What is Neurofeedback/Biofeedback?
Neurofeedback is a non-invasive method of brain conditioning. It is an interactive and engaging type of therapy that helps you strengthen and regulate your brain to help you reach a better functional state. Neurofeedback works by monitoring your brainwave activity in real-time and rewarding the brain when favorable communications are made. This helps your brain learn to function more efficiently through instant feedback. Biofeedback is an alternative treatment approach that can help with overall stress reduction and increased well-being. Heart Rate Variability (HRV) biofeedback has been used to specifically target anxiety disorders and depression. Biofeedback is a well-documented and researched technique that uses signals from your own body to gain control over your body’s response to stress. Biofeedback is known to increase the level of oxygenation in each brain region, which has been shown to have positive effects (including providing mental clarity & enhanced focus). Biofeedback helps you to be in tune with processes that are usually automatic and out of our control. Through biofeedback you can learn to be in control of these autonomic processes, which will in turn provide you with cognitive flexibility and the ability to better manage stressful situations.
