Our brain’s nerve cells emit electrical signals that arrange themselves in what is known as brainwave patterns. These patterns affect everything we do and everything we are: Our emotions, thoughts, chemical balance, and so forth. Neurofeedback, also known as EEG Biofeedback, is a technique to change your state of mind by addressing problems of “brain disregulation”.
An Electroencephalogram (EEG) can show us when our brain is not functioning well. By finding out about our brain wave functioning and characteristics, we can learn to change them. Neurofeedback is a learning technique to direct our brain function and enable us to alter our brain activity to more appropriate patterns. Much like with physical exercise, it requires us to challenge our brain in order to train it to function better.
What conditions can it help?
Neurofeedback addresses some of the more intractable brain disregulation issues (both physical and behavioral). These include but are not limited to: ADD, ADHD, OCD, PTSD, Depression, eating disorders, Conduct Disorder, Bipolar Disorder, Anxiety, emotional disturbances, drug or alcohol addiction, PMS, Autism, sleep disorders, migraines, headaches, Cerebral Palsy, birth trauma, and seizures.
Advantages of Neurofeedback
Neurofeedback is a natural method to help you improve your emotional and physical health. It uses no drugs and, instead, helps you learn to maintain routines that build up your brain function. As you keep practicing, it will get easier, kind of like exercising a muscle. Almost any brain can be trained to function better; as it begins to function better, you can reduce or sometimes even eliminate the need for medication all together.
How often does Neurofeedback take place?
Initially, Neurofeedback sessions usually take place 2-3 times per week. As symptoms lessen, the sessions are cut back. About 20-40 Neurofeedback sessions are required for most conditions because it will take you time and dedication to train your brain to restructure itself.
