What is Neurofeedback?

Neurofeedback is a type of biofeedback that helps to train your brain to function optimally.

Your brain cells communicate via electrical impulses and are active all the time, even when you are asleep. Brainwaves occur at various frequencies: Delta, Theta, Alpha, Beta, and Gamma. They are measured in cycles per second or hertz (Hz).

Each frequency carries a different meaning about emotions. See below:

Neurofeedback trains your brain to optimize the brain frequencies and reestablish balance. See below how Neurofeedback can help you:

How Does a Neurofeedback Session Looks like?

Barcelona Counseling uses NeurOptimal® equipment for Neurofeedback. NeurOptimal® is non-invasive. No electricity, vibration, or external signal is going into the brain during your session. The feedback is created by listening to pleasant music and sounds. During your session, two small sensors are placed on your head, one on your left ear, and two on your right ear. You will be sitting on a reclined chair with a weighted blanket (blanket is optional). The experience is relaxing, pain-free, drug-free, and completely non-invasive. NeurOptimal® is 100% natural.

 

What Equipment is used?  https://neuroptimal.com/discover-neuroptimal

Barcelona Counseling uses The NeurOptimal® technology for your Neurofeedback sessions.

NeurOptimal® does not require a diagnosis, but rather it dances microsecond by microsecond with your brain offering it the information it needs to recognize itself.  It focuses on optimizing overall brain function instead of targeting specific symptoms or areas of the brain. That leaves less margin of human error. For that reason, NeurOptimal® is globally effective and naturally ameliorates most symptoms, whatever their source. Each brain is unique and knows the best way to “correct” itself for improved efficiency. NeurOptimal® simply provides the central nervous system with information about its own activity. Given the right information, the brain can naturally optimize itself.
