Neurofeedback is intended for people with neurological and nervous system conditions. Here is a list of symptoms that are often shown in research studies to be clinically responsive to neurofeedback:
ADD / ADHD
Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder
It’s important to note that Neurofeedback does not specifically target any disorder. Instead Neurofeedback changes timing and activation patterns in the brain. The goal is to slowly guide your brain back into normal, healthy ranges and reconnect neural pathways that have been disconnected. The result is an improvement in brain regulation, which in turn impacts a variety of symptoms.
Listed below is additional information for specific conditions. This information was gathered from aboutneurofeedback.com. Additional research and comprehensive studies can be found at the website of the International Society for Neurofeedback and Research.
I came to Abundant Life with shingles for Raindrop Therapy and Lymphstar Pro and was able to go back to work for a few hours the next day. Within a week the pain was at a 3 or 4 instead of 10 and a week later I back to normal. Susie was wonderful. I purchased the shingles protocol that was recommended and it worked great. It is so nice to know that there is a place that has such a caring staff. Thanks.
Excellent staff, services & place. My go to for all things natural. Blessed to have access to ALWC and I tell everyone about it!

We love Abundant Life Wellness center! They help us get to the root cause and partner with us on our complete healing and wholeness.
I chose a rating of 10 because I feel as though we have an action plan to follow based upon the bloodwork results and the Zyto analysis. We want to get to the root cause of what's going on and now we have some direction to make that happen. Dr Trejo is kind, attentive and very knowledgeable.
Jennifer has helped my family more than words can say and I am very grateful for her and for the staff at Abundant Life! May the Lord guide and direct your lives ladies! Go in His wisdom and strength!!

More kids and adults with ADD/ADHD are using neurofeedback than any other problem. Experienced clinicians estimate that at a minimum, they have significant impact with 80-85% of these patients who complete 30-40 training sessions. Is it the most commonly treated because it’s the easiest problem to deal with? Not really. ADD/ADHD is often many different symptoms rolled into one diagnosis.
These must be sorted out as part of doing neurofeedback. There are some practical reasons that ADD/ADHD is the most common use for neurofeedback:
Many clinicians say generalized anxiety is one of the first symptoms to start responding to training. Significant improvements are typically estimated at 80-90% of people being trained. However, results also depend very much on what other disorders may exist. More complex cases that have multiple other problems may take more expertise and time to respond. We still expect that these more complex cases will respond to neurofeedback. However, they take more time, expertise, and clinical skills. That means not every clinician will achieve good results with these cases.
Autism, PDD, and RAD are the fastest growing areas of neurofeedback. The calming effects of neurofeedback produce noticeable results quickly in these severely-affected populations. Due to the extreme nature of Autism, significantly more time may be needed to see results.
Clinical reports from psychiatrists and psychologists indicate that neurofeedback helps patients with Bipolar Disorder become more stable and better able to reduce medications.
For chronic pain, neurofeedback helps reduce pain or perhaps how the brain manages pain, even in severe cases.
Even for long-term, non-responsive depression cases, neurofeedback typically helps alleviate symptoms. It can also help reduce multiple medications, which is not uncommon. Depression and dysthymia are among the more common conditions neurofeedback helps. This is not to say it’s easy. Clinical skills are important. There are a variety of protocol options, depending on the comorbidities associated with the client.
Multiple peer-reviewed studies show a reduction in seizures that are non-responsive to medications and that the training effect holds. This literature is compelling in respected journals, and the clinical reports consistently reflect improvement. But for several reasons, including a lack of funding to educate physicians, the research is not well known.
Over the last few years, two professionals in particular have published data about new brain training techniques they are using to target learning disabilities with qEEG. This was really big news for the field of neurofeedback. It’s common for reading, math and other problems to improve with neurofeedback and that is significantly helpful, but some clients could still have deficits after neurofeedback training. By adding in this new technique of coherence training, a fairly sophisticated component of training, several highly-reputed professionals are reporting more consistent improvements in dyslexia, reading and math deficits, and visual and auditory processing problems.
Therapists and doctors report that the frequency and intensity of migraines are often reduced and sometimes eliminated.
The first changes clients typically observe after receiving neurofeedback relate to sleep. This includes improvement in insomnia, bruxism, poor sleep quality, difficulty waking, frequent waking, and nightmares.
In one published study, neurofeedback was compared with a successful 12-step program for crack, cocaine, methamphetamine, and heroin users. Sustained abstinence was significantly greater (2 times or greater) with the group that also received neurofeedback training. Previous published studies show similar results for alcoholics. Substance abuse is an obvious form of poor self-regulation and self-medication.
Neuropsychologists have reported that improvement with TBI often occurs even many years after the injury and that neural plasticity still exists. Emotional and behavioral improvements are significant for this group.
