      What Is Neurofeedback Therapy?

      Neurofeedback, also called electroencephalogram (EEG) biofeedback, is a scientifically-proven biofeedback technique.

      It uses non-invasive technology to teach the brain how to function optimally, resulting in improved mental and cognitive performance.

      Based on fifty years of research and case studies, neurofeedback is an ideal drug-free alternative for patients experiencing a wide array of medical concerns, including mental and emotional distress, brain injury, and chronic fatigue.

      Shine Health and Wellness is proud to offer neurofeedback therapy to their patients. If you are interested in achieving a more balanced state of mind, schedule an appointment today! Call (626) 317-0207 or contact us online.

      How Neurofeedback Works

      The brain produces electrical energy that is categorized into four different frequency bands:

      • Alpha brain waves (relaxed or reflecting)
      • Beta brain waves (alert or working)
      • Theta brain waves (drowsy or meditative)
      • Delta brain waves (sleeping or dreaming)

      Multi-tasking activities shift the brain into faster frequency bands (beta waves), while a state of centered, relaxed, and focused attention requires the brain to shift to a slower brain wave mode (alpha waves). Too much or too little activity in any of the frequency bands can result in suboptimal brain performance.

      The goal of neurofeedback is to improve your ability to shift the brain between the desired frequency bands and achieve a state of balance. Sensors are placed on your scalp while a computer-based software program monitors brain wave activity and projects it onto a video display. The brain wave activity frequencies—such as thoughts, experiences, or states of stress or relaxation—are turned into a combination of images and sound frequencies that resemble a video game. In essence, you are playing a video game with your brain.

      Neurofeedback supports self-regulation because it helps you learn how to balance and regulate brain waves on your own, without the use of medications. When the brain is functioning optimally, the game plays normally; however, when frequency bands fall out of balance, the game will slow or stop until irregularities are corrected. With time, the brain can literally be trained to work better—a process known as neuroplasticity.

      Who Can Benefit from Neurofeedback?

      Neurofeedback has the potential to help anyone, regardless of age. It is particularly helpful for people who experience one or more of the following conditions:

      • Depression
      • Anxiety
      • Autism
      • Addiction
      • Chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS)
      • Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)
      • Traumatic brain injury
      • Chronic pain
      • Fibromyalgia
      • Brain fog and poor concentration
      • Learning disorders
      • Sleep disorders
      • Headaches and migraines
      • Poor gastrointestinal (GI) health

      Do you have Optimal Brain Performance?

      • Do you experience Brain Fog or Lack of Focus?
      • Do you have trouble Concentrating or Sustaining Attention?
      • Do you have trouble Falling Asleep, Staying Asleep or Waking from Sleep?
      • Do you have trouble with Memory Recall or Cognitive Decline?
      • Have you had a Concussion or Traumatic Brain Injury?

      If you answered YES to one or more of the above, you could have abnormal Brain Wave patterns that are interfering with Optimal Brain Function and Mental Health.

      Integrative Neurofeedback at Shine Health and Wellness

      If you are deemed a candidate for neurofeedback, you will begin treatment by first undergoing brain mapping; this will help to diagnose any abnormal brain wave activity. Based on the findings during brain mapping, a program is designed to meet your unique health needs. We use the Clear Mind Neurofeedback System to map the areas of the brain.

      Your custom program will likely include the use of neurofeedback, coupled with photic stimulation technology (pulsating lights). Research shows that the use of photic stimulation technology during a neurofeedback session will provide more accurate detection of irregular brain wave activity.

      Each neurofeedback session typically lasts 30 minutes. The number of sessions you require will depend on your condition and overall health; typically 20-40 sessions are necessary to see an improvement. While results may vary, the effects of neurofeedback can be experienced for several years to decades.

      If you are experiencing a neurological condition or any other issue which impacts regular brain function, schedule an appointment with our office to discuss integrative neurofeedback therapy.
