What is Neurofeedback?

Neurofeedback is a type of Biofeedback, which trains your brain to operate more efficiently and helps your brain regulate itself. Through EEG technology, we provide your brain with the information it needs in real time for it to change its own activity and move toward more healthy patterns. In effect, your brain is learning a new skill and is encouraged to keep this skill. Think of it as “muscle memory” for your brain.

Neurofeedback can be called EEG (electroencephalogram) Biofeedback due to its focus on the electrical brain activity. Devices are used to reward or inhibit target brainwaves in the areas typically responsible for the problem symptoms. Neurofeedback’s primary focus if to get the brain better at self-regulation.

  • In-Office Neurofeedback

    In-Office Neurofeedback targets very slow brainwaves which only take place in our unconscious processes. This requires a highly skilled technician or clinician for precise electrode placement and protocol development. Unlike home Neurofeedback, in-office Neurofeedback doesn't require the client to consciously focus on the training or on learning a new skill. It all takes place "behind the scenes."

  • Home Neurofeedback

    Home Neurofeedback allows a client to experience the benefits of Neurofeedback in the comfort of their own home. This is done by using a wearable device and a mobile app while the clinician monitors their brain activity and progress remotely. By downloading the Myndlift app and using a Muse headset, the client will be able to train remotely with close clinical supervision.

Neurofeedback is helpful with:​

  • Difficulty with concentration

  • Impulsivity/behavior

  • Mood

  • Sleep issues

  • Headaches/migraines

  • Emotional issues

  • Peak performance training

 

Who can Neurofeedback help?

Neurofeedback is helpful with people of all ages. Children who’s neuro-networks are developing may have issues with age appropriate activation due to trauma or birth defects. Neurofeedback can aid in getting their brains to function more within normal parameters. Some of these conditions may include behavioral issues, attention deficits, teeth grinding, nightmares, etc. 

 

As the brain developing into the teen years, other issues may pop up that make adolescents difficult to manage. Many parents are left wondering why their teens begin to experience issues like difficulties with transitions, self harm, mood swings, and more.

 

As people get older, people begin to desire to live life differently. They begin searching for some freedom from the behaviors, feelings, and/or thoughts that have plagued them for years. Any brain, regardless of age and function can get better at what it’s doing. This especially rings true for people who are looking for the edge over competition in the work place or in their area of sports.

 

Can Neurofeedback effect behavior?

While medication and traditional talk therapy remain dominant in our society, Neurofeedback can help people in a different way. Neurofeedback builds up the brain to gain more control and focus. This method is about lasting positive change through allowing the brain to self-regulate.

 

Stress and Anxiety

Stress and anxiety often lead people to feel like their minds are out of control, overwhelmed, worried, and exhausted. Neurofeedback can help your brain learn new ways to respond to things that pop up and be more in control of how your brain responds to the stressors of life.

 

Peak Performance

Poise, concentration, emotional control, focus, and the “zone” are key to excelling in any field. Business, creativity, office interactions, sports and networking all rely on you being able to operate at your peak in order to excel. People looking to take their skills to the next level are turning to Neurofeedack in order to create brain efficiency and peak performance.
