Freuqently Asked Questions
Is Neurofeedback a cure?
In the case of organic brain disorders, it can only be a matter of getting the brain to function better rather than of curing the condition. When it comes to problems of disregulation, we would say that there is not a disease to be cured. Where disregulation is the problem, self-regulation may very well be the remedy. But again the word “cure” would not apply.
Is Neurofeedback painful?
No not at all. Most people feel tired or drained after a session.
Neurofeedback ‘Verses’ Drug Therapy

Neurotherapy can potentially resolve issues permanently. Clients can improve signiﬁcantly without having to rely on medications.

A person can undertake training while on medication. Commonly a client will decrease or eliminate the medication with successful training.
