5 Reasons Neurofeedback May Be Right for You

Neurofeedback is a type of biofeedback that monitors brain wave activity and retrains your brain to respond differently to stimuli. Think of it as a real-time feedback loop or a reward-based training system for your brain that’s medication- and pain-free.

Our skilled team at Total Health Solutions Medical Center in Milton, Georgia, offers neurofeedback to people who want to perform better at work, at school, or in their everyday lives.

Neurofeedback works by taking advantage of the brain’s ability to change through neuroplasticity. When we learn a new skill, the brain forms connections between nerve cells and different locations in the brain. As we keep performing a new skill, the brain gets more efficient at it.

So, when neurofeedback is used on brain wave patterns, it provides positive reinforcement for positive change. Considering neurofeedback? Here are five reasons why it may be right for you. 

1. Better sleep

We all know how important sleep is to our body’s restoration and overall health. When you can’t sleep, you may feel tired or have trouble concentrating or remembering things.

This could be related to a dysregulation of slow-moving delta brain waves. Some people don’t have enough of them at night or too many during the day.

2. Improved memory

We all have trouble remembering things from time to time, especially as we get older. But if it’s becoming a problem, neurofeedback may provide a boost. One study showed it’s helpful on verbal memory and some dimensions of visual memory.

3. Less anxiety

Anxiety is one of the most common mental health conditions in the United States. Some people with anxiety feel on edge. They may have extra fast-moving beta brain waves and not enough alpha waves, which help keep us calm.

4. Sharper focus and attention

If you have attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), you may have an excess of theta waves and a deficit of beta waves. Neurofeedback can help by bringing these back to optimum levels. Studies show it “should be considered as a viable treatment alternative.”

5. Greater relaxation

If you always feel wound up and have trouble relaxing, you may not have enough alpha or theta brain waves, which help us relax and feel calm. With neurofeedback, maybe you can finally sit down with that book you’ve been wanting to read or find a scenic spot and take in the view.
