What Is Neurofeedback?
If you’re not familiar with neurofeedback, you’re not alone. However, it’s definitely a treatment option you want to get familiar with ASAP! Neurofeedback is a non-invasive treatment option that can be used to treat symptoms of conditions that range from autism to PTSD and just about everything in between. It works by identifying neural pathways that are over- or under-performing and leveraging positive feedback to discourage the negative reactions to various stimuli that are related to your symptoms. This sounds complicated so the idea of neurofeedback at home doesn’t even cross most peoples’ minds. It is available, though, and it does work!
How Does Neurofeedback At Home Work?
If you’re interested in neurofeedback at home, our clinicians can help you get started with a live consultation. This will guide the development of a 100% customized training plan that your neurofeedback will be based on. All of your neurofeedback at home will be managed through an app. At NeurOptimize, we use Myndlift, which is equipped with tons of different games that leverage the positive feedback that the neurofeedback is built on.
The Myndlift app is connected to the Muse EEG headband which measures your brain activity and communicates with the app system. An external EEG electrode also connects to the headband to provide real-time measurements from any location on the brain. This information will all feed into the ongoing personalization of your neurofeedback at home.
While wearing the headband, you’ll play games or watch videos. The real-time measurements of your brain waves will indicate when changes need to be made in the training process so you can get the most from your neurofeedback experience.
Mobile Neurofeedback Is Supported By A Remote Coach
Just because you’re able to do neurofeedback at home doesn’t mean you have to do it alone. You’ll have live consultations with a trained neurofeedback clinician to walk you through the process and offer any supporting services you may need to reach your long term goals.
