Neurotherapy includes the use of neurofeedback, stimulation techniques and photobiomodulation applied by licensed mental health professionals with appropriate systems training. Simply stated, the process involves using precise instruments to measure and analyze brainwave activity; this information is then presented to the client as continuous “feedback” and the physiological behavior in the brain begins to change as the client’s behavior is positively reinforced by the system and the practioner. Information can also be administered to the client through magnetic fields and low current stimulation, chosen based on their specific brain functioning. Neurofeedback is referred to as a self-regulation method because it teaches the brain to modulate itself by increasing the flexibility and relaxation/activation patterns of the neural pathways. These changes influence the thinking, feeling and behavior of the client. Over time, it is expected that these changes will become the normal functioning of the person.
