What is Neurofeedback and what does it treat?
Neurofeedback is a form of biofeedback that trains the organ of the brain, promoting growth and change at the cellular level. A non-invasive treatment, neurofeedback gives immediate audio and visual feedback according to EEG readings, teaching the brain and body to relax, allowing natural functioning to occur. When the brain is operating optimally, the mind will follow as clients spend less effort and energy overcoming their challenges.
Neurofeedback treats a wide variety of disorders including depression, anxiety, PTSD, personality disorders, addicitons, and unresolved emotional issues. Additionally, it is an effective treatment for early childhood disorders including reducing the symptoms of autism, ADHD, pervasive developmental disorders, reactive attachment disorder, learning disorders, and OCD. It can also relieve syptoms of epilepsy and other seizure disorders, traumatic brain injury, headaches, and cognitive decline. Often, neurofeedback can reduce or eliminate the need for medication for any of these diagnoses.
All our neurofeedback treatment plans begin with a brain map, or QEEG (quantitative
electroencephalogram.) This provides us with a snapshot of the activity in your brain, and allows us to individualize your treatment plan to help your brain work at its best level.
Neurofeedback works directly with the brain to encourage metabolic change and increased performance; the result is improved outcomes and shortened treatment times. An effective addition to therapy, clients who feel stuck or overwhelmed often find they are able to move forward.
