Neurofeedback: Brain training, The Future of Mental Health.



Much of our suffering comes from pervasive, recurring thoughts and feelings in which our minds become emotional stranded or stuck. This can often feel like a rut.


This emotional stickiness is often associated with dysregulation that impacts our central nervous system.


Dysregulation reflects an under responsive, over responsive or unstable nervous system. Most people are born with a pretty healthy nervous system, and regulated brainwave functioning. Through epigenetic, our environmental factors will impact our genes, influencing our brain wave functions.

During certain periods in our life we are more genetically vulnerable to our environment, gestation, early post natal and during any hormonal rearrangement.

Some situations enhance our brain waves and other cause dysregulation.


An example is excess stress:


Excess stress can cause our nervous system to be over responsive. This over responsive might result in difficulty in turning off your thinking mind. The inability to turn off thoughts can influence your sleep, keep you stuck in the emotional distress you experienced.

While medication and behavioral interventions can do a good job at treating the symptom, we need to retrain the brain to regain better control and focus.


Neurofeedback works on our brain, reinforcing and improving a variety of symptoms associated with different conditions.


How does neurofeedback work?


Neurofeedback studies our brain waves and then provides feedback to our central nervous system, about what it has just done.

In the process of neurofeedback, our subconscious gets reinforced for changing its own behaviors. By reinforcing the subconscious through computers you get visual and auditory reinforcement.


By creating new electoral activity through a process of measurement and reinforcement the brain learns to self regulate, calming the central nervous system. This reduces or eliminates a lot of mental health symptoms such as:fears, depression, anxiety, insomnia, behavioral issues and more.


Self regulation allows the central nervous system to function better.


Learning control over specific neural substrates has been shown to change specific behaviors.


The American Pediatric Academy has endorsed Neurofeedback as “Level 1/ Best Support” treatment for children with ADHD.


Neurofeedback is 100% non invasive, drug free, brain training system that helps the central nervous system make the best use of the brains natural resources.
