Depression

RELIEF FROM DEPRESSION

Depression changes the way you see yourself, your life, and other people in your life. It is a common condition that affects millions of Americans to varying degrees. This changed view can affect you by shining a negative light on all aspects of your life. Regardless of what is really going on, this negative viewpoint frequently impairs your ability to be at your best. 

Symptoms of depression include:

  • Feeling sad, angry, fearful, or in a generally depressed mood
  • Disruptions to sleep, appetite, or concentration
  • Feelings of irritability, agitation, increased worry, or restlessness
  • Experiencing a loss of interest for things you once enjoyed
  • Feeling fatigued or having reduced energy 
  • Experiencing a sense of worthlessness or guilt
  • Depression can often accompany anxiety, as well.

How does neurofeedback training bring relief from depression?

Typically, EEG studies of people suffering with depression have portions of the frontal area of the brain that are imbalanced. When the frontal regions of the brain are asymmetrically activated, patients may exhibit signs of sadness, difficulty concentrating, or decreased motivation.  Neurofeedback works to train the brain, and helps teach the brain to even out these imbalances and asymmetry. Neurofeedback helps create new neural pathways, improving brainwave balance in the brain, which in turn increases happiness and positivity.

What is a neurofeedback training session?

A neurofeedback training session is a relaxed, pleasant, enjoyable experience. Patients sit comfortably, relax, and watch a video that they pick themselves. During the session, our equipment measures the patient’s brainwaves using two small sensors.  The measurements taken during the session provide us with immediate feedback on how the brain is functioning.  These measurements are used to create real-time changes in the audio and visual inputs of the video.  The brain responds to these changes by creating new neural connections that are more balanced.

Results that last.

Neurofeedback training makes improvements in the neural pathways in the brain, and the effects of the training last a long time. The pathways remain long after your last training session. Just like when you learned how to ride a bike, or swim, these new, healthier pathways remain present, available for use at any time.
