Exercising The Brain

Neurofeedback is essentially a form of biofeedback, which is a proven, safe and effective alternative to encourage better learning, memory, focus, attention span and performance for the treatment of conditions such as ADHD, autism, learning disabilities, epilepsy, depression, stress and more.

It varies between individuals. Some report progress in just 10 sessions while others may require 20 to 40 sessions to see visible improvements. Neurofeedback is a learning process and several factors affect the outcome. One of them is the motivation of the trainee. Like all training programs, neurofeedback requires effort on the part of the trainee to try to change his/her brainwaves. Usually, we see those who put in effort (to score points) tend to improve faster compared with those who are not. In addition to effort, biochemistry plays a crucial role in their progress. Those with high toxic metal accumulation in the body, nutritional imbalances and food allergies tends to take longer time to respond to this training. This is why we do a range of laboratory tests to determine if there is a need to address their biochemistry so that they will respond faster to neurofeedback.

Yes. During the brain exercise one learns how to regulate his/her brainwaves. Over time, once the person starts to internalize the learning process, he/she will be able to produce the desirable brainwave patterns independently in one’s daily activities, without needing any cues from the Neurofeedback system. Testimonies from parents also indicate this.

Yes. Many long term studies have been done showing that the benefits from neurofeedback are maintained. It is a skill that is learnt, like cycling and swimming. Once internalized, a person will be able to self regulate his/her mental function. This skill to self regulate is the key to better performance.

We would recommend at least two to three sessions per week for initial stage of training. Training can gradually reduce to once or twice a week when one starts to internalize this learning process and can better control his/her brainwaves. With our Home Training Program, training can be done more frequently (say 5 to 7 session per week) at the comfort of one’s home and at much lower costs for long term solution. Similar to physical exercise, regular training will produce a better effect.

Neurofeedback is safe and non-invasive method. It is also a non-drug alternative for many conditions such as Attention Deficit Disorder or ADD. As it is a non-drug based intervention, there are no side-effects.

Yes, we do work with children as young as three years old. To get them engaged, we use their favorite video or music as feedback. Even toddlers as young as 18 months can be trained. Early intervention is always preferred for developmental problems. Our therapists are also trained to handle young children and to entice them to engage on the neurofeedback training.
