What is Neurofeedback?
Neurofeedback gives information back to you about the activity of the brain as it is occurring. The electrical activity generated by Central Nervous System processing can be detected by sensors placed on the scalp and displayed on a monitor in real-time.
With specially designed computer software, information about the performance and behaviour of the Brain and the CNS as a whole is then presented back to the individual via visual and auditory perception (feedback).
Who can benefit from Neurofeedback?
The short answer is ANYONE who has a brain!
People using neurofeedback have experienced assistance with a vast array of psychological, emotional and medical conditions along with considerable personal and spiritual growth. It is also widely used by top tier organisations and individuals, who want to improve physical and mental performance, such as athletes, professional trainers, business people, musicians, performers, and students.
As of November of 2012, the American Pediatric Academy has endorsed neurofeedback aka EEG biofeedback as a “Level 1/Best Support” treatment for children with ADHD. Furthermore, the APA has equated neurofeedback with medication in terms of efficacy for resolving ADHD. Our clients have often experienced marked progress in their treatment of ADD/ADHD frequently resulting in the need for little to no medication. Prior to neurofeedback, using medication seemed like the only effective option to make life tolerable for the child and family.
