Absolutely. The sensors attached to your scalp are simply there to listen to the brain; there is no stimulation or signal transmitted by the equipment. The brain does all the real work, adapting in response to the feedback.
Studies have repeatedly shown Neurofeeedback to be effective in a wide variety of clinical applications as well as for peak performance.
Clients can feel different after just the first session, although it will take several sessions for the new ways of working to be fully learned by the brain.
Just as different people learn at different rates, so do different brains, and some have more to learn than others.
Electrode sensors will be attached to your scalp to monitor your brain waves.
Feedback to your brain is provided through the use of video, audio and tasks. There is a choice of video games that you ‘control’ with your brain, from very simple ‘pong’ type games to car racing and jet ski games. You can also choose from a range of documentaries, TV shows or music videos, in fact any DVD you want to bring along or YouTube videos.
The video will fade in and out as the brain changes state. As you relax, the brain is able to ‘tune in’ to the feedback and adjust in response. This all happens subconsciously…Brain training does not focus on trying to change the conscious mind. Brain training changes the underlying patterns best without the “thinking” mind.
It is always advisable to check with your doctor if you are on medications.
