What is NeuroFeedback?

Neurofeedback training (or “EEG biofeedback”) is a simple, painless, and non-invasive solution for anyone hoping to achieve peak mental performance and improved mental and physical health. It is carried out using neurological sensors placed on different areas of the scalp to record activity from different areas of the brain.

Our state-of-the-art equipment from the leading companies in this field interprets this information to produce meaningful visuals and graphs (or “feedback”) of a client’s brain activity in real-time. Using this feedback, clients can practice regulating their brain function with the help of a trained technician.

With time and continued practice, clients can learn to reproduce optimal brain function in their daily life without the use of neurofeedback equipment.

How does it work?

Neurofeedback is a gym for your brain. Poor brain homeostasis (balance) is like your brain being physically out of shape. Neurofeedback teaches the brain to move from baseline to target repeatedly. To strengthen that response. So, we go from wherever the brain happens to be to the target and we keep repeating that – that’s Phase 1 of Neurofeedback. Much like weightlifting in the gym – going from baseline to target. Train consistently and repeatedly that leads to lasting physical change. Once you have trained your brain like your body to achieve certain outcomes in the gym then you have increased your capacity and that opens the possibility to use that capacity to do real world things. This is Phase two of Neurofeedback where the brain has experienced permanent change.


Brain Functionality

Simplified explanation of a very complex system but for Neurotherapy purposes we are looking at the broader functionality of the brain. Brain has evolved from the back to the front, so the older evolutionary structures are at the back of the brain. We tend to look follow this in Neurotherapy. Brain has differentiated functions in different locations of the brain. A bit like an orchestra. Different parts of the brain working together for different functions with various parts taking the lead or doing a solo at different times.


Brain Locations

Neuro Intimate works with the whole brain. In particular brain structures in the following regions of the brain:
Posterior – Occipital-O1 (back of the brain and the oldest part)
Mid Brain -Cz (Limbic system)
Anterior –F3, F4 (cortex, newest part)

Brain Lobes Anatomy

The International 10–20 system is an internationally recognized method to describe and apply the location of sensors in the context of an EEG examinations, so we measure and influence the brain wave activity at different locations of the brain depending on the outcomes we want. This means we can treat many different conditions.

The equipment central to our treatment protocols is the Flex Cap, which enables us to treat different locations of the brain at the same time for faster, better outcomes. Below is a photo of Professor Dr Brown a leading Neurologist who Neuro Intimate works with guiding a client through the process at his clinic in the States. This process through the use of the latest equipment can all take place remotely.


Training Protocols/Programmes

Following an assessment your data will be analysed and one or more training protocols deployed to you to train at home. These protocols depending on their treatment goals either enhance or inhibit different brin waves to achieve the pattern that is requited for optimal brain performance.


Brain Waves

The brain is fundamentally an electrical organ. We work with different wave frequencies to achieve the balance that is required in different parts of the brain. Below are the brain waves that we work with EEG Neurofeedback.

So, for example a sleep problem is usually linked to not enough slow waves when our eyes are shut in certain parts of the brain. The protocol for this will reward the brain increasing Delta and Theta waves and encourage the brain to inhibit high beta waves which can cause anxiety.
