How Does Neurofeedback Work?

Many people are familiar with the concept of biofeedback. By making people aware of the performance of their heart or lungs, they can adapt the activity of these important organs of the body. Neurofeedback is essentially biofeedback for the brain. By monitoring the brainwaves and giving real-time feedback, the neurofeedback therapists at the Brain Health Clinic assist their clients to alter the brain’s activity. Just as biofeedback can train a person to steady their heartbeat or to calm their breathing, so too neurofeedback can help a person to alter their brain state from agitation and dysfunction to a state of calm and neurological efficiency.

No Razors, No Pins, and No Needles

During neurofeedback the client is connected to brainwave monitors by tiny sensors that rest on the scalp. No shaving of the hair or pricking with needles is required. The sensors monitor the brain’s activity and provide real-time feedback about the strength and frequency of specific brainwaves. Our clients use this feedback to alter their brainwave activity and train the brain to function well and effectively.

Neurofeedback Creates Lasting Improvements

The changes in brain function created by neurofeedback are long-lasting. Numerous scientific studies show that neurofeedback does a good job of addressing a patient’s neurological or psychological problems and thereafter continues to produce positive results. Whether you are seeking a solution for problems with brain function, or want to improve your mental performance, neurofeedback training has significant advantages with minimal, if any, side effects.
