What Is Neurofeedback?
Looking for a non-invasive alternative to encourage your brain to return to a more efficient and effective operation?
Neurofeedback can help.
What is Neurofeedback?
Neurofeedback, or biofeedback which it is also referred to, is a type of therapy that is completely safe and non-invasive which helps alleviate a number of symptoms. Some of which are, but not limited to:
A lack of ability to focus, sleeping troubles, anxiety, and memory loss. With the ability to help alleviate those symptoms neurofeedback therapy is found to be extremely beneficial for people with ADD/ADHD, Anxiety, Depression, Insomnia, and even addiction. This therapy is used to stimulate and bring balance to patients’ brain waves; which entails monitoring your brain activity.
When an imbalance is detected, we’re able to find where the issue is, and how to fix it. Neurofeedback is considered to be non-invasive because there is no ‘current’ going to your brain, and nothing in your brain or body’s chemical makeup is changed. At this time researchers have found no side effects of the therapy, with an 85% success rate, and this therapy can easily be added to anyone’s counseling routine.
What can neurofeedback do for me?
Neurofeedback is targeted for people with more mental illnesses than physical, not that it can’t be beneficial for both. People with anxiety would greatly benefit from this therapy. We can detect where the tension is coming from in your brain, and therapists can target it and relieve it. Patients with insomnia should also look into this therapy, for it is known to alleviate sleeping issues, from having patience reach such a state of relaxation. Doctors have said they’ve seen insomniacs get a full night’s sleep, people who suffer seizures never experience another. Another considerable benefit neurofeedback is notorious for is helping people with addiction.
When a patient undergoes this treatment for addiction, their brain is either in a state of over-arousal or under-arousal based on the drug the patient uses. During therapy, the software rewards to the brain when it responds in a calm, rational manner; making it associate calmness. By doing this, with time it will help the patient reduce impulsive and reactive behavior when put under stress, which is the number one reason addicts relapse. Overall, neurofeedback helps increase focus, stimulate your ambition, get deeper sleep, regulate erratic behavior, reduce seizures, and curve impulsivity.
