Neurofeedback is a process of training brainwaves back into healthy patterns using modern computer technology. This non-invasive and drug free approach uses brain imaging technology to record brainwave activity and identify unhealthy brainwave patterns. Once irregular patterns have been identified, they can be corrected using guided audio and visual feedback. This amazing new technology has proven itself effective over the past decades in our clinics with Depression, Anxiety, ADHD, Fibromyalgia, Migraines and a host of other disorders.
The heart of this process is our Neuro-mapping system, which allows us to image the brain in real time. This precise information shows us patterns of brain too fast, too slow and connection issues. The data base generates a training protocol to correct the abnormal patterns using neurofeedback. Through repetition of training sessions, the brain learns how to make normal healthy patterns on its own.
It has been well documented that people who suffer neurological problems have abnormal brain waves in certain areas of the brain. For instance, case studies using QEEG “brain maps” have shown that people with Attention-Deficit-Disorder (ADD) have elevated delta brainwaves, while those who suffer from depression have elevated alpha brainwaves. Those with anxiety will have elevated Beta brainwaves, while those suffering from memory loss usually have decreased theta brainwaves.
Training the brain using neurofeedback can change these brainwaves over time, adjusting them into normal, healthy ranges. It can improve alertness, attention, emotional regulation, behavior, cognitive function, and mental flexibility. When the brain moves back into normal ranges, users will often see a reduction in symptoms.
The best part of neurofeedback is that results are often permanent, allowing a person to reduce or even eliminate medications altogether. Where medications only manage the symptoms, the goal of neurofeedback is to address the underlying cause and restore normal brainwave functions.
