Infra-low Frequency Training involves direct training of brain wave function for the purpose of developing more efficient patterns of brain-wave activity. This improved self-regulation of brain-wave activity transfers into improved self-regulation of emotions, behaviors and cognitive functioning.
Infra-low Frequency training begins with rewarding a very low brain-wave frequency (.0001 to .0002 Hz) at sites that help calm the brain. Usually, clients report a "more relaxed, but alert" feeling after their first training. We then add combinations of sites which have been shown to improve the particular symptoms reported by the client.
During training, the client's brain-wave activity is monitored by placing sensors on the scalp. The client is then provided live, real-time auditory "feedback" in regard to this activity. Typically, the client is relaxing in an eyes-open or eyes-closed state.
Just with Traditional Neurofeedback, the goal is to reward specific brain-wave activity so you can learn to produce more of this desired activity, when appropriate. Over time, your brain associates the preferred brain-wave activity with positive outcomes, which makes the particular activity more readily available when needed. Typically clients must attend multiple sessions over an extended period of time for lasting benefits.
Traditional neurofeedback is a non-evasive option that has been found successful for:
Diminishing learning disabilities
Many other types of symptoms
