What is Neurofeedback?
Brain Paint is a neurofeedback workout for your brain with lasting cumulative results. Brainwaves assist in conveying information affecting our emotions, physical movement, concentration, and creative expression. When our brainwaves are not working properly, we experience that in a multitude of ways, including depression, anxiety, insomnia, and so on. At Awakenings Neurofeedback Clinic, we believe that neurofeedback creates part of the foundation necessary to heal and recovery. This scientifically proven non-invasive, FDA approved treatment modality helps stabilize client’s brainwaves, which reduces the fight-or-flight reaction that often triggers a relapse into old behaviors. Individuals experience clarity that improves compliance in treatment programs, decreases relapse rates, and increases continued 12-step participation long after treatment ends.
Awakenings Neurofeedback Clinic aims to facilitate the healing of individual’s brains. We want to extend this alternative treatment to the community. Our clinic offers an additional treatment option for individuals struggling with eating disorders, mood disorders, addictions, anxiety, depression, traumatic brain injuries, seizures, stroke, post traumatic stress disorder, autism spectrum disorder, emotional regulation, cognitive abilities, sleep problems, headaches, migraines, stress reactions, mood swings, and PMS. Neurofeedback can also help maintain healthy brain functioning in an individual’s aging process.
Can Neurofeedback Help?
Anyone under stress has a difficult time learning. Alcoholism, drug addiction, or mental health conditions cause an immense amount of stress, which creates an environment that reduces the chance of successfully learning and implementing the tools of recovery.
Neurofeedback is a proven brain re-training method that facilitates stress reduction while boosting the brain’s ability to learn and integrate new information. It does this by “educating” the brain to be more adaptive and flexible.
Clients experience the effects of neurofeedback directly in treatment and throughout every aspect of their lives. Their stress level is reduced significantly; therefore, typical life stressors become manageable.
How Neurofeedback Works
Also known as EEG Biofeedback, Neurofeedback utilizes the human biological mechanisms of self-regulation and homeostasis. Neurofeedback helps change the “reactive” brain into a better-muscled “interactive” brain-a calmer, less reactive state that will serve each individual client through all stressful situations in life.
