At Tennessee Neurofeedback, we are dedicated to helping you achieve your fullest potential through personalized neurofeedback training—a cutting-edge solution to cognitive and emotional concerns.

What is Neurofeedback?

Neurofeedback helps you heal your mind by training your brain. Imagine having a window into your brain’s activity in real time – that’s what neurofeedback offers. However, neurofeedback does not just present you with data. The biofeedback gathered during your session is used to help you harness your brain’s potential for an overall better mood and deeper focus.

How Does Neurofeedback Work?

During a neurofeedback session, you are connected to sensors that monitor your brainwave activity. These sensors don’t just collect data—they pick up on patterns and changes in your brainwaves which are translated into positive reinforcement for your brain in real time. While you watch TV or relax with calming music, your brain gets better and better at producing healthy activity.

Conditions We Treat

Neurofeedback is effective in treating a wide range of mental conditions, including:

Benefits of Neurofeedback

There are no shortages to the benefits of Neurofeedback, but some of the most prominent are: 

  • Improved Focus and Concentration: By training the brain to regulate its activity, neurofeedback can enhance attention and concentration.
  • Better Sleep: Neurofeedback has been shown to improve sleep quality and reduce insomnia by helping the brain achieve a more balanced state of relaxation and arousal.
  • Reduced Anxiety and Stress: By teaching the brain to regulate its stress response, neurofeedback can help reduce feelings of anxiety and promote a sense of calm and relaxation.
  • Enhanced Mood: Neurofeedback can help stabilize mood and reduce symptoms of depression by promoting healthy brainwave patterns associated with positive emotions.
  • Increased Cognitive Function: Neurofeedback has been shown to enhance cognitive function, including memory, problem-solving, and decision-making skills.

Frequently Asked Questions

Does neurofeedback work permanently?

While individual results may vary, many clients experience long-term benefits from neurofeedback training. However, maintenance sessions may be recommended to ensure continued progress over time. Clients often experience continued healing even after they stop training, which has been validated by follow up brain maps that show improved brain function even in the absence of ongoing neurofeedback.

What is the success rate of neurofeedback?

Factors such as the severity of symptoms, the individual’s commitment to the training program, and the skill of the neurofeedback provider can all influence the success rate of treatment. We expect all clients to see significant symptom reduction as long as external factors like ongoing trauma, family system issues, or exposure to toxins aren’t inhibiting the brain’s ability to respond to training.

What age is best for neurofeedback?

 Neurofeedback is safe for all ages, and we treat anyone age 5 and older. Kids and teens love neurofeedback, as their only responsibility during a session is to watch TV. Adults find neurofeedback very relaxing. Older adults may require more sessions due to decreased plasticity in aging brains.

Who is a good candidate for neurofeedback?

Neurofeedback is completely non-invasive, and everyone can benefit. Most of our clients are experiencing a moderate to high level of distress due to anxiety, ADHD, trauma, or other mental health concerns. However, we also treat many people who already feel good and want to take their brain’s function to its peak level. 

How long should a neurofeedback session be?

Neurofeedback sessions typically last 30 minutes. The number of sessions required to achieve optimal results can vary, but a typical course of neurofeedback may involve anywhere from 40 to 60 sessions spaced out over several months.
