Neurofeedback in Santa Rosa, CA ~ Sonoma County
"When we provide feedback to the brain we are, essentially, providing it with a mirror of its own function and 'inviting' it to make more of some frequencies and less of others. In neurofeedback, we seem to be nudging the brain to set up new oscillatory patterns that enhance both its natural complexity and its inherent and necessary bias toward self-regulation. In effect, we may be freeing up innate but 'stuck' oscillatory properties in the brain and allowing new ones to propagate."
-Sebern Fisher, MA
Neurofeedback training has been used therapeutically since the late 1960's for problems associated with the central nervous system.
Brain research has shown that when the brain is dysregulated without restoration to healthy functioning, it adopts the maladaptive pattern as “normal” and does not attempt to correct it. Many psychological and physical symptoms are associated with these stuck patterns of overactive, underactive, or disturbed brain wave activity. Neurofeedback works to train the brain out of these stuck cycles into a more flexible state. We offer two of the most cutting edge forms of neurofeedback:
HPN is a highly effective form of neurofeedback that trains the brain out of conscious awareness by offering it direct feedback via an impreceptible signal. Clients relax during the session and usually notice immedate relief that, over a series of sessions, becomes lasting change.
Neuroptimal® Neurofeedback is a cutting edge form of EEG-biofeedback that provides true, "real-time" feedback to the brain at a rate of 256 times per second via audio feedback. Clients note profound feelings of relaxation and clarity after sessions that become the norm after a series of sessions.
