What It Is, Who It Treats, How It Works

A Very Brief Overview of Neurofeedback Therapy

While considered an alternative therapy, neurofeedback training has been around since the 1960s and its effectiveness is supported by extensive research. * Neurofeedback training alters brain activity to help children, teens and adults improve attention deficits, anxiety, depression, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), stress-related problems, insomnia and more. 

Many Olympic athletes, elite performers and high achievers have been turning to neurofeedback to give them a cutting edge in competitions and high stakes situations. 

In short, neurofeedback is performance training for the brain. A neurofeedback therapist monitors and measures brain waves and compares what the brain is doing to what you want it to do. During each session, the client is rewarded with a movie, music or video game when the brain is moving toward a desirable state. The reward stops when the brain enters a less desirable state (such as anxiety or inattention). The goal is to “train” the brain to reach a calm, relaxed yet attentive state. Over time, clients learn how to return their minds to this desired state on their own.

More About Neurofeedback Therapy **

Our brains are flexible. Neurofeedback teaches the brain to change itself through positive reinforcement. This therapy helps the brain improve alertness, attention, emotional regulation, cognitive function and mental flexibility. When practiced with a neurofeedback specialist, a measurable physiological effect on the brain is observed, which over time is likely to become the brain’s regular pattern.

Excessive fast or slow brain wave activity is associated with brain dysregulation and a variety of clinical symptoms. Neurofeedback brain training helps improve self-regulation. Changes in brain waves mean changes in brain timing, and this is what creates a more alert, stable and calm brain. Thus, neurofeedback improves behavior, mood and attention.

Brain training may be used alone or with psychotherapy and medications. As the brain becomes more stable and better regulated, therapy often become more effective, and an individual may be able to reduce or eliminate the need for medication.
