Neurofeedback and Biofeedback

Biofeedback and Neurofeedback Board Certifications

Dr. Stetz is one of the few board-certified practitioners in Hawaii. That is, she can  help you train your brain and your body for your goal behavior/s by providing feedback from both your brain and your body. She attended the most rigorous and prestigious training facilities (BCIA) and train others interested in this beautiful field.

Neurofeedback

Neurofeedback or EEG biofeedback is possible when Dr. Stetz puts sensors on your head to capture your brainwaves and where they are localized. Her clients learn how to engage and manipulate their own brain waves to produce the ones needed. This is possible with the help of visual and auditory display/ cues (virtual reality game).

Biofeedback

Biofeedback is essentially like Neurofeedback. The difference is that the information is coming directly from the peripheral neurosystem (e.g., body) than the central one (brain). Since our nervous system helps us relax and focus, this process is very useful as well.

Brain Waves

 Our brains are like motors in a car. Meaning, they can go slow or fast. If your brain doesn't generate much electric power (Hertz), you will be ready to fall asleep. If your brainwaves are fast, you will be able to do a lot of things, blot of things BUT will eventually get exhausted, depressed, etc. 

Brain Lobes

 Your brain has four main lobes/ sections. Each lo be is responsible for a different behavior. For example, executive functioning takes place in the frontal lobe. 

Brain Map

 Your brain is a map. Neurofeedback therapists read your brain waves via electroencephalograms to identify your main brain waves and thpeir localization. This information is crucial for an effective training towards the goal behavior.
