How does Neurofeedback work?
Tiny pulses of electrical activity produced as the neurons in your brain communicate with each other in essence control your entire being. These brainwaves, as they are called, affect our behaviors, thoughts, and emotions, which in turn impact the quality of our lives. When the brainwave activity is firing at optimal levels the body will function in a healthy balanced way. When the patterns within the brain that are not working correctly, a dysregulation occurs, and there will be corresponding problems that manifest as symptoms. A wide variety of disorders can be traced back to these dysfunctional brainwave patterns. By influencing these electrical patterns, we can change the brain's communication for the better, helping you to achieve better health.
Will it hurt? Are there side effects?
No! Neurofeedback therapy is absolutely non-invasive, and completely painless. Rather than trying to affect the body from the outside, it helps the brain to deal with any problems at the foundation. The specialized Neurofeedback computer system challenges the brain to do all the work without you even noticing. There have been no negative side effects reported since its introduction 40 years ago. Also, there are no contraindications to the therapy allowing any patient who the treatment is appropriate for to benefit.
