What Is Neurofeedback?

Neurofeedback is a type of biofeedback that acts as a reward system for the brain to restore brainwave patterns to a more optimal range of functioning. It is a non-invasive treatment that works toward improving the source of unwanted health symptoms. These symptoms can include but are not limited to; addiction, tourettes, ADHD, ADD, stress disorders, anxiety, panic attacks, autism, Aspergers, depression, headaches, concussions and sleeping issues. It also may be used to aid memory concerns, help individuals struggling with epilepsy, PTSD, obsessive/compulsive behaviors and aggression.

Neurofeedback works toward finding the source of the aforementioned issues and is different from medication because it looks for the root cause rather than just treating the symptoms. Similar to the holistic approach at Valley Natural Health, neurofeedback seeks to treat the entire person, not just suppress symptoms without identifying the core issue.

How Is a Neurofeedback Treatment Done?

An EGG (sensors placed on head) monitors brainwaves and will correct those brainwaves to behave more optimally. Incorrect brainwave functionality can result in a pausing of function and similar to an electrical current, a gap in the wire can cause misfiring. Neurofeedback is meant to create a lasting synapse redirection to allow the brain to find better, more efficient pathways to cognitive processing, allowing the brain to consistently operate within the proper range after treatment.

Benefits of Neurofeedback, in addition to the treatment of the above mentioned conditions, include:

  • Feeling calmer
  • Increased mental clarity
  • Dropping away of fears
  • More appropriate response to situations
  • Feeling lighter and greater ease (improved mood)
  • Increased motivation and ability to accomplish tasks
  • Learning capacity and executive functioning mental acuity
  • Sleep management
  • Helps you de-stress and manage stress better
  • Improves executive functioning, mood and let go of worries
  • Can help with anti-aging and brain fitness
