Neurofeedback, also known as EEG-Biofeedback, is a protocol where electrodes are placed on the scalp to detect electrical activity from your brain. A non-invasive procedure, it retrains the organ by bolstering specific areas of the brain where people experience problems. Clients can expect to view morphing fractal images that are generated from your brain for 24-34 minutes.
One example of what retraining includes is the habit of coming home from school or work every day and eating cookies. A habit is considered a neuropathway, a road within your brain that expands upon further use. When not used, the road becomes smaller. Neurofeedback reduces the amount of unhealthy neuropathways in your brain and creates new ones, helping to encourage healthier habits.
One of the great benefits of neurofeedback is that it can help people reduce medications. It is a powerful, non-invasive, neurological training.
Disorders That EEG-Biofeedback Helps
This form of alternative therapy benefits a variety of common conditions. While research is ongoing to determine whether it helps those suffering from memory related disorders such as the dementias, neurofeedback research findings indicate benefits to many different disorders, including:
- Autism Spectrum Disorders
- Peak Athletic Performance
- Capitalizing on strengths
- Traumatic Brain Injury
