Neurofeedback & Neuromodulation

Various types of neurotherapy and neurofeedback have been developed not because one is superior to the others, but due to differing schools of thought on the workings of neurotherapy and efforts to improve clients’ experiences with it. While some clients respond well to one type of therapy, others may respond better to another.

As a client, it is essential to understand the differences between these types of neurotherapies. Therefore, we will make every effort to help and inform you. It is recommended that neurotherapy is administered onsite or, in the case of home training, supervised by a qualified health practitioner with a sound background in neuroanatomy and physiology.

It is crucial to check the qualifications of a neurotherapist before engaging their services. At a minimum, they should hold a degree in a health science, be registered with AHPRA or a similar organization, and be working towards board certification in neurofeedback if not already certified. Non-professionals lack the necessary standards and training to identify and report severe medical conditions that require immediate medical attention. Therefore, it is essential to consult a neurofeedback professional before investing in any home-based systems.

Neurotherapies are a form of complementary medicine that can assist in treating symptoms of a wide range of psychological and physiological disorders.

Neurofeedback, also known as EEG biofeedback, provides rewards (usually visual or auditory) to the client through feedback. This feedback is delivered back to the brain in real-time, guiding the brain towards adjustments that help regulate the central nervous system and improve performance. This classic type of neurofeedback is effective, but requires frequent sessions, much like regular gym training.

Neuromodulation combines various neurostimulation techniques (listed below) to retrain pathological patterns of brainwave activity based on the presenting problem. Neurostimulation includes pulsed Electromagnetic Field stimulation (pEMF), transcranial Direct Current Stimulation (tDCS), transcranial Alternating Current Stimulation (tACS), and transcranial Random Noise Stimulation (tRNS).

Neurofeedback and neuromodulation can be used as standalone therapies or combined, depending on the client’s needs.
