Frequently Asked Question About Biofeedback

Our naturopathic doctors specifically utilize neurofeedback alongside biofeedback to ensure our treatment techniques have the strongest effects on your nervous system. We monitor and train efferent signals travelling from your brain and afferent signals travelling from your body to create the full picture of how your body processes stress.
The naturopathic doctors and functional medicine practitioners at Neurvana utilize heart rate variability (HRV) training, which can be used to control anxiety, asthma, irregular heartbeat, and chronic obstructive pulmonary (COPD) symptoms, as well as neurofeedback or electroencephalography (EEG). Also called neuro-biofeedback, EEG measures brain waves to treat cognitive issues, ADHD, sleep disturbances, and more.
Neurvana is proud to offer both biofeedback and neurofeedback training, which simultaneously monitor stress responses coming from both your body and brain. Likewise, we utilize swLORETA neurofeedback technology, which is the most precise, robust neurofeedback that is available on the market today. swLORETA boasts the resolution and accuracy of a functional MRI (fMRI) at a dramatically lower cost. And did we mention we’re the only clinic in Canada that’s utilizing this powerful neurofeedback technology?
Biofeedback and neurofeedback are typically safe, though temporary side effects like mental fatigue, low-grade headache, or sleeplessness may occur. However, do err on the side of caution when choosing a biofeedback therapist. The brain is incredibly complex and requires proper testing before administering any type of therapy. Failure to do so can cause significant undesired effects and outcomes that can persist long-term until reversed properly. At Neurvana, our BCIA-certified clinicians always use a quantitative EEG to select proper protocols before beginning treatment.
