In many of our client cases we are training the brain to balance mood in adults and improve emotion regulation in children. Anxiety, depression, feeling overwhelmed, or simply not sleeping well can have a huge impact on quality of life. These things diminish energy resources, tax our patience, and impact relationships.
Teaching the brain the new skill of controlling nervous system arousal states is easy with our new software. We consider things like anxiety, insomnia, the brain’s signaling system for pain, tics, OCD, and mania [among many others] to be an expression of over-arousal in the nervous system. Under-arousal can be expressed as depression, lack of motivation, disinterest, etcetera. Attention deficits are a combination of both. By utilizing a tool like EEG (electroencephalogram) brain training, we can teach your brain to perform better permanently.
Based on neuroplasticity, or the brain’s ability to learn new things throughout a lifetime, our software teaches your brain to see that remaining in an over- or under-aroused state is inefficient and a waste of energy resources. Once your brain learns this simple fact, or skill, it will continue to use it forever. It’s like learning a new dance. The software coaches the brain on the new moves and after some practice, your brain learns how to put those moves together into a new dance (or state of being). Life improves when you have some new ‘moves.’
We’ve been waiting for the ‘future’ to provide us with better options to medication and it has. It’s here and it’s been around for enough decades to be a proven, effective medication alternative. The American Association of Pediatrics has named EEG biofeedback, aka neurofeedback, a Level 1 treatment for attention deficits. Level 1 is the AAP’s highest level of treatment. With an efficacy rate consistently hovering around 80%, it’s been a lifesaver for our clients.
