Neurofeedback (also called Brain Training or qEEG) is a breakthrough, non-invasive technology that can improve or elimiate conditions like:
- Brain Injury
- Chronic Fatigue
- Lyme Disease
- Memory Loss
- Substance Abuse
- And more!
Neurofeedback can yield positive results for many people with debilitating neurological conditions.
- No drugs or radiation
- Only 30 minutes
How does Neurofeedback help me?
Neurofeedback does not target any specific conditions. Instead it realigns brainwaves, which changes timing and activation patterns in the brain. The result is better brain function, which can improve or eliminate symptoms. This amazing technology works by re-aligning brainwaves while you are engaged in a movie or music.
Decades of Research
Neurofeedback has over 50 years of positive case studies and scientific publications and is currently used by thousands od licensed health professionals around the world. It could be the most important new tool for mental and neurological health available today.
How do we determine your condition?
The heart of this process is our brain mapping system, which allows us to image the brain in real time. The brain map is an important tool we use to evaluate your brainwaves and identify opportunities to improve communication between various regions of the brain. The brain map is able to capture a window of brain activity, analyze the data, and create a visual representation for each lobe of the brain and each specific brainwave (Beta, Alpha, Theta, and Delta. Each lobe is responsible for different functions and emotions.
How Does Neurofeedback Work?
Neurofeedback utilizes a non-invasive technique for monitoring brain activity. Small electrodes are attached to specific areas of the head using paste. Our Neurointegration software records the brain waves and displays the data in real time. During this time the patient is watching a movie or listening to music. The software compares the incoming brainwaves to that of an optimal brainwave in the target range. If the brainwaves deviate from normal ranges, it triggers the audio or video to fade. The brain automatically detects this and refocuses itself back into the proper range. This process is repeated hundreds of times per session. Sessions usually last 30 minutes.
The Brain Is A Learning Machine
Through operant conditioning, the brain is rewarded when the audio or video returns to normal. Eventually the brain learns to stay in the healthy ranges without the reward stimulus, and is able to sustain normal activity independent of the computer. This is achieved by reconnecting functional pathways in the brain.
Neurofeedback does not target any particular disorder. Its purpose is to change timing and activation patterns in the brain. This improves brain regulation, which can impact a variety of symptoms. Different symptoms will require triggering different areas of the brain. The software is designed to target specific areas of the brain according to a patient’s symptoms.
How Many Sessions Are Needed?
There is no magic number. Just as every person is unique, the number of sessions will vary according to each person. Noticeable results typically occur between the first and tenth session. In general 20 – 40 sessions are needed for the results to become permanent. Symptoms in some patients will resolve in a shorter time. Some require more training, some less. The goal is to complete enough sessions to ensure consistent and lasting benefits.
