What is Neurotherapy?
Neurotherapy, also called neurofeedback (NFB), EEG biofeedback, or brainwave training is a type of alternative therapy, more specifically a type of biofeedback that uses realtime displays of electroencephalography (EEG) to illustrate brain activity. By recording brain wave activity using sensors placed on the head, a practitioner can gather information about why an individual may be having clinical symptoms based on what is happening in their brain. States of neurophysiological over-arousal or under-arousal can contribute to why a client may be manifesting symptoms of anxiety, depression, obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD), attention deficit disorder (ADD), and a variety of other stressful conditions. Once initial information has been gathered, neurofeedback can be used to track brain wave activity, and train the brain to operate more efficiently by providing visual and auditory feedback to the client as their brain wave patterns improve and self-regulation occurs.
