How Our Process Works
BrainZone Neurofeedback uses a multifaceted approach to helping our clients achieve optimal brain performance. We achieve this optimization by incorporating a three-prong approach (as shown below).
Our potential clients are invited into our offices to discuss the symptoms that are ailing them. We also give the client a brief anatomy of the brain and the electrical signals that it produces. In many cases, these electrical signals, or Brain Waves (alpha, beta, delta, theta, etc.), are out of balance. We how Neurofeedback aims to “re-set” or “balance” the brain, therefore alleviating many mental health disorders.
Next, the client is given a hands-on demonstration of the Neurofeedback equipment, where they actually take part in the Neurofeedback experience. This part of our approach enables clients to see and feel the relaxing experience Neurofeedback has to offer. It also allows us to gather information that their brain is producing.
Here we review the information gathered during the “Trail Run” and explain our findings to the client. Based on the EEG, we can determine which brainwaves may be over or under stimulated, whereby causing a disorder.
We also have a chance to explain how the brain regulates itself back to equilibrium. This balance is achieved through repeated neurofeedback sessions.
Neurofeedback Treatment Sessions
Based on a clients Consultation and Evaluation, we then set up a schedule of 15-20 Neurofeedback sessions. These are usually done on a weekly basis. We understand that our clients often lead busy lives and have hectic schedules. We aim to work with our clients to make these sessions as convenient as possible.
The sessions themselves usually last 1 hour from start to finish. This includes a brief discussion as to how the client is doing, followed by the neurofeedback training session itself and finally an analysis of the data produced and the progress the individual is making.
The neurofeedback portion of the appointments is a relaxing 30-35 minutes of reclining in a comfortable chair, listening to soft meditative music, watching a monitor with various images, all while data is gathered from the small sensors placed on one’s head.
The number of sessions can vary depending on the client’s own mental health issues. However, research has shown that the figure of 15-20 will significantly reduce the symptoms that a client choose to undertake neurofeedback as a means to achieving mental health wellness.
