Neurofeedback Training (NFB) is an innovative, non-invasive, and safe method that improves brain function and enhances brain health. The main value of Neurofeedback is that it targets the underlying dysregulation in the brain. Good self-regulation is necessary for optimal brain function.
In a typical neurofeedback training session, the client is seated in a comfortable chair in front of a video screen watching a movie. During the training process the clinician observes the brainwaves in action as a real-time movie, and then rewards the brain for changing its own activity to more appropriate patterns. Neurofeedback gently encourages the brain to self-regulate and produce healthier brainwave patterns. This ultimately improves thinking, behavior patterns, and the emotional state.
Decades of practice have demonstrated the effectiveness of Neurofeedback in improving the quality of life through symptom reduction in individuals with a wide range of issues:
- Attention- deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)
- Learning disabilities
- Autism spectrum disorder
Neurofeedback could be an option for people who are looking for a natural alternative to medication, or do not respond well to traditional methods of treatment. Experienced clinicians have reported that Neurofeedback has success rates of 60% to 80%, with virtually no side effects.
