Neurofeedback and biofeedback therapies are not far from each other, but they are not the same thing, so let’s see what the difference is! Basically, neurofeedback therapy and Quantum biofeedback are so-called non-invasive treatment protocols that can treat various problems without the use of drugs. Neurofeedback is essentially a special type of biofeedback that gives feedback on brain activity.
Neurofeedback or Quantum biofeedback
The pioneering and revolutionary technology of Quantum biofeedback is able to assess and analyse the current state of the living human body by detecting electrophysiological vibrations and supporting the body’s self-healing processes.
Biofeedback therapies use EEG, EMG and ECG chips to detect brain, heart and skin and muscle function, while neurofeedback therapy focuses on measuring, analysing and improving brain function, using only EEG sensors on the head.
What is neurofeedback
To briefly summarise what neurofeedback is, we can say that it is a type of biofeedback that is used to specifically understand, analyse and correct brain waves.
Neurofeedback is also called EEG-Biofeedback. While Quantum biofeedback also measures pulse, temperature, brain functions, neurofeedback focuses on brain activity.
What is Quantum biofeedback
To understand how Quantum biofeedback works, we need to know what biofeedback is. The English word is translated as biological feedback.
It is a therapeutic system based on biofeedback that gives you a picture, a feedback of the body’s functioning and current state. Sensors placed at different points on the body measure electrophysiological responses, which are otherwise different in the event of stress or health problems.
Based on the results obtained, it is possible to make changes at the physiological level that can improve the functioning of the body, alleviate complaints, reduce stress and achieve physical and mental well-being.
How neurofeedback works
During neurofeedback therapy, sensors placed on the patient’s head monitor brain waves in real time.
It basically distinguishes between four different types of brainwaves, delta, theta, alpha and beta. Each of these occurs at a different frequency and is characteristic of a different state of consciousness. The delta waves are the slowest waves, usually occurring during sleep. The theta waves are slightly faster than the delta, but they are also slow and predominate when we are sleepy or when our mind is wandering or daydreaming.
Alpha brain waves are also slow, but they are more prevalent when we are in a calm but energetic state of relaxation. Beta brain waves occur mainly when the brain is actively engaged in some activity or problem solving. If a person has too many slow waves, the brain cannot function at the right capacity.
Neurofeedback therapy devices can help patients learn to create more productive brain waves by monitoring brain waves. They can better control their emotions, attention and behaviour.
The side effects of neurofeedback are no more a problem than the side effects of biofeedback, as both are non-invasive, comfortable therapies that can be used by almost anyone.
Neurofeedback focuses specifically on the brain, while biofeedback focuses on the whole body.
How Quantum biofeedback works
In Eastern medicine, it has long been known that by observing your body and meditating, it is possible to modify your breathing, heartbeat or pain sensation for better well-being.
The Quantum biofeedback device is a system of hardware, special software and highly sensitive sensors that measures, analyses and displays the body’s electrophysiological responses and involves the patient in self-healing processes.
By measuring biological functions and making conscious changes, we can improve our own condition.
Which approach is right for me
Of the biofeedback and neurofeedback therapies, it can be said that neurofeedback is preferable if you specifically want to train the brain for a particular reason. These can be memory problems, attention disorders, headaches, insomnia, ADHD and basically problems for which neurofeedback can be an effective therapy. The aim of neurofeedback is to break the mind-body gap and enable patients to generate more efficient brainwaves that are needed in many areas of life.
To answer the question of whether biofeedback or neurofeedback is what someone needs, the individual needs of the patient must be considered first and foremost! For example, while neurofeedback therapy may be more effective for memory problems, biofeedback therapy is more recommended for depression and associated physical symptoms.
Benefits of neurofeedback
Neurofeedback therapy can be beneficial for the treatment of difficult to treat conditions, disorders and symptoms where medication may have limited or temporary results, but may have a number of side effects.
It can teach the patient to generate the right brainwaves that support a full, holistic life in the long term.
The benefits of neurofeedback can be realised for the following conditions:
- autism spectrum disorder
- memory problems
- concentration problems
- anxiety, stress, depression
Benefits of Quantum biofeedback
The benefits of Quantum biofeedback are that it can be used to treat a wide range of disorders, conditions and symptoms, particularly those related to stress and anxiety.
The benefits of biofeedback are well known:
- in the treatment of anxiety, stress
- treatment of asthma
- treating ADHD,
- side effects of chemotherapy
- high blood pressure
- panic attacks
- for irritable bowel syndrome
- muscle and joint pain
Biofeedback helps the body’s self-healing processes from the very first, physiological level, without drugs, interventions or pain!
