Therapeutic Benefits

Neurofeedback has the potential to be an effective treatment for a variety of mental health and neurological conditions by helping individuals learn to regulate their brain activity.

Anxiety

Anxiety can be excessive and become an exaggerated worry about everyday life events without obvious reasons for worry. People with symptoms of generalized anxiety disorder always tend to expect disaster and can’t stop worrying. The worry often is unrealistic or out of proportion to the situation. Eventually, the anxiety dominates the person’s thinking that it interferes with daily functioning, including work, school, social activities, and relationships. A lot of the work with anxious people involves teaching them how to help their condition with a conscious influence on their physiology.

Benefits of Neurofeedback:

Neurofeedback is a personal trainer for your brain, specifically for someone who suffers from anxiety. Gently the brain is trained to operate out of a calmer place. The benefit of relieving anxiety conditions does not restrict itself to anxiety per se but will influence the person’s entire life quality. The changes will reflect improved attention and focus, emotional relationships will progress, and people will relate differently with their perceived “self.”

Depression

Depression can affect populations of all age groups. It is a complex disorder that affects people differently and can cause various symptoms. They range from lasting sadness and hopelessness to a loss of interest in the things you used to enjoy and to feel tearful. Many people with depression also have symptoms of anxiety. There can be physical symptoms, too, such as feeling constantly tired, sleeping poorly, having little or no appetite or sex drive, and complaining of various aches and pains. The severity of the symptoms can vary. At its mildest, you may simply feel persistently low in spirit, while at its most severe, depression can make you feel suicidal and that life is no longer worth living.

Benefits of Neurofeedback:

 

Neurofeedback can train the brain to pull itself out of depression and maintain a better state of dynamic equilibrium. The appropriate Neurofeedback technique can pull people out of suicidal thinking, often in a session. Over time, the brain is trained toward stability, and a recurrence is no longer expected. Neurofeedback creates endurance for the brain to resist and maintain the equilibrium the body seeks when a person falls into depression. With successful Neurofeedback training, medications targeting brain function may no longer be needed or may be required at lower dosages as the brain takes over regulating itself.

Stress

When external or internal factors affect the way one feels, it is considered stress. Because of the overabundance of stress in our modern lives, we usually think of stress as a negative experience. Still, from a biological point of view, stress can be a neutral, negative, or positive experience. Stress management should be a fundamental goal for everyone. It is an essential task for health care in general. For mental health, in particular, one must train the central nervous system towards greater tolerance of the stresses it encounters.

ofeedback:


Neurofeedback alleviates the symptoms of stress by replacing feelings of anxiety, worry, fear, and pressure with a sense of euphoria, mental calmness, and tranquility. It helps one focus on how to respond to stress more positively. External factors that affect stress can be diminished by allowing the person to concentrate on what is important. Neurofeedback provides a pathway for brain self-regulation and enforces general relaxation. Neurofeedback helps reduce the adverse effects that stress can cause and turn them into positive mental and physical states of being.

Sleep Disorders

Sleep disorders may include difficulty with sleep onset, frequent waking, bedwetting, restless leg syndrome, nightmares, night terrors, central and obstructive sleep apnea, nocturnal bruxism, snoring, sleep paralysis, sleepwalking and sleep talking, and insomnia, amongst several other sleep disorders that many of us deal with on a day to day basis. The complex organization of our sleep takes us through various states of arousal. And it is in sleep that we witness this process, absent of any conscious control of our arousal states. So any improvement we can achieve with Neurofeedback should show up readily in sleep behavior.

Benefits of Neur
ofeedback:


The impact of Neurofeedback on sleep disorders is evident because it targets fundamental regulatory functions in the brain, such as managing physiological arousal. Neurofeedback applies to any aspect of brain function that we can measure; sleep disorders fall into this category, and through the self-regulation training your brain receives from Neurofeedback, the central nervous system can function better. 

Migraines

A migraine is usually a severe headache felt as a throbbing pain at the front or on one side of the head. A migraine headache is a form of vascular headache. It is caused by the enlargement of blood vessels that causes the release of chemicals from nerve fibers that coil around the large arteries of the brain. These chemicals cause inflammation, pain, and further enlargement of the arteries. The increasing enlargement of the arteries magnifies the pain, usually in a specific head area, depending on each person. Some people also have other symptoms, such as nausea and sensitivity to light and sound.  

Benefits of Neur
ofeedback:


Migraine headaches can be excruciating and vexing. Therefore, diminishing the symptoms has been the focus of migraine treatments. The main focus of the treatment is to reduce the likelihood of migraine symptoms until eliminating migraine headaches, whether chronic or not. Complete elimination of symptoms may or may not occur depending on the person. In most cases, however, symptoms and chronic migraines can be highly diminished after the required Neurofeedback sessions. 

Post Traumatic Stress Disorder

A life-threatening traumatizing event or a sequence of such events can evoke our core emergency response system. One aspect of that response system is strengthening our memory for such events. Our brain records the traumatic event, but what is remembered is our experience of the event, and that experience also includes our response to the crisis. So the body and mind remember a unitary experience that merges the external sensory inputs with the internal reactions. In subsequent recall of the event, this unitary experience re-emerges together with the exalted sensation of panic, fear, etc.

Benefits of Neur
ofeedback:


Neurofeedback can alleviate many symptoms caused by PTSD. The focus of the therapy is to allow the person the possibility of recalling the traumatic event without reliving the experience. Calming the physiology and taming the fear response is the first step. The original memory is being reprogrammed in a process reminiscent of physical therapy. It is a matter of reaching balance and strength for your brain to accomplish self-regulation and help you gain control of your mind and body. The result is that the traumatic memory assumes its rightful place as a biographical, historical memory like all the others. The person can function normally, in this respect, from that time forward. 

Addiction

Addiction is a seriously debilitating mental health disorder. It's a disease that affects thinking and causes a person to engage in self-destructive and painful behavior. It's often accompanied by anxiety, depression, and bipolar or other comorbid mental health disorders. Addiction is a strong, uncontrollable need to take drugs, drink alcohol or carry out a particular activity, such as gambling. You're more at risk of developing an addiction if other family members have addiction problems, if you experienced stress or abuse while growing up, or if you have a mental health problem.

Benefits of Neur
ofeedback:


Brain training is a new approach that can help teach self-control by decreasing stress, increasing reasoning, and overriding irrational thoughts. Combined with addiction treatment, it dramatically increases the success rate of treatment. Because addiction is a brain disorder, not a moral issue or a lack of discipline. Neurofeedback training stimulates the brain to retrain patterns of dysfunction and helps teach you how to calm down. It connects to the reasonable, rational regions of the brain during stressful times. When people gain control of their emotions, they can start choosing to remain clean and sober. We teach the brain to stay calm, relaxed, and focused. Training helps support clear thinking. 

Conduct Disorder

Conduct disorder represents a group of behavioral problems where a child is aggressive, antisocial, and deviant to a much greater degree than expected for the child’s age. To get a diagnosis of conduct disorder, the child must have shown at least three core symptoms over the past year: aggression toward people and animals, destruction of property, deceitfulness, lying or stealing, and severe rules violations.

Benefits of Neur
ofeedback:


Each Neurofeedback session aims to improve and promote self-regulation. Therefore, in behavioral problems in children (e.g., temper tantrums, aggression), Neurofeedback may help children learn to control impulsive behaviors.
