Treating Insomnia With Neurofeedback

What is Insomnia?

Insomnia is defined as an inability to get to sleep or to stay asleep, but people often experience insomnia in different ways. Some may find it difficult to fall asleep in the first place while others may wake up too early and be unable to get back to sleep despite still feeling tired. There are many possible causes of insomnia, including psychiatric or medical conditions, unhealthy sleeping habits, medications and other substances, and more. Whatever the cause, sufferers of insomnia may experience one or more of the following symptoms:

  • Low energy or fatigue
  • Mood disturbances
  • Problems with concentration
  • Decline in school or work performance

Treating Insomnia With Neurofeedback

Neurofeedback gives the patient the ability to interact with his or her own brain patterns in real time, allowing for changes in specific activity areas and even changes in the types of brainwaves being used. By promoting improved self regulation of the brain, neurofeedback encourages the patient’s brain to normalize sleep patterns, resulting in more regular and restful sleep. Even patients who did not complain about poor sleep prior to starting neurofeedback have reported better sleep through this groundbreaking biofeedback therapy.

Other factors that can influence sleep include the following:

  • Consumption of caffeine
  • Consumption of alcohol
  • Behavioral factors
  • Sleep apnea
  • Etc.
