We strictly administer Neurofeedback following a comprehensive assessment, so that the program is of optimal benefit to the patient.
By training the brain to less overactive states, Neurofeedback can make it easier to fall asleep and stay asleep.
Neurofeedback is proven to be safe and other than feeling a little tired after a session, there are no side-effects to this brain training technique. Unlike certain sedative sleep medications which may induce fogginess or drowsiness during the day, Neurofeedback therapy has the advantage that it promotes natural sleep to recalibrate a healthy circadian rhythm.
An average of 30 – 40 sessions is typically needed, with sessions held at least twice per week. After completing their Neurofeedback Program, most patients enjoy long-lasting benefits.
The efficacy of Neurofeedback relies on a gradual and natural learning process in the brain, like learning a musical instrument or sport. Once the new brain activity has been learnt, the positive effects can be sustained. Think of it like a “gym for the brain“.
We only apply protocols which have been rigorously tested in science and use technologies that are supported by these studies. By doing a comprehensive QEEG and Actigraphy sleep assessment, our Psychologists and Psychiatrists are equipped with a deeper insight into your brain activity, to better tailor your program.
neuroCare’s experienced Psychiatry or Psychoogy staff will supervise your program with a referral from your doctor.
Practitioners working in neuroCare Clinics apply state-of-the-art assessment methods to gain a better understanding of a person’s neurophysiology and to recommend a more targeted therapy program.
