Neurofeedback is a sophisticated form of BIOFEEDBACK that optimizes your brain and nervous system with the direction in improving your COGNITION, PERFORMANCE , EMOTIONAL and PHYSICAL 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, 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, sensors are attached to your scalp and ears. The computer reads your brain's electrical activity and feeds this information back to your brain, the brain knows how to self regulate. This is how the brain learns — the central nervous system is hard-wired to take in information and use it to organize 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-organize 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?
Initial questionnaires are done to better understand your goals, rate your sensitivity and reactivity levels before engaging, then two sensors are placed on the head and on the ears while the computer records the brainwaves or the you listen to the music. The client simply relaxes with their eyes closed while the clinician observes or leaves the room.
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. After a stimulus of low frequency radio waves or music, the brain self regulates itself. Its aim is to modulate the neural electrical activity of the brain to interrupt the dysfunctional patterns. The patient achieves a significant improvement in their ability to self-regulate. The brain wavs gathered in "real-time" (any brain area the is hypo/hyper or unsuppressed brain area) helps the brain and the central nervous system to reset. It is non invasive and can assist the therapist or individual.
NEUROPLASTICITY -The ability if the brain to reorganize itself, both in structure and how it functions. Scientists used to believe the brain was hardwired. We used to think after childhood, you could not repair, regenerate or replace damaged brain cells. Today, we know there is a possibility of the brain to change its structure; neurogenesis, create new synapses, strengthened synapses via tools and techniques.
