What is Neurofeedback?
What if there was a way to retrain your brain, learning to recognize patterns and break potentially damaging cycles for an overall improvement in your quality of life?

Using this innovative therapy, your brain can essentially retrain itself for an overall improvement in function. Watch our video to learn more.
The neurofeedback therapy process begins with an assessment of both current and historical issues with the potential to impact brain function to form a treatment plan. During the procedure, sensors are attached to the scalp with EEG paste to detect and monitor brain waves, with the placement being unique to each individual. The process is completely painless and non-invasive and does not involve the application of voltage to the brain.
A computer analyzes brain waves, gleaning information to be mirrored back through videos or games. During the process, the brain recognizes its own patterns; this pattern recognition allows the brain to operate computer programs with its own waves, regardless of physical or cognitive abilities.
Anyone looking for improved emotional control can potentially benefit from neurofeedback training. It can be particularly beneficial to those seeking to work through past trauma, current addictions or difficulties focusing. The procedure can also be effective at reducing chronic headaches and easing the symptoms of conditions like:
