Neurofeedback Training in Washington, DC
Neurofeedback treats mental health conditions like ADHD, anxiety, depression, and PTSD. The biggest benefit is that it is as effective as stimulant medicine for ADHD. DCNE offers neurofeedback because clients asked to help them get off their medications.
Alpha Theta Neurofeedback Training
Alpha-theta neurofeedback is a type of training that involves the use of QEEG (quantitative electroencephalography) to monitor and alter brainwave activity. It is based on the idea that certain brainwave patterns, such as alpha and theta waves, are associated with specific mental health symptoms. Both brain waves called alpha and theta can be trained to improve mental and emotional well-being.
Alpha-theta neurofeedback is often used as a treatment for conditions such as ADHD, anxiety, depression, and addiction, and it is also used to enhance performance in areas such as sports, music, and academics.
The goal of alpha theta neurofeedback training is to help regulate brainwave activity, particularly in the alpha and theta frequency ranges. Alpha brainwaves are associated with relaxation and calmness, while theta brainwaves are associated with creativity, intuition, and insight. By encouraging the production of these brainwaves, neurofeedback training can help improve mental and emotional states.
How Alpha Theta Neurofeedback Training Works
Here is how alpha-theta neurofeedback training works:
- EEG sensors are placed on the head to measure brainwave activity. Nothing is ever sent into your brain with magnets, electric shocks, or anything else.
- The EEG signals are fed into a computer, which analyzes the brainwave patterns and produces a visual representation of the brain activity.
- All you have to do is close your eyes and relax. The computer will make soothing sounds and those sounds are in response to your brainwave activity. The sounds are training your alpha and theta waves to be within the normal ranges. When you’re in the normal ranges, unwanted symptoms reduce or go away entirely.
- This process continues for about 30 minutes. That is considered one session of alpha theta neurofeedback.
