Sleep is one of the first things to improve with neurofeedback, however there are many variables to consider with sleep. Neurofeedback cannot change underlying conditions such as sleep apnea, thyroid/hormonal imbalances, Lyme disease, chronic toxic exposure, and other medical conditions. Medical or alternative treatment may be necessary so the benefits of neurofeedback are lasting.
Neurofeedback is very effective at helping the brain learn to repeat desired patterns for improved sleep. Here are examples of how we view sleep issues:
Sleep onset: Getting to sleep can be challenging when the brain is stuck in the fast zone and cannot shift gears to relax.
Sleep retention: Staying asleep can be difficult if the brain is stuck on low gear. This is counter-intuitive. We waken before slowing threatens survival.
Restless sleep: Sometimes our survival brain gets stuck processing stressful information from the day and we have a hard time shifting gears so we can relax and settle into restful sleep.
Over-sleeping: Sleeping too much can be an indicator of too much slow brainwave activity or a generally under-aroused brain state.
Ongoing toxic exposure, shift-work, time zone/jet lag, and other lifestyle factors are taken into consideration in the evaluation process. These can all negatively impact sleep cycles.
Protocols teach the brain to self-regulate – no energy comes into the brain. The process is safe and painless. The brain learns to replicate learned improvements and the results are lasting.

We did the neurofeedback training as a family and had great results. From my experience I would say it improved my focus and clarity, giving me a sense of wellbeing. I felt more productive and efficient. As a family, it reduced everyone’s stress level and allowed for our time together to be more relaxed and enjoyable. I am glad we did it.
