What is Neurofeedback?

As early as the 1960s, it was shown that people could modify their brains’ performances through what is now referred to as neurofeedback – a form of biofeedback training that uses the electroencephalogram (EEG) or “brain waves” as the signal to control feedback. Paste is used to hold sensors to specific sites on the client’s scalp. The sensors transmit the brainwaves to a computer which converts the EEG into a feedback signal.

In some systems, the signal is in the form a video game or a movie. Other programs use more audio or vibratory feedback. In the LENS, the feedback is in the form of an electromagnet pulse timed to the dominant frequency in the EEG. All forms are effective to some degree, depending on the individual and the symptoms being addressed. Kayle Sandberg-Lewis has trained in a variety of neurofeedback methods.

What Conditions May Respond to Neurofeedback?

The breadth of responses credited to neurofeedback has been impressive. It has been observed that after brain wave training, many of the following diagnoses have greatly diminished or resolved entirely.
  • Addictions*
  • Anger/rage
  • Anxiety
  • Chronic fatigue
  • Chronic pain, including migraines
  • Depression
  • Hypertension
  • Obsessive Compulsive Syndrome
  • Post Traumatic Stress Disorder
  • Sleep disturbances
  • Tourette’s Syndrome
  • The many effects of Traumatic Brain Injury
