Neurofeedback is a proven brain coordination technology that can be a terrific adjunct to Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy for all sorts of Brain and Nerve issues – Austism, Concussion, TBI, PTSD, ADDHD, Pain and more. It may enhance the results you achieve from HBOT, because Neurofeedback actually helps you to structurally evolve the brain’s connectivity, which allows the various sections of the brain to begin to talk to one another. Better intersectional communication means better performance. Neurofeedback treatments will help the brain to self regulate reducing the state of becoming overwhelmed when performing cognitive functions.
Oxygen’s begins the process of restoring the brain through the magic of Oxygen. Basking your cells in O2 provides them regenerative fuel to steadily build new tissue: nerves, synapses, stem cells and the like. Pressurized oxygen sets up the environment for real repair. Meanwhile Neurofeedback actively trains your brain to do its job. Think of it this way – Neurofeedback would be like going to the gym and physically working out the brain ‘muscles’. Your brain is trained, rapidly, to reorganize itself through very technical trainings and this then allows pathways to regroup, to become more a more effectively organized unit. HBOT oxygen optimizes the environment for physical restructure while Neurofeedback builds performance for a tremendous healing potential.
Incorporate Neurofeedback with your HBOT program and you accelerate your much-wanted results. This European approach along with Hyperbaric stimulation provides the brain a whole-encompassing, total-therapy approach where you attack healing from several angles. Combine modalities for a more proactive response. HBOT / Neurofeedback – a strong combination for Brain / Nerve restoration and Pain Management.
Check out The EEGInstitute. They utilize the most effective European Othmer Neurofeedback method. EEGInstitute is also the training center for many doctors around the country, where you can find a local practitioner to assist you. It’s a great place to investigate whether Neurofeedback could be another solution for effective Brain and nervous system regeneration for you or your family member.

What is Neurofeedback?
Neurofeedback is direct training of brain function, by which the brain learns to function more efficiently. We observe the brain in action from moment to moment. We show that information back to the person. And we reward the brain for changing its own activity to more appropriate patterns. This is a gradual learning process. It applies to any aspect of brain function that we can measure. Neurofeedback is also called EEG Biofeedback, because it is based on electrical brain activity, the electroencephalogram, or EEG. Neurofeedback is training in self-regulation. It is simply biofeedback applied to the brain directly. Self-regulation is a necessary part of good brain function. Self-regulation training allows the system (the central nervous system) to function better.
Neurofeedback addresses problems of brain dysregulation. These happen to be numerous. They include the anxiety-depression spectrum, attention deficits, behavior disorders, various sleep disorders, headaches and migraines, PMS and emotional disturbances. It is also useful for organic brain conditions such as seizures, the autism spectrum, and cerebral palsy.
Our intellectual abilities and emotional resources can be considerably enhanced with neurofeedback training.

How Does it Work?
We apply electrodes to the scalp to listen in on brainwave activity. We process the signal by computer, and we extract information about certain key brainwave frequencies. (All brainwave frequencies are equal, but some are more equal than others…) We show the ebb and flow of this activity back to the person, who attempts to change the activity level. Some frequencies we wish to promote. Others we wish to diminish. We present this information to the person in the form of a video game. The person is effectively playing the video game with his or her brain. Eventually the brainwave activity is “shaped” toward more desirable, more regulated performance. The frequencies we target, and the specific locations on the scalp where we listen in on the brain, are specific to the conditions we are trying to address, and specific to the individual.
Who Provides Neurofeedback?
Neurofeedback (EEG Biofeedback) is typically provided by mental health professionals such as psychologists, family therapists, and counselors. These professions usually work with clients one-on-one. The training may also be provided by nurses, clinical social workers, rehabilitation specialists, and educators. MDs also provide the service, but with the exception of psychiatrists, will usually have the service provided by a trained staff person.
Is Neurofeedback a Cure?
In the case of organic brain disorders, it can only be a matter of getting the brain to function better rather than of curing the condition. When it comes to problems of disregulation, we would say that there is not a disease to be cured. Where disregulation is the problem, self-regulation may very well be the remedy. But again the word “cure” would not apply.
What Conditions Can it Help?
We are especially concerned with the more “intractable” brain-based problems of childhood whose needs are not currently being met. This includes, Seizures and sub-clinical seizure activity, Severely disruptive behavior disorders such as Conduct Disorder and Bipolar Disorder, Autistic spectrum and pervasive developmental delay, Cerebral palsy, Acquired brain injury, Birth trauma.
Many children have sleep problems that can be helped such as Bed wetting, Sleep walking, sleep talking, Teeth grinding, Nightmares, Night terrors.
We can also be helpful with many of the problems of adolescence including Drug abuse, Suicidal behavior, Anxiety and depression.
We can also help to maintain good brain function as people get older. The good news is that almost any brain, regardless of its level of function, can be trained to function better.
While medication and behavioral interventions can do a good job treating the symptoms of children with ADD or ADHD, neurofeedback retrains the brain to regain better control and focus. This method is about building up the person, focused on the qualities they possess.
Stress & Anxiety
Anxiety is a common response to stress, and sufferers often feel overwhelmed, exhausted, and fatigued. Neurofeedback can help guide your brain to change how it responds to stimuli that disturb our physical or mental equilibrium.
Concentration, focus and emotional control are key to achieving optimal performance in all fields. Athletes and business executives are taking advantage of neurofeedback technologies to learn how to utilize the full potential of their minds to reach their peak.
