What happens during a neurofeedback session?
Your first neurofeedback session focuses on mapping your brain activity and identifying the brain waves produced when you have positive thoughts or anxious, depressed, and other negative feelings. This map of brain activity shows your TMS & Brain Health provider which patterns are attached to your symptoms.
Then, the provider creates a treatment plan to retrain your brain. You have a set number of neurofeedback sessions, typically one or two appointments each week. At the end of your sessions, you shouldn’t need additional treatment, although some patients have occasional “booster” neurofeedback sessions.
TMS & Brain Health’s IASIS microcurrent neurofeedback therapy usually proceeds relatively quickly. Your provider attaches electrodes to your head while you relax in a comfortable chair. All you need to do is sit still for a few moments.
The electrodes don’t cause any shocks or pain; they monitor your brain waves and deliver microcurrents to your brain in response to your brain activity. The feedback is imperceptible to you, but your brain picks up on the current and adjusts accordingly.
