Neurofeedback is a therapy that is being used to treat ADD/ ADHD. It works very well for children, as it is non-invasive and can often involve playing video games as a way to train the brain.
Neurofeedback is increasingly seen as an appealing alternative to medication to treat ADHD. The treatment is easy and painless, starting with electrodes being attached to the head and then to a computer. The images on the computer screen respond to brain activity. When the right kind of brain activity is demonstrated, something positive will happen on the computer, thus guiding the child or adult to balance their brain waves.
Balanced brain waves equal a reduction in symptoms, and a direct improvement of the quality of life of the patient.
