Neurofeedback: Your Personal Brain Trainer
Neurofeedback--also known as neurotherapy or EEG biofeedback--teaches your brain to improve its functioning at the core level, much like a personal trainer who teaches you how to strength-train: how to properly lift, how much weight to lift, how many repetitions, how often, and so forth. The result of strength-training is a strong, productive, efficient body; similarly, the result of brain training via neurofeedback tends to be a strong, productive, resilient, efficient brain.
Why Would Anyone Need a Personal Brain Trainer?
Your brain is your Command Center -- a complex system of electro-chemical activity -- that regulates your attention, emotions, behavior, mood, thoughts, sleep, response time, pain perception, and so on. Your Command Center may become negatively impacted by many things such as chronic stress; grief; emotional and/or physical trauma; exposure to toxic substances, situations and/or relationships; negative thoughts and self-talk; feelings of failure or extreme pressure; genetic predispositions; and other such factors.
Neurofeedback trains the electrical activity and timing in your brain to OPTIMIZE, resulting in permanent transformation: a strong, productive, efficient brain that's more attentive, focused, alert, & calm, with improved sleep patterns, increased resilience to stress, and improved grace under pressure. Clients notice that they function optimally at work, optimally at play, and optimally at rest.
Neurofeedback Empowers Your Brain to Permanently Change
Neurofeedback addresses the ROOT causes of the symptoms keeping you from being the best version of yourself. Medications can be very effective in helping most of the issues that neurofeedback improves; however, medications tend to be a temporary band-aid, whereas neurofeedback enables the brain to make permanent changes -- causing symptoms to either disappear or to significantly diminish. Note: statistics show that 5% of the population does not respond to neurofeedback. Also, Elevate Brain Training encourages clients to embrace brain-healthy lifestyle habits in order to support brain health.

**Elevate Brain Training strongly recommends that folks with addictions seek treatment at an addiction recovery center. Locate a provider at an addiction recovery center near you at http://neurotherapist.info/. Neurofeedback is a research-based intervention for addiction when coupled with a 12-step or faith-based recovery group.
Can Neurofeedback Replace Medication?
While under doctor supervision, most people find they can either cut down or stop using their medication after successfully completing the required number of sessions. Interestingly enough, medication puts your brain in similar brainwave states as neurofeedback *teaches* your brain to permanently learn to produce on its own -- without the adverse side effects of medication.
How Many Sessions Do I Need?
Generally, most clients notice improvements within the first 5-8 sessions at 2 sessions per week. For longer lasting and typically permanent results, 20-30 sessions are recommended -- 2x/week. Approximately 75-80% of BrainPaint clients report their symptoms are "better" or "resolved" by the 20th session. More complex symptom clusters may require more sessions.
