What is Neurofeedback?

Neurofeedback is a safe and alternative therapy treatment method that is effective in ways that other methods can’t be. Neurofeedback operates on a subconscious level, creating changes in the brainwaves for positive reinforcement to decrease undesired outcomes. We help our Woodbridge patients learn to control and self-regulate brainwaves, which can help calm the nervous system. This results in an increase in focus, decrease in anxiety, and much more.

What is Biofeedback?

Biofeedback is similar to Neurofeedback in the sense of self-regulation and control. This takes it another step further and enables our Woodbridge patients to learn to control bodily functions and physiological responses. You can learn to control autonomic functions, like muscle tension, body temperature, and heart rate, which can help reduce stress.* The body and mind are closely connected, and learning to control the body more directly can help lead to controlling behaviors and emotions. Biofeedback aims to help our Woodbridge clients capitalize on physical performance.

What is QEEG?

An EEG, or electroencephalogram, is a brain map for each patient that tracks specific electrical activities and related responses. A QEEG, or quantitative electroencephalogram, is the study and collected data of the EEG information. With a computer analysis of this data, we can then compare them against a standard to better understand certain patterns and conditions. A QEEG is a painless process that is crucial for beginning the treatment process.

Common Neurofeedback & Biofeedback Questions:

How Does Neurofeedback Work?

Neurofeedback is a personalized process that aims to help all of our Woodbridge patients learn more about their brainwaves and how to control them. The study of the brain (neuro) and related or respective information (feedback) can help treat a variety of conditions in a safe and effective manner. Neurofeedback operates on a subconscious level of reinforcing brainwave changes, eliminating undesirable ones and supporting positive ones. As our patients learn to control and regulate these brainwaves, they can essentially retrain the brain to operate how they would like or how would be beneficial in situations they need it. These new brainwaves and electrical patterns are established through repeated practices and treatment sessions with a reward system.

What Does the Neurofeedback Process Involve?

The process is an individualized one, tailored to the exact needs of our Woodbridge patients. Each one, though, begins with an EEG and QEEG. This data helps us better understand the specific needs of each situation. With a proper understanding of the condition, Dr. Roseann will create a treatment plan for you. Neurofeedback involves placing harmless sensors on the head, scalp, and ears. We make sure all of our Woodbridge patients are customers during this process. Brainwave reinforcement then begins while you watch a movie. As every patient and every condition is different, every treatment process can differ as well. The number of sessions can vary, but on average, our Woodbridge patients visit our office two times a week.

How Do I Get Started with Neuro/BioFeedback?

We want to help you on the path to healing as soon as possible. Before beginning actual treatment sessions, we first need to perform a personalized QEEG. Once this data has been analyzed and a protocol designed, you can then begin your treatment process. To begin a QEEG, call us today to schedule when would be best for you to come in. We additionally offer information sessions of our Neurofeedback treatments for your convenience.
