Neurofeedback and Biofeedback
Neurofeedback measures brain activity, which can help to control Central Nervous System activity. It is a non-invasive, psychotherapeutic and behavioral technique that provides an on-screen illustration of the patient’s mind at work. This yields a map that helps our clinical team produce an advanced assessment of behavior type allowing us to enhance individual treatment.
Neurofeedback often alleviates or reduces symptoms of:

Neurofeedback is training in self-regulation.
Biofeedback teaches relaxation and self-control through guided computer training and feedback oriented video games.
