What is BrainPaint EEG Neurofeedback?
It is a non-invasive, non-pharmaceutical, collaborative training method for rebalancing and re-regulating the brain wave frequencies that determine behavior, mood, memory, performance, sensory decoding (pain or pleasure) and thought creation. Using a combination of cutting edge brain research, high-speed computer tracking, and algorithms (behavior predicting formulas) the BrainPaint program helps you move your brain away from old, painful, self-defeating thoughts and behaviors, and creates new neural (brain) connections that are associated with focus, calmness, clarity, and motivation.
BrainPaint begins with an assessment that helps you form 4 behavioral goals (i.e. increase length and depth of sleep, decrease anxiety or depression, increase memory and focus, decrease addictions, increase academic, sports or vocational performance), and then asks 90 specific questions that allow that program to tailor your training for your specific brain and goals.
Training takes place in a quiet and comfortable environment. Sensors that are attached to your scalp monitor minute fluctuations in brain wave frequencies as the program coaches you towards change by giving auditory and visual feedback (in real time) of how your brain waves are changing. This rewards the brain for formation of new, more productive thoughts and behavior, and inhibits old,non on-productive thoughts and behavior. People who experience Brain Paint EEG neurofeedback report that they feel relaxed, less stressed, more focused, and are responsive rather than reactive to what life presents.
EEG neurofeedback has been approved by the FDA to treat stress, and has been found effective in reducing or alleviating PTSD, ADD/ADHD, Anxiety, rage and anger, pain associated with muscle tension held around injury, fibromyalgia, insomnia, depression, increasing athletic performance, and job effectiveness.
Sessions usually take place 2 – 3 x per week for a 5 -10 week period for a sense of change to be realized (though they can be done as often as 5 times per week over a 4 week period). Some people find that that is enough to assist in new neural nets (thoughts and behaviors) to be dominant, while others may come back weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly for “tune-ups”. Gains, for the greatest part, remain in effect after training .
