Neurofeedback is a non-invasive and painless way to exercise or train specific areas of your brain. It is most commonly used to assist with conditions like concussion, PTSD, ADHD and improving general brain activity. Neurofeedback is an emerging field of therapy, meaning researchers are still learning how it can best be used. You can review a comprehensive list of the available research on the International Society for Neuroregulation and Research website. Our multi-disciplinary team may assist with depression, anxiety, chronic fatigue, memory problems, PTSD, chronic pain, developmental delays and fibromyalgia, among other conditions.
What type of Neurofeedback?
Our practitioners use 19-channel LORETA z-score neurofeedback. Using 2 or 4-channel neurofeedback, only enables a limited number of brain areas to be targeted simultaneously. However, with 19-channels we can target whole brain networks providing a unique training opportunity. Consequently, we can monitor and train multiple brain areas at once.
Our neurofeedback therapists are guided by your symptoms and quantitative electroencephalography (qEEG). We take into account your goals, as well as the objective analysis of brain activity. Through the qEEG analysis, we can look beyond your outward symptoms and observe any underlying dysregulated brain activity. We also use qEEG as an outcome measure to measure changes after therapy.
Is Neurofeedback right for me?
As this is still an emerging field of therapy, you might be unsure if this is right for you. Our practitioners at Synaptic Health will assess your needs and advise whether neurofeedback is appropriate for you. We may recommend that you do neurofeedback alongside other therapies, or we may suggest a more suitable therapy option for you.
