There are different therapies for physiological arousal control. It allows clients to identify which areas of the brain are not producing enough dopamine, epinephrine, norepinephrine, serotonin, and GABA (Gamma-aminobutyric acid) levels.

Once this is identified, feedback will be provided by the EEG machine to the client with filters in place to prevent them from consciously altering their brain waves. This allows for maximal effort on behalf of the client with heightened awareness.

The effects can last long after you’re done with treatment as your body adjusts itself back into optimal balance naturally over time. Neurofeedback therapy allows you to take greater responsibility for your mental well-being without relying on medications that pose detrimental risks.

Why Would You Use It?

The body uses electrical signals to communicate information between different parts of itself. The nerve cells in our body use this method to send messages back and forth throughout the system to move, think, sleep or react. There are many different reasons why our electric impulses are disrupted, leading to physical or emotional distress.

You may be a good candidate for NFB treatment if you have been diagnosed with one or more of the following conditions.

● Anxiety Disorder
● Autism Spectrum Disorder
● Bipolar Disorder
● Borderline Personality Disorder
● Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
● Depression

Where Can You Go?

There are many providers in your area. Make sure you do your research on NFB therapy before choosing one to avoid wasting your time and money. There are two types of providers:

2. Those without this certification.

These are just general guidelines. In case you want to learn about this therapy, consider doing detailed research from reliable websites.


What are Some Risks?

There are no known risks involved when undergoing neurofeedback treatment. Many clients experience temporary discomfort during their first treatment session, which is usually due to the intensity of the brain wave activity they are experiencing at that moment. The therapist can easily manage this through relaxation techniques.

The only thing you might experience is an increased sense of clarity, alertness, and productivity for between two and six months after the treatment depending on your bio-individuality.

Afterward, these benefits can last anywhere from three to six years without any additional treatments needed. These benefits allow you to take greater responsibility for your mental health without relying on medications that pose detrimental risks.
