Mental health affects many people in the United States at some level. According to the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI), one in five adults experience a mental illness every year, and one in 20 adults live with a serious mental illness. These illnesses can be overwhelming and deserve to be treated in whatever way possible. All too frequently, mental illnesses treatments revolve around medications, which can be great short term answers but can sometimes fail as life-long solutions. Therefore, our team at NeuraPerformance in Denver believes and advocates for counseling and neurofeedback therapies as non-medicated treatments focused on total brain health.

Neurofeedback And Counseling Lead To Brain Health

What is neurofeedback?

Neurofeedback is a type of brain training program that helps alleviate negative symptoms associated with mental illness. By measuring the brain’s electric current, we are able to track the activity level as the brain responds to different stimulants. As an active participant, the patient learns to recognize the positive currents and separate them from the negative currents. Eventually, he or she is able to channel the positive and functional areas of the brain and push away the negative actions. This means an ultimate control of one’s brain, which can also help improve expression, sleep patterns, and chronic pain relief while it decreases the effects of anxiety and depression and relieves migraines.
