Benefits of Neurofeedback

The overall goals of Neurofeedback:

  • Significantly improve the functionality of the entire Central Nervous System;
  • Reduce or eliminate crippling symptoms of CNS disorders;
  • Increase the flexibility, clarity, focus and efficiency of the brain.

It accomplishes all this by using various scientific protocols to train the brain to discard its unhealthy patterns that can and do cause many devastating disorders.

Neurofeedback then retrains the brain to adopt new, healthier patterns that allow the brain to function much better, and the person to become more of who they really are.

Neurofeedback has the potential to benefit in the following areas:

  • Cognitive Functioning
  • Memory
  • Attention
  • Concentration
  • Learning
  • Creativity
  • Reading
  • Organizing and sequencing
  • Motivation-initiating and completing activities
  • Motor Skills-coordination
  • Balance and grace
  • Recovery from paralysis
  • Mood Improvement-anxiety, depression, irritability and explosiveness
  • Sleep Regulation-improved night time sleep and increased daytime alertness
  • Brain Spiking-reduction in seizures and tic symptoms
  • Pain Management-reduction in migraines, fibromyalgia symptoms, restless leg syndrome and other body pains
  • Overall increase in energy, stamina and peak performance


It has been known to help many brain disorders such as:

  • TBI (traumatic brain injury)
  • Attention deficit disorder (ADD)
  • Attention deficit hyperactive disorder (ADHD)
  • Post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • Obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD)
  • Emotional and behavioural disorders (EBD)
  • Oppositional defiant disorder (ODD)
  • Seizures
  • Tics
  • Migraines
  • Autism spectrum disorders (ASD)
  • Learning disabilities
  • Impaired memory
  • Poor attention
  • Impaired focus
  • Bipolar disorder
  • Emotional trauma
  • Pain management
  • Chronic fatigue
  • Stroke recovery
  • Substance abuse recovery
  • Other (CNS) central nervous system disorders


Neurofeedback also has been used to enhance the peak performance of very demanding vocations such as professional musicians and athletes.

It has been traditionally thought that our brains were fully molded and changed little after reaching adulthood. However, recent neuroscience studies indicate that the human brain is in a “plastic” state and can change with life experience and training such as neurofeedback. Specifically, the brain is capable of rerouting through its trillions of connections in order to learn new information and to bypass damaged or suppressed areas.

In addition, studies indicate that some parts of the brain can even grow new brain cells and their connecting axons and dendrites if sufficiently challenged.  Retraining and challenging the brain in most cases improves brain abnormalities such as over-arousal, under-arousal, and instability. The real cause of the above abnormalities is the brains inability to control and regulate itself.

Neurofeedback is an excellent way to restore brain regulation and minimize abnormalities. Neurofeedback is becoming more popular as a naturopathic, non-invasive, non pharmaceutical training method to restore optimal brain function.
