Neurofeedback Provides Drug-Free Help for Neurological Issues
“Neurofeedback uses sensitive technology to track and release stuck or disregulated brainwave patterns, helping restore harmony and balance to the central nervous system.”
Medical scientists’ recognition of neuroplasticity—the brain’s ability to change and improve function at any age, in adults as well as children—has been a source of hope to many people, especially parents who don’t want to use drugs to treat problems like anxiety, depression, pain and AD/HD in children. “Neurofeedback, or EEG biofeedback, is a gentle but effective way to boost brain fitness and provide lasting relief from neurological conditions in adults and children without the need for medications,” says Anton Bluman, a certified neurofeedback and energy practitioner and licensed counselor based in Sleepy Hollow.
“Neurofeedback uses sensitive technology to track and release stuck or disregulated brainwave patterns, helping restore harmony and balance to the central nervous system,” he says. “The LENS (Low Energy Neurofeedback System) carries a tiny signal from the brain and back in a way that is conducive to the brain self-adjusting—a kind of reset bringing peace, clarity and resilience.”
LENS is user friendly and quick, is administered with the subject’s eyes closed, and requires no effort. These qualities are important when the subject is a fidgety child, or one who has difficulty with prolonged auditory or visual stimuli, Bluman says, adding, “It has even been used effectively on dogs, horses and other pets.”
He says LENS can both treat and train the brain, not just helping with neurological issues, but also relieving stress, emotional reactivity and “brain fog” while increasing mental clarity, focus, energy and productivity.
“LENS is used for performance anxiety and in peak performance training by test takers, executives, sports persons and performing artists for ease and effectiveness,” he says. And for people seeking deep relaxation or inner search, it also measures states of consciousness and facilitates heightened awareness.
“It can be used in synergy with Reconnective Healing and other energy therapies,” he says. “Neurofeedback was used in EEG studies with Tibetan monks some 15 years ago in this regard. When our nervous system is better regulated—less reactive, more sensitive and adaptable—the brain, mind and body are more related and balanced, and we are more able to live optimally.”
