Neurofeedback in Toronto

ACEclinics offer advanced neurofeedback training in Toronto for helping individuals with ADHD, learning disabilities, Aspergers, autism, dyslexia, CAPD and more.

Neurofeedback, also called EEG Biofeedback is a more advanced aspect of biofeedback suitable for children and adults. This technology measures the different types of brainwaves and their ratio in the brain. The brain produces a variety of waves that control the person’s different states of arousal:

 

  • Delta – sleep state
  • Theta – between sleep and awake, also a meditative state
  • Alpha – relaxed state
  • Beta1 – focused concentration
  • Beta2 – alert state
  • Beta3 – very alert, vigilant
  • Beta4 – Hyper vigilant

The ability to produce the right state, whenever it is necessary, is paramount to our health and well being, and Neurofeedback can train the brain to improve those waves that are either deficient or in excess. For instance, head / brain injured patients’ brains produce excessive amount of slow brain activity, which makes them feel even more tired and significantly impairs their cognitive abilities such as focus, concentration, memory and executive functions. Low levels of Beta1 waves significantly reduces their ability to focus and think clearly.

Neurofeedback has been successfully used to improve physical functions, emotional control, muscle tension, sensitivity in tender points, as well as cognitive functions.

ACEclinics, specializing in Neurofeedack in Toronto for almost 30 years, has taken traditional Neurofeedback a few steps further. Creating an innovative, patented approach of combining Neurofeedback with Neuro-cognitive skill training has produced more significant results. We use Neurofeedback with children and adults, as part of a more comprehensive approach to treating conditions such as ADHD, hyperactivity, dyslexia, learning disabilities, asperger’s, CAPD, autism (high functioning), and different chronic condition such as anxiety disorders, post traumatic stress and head/brain injuries.

One of the major advantages over and above the significant comprehensive approach, Neuro-cognitive training can be done at home under clinical supervision without the need to come to the clinic 2-3 times a week.
