The process of neurofeedback is like putting your brain in front of a mirror! The information from your brain study that is applied to your neurofeedback treatment lets your brain change the underlying CAUSE of what has been making you do, feel, and think as you have been. This is real recovery. Recovery at the root of the cause. Whether your demons are chemical, mental, emotional, or spiritual, you have been experiencing all and any of them through your brain! When your brain becomes balanced, so do your thoughts, feelings, and needs. Your future changes!
Now you can have the advantage of understanding exactly how your brain has been causing your struggles. And the good news is that your brain map will show what needs to be done to resolve them! Let the science of neurotherapy give you the life you want by helping your brain behave.
Neurofeedback is not a cure-all. It is not a trick. It is a science based on decades of experimental evidence, that is now being confirmed in another way by fMIR studies. Neurofeedback takes advantage of neuroplasticity to help you address imbalances in your brain that cause imbalances in your thought and behavior.
All neurofeedback is not alike. Many neurofeedback providers are "captive" to a type of equipment, and have been "trained" by the equipment provider. This practice provides multiple options, depending on the outcome of your brain study map (qEEG study). The map creates a recipe for treatment of those centers of the brain that are overactive or under active. There are two kinds of nerves in your brain, and each works best with a different frequency range of neurofeedback. We work with both systems for a more complete resolution.
Heart Rate Variability biofeedback Heart Rate Variability (HRV), as monitored from an individual’s heart rhythm, is the most powerful indicator of cardiovascular health.. HRV is also altered in a number of non-cardiac diseases, including brain damage, depression, diabetes, diabetic neuropathy, end-stage renal disease, epilepsy, Guillain-Barré syndrome, schizophrenia, and uremic neuropathy. Many of these diseases carry an increased risk of sudden cardiac death (heart attack or myocardial infarction). Therefore, monitoring HRV has been considered for the prevention of sudden cardiac death in these conditions. The renowned 1994 Framingham Heart Study identified increased Heart Rate Variability (HRV) as the only common factor that was found in all healthy individuals and it is therefore considered a significant indicator of overall health..
Scientific and clinical studies have established the usefulness of HRV measures in almost all branches of medicine. HRV is medically recognized indicator of cardiac condition, fitness, stress levels, aging, health risk levels, chronic disease condition, and more. HRV biofeedback training can result in enhanced health and wellness, as well as an increase in attention, concentration and short term/working memory.
When breathing and heart rate rise and fall together, this is called coherence. HRV coherence is a scientifically recognized physiological state which can be learned. it is known to improve the way a person acts in and reacts to life's events. HRV biofeedback is used to reduce cardiovascular and kidney health risk, anxiety disorders, depression, grief, and concentration problems, as well as to enhance natural sleep cycles, the experience of mindful or transcendent states, and even to improve creative performance,
Trauma hypnotherapy can reorganize reactions to past events so that what happens now no longer acts as a trigger for emotional loss of control. It has been shown on fMRI that hypnosis rewires the brain. This is why the effects can be lasting in the same way as those of neurofeedback and biofeedback. Your brain learns a new way to experience its own beliefs, meanings, and thoughts - a way that restores to you a sense of well-being in the world. You can, by shifting the way your mind has organized meaning, experience greater possibilities in your life.
