What is Neurofeedback?

Neurofeedback is a non-invasive method of direct brain function training. It is a type of biofeedback, and is also called EEG Biofeedback. The International Society for Neurofeedback and Research (ISNR) defines biofeedback as, a process that enables an individual to learn how to change physiological activity for the purposes of improving health and performance. Precise instruments measure physiological activity such as brainwaves, heart function, breathing, muscle activity, and skin temperature. These instruments rapidly and accurately feed back information to the user.

 

The presentation of this information often in conjunction with changes in thinking, emotions, and behavior supports desired physiological changes. Over time, these changes can endure without continued use of an instrument.

How Does It Work?

The equipment does a full assessment and brain mapping to show in detail where areas of the brain are being affected. As mentioned, Neurofeedback is a non-invasive method of direct brain function training. It uses electrodes, which act like tiny microphones, placed on the client's scalp to record and amplify brainwaves and control auditory, visual and/or tactile feedback which allows learning to take place. This operant learning initiates self-regulation and enhances relaxation, both necessary components of good brain function.

There are so many facets to what Neurofeedback is, and the impacts it can have on us are literally endless. Our Neurofeedback Systems (aka EEG biofeedback or brainwave training) are sold only to or on the order of a licensed practitioner.

 

We will be happy to speak with your licensed practitioner regarding which options are best for you.
