What is Neurofeedback?
Every time we think, feel, or do, our brain is producing measurable brainwaves (EEG). During a neurofeedback session, data is recorded and mirrored back to the client. Then this information is provided to you via computer feedback. This allows an individual to be aware of their brain activity. We are then able to take this information and use it to train brainwaves to optimize mindset, be more resilient, encourage flexible thinking patterns, and improve overall brain function. This unique tool is essential for catalyzing personal transformation.

What happens in a Neurofeedback session?
Our brains are more receptive if we provide real time feedback, consistency, repetition, and more reward than punishment. Neurofeedback does just that!
In a session, sensors are gently placed on the scalp and ears. These sensors collect information and the software uses mathematical calculations that translate the brain’s electrical currents into brain wave frequencies. Using visual and auditory stimulus, the brain is informed about its “internal functioning”. Of course every individual and brain are unique but the general theory of Neurofeedback is similar for everyone.

Sixty years of research and development of neurofeedback shows that clients will experience a multitude of improvements in cognitive functioning. Individuals who train with neurofeedback experience advancements in:
- Concentration and focus
- Quality of sleep
- Mental and emotional energy
- Overall calmness
- Improved feeling of well-being and mental clarity
Neurofeedback can also help decrease impulsivity, physical hyperactivity, and reduce mind racing, nervousness, stress, and fogginess.
In other words neurofeedback can change your brain and change your quality of life!
At Evolve, we believe in improving your overall health and wellness through a holistic approach. Based on your neurofeedback session, we may recommend other areas of services.
