Neurotherapy is the process of teaching the brain to correct specific brain wave patterns that are causing us difficulty.
Neurotherapy (also referred to as ‘neurofeedback’ or ‘EEG biofeedback’) refers to an array of approaches which share a common goal of seeking to improve the functioning of an individual’s central nervous system and brain. Most typically, neurotherapy approaches use monitoring devices to provide moment-to-moment information to an individual on the state of their physiological functioning, in particular, their brainwaves. Because the electrical activity in the brain is responsible for the control of our attention, thoughts, behaviors and the regulation of all of our bodily systems, any changes in brain function can have a broad impact.
Most researchers believe that this training results in the establishment of new connections or the strengthening of existing connections in the relevant brain pathways.
The BAND Center uses a qEEG – based neurotherpay approach, where an initial assessment involving a brain map, called a Quantitative Electroencephalography (qEEG) actually lets us see what specific brainwave patterns which may cause certain disorders. Neurotherapy allows us to train the brain to correct the patterns and strengthening these pattern to develop better self-regulation.
