What is neurofeedback?
Neurofeedback, aka EEG biofeedback, is brain training that teaches your brain to work more efficiently and handle stress better. Since the 1960s, this technology has evolved so much over six decades that now Fortune 500 executives, elite athletes, and Navy SEALs use it to improve their mental game and recover from stress more quickly.
How does neurofeedback work?
BrainSpa uses the newest software on the market today. Through music alone, a language easily understood by the brain, our software teaches your brain to be less reactive to everyday stressors. It sounds easy, but there’s a lot of complicated software behind it. This is not a short-term or placebo effect; it’s a learning process that happens at the subconscious level.
Our easy and relaxing training shows your brain how to balance itself and gain better control over unwanted thoughts and behaviors. A well-balanced brain contributes signiﬁcantly to mental stability and positive stress responses. On average, most people need around 40 sessions to feel a permanent improvement in everyday functioning. Many people can complete 40 sessions in under a month.
In each training session, our software monitors your unique brain activity with a real-time EEG and alerts it (through music) when activity goes out of balance. As training continues, your brain learns how to work more smoothly. Think of our software as a dance instructor and your brain, the student. The instructor makes corrections as you progress through dance moves and step by step, you’ve learned a new skill. Like a human instructor, our software ‘coaches’ your brain to perform better with each session. The difﬁculty level automatically increases and your brain ﬁtness (i.e. stress response and mental stability) naturally improves. Here’s a short VIDEO
