Advanced Neurofeedback Brain Training

Better Brain Better Life


WHAT WE DO.

BrainWorks Langley offers neurofeedback as a brain training service to help your brain work at its best so you can experience life at your best.

Using sophisticated computer equipment your brain’s electrical activity is measured and analyzed, and then information is given back to your brain so it can correct its inefficient patterns.

A better regulated brain can improve the way you think, the way you feel, and the way your brain regulates your body’s functions and movements.
Welcome

WHO IS THIS FOR?

For some, brain training is a tool to assist them achieve their peak performance, such as executives, athletes, musicians, academics and creatives.

Others seek out neurofeedback because they are experiencing common concern areas indicating their central nervous system (brain) is not functioning optimally as it should, such as:

  • Memory problems
  • Poor performance on tasks
  • Sleep difficulties
  • Feeling sad
  • Difficulty paying attention or focusing
  • Overactivity or anxiousness
  • Addiction threats
  • Headaches
  • Irritability

Others might be facing more severe concern areas involving brain dysregulation such as:

  • ADHD
  • Addiction and eating disorders
  • Anxiety
  • Attachment Disorder
  • Autism and Asperger's
  • Bipolar Disorder
  • Chemo-brain
  • Depression
  • Insomnia
  • Learning Disabilities
  • Migraines
  • OCD and Obsessive Thinking
  • PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder)
  • Seizures
  • Stroke and Traumatic Brain Injury (mTBI)

HOW DOES MY BRAIN ACTIVITY BECOME INEFFICIENT?

All electrical dysregulation in the brain is caused by some kind of trauma, either prolonged or acute. Physical injuries, frightening experiences, illness, disease, chemical poisoning, substance misuse, sleep deprivation, and other distressing emotional or psychological experiences. When a trauma is severe enough, a signature pattern of dysregulated electrical activity in the brain can be detected and diagnosed by an imaging procedure called brain mapping. Each severe concern area such as anxiety, PTSD or post-concussion syndrome all exhibit their own unique electrical signature of dysregulation.

WHAT IS A NEUROFEEDBACK SESSION LIKE?


To begin, five small sensors are attached to your ears and head.  Then, you lay back in a reclining chair and listen to captivating music for 33 minutes.  Most people sleep during their sessions.  When the session is over the sensors are removed and you’re finished.  Most people report feeling refreshed, calm and alert, even if they nodded in and out of consciousness.  The entire session takes approximately 60 minutes.


What’s going on with your brain is a different story.  During the session the sensors on your head detect the electrical activity of your central nervous system and feed that information to a computer.  The computer then monitors and analyzes your brain’s activity, and then sends signals to your brain through perfectly timed interrupts in the music you are listening to.  These interrupts are signals alerting your brain to specific voltage changes in its activity.  When the brain takes notice of inefficient activity, it can go about reorganizing itself.  The simplest way to understand how neurofeedback works is that it is like holding a mirror up to the brain so it can observe its own activity and make necessary corrections to improve the way it functions.  So what seems like a peaceful and relaxing time for you is a robust work out for your brain.  And so neurofeedback is called brain training.  


HOW MANY SESSIONS WILL YOU NEED?


This is impossible to predict for any one person because everyone’s brain is unique, but historical experiences can give you a sense of what you might expect.  Keep this in mind so you can develop realistic expectations about outcomes for your training.


Individuals addressing minor concern areas tend to stop training at about 12 sessions.  Those with moderate challenges finish in the 20-30 session range.  Individuals with major concerns, multiple issues, or long term entrenched issues might seek 40 or more sessions.  


Studies also suggest the results last.  Because the neurofeedback is training, the brain is learning new ways to organize itself, and like learning to ride a bike, that learning stays with you.  Some, but not all, like to come back for refresher trainings once or twice per year., 


Training experiences suggest better outcomes occur when there aren’t  long interruptions between sessions.  Twice a week for the first month is good and then weekly for a time and bi-weekly after that until personal results are achieved.
