Training your Brain for Optimal Health with Neurofeedback
At The Catalyst Center, we offer Neurofeedback brain training (aka EEG biofeedback). This is a cutting edge training program that plays an important role in improving your brain’s ability to regulate itself. Why would regulating your brain be important? Many mental health challenges have a close association with some form of dysregulation in the brain and body which can contribute to symptoms such as unhealthy thinking patterns or emotional distress. If we can improve our brain’s own ability to self-regulate, we can gain better control over our emotional and behavioral responses to events, relationships, or circumstances. Neurofeedback is one method of helping your brain learn how to regulate more effectively, and this can actually enhance other forms of therapy you might be accessing. The system we use at The Catalyst Center is called NeurOptimal, and uses a nonlinear dynamical approach to training the brain to function as well as it possibly can. You can find more details on our Neurofeedback page. If you are intrigued by the unique benefits Neurofeedback might have to offer, please check out the links below to several informational videos created by the Lake Erie Brain Performance Institue that will share more about how a nonlinear dynamical approach works and what is involved throughout the process of training.
Training Your Brain to Be Flexible and Resilient – Introduction to Neuroptimal Neurofeedback
In this video, you will get a feel for the basic ideas behind NeurOptimal Neurofeedback, and how it is similar and different from traditional approaches to Neurofeedback.
What is a session of Neuroptimal Neurofeedback like?
Here is a helpful video walking you through what a session of NeurOptimal Neurofeedback is like. Although this video describes the process at the Lake Erie Brain Performance Institute which is unique to their practice, we follow similar steps during our training sessions.
What kind of results can you expect with Neuroptimal Neurofeedback?
This is a great introduction to the impressive results researchers are seeing with NeurOptimal Neurofeedback.
