You Have the Power
Neurofeedback has been described as a holistic scientific therapy that allows people to change their own habits or behaviors and enhance their performance and concentration. Backed by decades of published research, this evidence-based subset of biofeedback uses the graphics or “feedback” from an EEG to help people retrain their own brains and in some cases vastly improve the quality of their lives.
The technology is much like a video game that lets you see on a computer screen what is happening with your brain in real time. It’s like using a map app. While you’re taking the journey through your inner terrain, neurofeedback is the navigation system showing you where you are and suggesting the best way to get where it is you want to go.
Knowledge is power. Neurofeedback gives you the knowledge of how your brain works and then shows you through experience how to use it to your advantage to change or improve some facet of your own behavior. Like learning that video game, no one has to really tell you how to do it. By doing it, you learn how. In that way, Neurofeedback has been compared to riding a bike. Someone you trust demonstrates how it works and supports you a few times, but it’s getting on the bike and figuring it out that eventually, and quickly, proves successful.
Do you remember what that felt like? All of a sudden you “got it.” You were in control of your own destiny. Parts of the world you had never ventured into before became accessible. It’s the same with neurofeedback therapy.
A therapist or technician will help put some small, metal discs on your head which will transmit impulses to some computer equipment. You will be guided to interpret what you are seeing on the readout of the EEG (electroencephalogram) and finally, you’ll learn to manipulate what you are seeing, using only your thoughts and techniques suggested by your therapist.
Harnessing the powerful mind-body connection, an educated Neurofeedback Therapist, and the “feedback” from one’s own brain, people have trained themselves to treat their own migraines, chronic pain, anxiety, PTSD, addiction and ADHD. This type of therapy has been widely shown to help those with different learning, stress and attention abilities to focus, learn, remember and thrive in environments that formerly hindered them. If you want to reach new goals, improve performance or change a behavior or thought-pattern, we invite you to try Neurofeedback with an expert, Dr. Mohsen Mohamadi PsyD.
