Clinical success rates for treating common neurological disorders and improving cognitive performance.
In fact, an important organization for publicizing biofeedback research, Child and Adolescent Psychiatric Clinics of North America, is on record stating that “There is a large body of scientific research documenting the effectiveness of neurofeedback for several areas of psychological or neurodevelopmental difficulty. These studies have been published in numerous scientific and professional journals in the US and abroad. Unfortunately, many healthcare professionals are not aware of the extent of the research support.”
For patients with disorders related to irregular brainwave activity, neurofeedback provides a non-invasive and drug-free alternative to traditional approaches which often include long-term prescriptions and serious side-effects. As an additional benefit, since neurofeedback therapy changes the function of the brain (back towards a normal state), many patients experience long-term improvements.
Finally, for patients who hope to improve their sleep, neurofeedback provides an effective treatment without the risks and side-effects that come with sleeping pills.
For patients wanting to improve their cognitive performance for professional or personal reasons (i.e., unrelated to a neurological condition), neurofeedback offers an opportunity to optimize the brain without risk of side-effects or injury. The key to peak performance, no matter what the specific field, includes concentration, focus, and emotional control. When patients take advantage of neurofeedback therapy, they are being trained to utilize the full potential of their brains as they train for optimal performance.
While each of these brainwaves is responsive for different body functions, they all are equally important to your health and well-being. Researchers have known for decades the correlation between irregular brain waves and common neurological conditions, and neurofeedback is the first field to directly target these irregular brain waves and restore them to normal ranges.
“After 20 sessions of neurofeedback, my short term memory and focus have improved. I’m doing better in school and getting better grades”
