Neurofeedback can help you to re-train your brain to function more optimally, and can help to address physical, emotional and cognitive symptoms. Neurofeedback is a form of biofeedback. Biofeedback uses instruments to monitor body systems we don’t normally think about, like our breathing, heart rate, skin temperature, etc. When we monitor these things, it gives us feedback – or information – about our physiology, and we can subsequently learn to voluntarily control these aspects of our body to reduce stress and dysfunction. Over time, the body can learn to hold onto the changes, for long-term benefit.
Neurofeedback is biofeedback for the brain, and works to balance the brain and nervous system. It can reduce stress, increase focus and more! Some people also use it for peak-performance, as well. It is non-invasive, and is well supported by the Mayo Clinic, the American Academy of Pediatrics, and more. Neurofeedback is a process, and usually involves 20 sessions or so, depending on the complexity of symptoms, and how quickly a client responds. Changes tend to be long-term, and only positive changes are reinforced during the sessions, making it a safe process.
