How Does Neurotherapy Work?
Neurotherapy assists the client in changing his or her brainwave architecture.
On a client’s first visit to the office, an in-depth intake session is completed. A brain map of 5 brain locations (generally used for ADD, ADHD, etc.) or 19 locations (generally used for closed head injury and stroke) is completed.
Brainwaves are measured using an electroencephalograph (EEG). Sensors from the EEG equipment are positioned on the ears and various points on the scalp (the sensors are non-invasive and painless).
From the amplitude and position of brainwave bands including Delta, Theta, Alpha, Sensory Motor Rhythm, Beta and High Frequency we are able to assess a client’s condition and develop a therapy schedule that will assist the client in regaining control and getting back on track with life.
As the center of operations for the body, the brain is a highly evolved organ. Capable of continuous learning and adapting to various situations the brain has shown itself capable of enhancing its performance when provided with pointers about what to change, modify or adjust.
For children, this often takes the form of computerized games which the child plays by changing brainwave activity. How is this accomplished? Simple! We let the child play a type of video game with hot air balloons or racing cheetahs. As the child produces the brainwaves desired, the child is rewarded with the movement of the balloons or by their cheetah win a race and thereby the desired brainwaves are reinforced! These changes in brainwave activity are fed back to the child using audio or visual cues from the computer. For adult clients, the feedback of brainwave functioning can be quite complex, although adults can play the computer games if they prefer! Using this and other similar methods, clients become skilled at altering their brainwave architecture.
