What is neurofeedback?

Neurofeedback, also known as “brain feedback” is a non-invasive method of direct brain functioning training. It is a specific type of biofeedback and is also known as “EEG Biofeedback.” It uses sensors placed on the patient’s scalp to record the EEG (brainwaves) and control auditory, visual, and tactile feedback which allows learning and self-regulation to take place.

What is biofeedback?

Biofeedback is built on the concept of “mind over matter.” The idea is that, with proper techniques, you can change your health by being mindful of how your body responds to stressors and other stimuli. Biofeedback is a non-pharmaceutical method of treatment in which patients are trained to control their own physiology in order to improve physical and psychological health.
