Neurofeedback or EEG biofeedback is a computer-aided training method in which the patient’s own brain activity can be monitored and improved.
Neurofeedback or EEG biofeedback is a computer-aided training method in which the patient’s own brain activity can be monitored and improved. It is an evidence based therapy with a foundation in neuroscience. At the Wholeness Center in Fort Collins, our doctors offer neurofeedback and EEG Biofeedback for a variety of conditions.
During sessions, you are trained to improve your brain function through self-regulation, and rewarded with different forms of feedback including movies, video games or your favorite music.
People typically report improvements in as few as 5 sessions. Contact our office to set up a session today, or sign up for a free consultation!

What Does Neurofeedback Do?
During neurofeedback, sensors are placed on the trainee’s scalp in order to measure brainwave activity. This activity is presented to the trainee who will then try to change the activity level. The trainee will try to increase certain frequencies, while decreasing other frequencies. Overtime, the brainwave activity is shaped toward a more desirable state. The frequencies that are trained are specific to each individual based on the information collected by the QEEG assessment. Changes can be measured with subjective changes by the individual, and also with changes in baseline QEEG measures and standardized testing.
