Why Haven't I Heard About Neurofeedback Before?
Many medical professionals have not been educated about this unique modality and some confuse it with basic, older biofeedback. Therefore, many are not familiar with it and are not prescribing it. However, an estimated 2500 - 3500 professionals now use neurofeedback therapy including marriage and family therapists, licensed social workers, psychologists, and registered nurses.

What Do the Experts Say
"In my experience with EEG biofeedback and ADD, many people are able to improve their reading skills and decrease their need for medication. Also, EEg biofeedback has helped to decrease impulsivity and aggressiveness. It is a powerful tool, in part because the patient becomes part of the treatment process by taking more control over his own physiological process."

What is the Difference Between Neurofeedback and Biofeedback?
Neurofeedback therapy is a specialized form of biofeedback. It is EEG biofeedback or advanced biofeedback for the brain. Neurofeedback trains you to change the EEG thereby changing the brain and how the neurons are firing.
