- What is NeuroIntegration Therapy?
- NeuroIntegration Therapy is a type of biofeedback. The body has a limited capacity to sense information coming from inside itself. However, if you monitor any biological process, amplify it, and feed it back to the brain, your brain can change it.
NeuroIntegration Therapy addresses problems of brain disregulation, which includes anxiety, depression, ADD/ADHD/OCD, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, head injuries, memory loss, migraines, PMS and sleep disorders. NeuroIntegration Therapy is training in self-regulation. Self-regulation is a necessary part of proper brain function. It is simply biofeedback applied directly to the brain.
- How is NeuroIntegration Therapy Helpful?
- By re-training abnormal brainwave patterns, we are assisting the brain to function better rather than curing a condition. A problem of disregulation is not a disease to be cured, however when disregulation is a problem, self regulation may improve or eliminate symptoms entirely. For example, a person with ADD may be able to train their brain to pay attention, so that condition will no longer be diagnosable.
The EEG NeuroIntegration system works like a mind mirror, showing you how your brain is functioning, and telling you if you are on the right track. The photic stimulation is guiding your brainwaves into a correct pattern while the music and visuals reward the brain for changing its own activity to more appropriate patterns. Eventually, the brainwave activity is “shaped” toward more desirable, more regulated performance.
- Could you explain more about brainwaves?
- How long does the training take?
- Sessions are usually one to three times per week, but each person is different. Some receive benefit almost immediately while others may need a series of sessions to stabilize their brainwave activity. The number of sessions depends on the type of problem, the age of the person, and many other factors. Typically ADD requires about 20-30 sessions. Application for alcoholism takes 30 to 40 sessions.
- How can I expect to feel after a session?
- Depending on what frequency is being trained, clients generally report feeling more relaxed and focused after their sessions.
- Will the training last, or is it temporary?
- The type of neurofeedback training we offer here is permanent. Neurofeedback helps to improve functions such as concentration, short-term memory, speech, motor skills, sleep, energy level, and emotional balance.
- Can neurofeedback help with ADD and ADHD?
- Recent research suggests that individuals with ADD/ADHD tend to have elevated theta brainwave activity and low levels of beta brainwave activity. Symptoms of ADD/ADHD are usually reduced when brainwave activity is changed. Neurofeedback is commonly used as an adjunct or alternative treatment to medication and behavior management.
