Neurofeedback is a drug-free approach to treating Anxiety, Depression, ADHD, Migraines, Insomnia, Memory & Cognitive Function and even Autism. The brain is not hard-wired, it is not limited or fixed in its abilities to heal. Join Amber Ratcliffe and Lori DiBartolo as they discuss how Neurofeedback Therapy can help you achieve life changing results.
A qEEG (Quantitative Electroencephalogram) is a diagnostic tool that measures electrical activity in the form of brain wave patterns. It is sometimes referred to as “brain mapping.”
It shows the cortical electrical activity in the brain. The brainmaps shows if the activity is too high or too low in particular areas, and it can reveal how your brain cells are communicating with each other. It may be helpful in many ways, including:
Neurofeedback uses advanced computer technology to assess brain wave activity in real time and is a fun, interactive, non-invasive, medication-free treatment. You can strengthen and retrain your brain to gain control of your brain waves through self-regulation, so you can achieve the desired brain state whether that be to relax or become more focused. The ability to keep your brain in a normal wave pattern is key to optimizing your behavior and emotional health.
Who can benefit?
Children and adults find neurofeedback helpful for a variety of conditions related to:
Additional Information in ADD/ADHD:
Over the past 30 years, many clinicians have reported success in treating ADD/ADHD with neurofeedback. In 2012, the American Academy of Pediatrics named neurofeedback a “Level 1: ‘Best Support’ intervention for ADD/ADHD, on par with medication”.
Research on Neurofeedback:
ADD/ADHD: Teachers noticed significant improvement in attention and parents noticed improvements in attention, impulsivity and hyperactivity in this review of existing research.
Depression: People with treatment-resistant depression saw a reduction in functional impairment and an improvement in symptoms after neurofeedback in this 2017 study.
Anxiety: In a study of two patients with anxiety, both reported a significant reduction in symptoms following treatment, and one year later report being symptom free.
Memory: In the journal, Alzheimer’s and Dementia, it was reported that patients showed significant improvement in recall and working memory after neurofeedback treatments.
Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI): Traumatic Brain Injury survivors showed a reduction of symptoms related to attention, mood, and mindfulness after neurofeedback in military and civilian populations.
PTSD: A group of 28 people with chronic PTSD experienced significant improvement in symptoms and emotional regulation after completing neurofeedback.
Addictions: After neurofeedback, scientists at UCLA found higher abstinence rates in people with addictions.
