Neurofeedback is a non-invasive technology that uses your brainwave activity gathered with EEG sensor electrodes to provide feedback, much like a mirror, to your brain. Using audio and visual feedback, we are able to guide your brain into optimal performance.
Neurofeedback (NFB) is non-invasive technology backed with over 60 years of scientific research proving its effectiveness in retraining brainwaves bringing balance and harmony to all areas of the brain. The client will learn to self regulate their Nervous System and in turn be able to achieve a calm, meditative state despite environmental factors. By optimizing the brainwave patterns we isolate complaints of sleep disorders, anxiety, depressive emotions, anger, self-destructive behaviour and hyperactivity;(?) naturally, and effectively.
Neurofeedback is a type of biofeedback that uses real-time displays of brain activity. Essentially, we are showing your brain a mirror of what it is doing right now using audio and visual feedback. This allows the brain to learn its unique optimal frequencies patterns while also learning to self regulate.
When you give your brain real-time information about its energy levels, you can teach it to calm down or speed up, to shift more smoothly and become more efficient. These changes carry over into your daily life.
A neurofeedback amplifier gathers electrical activity from the sensors (EEG electrodes) placed on your scalp and translates this information into a computer program that creates readable graphs to show your trainer how your brain is performing in each specific brain region.
Brain training software is programmed based on your personal assessment to set targets and provide you with real-time feedback, such as music or video, that start and stop depending on whether or not your brain is hitting its targets. Your brain will learn the subtle feedback and change itself. You don’t have to “think about” it or “try”. Your brain gets the feedback and quickly learns how to organize the frequency patterns to keep this music and video playing.
Trauma, both emotional and physical, can cause reactions and changes in brainwave function. The imbalance that is left from trauma oftentimes leads to diagnoses of many different ailments and disorders. Since the brain acts as the body's powerhouse, it is crucial to keep it in good condition. Balance in the brain translates to overall balance, both physically and mentally. When there is an imbalance, you are not able to reach your potential because you are not performing at the level of which you are capable. By training the parts necessary to help repair that imbalance, you are given the opportunity to live a new, better life with optimal brain function.
Optimizing brainwave patterns through NFB, similar to physical training for your body except rather than developing a 6-pack you train your brain to develop performance, speed, balance, cognitive flexibility and control.
Different types of biofeedback training in different areas of the brain can help you:
