Frequently Asked Questions
Frequently asked questions – FAQ. Here you will find the most frequently asked questions about neurofeedback training. If your question has not yet been answered, you will find our contact form below on this page.
Can my thoughts be read or even influenced during neurofeedback?
No! This is not possible at any time. You only train to better control your own thoughts. The electrodes are pure measuring instruments. They do not send any impulses to the brain. Nothing is influenced from outside!
How long does one session take?
As a rule, a training session lasts 60 minutes. This takes place as an individual session. Of these, 40 minutes are for the neurofeedback training and the remaining time for a relaxed arrival as well as pre- and debriefing of the training.
How many sessions make sense?
This depends on the respective complaint pattern or training objective. As a rule, sustainable effects occur after 15 – 20 sessions. For many patients, approx. 30 training sessions are conducted. Of course, each patient is considered individually and a decision is then made on how many further sessions or training adjustments would make sense.
How regularly do I have to do the training?
It is recommended to train the first 6 – 8 weeks (if possible) 2 times a week. After the starting time you can change the training rhythm to once a week.
If 10 or more training sessions have already been held, it is also no problem if you are on holiday for 1 or 2 weeks or cannot make an appointment due to time constraints.
Do I have to prepare for a training?
No! No special preparation is necessary.
Are there any limitations for me after a training session?
No! All activities can be done normally, no matter if driving, learning or sports! Also the hairstyle remains intact.
How are the electrodes attached to the head?
This is done with small, saltwater-soaked sponges on the scalp. The small salt water residues are almost invisible and can be easily removed after training.
Is it possible to bring a companion?
Of course! There is enough space in our training rooms. Both during the initial consultation and during the training itself.
Do I have to book a fixed number of trainings?
No. We do not require you to commit to a certain number of sessions in advance. It is planned from session to session and the therapy can be easily suspended or cancelled at any time.
Are there any side effects?
No side effects are known from research or personal experience. Some people describe a certain fatigue after training, but it does not last long.
