Neurofeedback Services at Women’s Recovery
Neurofeedback: A Powerful Tool for Healing
At Women’s Recovery, we are proud to be able to offer neurofeedback services for our clients. Our focus has always been on providing holistic recovery options for women battling addictions to drugs and alcohol at an alcohol and drug detox center. This is just one way we are able to continue to do that, and we are excited about all the benefits our clients will receive.
What is Neurofeedback?
Neurofeedback is a relatively new form of therapy, and many of our clients will be unfamiliar with it. Fortunately, very little knowledge is required on their part in order to receive it. But we know the importance of providing our clients with as much information as possible about their possible treatment options. That is why we wanted to take this opportunity to discuss neurofeedback in greater detail.
Neurofeedback is often referred to as Neurotherapy or EEG Biofeedback. It is a type of treatment that helps the client learn how to modify their way of thinking. This is done by studying the individual’s brainwaves and training them to modify their brainwave activity levels.
As we mentioned previously, neurofeedback is completely painless. It is a non-invasive form of treatment, which is why it is so useful for treating addiction and various mental health conditions holistically.
What are the Benefits of Neurotherapy?
There are many benefits to receiving Neurotherapy. Typically, clients experience a drastic reduction in the symptoms caused by their mental health conditions. Many have also reported:
- Improvements in their performance at school or work.
- Stress relief.
- Better social relationships.
- Improvement in their symptoms of anxiety.
- A reduction in panic attacks.
- Improved self-esteem levels.
- Better mood and even emotional resilience.
- Less feelings of irritability.
- Improved attention and concentration levels.
- Less instances of oppositional behaviors.
- Better cognitive performance and learning abilities.
- A reduction in seizures (if a seizure disorder is present).
- Increased motivation and energy levels.
Neurotherapy has also been shown to be extremely beneficial in the treatment of addiction. It can help people change bad habits and even manage food cravings.
What are the Risks of Neurofeedback Treatment?
In addition to its effectiveness, the best part of neurofeedback is the fact that there really are no risks involved. This form of treatment rarely produces any negative side effects, which cannot always be said for other forms of care.
Having said that, while most will never experience any negative side effects, a few have reported short periods of troubling emotions. A small percentage of people may report feeling dizzy, fatigued, or experiencing tingling sensations during treatment. But again, these instances are rare, and they will not become persistent.
