Treatment starts with an assessment session, where the specific requirements of the patient are determined. In this session, the patient is given a belt that monitors breathing. In addition, the patient will receive a cap with sensors that allow the technician to read the patient’s brain waves.
In the Neurofeedback sessions, the same cap and belt are utilized. The patient will then watch a movie that stops when the brain waves and breathing are not in sync. When the movie stops, the patient needs to focus on his breathing to correct and returned to a balanced state for the movie to resume.
