Check out my interview with Bryan Carroll CTP, NTP, FAFS on his Summit for Wellness Podcast! It was great fun.

09- Neurofeedback with Katie Packwood

Neurofeedback with Katie Packwood

The brain is like a very powerful computer, and if some of the electrical signals aren’t functioning properly, then it can override the system. There are ways to test which signals are working or not, and this is where the power of neurofeedback comes in.

Neurofeedback gives a practitioner the ability to map your brain and see which brain waves are overworking or underworking. By utilizing this map, the practitioner is able to create protocols to help reorganize the way the brain is functioning. This process is what Katie discusses in this episode of Neurofeedback with Katie Packwood!
