What is Neurofeedback?

Neurofeedback is a technique designed to teach people how to control their brain waves. Many individuals with attention problems are producing more slow brain waves (theta) and fewer fast brain waves (beta). Since slower brain waves indicate mental drifting and faster brain waves are associated with concentration, individuals are trained through neurofeedback sessions to increase their fast brain waves while reducing the amount of slow brain waves.

Neurofeedback: A treatment for ADHD

Based on more than 25 years of research, neurofeedback is rapidly becoming accepted as an effective treatment option for ADHD. It makes use of modern computer technology and discoveries in neuroscience and enables the ADHD child or adult to learn how to regulate their impulses and focus their attention. It is especially suitable for children whose parents don't want to give their child stimulant medications and for individuals who have tried and failed or had adverse reactions with stimulant medication.

How is Neurofeedback Done?

Neurofeedback is a user friendly procedure by which brain wave activity is detected. Using a computer and video displays, individuals are able to learn how to control their brain waves. You are rewarded for producing fast brain waves and inhibiting slow brain waves. As you train yourself to control your brain waves, you are at the same time strengthening your attention, concentration and learning abilities.

Who benefits from Neurofeedback?

Neurofeedback is beneficial for just about anyone wishing to improve their concentration level. Neurofeedback also has the potential to improve your learning ability, behavior, school grades, self-esteem, job performance and overall interactions with others. Training sessions can be customized to meet an individual's needs. A free consultation is given to see if Neurofeedback is right for you.
