- C$89 for Three 45-minute Neurofeedback Sessions (C$180 value)
During these sessions, clients don a pair of headphones that pipe in pleasant music paired with engaging fractal images that move across a viewing screen. Meanwhile, clients relax in a comfortable chair while the neurofeedback system records brainwaves through surface sensors on the scalp in a process known as an EEG (electroencephalogram). As brainwaves fall into unhealthy patterns, the EEG sensors gather information that is sent to the neurofeedback system which, in turn, delivers the optimal combination of visual and acoustic feedback that can help train the brain to self correct.
Good Vibrations Neurofeedback
The owner of Good Vibrations extols the virtues of neurofeedback. According to Susan Gillies, certified neurofeedback trainer and the owner of the Good Vibrations Centre, the process can reduce stress, improve athletic and musical performance, and increase concentration. A profile of this drug-free form of brain training in The New York Times mentions its use as a treatment for both ADHD and autism. Neurofeedback systems can help people learn to be the boss of their own brainwaves. Neurofeedback is said to help with a variety of conditions, including slowing the brain's aging process and fighting specific conditions including sleep problems, chronic pain, anxiety, concussions, headaches, and depression. Treatments can even boost intangibles, kickstarting personal growth and fueling greater success at artistic, business, and academic ventures. Like anything, neurofeedback only gets better with multiple visits- 12 to 20 visits are often enough to achieve goals—but results vary from person to person. While many clients notice benefits such as improved sleep and increased engagement after a single session, they can also unlock deeper, longer-lasting results with additional visits.
