What is it
Neurofeedback is a brain training system which works on a brain-based level to optimise health and wellbeing via monitoring your brainwave activity via EEG readings. It’s medication free and has minimal side effects.
There are many applications for neurofeedback. You do not need a diagnosis or condition to benefit from Neurofeedback. Neurofeedback can assist with the following problems:
- Stress Prevention and Burnout
- Executive Functioning (concentration, attention and focus)
- Reduce agitation, anger and behavioural difficulties (hyperactive, impulsive)
- Reduce anxiety arousal and emotional regulation issues
- Reduction of PTSD symptoms and re – experiencing
- Improve sleep hygiene
How does it work?
Neurofeedback is based on reading brainwave activity via EEG readings. Different brainwaves are responsible for certain tasks and activities, to assist the brain to adopt better brainwave patterns. This is done by applying sensors to the scalp (either sensors direct or via a headband). We track your changes through a software system reviewing your brainwave patterns and reviewing of symptoms. The results are monitored by your Neurofeedback Technician who can review your results over time to continue to improve your mental health and well-being.
Who can benifit from Neuorfeedback
Neurofeedback can be used on individuals aged 5 to 85. It is safe, medication free and can be done in office or in the convenience of your own home.
We offer in office packages and home leasing arrangements.
It can take 6 to 15 sessions to gain lasting results. But for some people it may take 20 or more sessions as each person is different and the number of sessions can vary by individual.
With brain training, like any muscle, it does require regular sessions to make good gains and maintain those gains and changes. This process is called Neuroplasticity. The brain adapts with the new information and gets to a point where the new changes hold.
