Neurofeedback is a form of biofeedback that takes electrical impulses from the brain and creates a unique therapeutic protocol, based on the data received, to improve brain function.
By placing an electrode cap on the head, we are able to detect subtle electrical impulses given off by the brain. These electrical impulses are then amplified, providing the Neurofeedback monitor with the information needed to generate an individualized training program. Then, it is simply a matter of the brain “training” itself to prefer the desired range of frequencies through a simple reward-based training program. When your brain produces frequencies in the desired range, it will be rewarded, effectively conditioning your brain to prefer desirable frequencies on its own.
Neurofeedback can be used to treat many conditions, including: – ADHD – Depression – Anxiety – Headaches and Migraines – Chronic Pain – Autism – Sleep Disorders – Dementia – TBI / Concussion *Neurofeedback can also help improve physical and cognitive performance.
Yes, Neurofeedback therapy is non-invasive and drug-free. Neurofeedback equipment only receives data from your brain. Any changes made to your brain will come from your brain itself.
Prior to beginning the therapy itself, we will conduct a one-time QEEG Brain Map assessment in order to get an informative look at how your brain is functioning. Following the initial assessment, Neurofeedback training will be conducted at least once per week. The number of Neurofeedback sessions required will vary between individuals, however, 20-30 sessions are ideal. Call our centre now on (305) 889-7488 or enquire online to see how we can help you.
Neurofeedback should play a major therapeutic role in many difficult areas. In my opinion, if any medication had demonstrated such a wide spectrum of efficacy it would be universally accepted and widely used. It is a field to be taken seriously by all.
