Neurofeedback Helps Reshape Brainwave Activity in a Positive Way!
The Brevard Brain Training Center uses Neurofeedback, Nutrition, Audio Visual Entrainment and Wellness Coaching to help our patients (children and adults) recover from issues and symptoms associated with brain problems.
A drugless approach to helping individuals achieve their maximum potential through enhanced brain fitness, neurofeedback can help reduce or eliminate a broad range of symptoms including: anxiety, stress reactions, depression, sleep problems, headaches and migraines, chronic pain, compulsive behavior, mood swings, stroke, traumatic brain injury, seizures, autism, attention deficits and many other dysfunctional states that affect physical and emotional well-being.
Dr. Steve Cagen clinical director of Brevard Brain Training discovered Neurofeedback in 2009 while searching for new ways to help his daughter recover from a severe traumatic brain injury. After seeing amazing results which far surpassed medical opinion he founded the the Training Center in 2011 fully embracing its potential as an effective, drugless therapy for brain regulation.
Neurofeedback is brain exercise. We let your brain see its own activity through a video display driven by your brain waves. This allows your brain to improve its own self-regulation and ability to function over time. Neurofeedback is also called EEG biofeedback. EEG refers to Electroencephalogram, the term used for recordings of brain wave activity.
Neurofeedback is training in self-regulation. Good self-regulation is necessary for optimal brain function. Self-regulation training enhances the function of the central nervous system and thereby improves mental performance, emotional control and physiological stability.
With neurofeedback we target bioelectrical functioning of the brain which is actually a more important issue that the “chemical imbalance” that is often talked about. We are concerned with the brain’s internal regulatory networks. When we train the brain towards better function, the need for medication often diminished or falls away. Neurofeedback is somewhat like putting the brain on a stair stepper to exercise certain regulatory functions continuously. This is helpful with a wide variety of functional deficits.
Individuals of any age can benefit from EEG training. Neurofeedback can help a variety of childhood problems including bedwetting, nightmares, attention deficits and other forms of disruptive and disturbing behaviors. Neurofeedback can assist adolescents who struggle with anxiety and depression or drug and alcohol abuse.
Neurofeedback can help anyone maintain good brain function as they age. Peak performers also use EEG training to enhance their abilities in sports, business and the arts.
