EEG biofeedback (neurofeedback) is a non-invasive brain training technique that allows the brain to receive feedback on its own activity in real time. This helps the nervous system learn how to better self-regulate and can help achieve or restore optimal function and through that impact a variety of symptoms associated with brain dysregulations.
Anxiety & Depression
Many symptoms related to anxiety and depression stem from trauma. Calming the brain down improves self-regulation, and can alleviate agitation, lift the mood and ultimately allow the brain resolve the traumatic memories.
Migraines and related symptoms share the same mechanism that results in an unstable nervous system. Neurofeedback training can restore the balance within the brain, which can lead to fewer, shorter, less intense episodes.
Attention Deficits & Learning Differences
Attention and learning involve different nerve circuits in the brain. Neurofeedback training can improve self-regulation and allow optimal function that can translate into increased focus and attention and decreased hyperactivity and impulsiveness.
Sleep is such an important part of human existence, which is why sleep disruptions have such a broad impact on our overall functioning. Sleep dysregulations can be related to physical, emotional, or mental discomfort. By calming the nervous system down, neurofeedback training allows better organization of sleep states, regulates sleep onset, improves quality and duration of sleep.
Developmental disorders impact the way the brain is wired early on in life. Development interference then results in a variety of clinical presentations and symptoms related to physical, emotional, and mental aspects of brain function. With improved self-regulation due to the calming effects of neurofeedback, the brain can learn to better organize its own activity. That can lead to improved social-emotional awareness, better processing of sensory input, decreased reactivity and repetitive behaviors.
Pain is a needed alarm for our nervous systems, alerting us when we are in danger of injuring ourselves. But in some cases, the pain signals continue long after the injury has healed or even when there was never any injury. Along with other intervention, neurofeedback can help the brain change the perception of pain and become more resilient.
Head injuries can result in unstable neural circuits in different parts of the brain, having a negative impact on overall brain performance as well as specific functions. Neurofeedback training can help improve self-regulation and restore stability, allowing for symptoms related to injury to decrease or resolve.
Increased calm awareness and focused attention allow anyone to achieve their maximum potential, whether they are interested in improving their athletic, academic, or artistic skills. Neurofeedback training allows the brain to reach its potential and is a powerful tool in supporting peak physical, mental, and emotional performance.
When a nervous system experiences traumatic events, especially at an early age, it pushes it into an emergency state that can have a strong and long-lasting negative impact on overall functioning. With repeated exposure to stressful situations, the brain maintains a fight-or-flight mode that is interfering with every aspect of good function, from attention to sleep, to emotional and physical well-being. EEG biofeedback (neurofeedback) can help calm the brain down and help it get back into normal functioning by improving self-regulation.
Additional common concerns that can be helped with EEG biofeedback (neurofeedback) training:
OCD & Tourette's
Substance Abuse & Addiction
Stroke & Epilepsy
Fibromyalgia & Chronic Fatigue
Memory Deficits & Dementia
Bipolar & Schizophrenia
