Neurofeedback to Retrain Your Brain

Be prepared to change your life! That may be a bold statement, but in fact through the use of neurofeedback you may be able to free up your mind from emotions and feelings that have been limiting your ability to fulfill your own potential.

We have often heard the term “It’s mind over matter”. That means that our brain is often what is standing in the way of our achieving our goals. We tend to limit ourselves — through fear of making a mistake, or from past experience. Our brain is an amazing machine that allows us to do phenomenal things. Through the use of neurofeedback we can retrain our brain to change the brainwave patterns that can keep us stuck in behaviors that prevent us from living up to our true potential.

For over 30 years people have been using neurofeedback, a form of biofeedback, to regulate their brain to improve memory function, control emotions and enhance self-awareness. Through the use of specialized monitoring equipment, neurofeedback is a non-medical and non-invasive way to free your mind and body of negative responses and teaches you to self-regulate your brain for improved memory function, and enhanced learning. It also helps to empower you to focus more on improving your physical as well as mental goals.

Sometimes referred to as EEG (Electroencephalogram) Biofeedback or Neurotherapy, the feedback system uses auditory and visual feedback of information when the brain shows too much change within the cortical activity. Any burst of amplitude will interrupt the feedback and allows the brain to take note of a change in mental state. This reinforces the two basic brain states: alert and focused; and relaxed.

The process is painless, and progress is measured by a computer and sensors applied to your head. Some compare it to “potty-training”, where a child learns how to control their organs through the use of reinforcement — such as praise or clapping from the parents. With neurofeedback an adult learns to control their behaviors with signals on a particular frequency level the technician has set. Music will then go off and a picture before the subject will move, giving positive reinforcement or praise.

This process has been very successful over the years in treatment of panic attacks, anxiety, depression, migraine headaches, ADD and ADHD, as well as brain injuries. People with autism or aspergers syndrome have shown marked improvement in attention, communication, socialization and recall as a result of neurofeedback treatments. Athletes have even used neurofeedback in training and before a big event to achieve peak performance.
