Neurofeedback is based on more than three decades of research and is a specific form of biofeedback which involves the measurement and feedback of brainwave activity for the purpose of allowing one to increase their ability to regulate their central nervous system. It utilizes very small EEG (electroencephalogram) signals obtained from sensors on the scalp, to monitor the brainwaves and provide corresponding feedback to the brain. Neurofeedback is essentially brainwave training, a tool for the brain to directly learn flexibility, mental control and ultimately increased stability and resiliency. Improvements in attention, impulse control, mood, sleep and cognitive functioning are often observed with training.
We had our son who is two evaluated because of behavior issues that were not age appropriate and were causing such damage to our family life. We heard this term “Sensory Integration” and couldn’t believe what we were being told. As a family we decided to explore this type of therapy and figured what could it hurt. We was so unhappy and angry, we were willing to try anything except medication! In three months we have been amazed at the transformation in our son, he is happy, calm, plays independently and socially he plays so well with other children. It has brought us together as a family, the blame of “you’re a stay at home mom, why is his behavior so bad” has stopped. We know how to help him when he needs it. Our time here has changed our life on the most positive ways.
