There are several benefits of neurofeedback training, both for the brain and body, including stress reduction, improvement of sleep patterns, better focus, heightened mental clarity, and enhanced cognitive performance. Our Grey Matters specialists and clients have used neurofeedback to address physical, emotional, and cognitive disturbances with great success. These fall into a few general categories:
- Physical, Cognitive, and Emotional Challenges
When stress is reduced, people experience a happier, healthier version of themselves. Adults and children who have used Grey Matters neurofeedback have reported reduced negative symptoms typically associated with conditions such as depression, anxiety, PTSD, ADD/ADHD, migraines, concussion trauma, and other physical and neurological issues.
- General Wellness
Neurofeedback encourages an overall positive mental outlook and a deeper understanding of the mind/body connection. For those looking to enhance their daily health and wellness, neurofeedback training can be an excellent supplement to a healthy diet and exercise routine, helping patients achieve mindfulness-based stress reduction.
- Peak Performance
Many professional athletes use neurofeedback to provide that much needed mental edge which often results in gold medals and championships. When competitors are separated by 100ths of a second, the improved mental focus and physical performance neurofeedback provides can mean all the difference between winning and losing. The good news is you don’t have to be a pro athlete to enjoy the benefits of neurofeedback. If you simply want to improve mental performance and develop your attention and focusing skills, neurofeedback treatment may be the right choice for you.
- Improved Academic Performance
Because it helps improve concentration and increase focus, students often use neurofeedback as an important tool to improve their performance in school. Unlike so-called “smart drugs” or neuro-enhancing pharmaceuticals, neurofeedback is 100% drug-free and has no known neurofeedback side effects (apart from improving your sleep!). Neurotherapy is one of the greatest ways to improve memory and concentration and can be a great tool to help train your mind to focus.
