What is Neurofeedback?

Neurofeedback is a breakthrough therapeutic treatment that places direct emphasis on the brain. By studying, analyzing, and interpreting information from brainwaves allows us to noticed specific electrical patterns and related activity. This information from the brain, or neuro feedback, helps us to be able to change tracked symptoms and diminish unwanted ones. Through self-regulation, we enable our Bristol patients to diminish anxiety, depressions, and various other physical symptoms. We provide the people of Bristol with a better understanding of cranial functions, creating a more calming balance in their lives.

What is Biofeedback?

Biofeedback is an additional therapeutic treatment that branches further off of Neurofeedback. Biofeedback, as the name implies, focuses on the connection between both the mind and the body. By measuring the body and related information received through the brain, we can understand the condition of our Bristol patients. This self-analysis allows for better control of bodily functions, like breathing, skin temperatures, and heart rate. Biofeedback techniques are targeted on small, sometimes subtle changes and how your body responds. By learning to control these autonomic functions, our Bristol patients can reduce related stress and achieve a healthier way of life.*

What is QEEG?

A quantitative electroencephalogram refers to an individualized brain map. Known more simply as a QEEG, it helps us measure the electrical activity on the surface of the scalp. When we can understand brainwaves and associated patterns, we can find related cortical activity. The QEEG data helps Dr. Roseann in understanding the condition and how to diminish symptoms for our Bristol patients. We are able to establish a specialized and specific treatment plan. All of our efforts are personalized to the individual needs of our Bristol, CT clients.

Common Neurofeedback & Biofeedback Questions:

How Does Neurofeedback Work?

Neurofeedback is a treatment technique that focuses on the brain and regulating brainwaves. Through this method, we help our Bristol patients learn to control, regulate, and then modify specific cranial activity. Computers and modern technology enables us to track certain brainwaves and related functions, and then follow up on the respective responses. Once we understand this pattern, we can promote certain frequencies or decrease them to establish a new electrical pattern. This new pattern is reinforced through a cranial reward system to solidify the beneficial change. Your brain is then able to self-regulate and lead to a more constant feeling of wellbeing and improved performance.*

What Does the Neurofeedback Process Involve?

The treatment process of Neurofeedback begins with a QEEG brain map. This allows for proper understanding of the cranial functions and bodily reactions. Dr. Roseann will personally analyze the QEEG data, then meet with you individually to discuss the information. We then create a treatment plan specific to your needs, and you are able to start the treatment sessions. We strive to have every plan personalized to the exact needs of our Bristol patients, which results in varying treatment sessions. On average, our Bristol patients visit our office two to three times a week. A treatment session consists of placing harmless sensors on the scalp and ears, then measuring received brainwaves while you watch a film.

How Do You Monitor Progress?

We monitor progress in three primary ways:

  • by analyzing the QEEG data on regular intervals
  • collecting specific data during each feedback session
  • checking symptoms and selected monitors

Is the Therapy Supported by Research?

Neurofeedback and Biofeedback treatment techniques have been validated by reviewed studies throughout the past 40 years. These alternative methods are safe, effective, and beneficial, particularly in avoiding potentially harmful treatments.
