What is Neurofeedback?

Neurofeedback is a non-medication, non-invasive way of training your brain and improving your life.

Neurofeedback (NFB) heals the brain, while psychotherapy heals the mind. Pinnacle Mental Wellness Group uses neurofeedback and psychotherapy together to create lasting change and recovery.

NFB has been gaining momentum as a non-addictive alternative to pharmaceutical interventions since the 1960s, . The American Academy of Pediatrics recognizes NFB as a level one evidenced-based practice in the treatment of ADHD.

While neurofeedback may not solve all your problems, it can help stabilize your brain so you can do the recovery work necessary for lasting change.

What Happens in a Neurofeedback Session?

Neurofeedback is a 100% non-invasive, drug-free, brain training system that helps the central nervous system make the best use of your brain’s natural resources. Here’s how an NFB session at Pinnacle Wellness works:

  • A licensed clinician completes a thorough assessment, and may have you fill out a survey listing any complaints or challenges that are causing disruption in your life.
  • You will be seated in a quiet space, in a comfortable, reclining chair. A highly trained technician then attaches special sensors to your head that feed your brain wave patterns into our advanced neurofeedback system.
  • The system software makes adjustments to what you are seeing on the screen, hearing from the speakers and feeling from the tactile sensor you will be holding.
  • The technician gently coaches you through the process until your brain takes over the training process on its own.

The brain’s ability to learn something so intricate so quickly is nothing short of miraculous! A neurofeedback training session typically lasts about 30 minutes.

We are not shocking the brain, and we are not manipulating the brain. NFB simply reinforces your own brain waves and brain wave patterns when the brain waves function in an optimal fashion.

How Can Neurofeedback Benefit You?

When your brain is out of balance, it can become over-stimulated when it is supposed to be calm and under-stimulated when it is supposed to be attentive.

NFB retrains your brain to function optimally, the way it was designed. Positive results in numerous case studies and with our patients have shown that natural neurofeedback treatments can help patients successfully deal with:

Most of all, NFB helps you operate at your personal peak performance.
