The world of mental health services has made leaps and bounds in recent decades in regard to equal access and scientific research. While the public is gaining an understanding of the importance of mental health, there are still very few ways in which most patients receive therapy services. Talk therapies and psychiatric medications are the two primary modes of treatment that most receive. However, there are many different technologies available that can provide the same long-term results in a faster and healthier manner.
One such therapy is neurotherapy, or neurofeedback therapy. Neurofeedback is a type of biofeedback, which uses quantitative brain information to better understand, and therefore alter maladaptive behavior patterns in the brain. By understanding and altering the way the brain functions through noninvasive therapies, you can experience relief of symptoms faster than talk therapy services alone can achieve.
Neurotherapy service includes visual and auditory stimulation to encourage the brain to produce improved brain patterns to reduce maladaptive outcomes. With the use of visual games, music, and other sensory inputs, you can “retrain” your brain to respond to stimuli in desirable ways. Typically brain mapping, or QEEG, is used in tandem with neurotherapy services to ensure that proper results are achieved and it allows customization to your brain and the specific symptoms you would like to change.
Neurofeedback targets your symptoms at their source. When you can rewire the brain to handle stressors, you can better function mentally and emotionally in situations where you would typically struggle with mental health symptoms. Your therapist will guide you through this process, ensuring your mental and emotional safety is a top priority.
You may be interested in neurotherapy services if you:
- Do not want to use prescription medications for symptoms because of side effects or ineffectiveness
- Have not had success with traditional therapy approaches
- Would like therapy treatments to accelerate your talk therapy progress
Neurotherapy can be used to treat mental disorders such as PTSD, anxiety, depression, ADD/ADHD, insomnia, and many others. The treatment options are targeted, noninvasive, and effective.
