What is Neurofeedback?

Neurofeedback is a non-medicated treatment used to study the information (feedback) from your brainwaves (neuro) to introduce change to your system.* Normally the brain will self-regulate which helps calm your nervous system and decrease your symptoms. Without the ability to self-regulate, problems will occur in your central nervous system such as anxiety, depression or even physical symptoms. Biofeedback is different from Neurofeedback because it involves autonomic functions.

What is Biofeedback?

The process of Biofeedback involves learning how to control your bodily functions like breath, heart rate or skin temperature. Treatment will include using electrical sensors to measure and give information (feedback) about your body (bio). This will give us access to information about your subtle changes like relaxing muscles or reducing stress. Biofeedback is different from Neurofeedback because you’re learning how to control your autonomic functions. More power over your body can lead to an improved state of health.*

What is QEEG?

A QEEG (quantitative electroencephalogram) brain map measures the electrical patterns of your cortical activity. A quantitative EEG is usually a computer analysis of the EEG data. This data is then compared to a database of other results to see what patterns could be a sign of depression, anxiety and others. A QEEG will be used for treatment planning and progress.*

Common Neurofeedback & Biofeedback Questions:

How Does Neurofeedback Work?

The process of Neurofeedback will help you learn to modify your brainwave activity. With the help of computers, our practitioners will be able to monitor your brain functioning. This will help us determine if you need to promote or reduce specific brainwave frequencies and then reward your brain for changing its activity. By using this reinforcement technique, we hope to produce new electrical activity in the brain and help shape brainwave activity to a more desirable, regulated performance. This will also help to result in symptom reduction and self-regulation.*

What Does the Neurofeedback Process Involve?

Your Neurofeedback treatment will first begin with a QEEG brain map, where your QEEG activity will be recorded and analyzed by Dr. Roseann herself. She will then meet with you, review your brain map and create a custom treatment plan. After your plan has been established, you can choose to start your Neurofeedback sessions immediately if you wish to do so. The number of sessions you attend can range from 20 to 100 or more.* Most of our Gaylordssville clients will come into our office twice a week. Your sessions will include placing sensors on your scalp and ears while you receive brainwave reinforcement.

How Do You Know Which Therapy I Need?

After you receive a QEEG, Dr. Roseann will take a look at your results and provide you with a treatment recommendation. Your treatment will be based off your QEEG results and clinical intake. That way you’ll receive an appropriate therapy or therapies to assist you. We proudly serve our Gaylordsville residents with our alternative therapies.

How Do You Monitor Progress?

We will monitor your progress in three different ways:

  •         Through QEEGs at regular intervals to objectively look at brain functioning
  •         Through data collection at every Neurofeedback sessions
  •         Through regular customized symptom checklist progress monitoring

Is the Therapy Supported by Research?

Neurofeedback is a safe, non-medicated treatment that can help a variety of conditions that children and adults face. To support its validity, you should know that there are thousands of research studies that have been produced over the past 40 years. In 2013, The American Academy of Pediatrics gave it a Level 1 effectiveness rating for the treatment of ADHD, confirming that it has the same effectiveness as medication.*
