The Benefits of Neurofeedback Therapy

While anybody with a brain can benefit from neurofeedback therapy, it has been used primarily for three reasons:

  1. To help people reduce the symptoms of ADHD, Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, Anxiety, depression, tinnitus, and many other neurological disorders.
  2. To improve the cognitive performance of any person who wants to optimize their brain.  This can include students, athletes, musicians, business executives, and any person who is looking for an edge with regards to mental fitness and brain optimization.
  3. To treat sleep disorders and insomnia.

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.

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.

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.
