What Is Neurofeedback Therapy?

When you think of being healthy, you likely think of eating a nutritious diet and exercising. Those two things are certainly essential to an overall healthy lifestyle, but they fall short of a well-rounded regimen. 

To be truly healthy, you need to have excellent brain health as well. Think of your brain as the battery that powers your body. If it’s not healthy or not working properly, how can you expect your body to be healthy or work optimally? 

You can’t, and that’s why Kimberley Shine, MD, offers neurofeedback therapy at Shine Health and Wellness in Pasadena, California. 

What is neurofeedback therapy?

Neurofeedback therapy, a type of biofeedback, helps shift the frequencies of electrical energy that your brain produces. In essence, the therapy essentially remaps your brainwaves. When your brain produces too much or not enough of certain frequencies, you may experience a range of unpleasant symptoms, from fatigue to motor-control issues. 

Neurofeedback therapy aims to correct the balance of frequencies in your brain and teach your brain when to shift to the appropriate frequencies. A computer electroencephalogram (EEG) assesses your brainwaves and provides feedback, eventually directing your brainwaves to make a more desirable pattern.

What can neurofeedback therapy treat? 

This advanced therapy can treat a range of conditions, including seizures, attention-deficit disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder, insomnia, and more. Neurofeedback therapy has also successfully helped patients recover from strokes and manage age-related cognitive decline.

Who can benefit from neurofeedback therapy? 

You may benefit from neurofeedback therapy if you have symptoms of poor brain health or a condition that affects brain health. Some signs and symptoms of poor or declining brain health include: 

Conditions that affect your brain health may cause symptoms immediately or over time. Some conditions that can contribute to poor brain health include: 

If you think you may be struggling with declining brain health, the team at Shine Health and Wellness can help. To learn more, book an appointment over the phone today.
