What is neurofeedback training?

Neurofeedback trains the brain to function in a unique way—causing it to learn to function more efficiently. A trained neurofeedback clinician observes the brain in action from moment to moment. We then show the brain information back to the person, rewarding the brain for changing its own activity to more appropriate patterns. This creates a gradual learning process for the patient. This treatment can be used for any type of brain function that we can be measured.

What are the side effects of neurofeedback?

Neurofeedback works the brain in the same way exercise works a muscle. Consequently, one of the most obvious side effects of neurofeedback is fatigue. But this weariness is more similar to the type of exhaustion that comes from serious study or mentally taxing activities. Those with serious traumas may feel old feelings returning before they go away for good. If you’ve had a brain injury you will want to report this to your therapist so proper precautions can be taken to protect the health of your brain.

Does neurofeedback work for anxiety?

Several studies show neurofeedback can be an effective treatment for anxiety, but more research is needed. We have found it to be helpful for our clients suffering from anxiety. Neurofeedback can be a good solution when more common treatment methods like cognitive behavioral therapy have proven unsuccessful. Neurofeedback should be conducted in conjunction with individual and family counseling.
