What is Neurofeedback Therapy?
At BHFS Medical and Behavioral Services, we offer neurofeedback therapy as a solution to help our patients train specific areas of the brain to bring it back to full function. Oftentimes, this therapy is utilized for patients with ADHD (attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder), generalized anxiety disorder, bipolar disorder, and more. It is also commonly used to help athletes increase their focus so they can decrease distractions and perform better during games. Neurofeedback therapy is used to teach patients how to take control of their brain functions. It is a reward-based training that essentially teaches the brain how to identify negative brainwave patterns and replace them with positive patterns, which will help a person break free of the cycle that leads to negative emotions or unhealthy responses. Our highly trained therapists, psychologists, and psychiatrists are skilled in neurofeedback therapy and look forward to helping our Flower Mound, Irving, and Carrollton, TX patients take control of their lives. For more information on this therapy, schedule a consultation with clinical director Dr. Dwane Allen at our Lewisville, TX office today.

How Does Neurofeedback Therapy Work?
During your customized neurofeedback therapy session, we'll have you relax in one of our comfortable treatment rooms. We will connect electrode sensors to your head that will read electrical signals produced by your brain and record them onto the computer. From there, one of our team members will have you engage in an activity, like looking at pictures, listening to music, or even playing a videogame. While you do this, we will monitor your brainwaves and create a training technique. During the neurofeedback session, you will actually be able to see your brainwave patterns and learn how to identify negative brainwave patterns. From there, your brain will learn what it needs to do to create positive brainwave patterns. With continued practice, your brain will get better and better at this, allowing you to have more control of your thoughts. These sessions at our Lewisville, TX office typically take between 45 – 60 minutes, and we often suggest about 30 – 40 sessions for optimal success.
