What is Neurofeedback?
Brainwave pattern targets are set to improve mood, control of emotions, self -regulation, reduce the feelings of anxiety, and enhance your ability to learn.
Dr. Mike Dadson put this in simple terms: “When you learn how to control your brainwave patterns, you can have better brain function through neurofeedback.”
During the process, your only job is to let the LENS program examine your current brainwave activity and automatically adjust to the optimum positive neurofeedback you create.
“It is like having a dislocated bone put back in place. There is relief, but with LENS it happens without the discomfort,” says Dr. Dadson.
Dr. Michael Dadson explains, “Our technician places small wires called electrodes on your scalp (there is no pain involved), that have a tiny metal disk attached.” An Electroencephalography (EEG –
electrical activity of your brain) is fed back to a computer, where it is processed, to determine existing brain functioning and if you are meeting the desired targets for improved brain function. Dr. Dadson explains further, “The data is sent back to a computer program that quickly analyses your brainwave patterns. It shows you your existing pattern and automatically sends a signal back to your brain so that it adjusts and responds to the desired improved brain function targets.”
Dr. Dadson notes, “Research has shown that a person has the ability to change the brain’s patterns of thought to meet the desired targeted changes in the brain, which in turn improves specifically targeted and overall brain functioning”
Why You Should Consider Neurofeedback Therapy?
Dr. Michael Dadson (Mike Dadson) indicates, “Over many years, research has proven the brain’s ability to make new biological connections, allowing us to adapt with new neurological functions; this is known as neuroplasticity.”
Today, research is demonstrating the effectiveness of neurofeedback therapy for treating various neurological and mental health issues such as depression, anger, trauma, ADHD, autism spectrum disorder (ASD), concussions, and other brain injuries.
