What is EEG Biofeedback?

EEG Biofeedback* is training your brain with gentle exercises that help your brain and nervous system work more smoothly and efficiently.

Your brain loves to operate in a smooth, calm way. When it remembers how to do that, through the exercise of Biofeedback EEG, your brain grows stronger and becomes even better at what it does naturally.

Think about it like going to the gym, lifting weights, attending yoga classes, and becoming more flexible as you do your yoga postures. Both result in creating a more muscular body and mind. Brain training does the same. Exercising your brain with EEG Biofeedback impacts your mood, your focus, your energy level, and your sleep in positive ways, especially for those who are highly sensitive. It is not therapy, though it is often done in tandem with therapy. It is training and exercising your mind.

Think of your brain as a soccer team.

Imagine your brain is like a soccer team with different players representing various brain functions. Sometimes, these players get out of sync, leading to chaos on the field - like in your thoughts and feelings. EEG biofeedback acts like a coach, guiding each player to work harmoniously, creating smooth and coordinated gameplay - like precise, focused thoughts and improving mood. For example, the players run around wildly if you're anxious. The neurofeedback coach helps them calm down, find their positions, and play as a team, resulting in a more balanced and peaceful mind. Or if you're feeling sad or depressed, the players are sluggish and not communicating well. The neurofeedback coach helps them find their energy, communicate better, and play as a team, resulting in a more balanced and uplifted state of mind.

And guess what? The coach knows what to do because you are the coach, too. Here's what that means: You receive a neuro assessment, coach your neurofeedback provider about your symptoms and health goals, and your provider translates your coaching into a unique training program that helps the soccer team of your brain work towards playing together to take the shot and make the goal.

I'm curious about Neurofeedback. Is it safe?

Biofeedback EEG is gentle and safe, especially for sensitive people. It involves putting sensors on your head, which act like ears, to listen to your brain's signals. Similar t how a coach listens to you and helps you get better at a sport. There's no electrical energy going in. And if you're taking medicine, it's okay—lots of people find that brain training can work well alongside their medicine. Of course, share this info with your prescriber so you feel comfortable.
