End Depression Symptoms For the Long Term
Chronic depression can lead to a consistent negative emotional state and affect every aspect of your life. Fear, anger, worry, can begin to dominate your thoughts and give rise to inappropriate reactions that impair your ability to be at your best, and enjoy life to the fullest.
Neurofeedback Training Can Help Correct the Causes of Depression
Neurofeedback training helps the brain learn new, healthier ways of thinking. Over time, it can allow you or your loved one to return to a more natural, contented state – with greater happiness and resilience in whatever circumstances you may face.
How does neurofeedback improve your basic mood?
Neurofeedback training teaches the brain to build healthier neural pathways. These healthier, more balanced pathways result in better mood regulation. And, because it is a fully natural approach, while you`re brain is learning, neurofeedback treatment does not come with any of the side effects that antidepressants can cause.
The Improvements Are Long Lasting
Even better, the improvements gained through neurofeedback training last a long time, similar to learning a new life skill when you were young, such as riding a bicycle.
First, we measure your brainwave distribution using a Brain Map or qEEG (Quantitative Electroencephalogram). The measurement process is painless and takes about twenty minutes. With this information, a custom neurofeedback training protocol is designed that will help re-train your brain and restore its healthy, balanced function. Neurofeedback can help provide a permanent, natural solution for depression and its debilitating symptoms.
The Training Is Safe and Effective
Unlike many talk therapy sessions, neurofeedback can be a pleasant, enjoyable experience. You get to sit back, relax, and watch a movie or video of your own choosing. While in the neurofeedback session, we will be measuring your brainwave activity using two small sensors placed lightly on your scalp. These readings will provide the computer with real-time information on how you are feeling, based on the brainwave output.
Most cases of depression can be related to an excess of Alpha waves in the left hemisphere of the brain. While you are training, if your brain slips into that depressed state, the movie goes dim, and the sound decreases. Over time, these audio and visual “feedback” cues help your brain develop new, more balanced neural connections. The result – a decrease in the excess of Alpha waves, and an improvement in your mood!
