At Shiloh, we believe that real success in improving central nervous system functions comes from using multiple, holistic, brain improvement modalities that facilitate and enhance each other. This is why we apply Neurofeedback in combination with other modalities to improve cognition, reduce the symptoms of CNS disorders and enhance learning.
Our training programs at Shiloh Learning Centre are specifically designed to improve the central nervous system and the overall health of an individual by treating the body as a whole system with its individual parts working together as an integral unit.
In order to do this we employ the following holistic modalities in our training system:
Shiloh Learning Centre is always searching for new or different cutting edge modalities that prove to be even more effective in improving the central nervous system.
Our clients’ ages and abilities range from early childhood to seniors and from cognitively impaired to gifted individuals. Our training system is readily adaptable to young or old and can be equally beneficial to different levels of intellect and ability.
For example, the Low Energy Neurofeedback System (LENS) which we use in our office has been successfully used on children as young as 18 months and on many seniors as well.
Likewise, the other training modalities we employ are very versatile and can be applied to most ages and levels of ability. So, no matter what a person’s age or ability (18 months or older) we can design a training plan to improve their cognition, reduce symptoms of central nervous system disorders, and work toward improving their overall mental and physical health.
We also offer special needs and regular academic tutoring at Shiloh Learning Centre in most academic subjects, using accelerated learning techniques for all grades K-12.
We highly recommend doing tutoring in conjunction with neurofeedback and sensory integration training because if they are both done properly and in the right sequences they can greatly enhance each other and improve brain functions.
However, they may be purchased separately if desired.
The overall goals of Neurofeedback:
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:
It has been known to help many brain disorders such as:
It 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.

Neurofeedback (Bio-Feedback or Brain Training) is an EEG/computer system that literally retrains the brain to function much better.
If you, a loved one, or someone under your care is suffering because their brain is not working properly, or because they are in pain, or overwhelmed with emotional issues, then you may be surprised or even amazed at the benefits of Neurofeedback!
Neurofeedback is a cutting edge technology and offers hope for many devastating brain disorders such as:
Neurofeedback is a brainwave system certified by the FDA that provides non-invasive feedback to the brain. This is achieved by using a computer program that reads records and analyzes brain waves (patterns) via small sensors placed on the scalp.
Neurofeedback is sort of like properly retiming an internal combustion engine whose cylinders are not firing at the proper time. When this occurs the engine loses power and can even be damaged because the cylinders are not working in harmony to turn the crankshaft and can actually work against each other.
Similarly, when brain cells are not firing properly and brain systems are not in harmony, the brain loses power and develops inefficient and damaging patterns. These faulty patterns can be locked in (suppressed) and become permanent, unless the brain is retrained to release these blockages and adopt new patterns so that it can function at maximum power and efficiency.
There is much about the human brain that is unknown and may never be known; but what we do know from valid and recent scientific research is that the brain can in many cases be improved with new life experiences and/or brain training such as Neurofeedback.
