Neurofeedback, also known as EEG biofeedback, is a safe therapeutic intervention that provides immediate feedback that uses sound or visual signals to reorganize or retrain brain waves to regulate and improve function and to alleviate symptoms of various neurological and mental health disorders.

What is Neurofeedback?

Neurofeedback, also known as EEG (electroencephalogram) biofeedback, is a safe therapeutic intervention that provides immediate feedback from a computer-based program that assesses a client’s brainwave activity. The program then uses sound or visual signals to reorganize or retrain brain waves. By responding to this process, the client’s brain learns how to regulate and improve its function and to alleviate symptoms of various neurological and mental health disorders.

When is Neurofeedback Used?

Children, adolescents, and adults with any issue related to brain function such as chronic anxiety, depression, stress-related problems, seizure conditions, behavior disorders, attention deficits, acquired brain injuries, birth trauma, post-traumatic stress disorder, and insomnia or interrupted sleep patterns, as well as those with age-related cognitive loss, may find neurofeedback helpful. Neurofeedback is often also used as a complementary intervention with other forms of therapy.

What To Expect

Neurofeedback therapy typically consists of once-a-week sessions for an average of 20 weeks. Some people need fewer sessions, while others require more. Your therapist may have you sit in a chair, or lie down on a comfortable recliner or sofa in their office. The therapist attaches 5 gentle sensors using conductive paste to your scalp and your outer ears. A computer EEG program will read, interpret, and process your brain signals and frequencies.

A typical session takes approximately 33 minutes. You can be sitting comfortably with your therapist in the midst of a session or doing homework on your own computer or other device, as this does not interfere with the treatment. Your brain is doing all the work based on feedback from the computerized neurofeedback program. Between sessions, you will gradually, over time, begin to notice changes in stress, sleep patterns, or mental clarity.

How It Works

How It Works Neurofeedback is not considered a cure, but rather a method of managing or regulating the workings of the brain so it functions in a healthier manner. The brain responds to repetitive signals, and through the repetitive training sessions using a computerized neurofeedback program, your central nervous system will learn to reorganize and regulate brainwave frequencies. Neurofeedback assesses your brain waves and provides information about your typical brain activity that may be causing symptoms so that they can be treated directly.
