We are committed to helping you balance your brainwaves.
Neurofeedback is a lasting solution that engages the brain's capacity for development through mental exercise. Training your brain can change your life.
Assessment is Simple
The first step before training is to be assessed.
When conducting an assessment, we take into account the symptoms that you would like to work on (i.e. problems focusing in school or work, problems sleeping, etc.) as well as the imbalances or irregularities in brainwave frequencies that we can observe using EEG biofeedback. Too much or too little of any brainwave in various locations in the brain can indicate problems and will usually correlate with the problematic symptoms that you observe in daily life.
In some cases, in order to get the most comprehensive picture possible, we will also use other forms of assessment such as a short Integrated Visual and Auditory continuous performance test (IVA) or Behavior Assessment System for Children. After considering all of this, we will discuss with you exactly what the problems are and how best to address them. Together we will agree on training goals.
Benefits of Neurofeedback
Studies show that neurofeedback training:
Neurofeedback is founded in applied neuroscience and evidence-based clinical practice. It is a constantly evolving field that integrates clinical expertise with the latest neurological research on behavioral and cognitive functions. Neurofeedback is a non-invasive alternative to medication or surgery and has long-lasting beneficial effects.
Heart Rate Variability
Our New Biofeedback Tool
Responsive Neurofeedback is now proud to offer an additional biofeedback tool that can help enhance neurofeedback training.
Heart rate variability (HRV) refers to the rhythmic time gap between heart beats that varies with respiration. At rest, a healthy individual has periodic variation that fluctuates as he or she breathes in and out. When inhaling, there is cardio-acceleration, and while exhaling, there is cardio-deceleration. This is natural and measurable.
For a stressed or fatigued individual, HRV will be significantly reduced. Using biofeedback sensors and software, a client can train his or her HRV and become more relaxed, more adaptable, more alert, and healthier. This is useful for regulation of attention, stress, anxiety, and emotions and, when used during neurofeedback, can help clients enhance their neurofeedback training.
