Neurofeedback, also called EEG Biofeedback or brain training, helps train your brain to self-regulate, stabilize, and correct issues that impact your health and overall functioning. A self-regulated brain improves the functioning of the central nervous system, mental performance, emotional regulation, and physiological stability. Neurofeedback is like taking your brain to the gym where your brain becomes healthier and functions optimally by learning how to self-regulate.
-What can Neurofeedback treat? Everything from ADHD, Anxiety and Autism to Chronic Pain, Migraines and Sleep issues.
-Who can benefit? Children, Teens & Adults. We specialize in working with children who struggle with ADHD, Anxiety, and Autism.
-How does it work? Your brain learns how to correct the dysregulated issues via electrodes on your head reading your brain waves while our program provides auditory, visual, and tactile feedback based on your specific brain waves.
