Welcome to our Neurofeedback Brainwave Training Center! Here, we are committed to helping individuals of all ages gain control over mental health conditions including anxiety, panic attacks, ADD, ADHD, poor sleep, depression, eating disorders, pain, chronic fatigue, and more—without medication or with reduced reliance on medication. We believe in harnessing the power of the brain for improved mental health and wellness.

Conditions Treated With Neurofeedback
Neurofeedback can reduce anxiety by harnessing the brain's capacity for change and promoting self-regulation. By teaching the brain to modify its own brainwave activity, individuals can achieve a state of relaxation and calm, significantly reducing baseline arousal levels. This non-invasive treatment also helps in reducing panic attacks, obsessive worries and thoughts, and physical tension, while fostering a healthy mind-body connection.
Neurofeedback utilizes real-time displays of brain activity to help regulate mood patterns, which can lead to improved mood and reduced depressive symptoms. In essence, neurofeedback provides individuals with the ability to learn how to shift their brain activity towards healthier patterns, thereby combating depressive states. Neurofeedback can lift the mood by increasing baseline arousal levels, evening out mood swings, reducing symptoms of dissociation, and reducing irritation and anger while increasing optimism and hopefulness.
Neurofeedback can effectively alleviate symptoms related to trauma and PTSD by guiding the brain to access calm and relaxed states, promoting emotional regulation. This process can help to reduce hypervigilance and intrusive thoughts, common symptoms associated with these conditions. Additionally, it allows individuals to better handle stressors and reduce their overall arousal level, leading to improved resilience and well-being.
Neurofeedback has demonstrated its efficacy in improving ADD and ADHD symptoms by training the brain to increase its attention span and reduce impulsive behavior. It regulates brainwave patterns associated with attention and focus, allowing individuals to experience decreased distractibility and improved task completion. This non-invasive treatment not only provides a natural and long-lasting solution, improving cognitive functioning and behavior without the need for medication, but can also enhance the effects of medication.
As neurofeedback settles and stabilizes the nervous system it can address many of the symptoms that perpetuate eating disorders. It promotes better emotion regulation, reducing body image concerns and food fears. It can also reduce stress and stress-driven eating or food restricting patterns. Furthermore, neurofeedback aids in quieting critical thoughts, increasing a sense of inner calm and self-confidence, while lifting optimism and mood, and improving body image.
Performance, Health & Wellness
Neurofeedback has the potential to boost general health and wellness by promoting better sleep patterns, enhancing mood, and improving cognitive performance. It aids in the reduction of stress and anxiety levels, which directly contributes to overall well-being and productivity. Whether at work or play, individuals can experience improved concentration, memory, and decision-making abilities, leading to optimized performance and gratification in their daily lives.
How Neurofeedback Supports
Your Mental Health
Neurofeedback improves self-regulation of emotions, thoughts, and behavior through a process known as operant conditioning, a type of reinforcement learning. This process guides the brain to adopt healthier patterns, hence improving many mental health conditions. Here's how neurofeedback works:
During a Neurofeedback session, you will sit in a comfy chair, in front of a monitor. Electrodes will be placed on your scalp in patterns that correspond to the therapeutic effects we are targeting. The electrodes detect real-time brainwave activity. This activity is then displayed on the monitor in the form of a game, movie, or sound. The type of brainwave activity being reinforced is represented in the feedback.
The principle of reinforcement learning comes into play here. When the brain produces the desired brainwave activity, positive feedback is given (for example, the movie plays smoothly or the game advances), reinforcing that particular pattern. If the brain deviates from the desired activity, negative feedback occurs (the movie pauses or the game stalls), guiding the brain back towards the target activity. For example, a client struggling with anxiety is guided to produce brainwave activity associated with a calm mind. A client struggling with ADD is guided to produce activity that lifts energy, focus, and attention.
Learning and Adaptation
Over time, with regular training, the brain learns to associate the positive feedback with the healthier brainwave pattern. Through this repeated reinforcement, the brain becomes more adept at entering these healthier states on its own, leading to improved self-regulation and reduction of problematic symptoms. This is much like learning to ride a bike: with practice, the brain learns to maintain balance and coordination.
As the brain learns to better regulate itself, individuals experience improvements in emotional regulation, thought patterns, and behavior. For instance, someone who struggles with anxiety will settle into a calmer state, thereby reducing anxious feelings and thoughts. Similarly, someone struggling with impulsivity will learn to produce brainwave activity associated with calm and focus, reducing impulsive behaviors.
Through this process, neurofeedback can help improve a wide range of mental health conditions by enhancing the brain's ability to self-regulate.
Training the Brain into Wellness
Relax in a Comfy Chair
During your neurofeedback session, you will sit comfortably in a chair while observing a pleasant scene or engaging in a neurofeedback game on a monitor.
Watch a Pleasant Scene
Electrodes will be placed in specific patterns on your head to capture brainwave activity without any invasive procedure. These electrodes transmit the brainwave data to a computer, which then analyzes the information and sends signals back to your brain through the scene on the monitor.
Develop Inner Peace
Your brain will adapt its activity in response to signals, finding a regulated state. With training, and over time, this regulated state becomes your new baseline, fostering mental clarity, productivity, wellness, and a profound sense of tranquility.
One of the primary benefits of neurofeedback is improved self-regulation. Through real-time feedback, individuals learn to control their brainwave patterns, leading to better regulation of emotions, thoughts, and behaviors. This can have a significant impact on managing and resolving various mental health conditions such as eating disorders, anxiety, depression, ADHD, and more.
Non-Invasive and Drug-Free
Neurofeedback is a non-invasive, drug-free approach to mental health resolution. This makes it a valuable option for individuals who may be sensitive to medications or prefer not to use them. Since neurofeedback relies on training the brain rather than altering its chemistry, it also tends to have fewer side effects than many traditional treatments.
Every individual's brain is unique, and neurofeedback accounts for this uniqueness. The therapy can be tailored to each person's specific brainwave patterns and mental health needs, making it a highly personalized form of treatment. This increases the likelihood of successful outcomes, as the treatment is designed to address the individual's specific challenges.
Long Lasting Effects
Neurofeedback training has the potential for long-lasting effects. As individuals learn to self-regulate their brainwave activity, these new patterns can become ingrained, leading to sustained improvements in mental health even after the treatment has ended. This is particularly beneficial for individuals seeking a long-term solution to their mental health concerns.
"Before I started neurofeedback training, I struggled with maintaining focus - both at work and in my personal life. It was like my mind was a television with someone else constantly changing the channels. After several sessions of neurofeedback training, I’ve noticed a significant change. I can concentrate on tasks for longer periods without getting sidetracked, my productivity has increased and I feel more present in my day-to-day life. It's like I finally have control of the remote."
