Neurofeedback trains the brain to function more efficiently. We observe your brain in action and share visual feedback in real time. Then we reward your brain for adopting more appropriate patterns—which it does on its own, with no input from your subjective consciousness! This learning process applies to any measurable aspect of brain function.
Also called "EEG Biofeedback," Neurofeedback is self-regulation training based on electrical brain activity, recorded by an electroencephalogram (EEG). The EEG simply listens to your brain activity via the gentle application of sensitive pads to the scalp (entirely safe and comfortable). Then it visualizes that electrical activity, allowing your brain to begin to shape itself toward a more desirable and regulated performance. Self-regulation is a necessary part of good brain function; it enables your central nervous system to function in a more harmonious, healthy manner.
"If any medication had demonstrated such a wide spectrum of efficacy, it would be universally accepted and widely used."

Neurofeedback addresses myriad problems of brain dysregulation, including:
While medication and behavioral interventions can be effective for treating symptoms like ADD or ADHD, neurofeedback retrains the brain to regain better control and focus. This method is about building up the person, focused on the qualities they already possess.
Anxiety is a common response to stress, and sufferers often feel overwhelmed and fatigued. Neurofeedback can help guide your brain to change how it responds to stimuli that disturb our physical or mental equilibrium. This can lead to a more balanced and rewarding life.
Concentration, focus, and emotional control are key to achieving optimal performance in all fields. Athletes and executives alike are taking advantage of neurofeedback technologies to learn how to utilize the full potential of their minds to reach peak performance.
