What Is Neurofeedback?
“Neurofeedback (EEG biofeedback) technology gives the brain the information about its own electrical output, in the form of visual and auditory feedback, which shows the brain how to function more efficiently. The brain learns how to repeat these efficient states on its own, resulting in client feeling calmer, more focused, confident, composed, and energetic."
This method is non-invasive and safe.
If there is dysregulation in the brain or underlined emotional trauma, the brain may not produce its natural opiates, like dopamine or serotonin. This can lead to serious disorders like anxiety and depression. Unfortunately, people turn to drugs and alcohol for relief.
This is where this brain therapy comes into play. It provides the brain an internal mirror so the brain can monitor what it is doing. It does this by watching its own brainwave and retraining itself to a more balanced state.
Studies show 77% of people who have brain feedback therapy, along with a 12 step program, have remained abstinent for a year and a half or longer. Having this therapy can make the process of recovery flow with ease and comfort.” - EEGinfo.com
Neurofeedback at Landmark Recovery
Patients at Landmark Recovery receive neurofeedback sessions that teach the brain how to function in healthier and more balanced ways. This program is a non-invasive therapy that reprograms abnormal brain wave patterns to make them function more optimally. What this means is that the brain can better self-regulate itself, and a more balanced individual emerges.
This feedback process can be equated to learning to ride a bike or bake a cake. You must learn through experience, and you can’t understand how to perform activities through reading an instruction booklet or recipe.
Once you jump on the bike or start mixing ingredients, your brainwave patterns signal that something has been processed and learned. Similarly, this type of therapy provides information about how your brain is working.
“Think of it as an experience that helps you do something better.”
Sensors are placed on your head to pick up brain signals, which are then amplified. This information coming from the brain's electrical signals is then displayed on the screen of a computer giving the brain a way to see itself in action.
This treatment identifies regions of the brain not working correctly and provides insight into the individual’s neurological issues such as anxiety, insomnia, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and addiction just to name a few.
