If you’re like I was, you’re looking into neurofeedback after trying many different things to function better in some way. Maybe you’ve had it with feeling anxiety or depression. Maybe ADHD, insomnia or chronic pain is slowing you down. Or, maybe you want to be mentally sharper, increase your IQ and live with more ease and joy. Sometimes there’s a plateau in therapy, medication or other treatments, yet you know better functioning is possible. There’s a desire for lasting improvements as opposed to only small gains. More than anything, you’d like to just get on with life operating more at your own personal best.
It’s in this space that many people are introduced to neurofeedback. Neurofeedback quite literally improves how our brain and nervous system function, allowing for more optimal, overall well-being. Those who’ve done neurofeedback routinely report better focus, attention and concentration. Anxiety diminishes and sleep becomes more restorative. Neurofeedback is an elegant tool which helps the brain help itself.
Neurofeedback is quite simply the most effective and affordable treatment available to help an array of conditions. The innate adaptability of the human brain – it’s neuroplasticity – makes healing from many conditions possible. It literally reaches the root cause of imbalances in the brain at the source of dysregulation, unlike medications which simply mask the cause of ailments such as depression, anxiety, insomnia, ADHD or PTSD.
Neurofeedback is evidence-based and backed by numerous research studies, with a high rate of clinical efficacy. Promoting better self-regulation by calming the brain and nervous system, it helps our stabilize our emotions and reactions to things. People of all ages – from infant to elder – may benefit from neurofeedback because it is completely safe and non-invasive.
As a practitioner, I address the unique needs of each client and tailor a plan specifically for that individual. I have a solid understanding of the neuroscience behind how and why it works and I’m always eager to talk about the latest research. The field of neurofeedback is advancing rapidly because it works so well. People are looking for safe and healthy treatment alternatives. It’s an exciting time to be doing this work and I’m eager to share it with you!
