Biofeedback is a way of training specific body systems and functions; many of these would normally be out of awareness and or control. Targeting specific systems and helping to raise your awareness and control over them can be a very powerful tool, helping you to use your brain and body better and bring them back into balance.
Neurofeedback (or Neurotherapy or EEG Biofeedback), consists of computerized brain training designed to target specific brain functions. How it differs from other computer based brain training devices, is that you are hocked up to the computer whilst you are training so the computer is recording and interpreting you brain waves in real time, while you are training. This makes the feedback given to you extremely quick, accurate and produces better results.
Neurofeedback is one of the most significant advances in treating the brain made in the last 35 years, however very poorly understood and utilized, especially in Australia. In our experience all the major forms of neurofeedback can be very effective, even though they use slightly different technologies they operate from the same core principle: giving your nervous system information about what it is doing in real time.
At Transform YOUR Brain we were one of the first clinics in Melbourne to use this technology and the first in Melbourne to use zengars unique form of neurofeedback, Neuroptimal. This type of neurofeedback is the next generation, using dynamical feedback and more sophisticated software to streamline the process enabling quicker results.
The easiest way of understanding what neurofeedback does is thinking about it as exercise for the brain. Without a healthy and fit brain it is very difficult to live a healthy and productive life. For example we have had many clients who have done years of traditional talk therapy and have developed the knowledge needed to live a healthy and happy life, however lack the brain fitness to put these things into practice. Thus when you combine the powerful tools you can learn in counseling and psychotherapy with the brain fitness achieved from Neuroptimal neurofeedback you are much more capable of reaching your goals.
The Neuroptimal website also has a lot of useful information about this technology, www.zengar.com.
