So What is Neurofeedback, Exactly?
Neurofeedback (AKA neurobiofeedback or neurotherapy), comprises a biofeedback system which registers displays of brain activity in real-time. This is usually in the form of electroencephalography .
The therapist follows the patient’s brain activity, and will program the computer to cease, if an abnormal number of slow or rapid brain waves are showing; or if the waves are unsettled, and quickly change from fast to slow .
When this practise is continually repeated over many sessions, it generally yields a more normal brain wave rhythm. “Researchers who endorse the technique say they don’t know exactly how it works but they say the changes in brain waves result in improved ability to focus and relax”.
A Message From the Founder
Rhodes Levin stated: “I am thrilled to expand my facility and officially open The Missing Peace Center for the Brain. We wanted to offer patients a facility that focuses solely on Neurofeedback. This way, we can pinpoint the areas of the brain associated with these debilitating ailments and exponentially accelerate the treatment process”.
She notes: “In a nutshell, Neurofeedback is your brain’s ability to look at itself in the mirror so it can begin to self-repair. As soon as your brain is able to see itself, it will know exactly what to do and will begin the process of healing”.
