Because the brain is a self-regulating feedback loop, one out-of-sync area will impact the entire structure, and we find compensatory mechanisms and behaviours kicking in. Neurofeedback uses consistent reinforcement via reward (called “operant conditioning”), which tells the brain when it is producing the proper brain waves, reducing excessive activity, upping deficient activity, and restoring aberrant patterns to a healthy state.
There are two main principles that underlie our approach; brain balance and brain flexibility.
- Balance – equality of distribution or equilibrium between oppositional forces.
- Flexibility – the ability to move fluidly and effortlessly.
