Neurofeedback Brain Training
Neurofeedback is a sophisticated form of BIOFEEDBACK that optimises your brain and nervous system with the direction in improving your COGNITION, PERFORMANCE and EMOTIONAL STABILITY. With neurofeedback training, individuals express feeling calmer, happier, less anxious, more focused, improvements in their capacity to regulate their emotions. A quieter nervous system leads to a more relaxed individual who is less reactive, more content and more able to engage in relationships without conflict.
Developed by psychologists and neuroscientists, NeurOptimal® neurofeedback is not a medical treatment, but rather a superior form of brain-training that is safe for children and adults, enabling us to train the brain in a safest and extensive way.
During the session, five sensors are attached to your scalp and ears. The computer reads your brain's electrical activity and feeds this information back to your brain in the form of audible interruptions in the music (the feedback). This is how the brain learns — the central nervous system is hard-wired to take in information and use it to organise itself. With neurofeedback, the brain receives information about itself thousands of times more quickly than the brain can receive without neurofeedback when we learn about ourselves just by our interaction with the environment.
The speed of the feedback received during neurofeedback helps the brain re-organise more efficiently. Training with neurofeedback STRENGTHENS THE BRAIN'S PROCESSING.
Neurofeedback actually TEACHES the brain to work more effectively - and, like learning to ride a bike, this learning is permanent.
What to Expect?
An initial statement questionnaire is done as to how you are feeling and rating it accordingly.
Two sensors are placed on the head and a few on the ears and earbuds to listen to the music
The client chooses to: relax and close their eyes or view a monitor screen while the music is playing. With Children, interactive tools are used while they listen to music.
The micro-second by micro-second music played is allowing your brain the information it needs to balance itself.
Neurofeedback, also known as EEG (Electroencephalogram) biofeedback, is a therapeutic intervention that provides immediate feedback from a computer based program that assesses a client's brainwave activity. The program then uses sound or visual signals to reorganize or retrain the brain signals.
