Different Types of Neurofeedback

Neurofeedback is a non-invasive therapy that trains your brain to self-regulate and normalize it by giving positive feedback for desire behavior. When considering Neurofeedback is recommended to know how this treatment works and why the type you are getting is the best suited for your needs.   With almost 50 years of clinical use, Neurofeedback has…

What Are Brainwaves?

Every thought, behavior, or emotion that we have occurs due to the communication between neurons in the form of brainwaves. Brainwaves are created when synchronized electrical pulses are generated from large masses of neurons communicating together. Through Neurotherapy, these brainwaves can be detected using sensors that are applied directly to the scalp. But what exactly can these brainwaves…

Neurofeedback Side Effects

Most experts within the neurofeedback field compare the process to physical exercises but designed to strengthen the brain. Unfortunately, just like working out a muscle at the gym, mental fatigue is common after a neurofeedback session is concluded. But what other side effects have been reported when undergoing this type of brain training, and are…

What is Biofeedback?

Biofeedback, a mind-body therapy, teaches people to change the way their bodies function for the purpose of improving physical, mental, and emotional health. This is done through the use of instruments that measure and display mental or physical processes, allowing patients to control internal functions that are normally outside of their conscious control. In the same way the use of a stopwatch can help you…

In fact, many say they feel relaxed and calm during the sessions and experience a new sense of energy after them. However, as with all forms of therapy, it is important to be aware of what to expect from…

What is Neurofeedback?

As an innovative, non-invasive treatment method for various conditions, neurofeedback provides direct training to brain function to allow it to be more efficient in specific scenarios or situations. During neurofeedback sessions, brain activity is observed. Information is relayed back to the patient; however, changing activity to more appropriate patterns is rewarded to ensure a gradual learning process that produces a favorable behavior naturally with time.


Neurofeedback 101: What Do You Need to Know?

Neural pathways, made up of neurons connected by dendrites, are developed in the brain and are determined by our behavior. The more frequent a behavior, the greater number of dendrites created.
