Neurofeedback can help rewire and strengthen the brain. Each client receives specialized treatment, meaning that we make an individualized program based on the needs of each person. The specific type of neurofeedback that may best fit your needs will be determined during your first office visit. Please read a more in-depth description about neurofeedback here.
Migraines often present after periods of high-stress or when our bodies are in “fight or flight” mode. Biofeedback is a tool to measurephysiology, which gives feedback about the state of the nervous system. With this information, people are able to change physiology, which can help to get our bodies back into a rest and repair state. Over time, our nervous system steps out of this hyper-vigilant state, preventing migraines from ever occurring.
We have many biofeedback devices and software in our office. We use both Heart Math and Alive in office and also have many available for rental.
HEG (hemoencephalography) biofeedback uses an infraredsensor(usually placed on the forehead) to measure blood flow. A visual feedbackis then shown to the client which allows them to increase blood flow. Anincrease in blood flow helps with cell repair and metabolism. Blood flow isparticularly critical for people with migraines and HEG is a useful tool forthis.
