what neurofeedback is, how it works and how it can help.   
 
Our commitment above all is to educate, enhance, and better the lives of our clients and collaborating providers.

WHAT IS NEUROFEEDBACK?

Neurofeedback (NFB, also known as neurobiofeedback or EEG Biofeedback) is a type of biofeedback that uses sensors placed on the scalp to measure brain waves. NFB uses realtime displays of EEG to exhibit brain activity and teach self-regulation.  A signal is produced that can be used as feedback on brain activity to teach self-regulation. NFB is commonly provided using video and/or sound in order to provide positive and negative feedback for brain activity. 

Neurofeedback helps the brain function more effectively and more efficiently through guided brain function training. Whether we are talking, focusing, reading, problem solving or any other cognitive, behavioral or emotional function our brains are continually changing frequencies throughout our day.

Using software, neurofeedback gives audio and visual feedback that involves increasing or decreasing certain brain wave frequencies. This allows the brain to function with greater stability and control and enhances its function through its regulation of thoughts, feelings, and focus.

HOW DOES NEUROFEEDBACK WORK?

Most neurofeedback systems apply electrodes to specific areas of the scalp and ears using a special conductive paste in order to monitor brainwave activity.  The sensors transmit brainwave signals to the computer software which records and measures the frequencies during the protocol. The sensors are not inputting anything, nor removing anything, from the brain. The client then sees the frequencies on the screen. Most systems do this through video games or morphology feedback.  During neurofeedback, the client either plays the game or manipulates the feedback to shape the brainwave activity to a more regulated and desirable state. As the desired brain wave is achieved, the brain learns to direct itself toward a more desirable performance level. Each individual is set up to target specific frequencies dependent on their wants and needs. Neurofeedback is completely holistic, non-invasive, and painless.

How Can Neurofeedback Help?

How Can Neurofeedback Help?


Neurofeedback addresses problems of brain dis-regulation. Typically, when the brain wave frequencies move into a desired frequency pattern, symptoms may be greatly decreased or completely eliminated.  Often, it is only a matter of getting the brain to function better, rather than curing a condition.  With neurofeedback, your client does not necessarily have to have a clear diagnosis. Instead, neurofeedback focuses more on the specific symptoms of each individual and improving those symptoms.

Medications

After successfully completing their sessions and working with their prescribing doctor, many clients can either decrease their dosage or stop using their medication.  The brain starts to take over the role of regulating itself.  Instead of changing the chemistry of the brain like medications, neurofeedback helps change the brain to its more effective and efficient state.

Success

Neurofeedback is gaining popularity due to its high success rate. We have high expectations when it comes to administering neurofeedback.   Nearly everyone should see gains of some sort in their sessions (provided they are attended with some regularity.)  If this success level is not being met, there is usually a reason. With some tweaking of the sessions most clients will see gains that they, and those around them, notice.
