True Vine Christian Services is introducing a new unique service. Neurofeedback therapy offers clients a remarkable and noninvasive means to harness control over their brains. This type of therapy works with standard sessions, but how does neurofeedback therapy work?
About Neurofeedback Training
Neurofeedback trains the brain, and through this training, clients learn to control their response to stress and stimuli.
Neurofeedback isn’t painful. Clients could discover that they feel reinvigorated after a neurofeedback session. Others might find that they have more clarity and improved cognitive performance. Each individual could have a uniquely positive experience.
Neurofeedback Machines Guide the Therapy
The machines used in neurofeedback therapy sessions are EEG (electroencephalogram) machines; these machines measure brainwaves. To monitor and measure this data, therapy clinician Dr. John Kelley attaches small sensor wires to the client's face and forehead.
Clients then participate in activities, and Dr. Kelley watches the signals from the brain via the EEG. These activities help teach clients about their brain’s response to different scenarios.
Positive responses to stimuli or activities are rewarding; the brain works best when relaxed and engaged. Some conditions like ADHD, anxiety, and depression result in altered responses from the brain. Through neurofeedback exercises and training, clients identify the activities and exercises that allow their brain to enter an ideal state (as shown via EEG). Each client works to identify this state and learn how to find it naturally.
What is Neurofeedback Used For?
It’s important to understand that neurofeedback therapy doesn’t purport to cure or treat any specific condition. Instead, this therapy helps clients learn how to manage their brain’s responses to different stressors, stimuli, and situations.
The True Vine Neurofeedback Session
True Vine Christian Services sessions focus on teaching clients how to positively impact their cognitive ability. Activities delve into four areas: Eyes Open, Eyes Closed, Reading, and Basic Math. Results are calculated for each area and assessed per the Sterman-Kaiser Imaging Laboratory (SKIL) database.
