Neurofeedback, or EEG biofeedback, is a non-drug treatment which belongs to a group of therapies called biofeedback. Neurofeedback has been used in clinics for decades to successfully treat various conditions, including ADD/ADHD, PTSD, anxiety, traumatic brain injuries, and others.
Neurofeedback is a safe, evidence-based treatment which can control symptoms with little or no side effects. Many research studies have shown it to be as effective as stimulant medications in treating ADD/ADHD. Clients can learn to change their brainwave patterns by playing games and watching videos as part of a training program, usually lasting 30-40 sessions.
What is Biofeedback?
Biofeedback allows us to observe and regulate physiological functions such as respiration, heart rate, coherence, blood pressure etc. It is powerful to be able to see and change this in real time. Did you know that current research is demonstrating that the heart sends more messages to the brain than the brain sends to the heart? Teaching people how to increase coherence between their emotional felt state, their breath, and their heart rate can be a powerful tool for stress management and wellness.
