What is Neurofeedback?

Neurofeedback is a fun, interactive, non-invasive, medication-free treatment that helps you strengthen and retrain your brain to achieve a healthier, more focused state. In order to help balance and optimize the brain, neurofeedback—which is a type of biofeedback—uses advanced computer technology to assess brain wave activity in real-time.
Brain waves are the rhythmic electrical impulses generated when the millions and millions of neurons inside your head communicate with each other. Brain waves can reveal important information about your overall brain function, including stress levels, thought patterns, and emotions.

What Are The Benefits of Neurofeedback?

Neurofeedback provides numerous benefits. For people with behavioral issues, it can play an important role in building up a person’s confidence and belief that they can change.

In terms of emotional stress and anxiety, it helps retrain the brain to respond more positively to stimuli that produce distressing emotions. And it can support high achievers to reach peak performance by optimizing brain function.

In particular, patients have reported enhanced memory and focus, decreased impulsivity and anxiety, better mental clarity, more restful sleep, improved mood, and a host of other benefits after using neurofeedback.


Who Can Benefit From Neurofeedback?

Children and adults of all ages may find neurofeedback helpful, whether it is used as solo therapy or as part of a comprehensive treatment plan. Neurofeedback can help boost focus and overall brain health not only in psychiatric patients but also in anyone who wants a natural way to optimize their brain. Neurofeedback helps you gain control of your brain waves through self-regulation, so you can achieve the desired brain state—whether the goal is to maintain concentration or to achieve a more relaxed state. The ability to achieve and maintain a certain state is key to optimizing your behavior and emotional health. It is also used as a method to enhance athletic or musical performance and to promote peak performance in the workplace.
