Treatment at the brain bar is guided by an individual’s specific brain profile as compared to normative clinical databases. Sometimes we just need more information about what’s going on. Which is why we offer: Neurofeedback, Biofeedback, & Clinical QEEG Assessments. For Clients with several complex concerns or who have stalled in their progress with other treatments, a more complete 5-point clinical QEEG assessment may be a necessary step. A QEEG assessment visit is used to help empower our clients with information regarding their brain physiology, and to advise therapists to better understand their clients presenting symptomology. The result informs what Neurotherapy training systems may be best suited to our client's needs, and allows for the development of a truly customized treatment plan.EEG Biofeedback/ Active Neurofeedback is a non-pharmaceutical-based training that helps balance the body’s self-regulating capacity. Neurofeedback is biofeedback but with a focus on the central nervous system and brain, in which specific attention is paid to assisting a client in their ability to regulate their autonomic nervous system. The focus of EEG Biofeedback is to train brainwave electrical frequencies to communicate information more efficiently: sort of like fixing up a car so it can most efficiently transport important cargo from point A to point B. The result of this training can lead to improvement in a myriad of physical and emotional symptoms.
CLINICAL Q EEG Assessment & EEG BioFeedback/ Neurofeedback
At Providence Therapy's Brain Bar, we offer a comprehensive 5-point Clinical QEEG Assessment and EEG Biofeedback/Neurofeedback training as part of our holistic and trauma-informed counseling therapy practice.
We understand that sometimes clients need more information about their brain function and tailored interventions to address their specific concerns. Our approach aims to empower clients with valuable insights into their brain physiology, guide therapists in understanding presenting symptomology, and develop customized treatment plans.
A 5-point Clinical QEEG Assessment is particularly beneficial for clients with complex concerns or those who have not made satisfactory progress with other treatments. This assessment provides valuable information about brainwave activity and connectivity by measuring and analyzing the electrical patterns in the brain. By comparing a client's brain profile to normative clinical databases, we gain a deeper understanding of their unique brain functioning.
During the assessment visit, we utilize advanced technology to record brainwave activity through sensors placed on the scalp. This non-invasive procedure is painless and safe. The collected data is then analyzed to identify any abnormalities or dysregulation in brainwave patterns. This information is then reviewed in session with the neurotherapist and allows for questions to be asked. This process aims to empower clients by providing them with a clearer understanding of their brain functioning and what could be impacting their mental health symptoms.
Based on the QEEG assessment results, our trained neurotherapists tailor EEG Biofeedback/Neurofeedback training to suit each client's specific needs.
EEG BIO FEEDBACK/ Neurofeedback Treatment
EEG Biofeedback is a non-pharmaceutical training method that focuses on training brainwave electrical frequencies to improve communication efficiency in the brain. Active Neurofeedback, a branch of EEG Biofeedback, concentrates on assisting clients in self-regulating their autonomic nervous system by training brain frequencies.
A typical EEG Biofeedback session at the Brain Bar involves the client sitting comfortably while sensors are attached to their scalp to monitor brainwave activity. The client engages in specific tasks or exercises while receiving real-time feedback about their brainwave patterns. Through this process, clients learn to regulate their brain activity and achieve a more balanced state.
Risks and Benefits
It's essential to address the potential risks and incredible benefits of EEG Biofeedback/Neurofeedback training. The procedure is generally safe and non-invasive, with minimal side effects when administered correctly. Some clients may experience mild headaches or fatigue after sessions, and it’s normal for some individuals to feel worse before they feel better, especially if individuals are retraining a traumatized nervous system. However, these effects are temporary and typically fade quickly. The benefits of Neurofeedback training can be far-reaching, impacting both physical and emotional symptoms. By improving brainwave communication, clients may experience improvements in mood, attention, memory, pain, sleep patterns, stress management, and overall well-being.
EEG Biofeedback/Neurofeedback training offered at Providence Therapy's Brain Bar can be beneficial for a wide range of individuals. It can support clients with conditions such as anxiety, depression, ADHD, PTSD, insomnia, chronic pain, substance abuse, and more. It is particularly valuable for those who have not found success with traditional treatment approaches or seek an adjunctive therapy option.
