Has anyone experienced Neurofeedback? What was the reason you chose Neurofeedback as a modality? Did you have success with Neurofeedback? Did you look into Brainwave Optimization (

I've been working as a Brain Trainer with Neurofeedback since 2002 and I can assure you that it really works. I dedicated my professional life to this discipline and I'm in love with it. Just find a certified and qualified practitioner!
Personally I do not recommend Brain State Technologies, they are a rip off. You may find the same and some times better services at a fraction of the cost.
Wish you the best!

You are 100% correct, and it is frightening to see "Brain State Technologies, they are a rip off" Flying under the radar, and WHAT THE HELL are they doing posting under the Mayo Clinic. They have 1229 views - this is SICK - and not in a positive way!!

As a Neurofeedback Therapist, it is my dream to find the most powerful machine that can transform people's life in a shortest period of time and keep them there in a good state for as long as possible.

I have gone through at least 4 different types of Neurofeedback machines personally including Infra low and found that Brain State Technology's machine is respectfully powerful both from my patients and myself. As a result, I only kept BrainMaster and Brain State two equipment.

Recent double blind study has found statistical significance in areas such as INSOMNIA, TBI, PTSD, MIGRAINE etc using Brain State Technology's Brainwave Optimization (BWO). Results are quite impressive.

I highly recommend Brain State's beginner's training as well. I knew quite a few psychologists who came back with Neurofeedback machine, but did not know how to do and what to do with it, ended up mistakenly placing sensors on O2 while should have been on P4...I agree with you that credential is important, but well trained therapist is a lot more important. Brain State provides one of the best trainings for beginner Neurofeedback practitioner. I also recommend trainings provided by Dr. Souta from New Mind as well.

For Competitive athletes training, you will be very impressed of BWO's result. Give it a try and you will be very happy about the result, and I wish you well and hopefully you can write a follow up comments about your training result with BST, which is the only responsible way to make comment after you personally tried it first.

Hopefully other NFB therapists are more grammatically correct and less a shill for BST. FAIL.

I totally agree with you that certification and qualified practitioner is the way to go

Virtually every VA Hospital in the USA and tens of thousands of Clinicians in 85 Countries use Biofeedback and Neurofeedback instrumentation. The company listed above is not FDA registered and has zero credential requirements. Indeed, Please read about how NASA uses Psychophysiology - see

Neurofeedback is a powerful proven modality. I have been a provider since 2006. It was the major factor in breaking my son's drug addiction. I have witnessed NFB change many lives with no adverse effects. NFB is a tool to allow the brain to establish homeostasis and optimize its function. Do your research. Check out, read Jim Robbins book, A Symphony in the Brain, google neurofeedback. Be informed and ask questions. Brainwave optimization is neurofeedback.

I began exploring Neurofeedback as an anxiety sufferer in the early 2000s. The treatment is so effective when done twice a week (bi-polar montages and the Peniston protocol) that I was completely off my anti-anxiety drugs and feeling calm and in the moment at times when I would have been quite anxious in only several months.

I now consider myself a hobbyist and own my own electroencephalograph and some software to use it for feedback. I use it to train neuronal patterns such as these:

Les Fehmi PhD and Jim Hardt PhD are two long time practitioners who also use their equipment to help people attain states of meditative calm. Quite interesting work!

Neurofeedback is a type of biofeedback training with proven efficacy for several disorders, including ADHD and epilepsy. Since neurofeedback
training is complex and can result in side effects, patients should seek board-certified practitioners. The Biofeedback Certification International Alliance (BCIA) has certified biofeedback and neurofeedback professionals for 30 years. As the only internationally-recognized non-profit certifying institute for our field, BCIA maintains rigorous ethical and continuing education standards. We strongly agree with the previous author’s recommendation that readers seek a board-certified neurofeedback provider and provide a searchable directory at Please visit our website to learn more about our certification programs at

After years of trying everything for depression, anxiety and probably too much alcohol, I found a solution in Brainwave Optimization. Talk therapy gave superficial relief. Neurofeedback registered a "3" on a scale of 1-10 and took too much time. In 10 sessions of Brainwave Optimization, I am off all anti-depressants and living life with grace, calm and consciousness. I highly recommend it!

Brainwave Optimization ( has helped over 50,000 people through nearly 200 providers in 18 countries. Providers are certified through the NTCB and AAPB with more affiliations solidifying. Clinical trials and studies being performed by accredited institutions, such as Wake Forest, have been proving the efficacy of this non-invasive process.
