Neurofeedback therapy is the direct training of brain function by which the mind learns to work more efficiently, allowing for the relief of emotional and brain-based symptoms. Given that the brain controls the entirety of your emotional well-being, psychological health, and every other system in your body, the brain training exercises involved in neurofeedback therapy help to improve its functioning and produce far-reaching benefits.

Neurofeedback training for the brain is in many ways similar to physical training for the body. Many illnesses, disorders, or unwanted behavior patterns are due to dysregulation of brain activity, and with neurofeedback therapy, patients can learn to achieve greater brain functionality by retraining it with natural brain exercises. The brain is designed to adapt to changes in the body and environment, so it makes sense that we should be able to retrain the brain to function optimally, which is the way it was designed.

How Does Neurofeedback Therapy Work?

By using sensors and specialized software, we simply measure the brain activity and reflect it back through a video display. When we allow the brain to see its own activity, it can then adjust itself for better overall performance and function. Nothing is ever being transmitted into the brain. Rather, we are only recording and using the information revealed to us through the electroencephalogram (EEG).

By naturally enhancing self-regulation of brain activity, we improve how our clients function cognitively, emotionally, and behaviorally. This applies whether the client is an adult suffering from symptoms like chronic headaches or they are a child dealing with more severe disorders like autism or epilepsy. Neurofeedback therapy can also be a very useful tool for athletes, entrepreneurs, or anyone else who is looking to maximize their performance and function through this natural brain training technique.
