qEEG Neurofeedback

Neurofeedback is a form of therapy that helps individuals regulate brain activity. It uses real-time electrical monitoring of brainwaves through sensors placed on the scalp (EEG). When the brain shows desired patterns, such as the desired frequencies, the individual receives positive feedback, such as a sound or visual cue, reinforcing the brain to replicate those patterns, aiding in self-regulation and improvement of various conditions. The brain works using different frequencies which correspond to different states of brain activity.

  • Delta waves (0.1-4 Hz): Associated with deep sleep and healing.

  • Theta waves (4-8 Hz): Linked to relaxation, creativity, and meditation.

  • Alpha waves (8-13 Hz): Present during a relaxed and calm state, often seen when closing the eyes or meditating.

  • Beta waves (13-30 Hz): Associated with alertness, focus, and active thinking.

  • Gamma waves (30+Hz): Linked to higher cognitive processing, perception, and problem-solving.

By recognizing and targeting these specific frequencies, neurofeedback encourages the desired brainwave patterns, helping individuals achieve improved mental states or address various neurological conditions.


Neurofeedback has shown potential benefits in addressing various conditions, including:

  • ADHD (Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder)

  • Anxiety disorders

  • Autism spectrum disorder (ASD)

  • Depression

  • Insomnia

  • PTSD (Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder)

  • Migraines/headaches

  • Cognitive issues or difficulties in concentration and focus

  • Traumatic brain injuries (TBI)

  • Substance abuse disorders

  • Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD)

  • Learning disabilities

  • Bipolar disorder

  • Tourette syndrome

  • Stroke recovery

  • Epilepsy/seizure disorders

  • Fibromyalgia

  • Chronic pain disorders

  • Emotional regulation

  • Enhancing peak performance in sports, work, academics, or creative pursuits.

How It Works

Neurofeedback operates on the principles of brain plasticity and operant conditioning, influencing brain activity through real-time monitoring and feedback.

  1. Operant Conditioning: The brain learns to modify its own activity in response to feedback. When the brain produces desired patterns or frequencies (detected by EEG or qEEG), the individual receives positive feedback, like a sound or visual cue. This reinforces the brain to replicate those patterns, encouraging self-regulation.

  2. Brain Plasticity: The brain has a remarkable ability to reorganize and adapt, known as neuroplasticity. Through consistent neurofeedback sessions, the brain can rewire neural connections, forming new pathways and adjusting its activity to more optimal patterns. Our offices specializes in promoting neuroplasticity in the nervous system to treat conditions and assist in functional recovery.

  3. Self-Regulation: By learning to modulate specific brainwave frequencies associated with various mental states (such as relaxation or focus), individuals undergoing neurofeedback can enhance their ability to self-regulate these states outside of sessions. This self-regulation can translate into improved cognitive function, emotional regulation, and better management of various conditions.

  4. Targeted Training: Neurofeedback targets specific areas or frequencies of the brain associated with certain conditions. For instance, in ADHD, it may aim to increase Low-beta waves related to attention and focus or decrease theta waves in the frontal lobe which are associated with daydreaming or distractibility.

  5. Functional Changes: Over time, as the brain learns from the feedback provided during neurofeedback sessions, functional changes occur. These changes may lead to symptom reduction or improvements in cognitive abilities, mood regulation, attention span, and overall mental well-being.
