Neurofeedback is brain training, by which the brain learns to function more efficiently; an evidence-based technology, approved by the FDA for Stress Management. In the same way a heart rate monitor or ECG displays heart functioning, a neurofeedback device displays EEG and brain wave activity.
Once your neurofeedback practitioner receives this direct feedback of your brain activity, a bespoke training protocol is designed for you. Neurofeedback exercises the brain by improving self-regulation and flexibility, through very simple principles of conditioning (via sounds and visuals).
As we are not consciously aware of our brain wave activity, we are not always able to identify dysregulation and its effects on mental performance, emotional control and physiological stability. Through Neurofeedback an individual is able to “listen in” to their own brain wave activity. With activity and frequencies converted into easily identifiable audio and visual stimuli, the brain learns to adjust this activity and function more effectively
