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."

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 a state-of-the-art approach to neurofeedback training, called High Performance 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.
