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…

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.


Can Neurofeedback Help Anxiety?

Anxiety is your body’s response to stress, whether psychological, physical, dietary, or environmental. Your brain locks into a pattern of anxiety which, unfortunately, can be challenging to break.


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.
