Let’s Talk About Neurofeedback
The Neurofeedback method has been receiving much more credit in recent months, though there are still so many who are unaware that this treatment exists. Many of those who have had Neurofeedback sessions and felt its benefits, myself included, doubt that it truly works. As a practicing Neurofeedback practioner for several years, and survivor who used this method to regain my life, I feel very strongly about it’s benefits. Also known as Neurotherapy or EEG biofeedback, Neurofeedback is a proven method of treatment for several conditions, including:
- Concussion/Brain Injury and Stroke
- Sleeping problems
- Learning difficulties
- Headaches and migraines
- Anxiety and panic attacks
- Chronic pain
Think of Neurofeedback/Biofeedback as exercise for your brain. When your brain is “stuck” you aren’t able to function at your optimal level. This approach modifies your brainwaves, training your brain to function more effectively.
As a survivor of a stroke and multiple concussions, I tried innumerable treatment methods to help with my symptoms. It wasn’t until I tried Neurofeedback/Biofeedback treatment (along with a change in my diet) that I felt a major difference in how I was able to function. During my time as a Neurofeedback practitioner, I have also watched this method help so many of patients.
