What is Neurological Training?
NeuroIntegration Training is the same as neurofeedback, but with some enhancements. Our system uses Photic stimulation technology to improve the neurofeedback process. The glasses help stimulate the brain and trigger the system more accurately. This results in a better session and can increase results.Neurointegration Training and neurofeedback address problems of improper brain regulation, and helps your brain to regulate itself properly over time. Self-regulation is a necessary part of proper brain function.
How is Neurointegration Training Helpful?
Neurointegration training has one purpose: to change timing and activation patterns in the brain. It does not target any condition, but instead slowly guides your brain back to normal ranges, reconnecting the neural pathways that have been disconnected. The result is an improvement in brain regulation, which in turn impacts a variety of symptoms.
Could you explain more about brainwaves?
Your brain produces four primary types of brain waves: Beta, Alpha, Theta and Delta. Beta is primarily active during your awake state, which is the majority of your day. Alpha has to do with your subconscious, and is dominant during relaxed states when your eyes are closed but you are not asleep. Theta is present briefly during the periods before you fall asleep and before you fully wake up. Delta is primarily active when you are asleep.All of these brain waves are equally important to your health, and mental health disorders can be attributed to specific brain waves. For example, when you have brain irregularities caused by a head injury, your brain may have too much frontal theta or delta being produced when you are supposed to be awake and alert. By retraining these abnormal patterns in the affected areas, symptoms can be improved or eliminated.
How long does the training take?
We recommend 30 minutes of training, administered one to four times a week. Appointments can last up to an hour with our supplemental activities. Some can benefit almost immediately while others may need a series of sessions to stabilize their brainwave activity. The number of total sessions depends on the type of problem, the age of the person, and many other factors.
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. Sometimes, headaches or fatigue can occur. The brain is being worked in new ways, much like a muscle at the gym. This aside, effects aren't usually concerning. Alterations, however, will be made to your protocal to curb any unnecessary headaches or fatigue.
Will the training last, or is it temporary?
The type of neurofeedback training we offer here is very long-lasting. Neurofeedback helps to improve functions such as concentration, short-term memory, 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.
