Neurofeedback, also known as neurotherapy, EEG biofeedback and brainwave biofeedback is a revolutionary therapeutic training technology that can be used to increase personal potential and resolve a variety of conditions.
Neurofeedback is a safe, painless and non-invasive method for teaching the brain how to better regulate itself and is an alternative to medication for most issues that stem from the brain.
Neurofeedback is about training brainwave activity so that the brain is better able to self-regulate or tune itself. Many facets of your life experience and abilities will be compromised when your brainwaves are dysregulated. Using the analogy of a musical instrument, regardless of how talented a musician they are, their music will sound poor if their instrument is out of tune.
Like building a muscle or learning a new skill, strengthening new neural-pathways requires feedback and practice.
The idea that the brain can change comes from the science behind neuroplasticity or neuromodulation. It is now accepted that not only can the brain change over time, but that this is an essential part of the process of human evolution and this is how some mental health disorders are acquired. The learning method comes from the concept of ‘classical conditioning’, discovered many years ago, that unconscious behaviour can be learned by rewarding it.
