  • Neurofeedback for Insomnia and Other Sleep Problems

    Neurofeedback for Insomnia and Other Sleep ProblemsBrain training with neurofeedback for insomnia and other sleep problems is dear to my heart. It was my own difficulty with sleep that led to my becoming a NeurOptimal® neurofeedback trainer in 2004. If you’re interested in that story, it’s at the top of the Client Comments page of New York Neurofeedback’s website.

    Dr. Ed O’Malley is my go to person regarding sleep. He’s board certified in sleep medicine and has conducted research using NeurOptimal® that demonstrates clearly how effective we trainers know it is. His study showed that amount and quality of study participants’ sleep improved greatly. Most reduced or completely went off sleep medications.

    Falling asleep in a normal 15 minutes or so certainly beats hours of tossing and turning. Falling asleep “the minute your head hits the pillow” is typically a sign of sleep deprivation or poor quality sleep. Both quantity and quality can improve.

    Waking up in the middle of the night and going quickly back to sleep is bliss for people for whom it used to take an hour or more.

    Neurofeedback for Insomnia and Other Sleep ProblemsThe kind of results Ed wrote about are what my clients report to me.

    It’s very rewarding doing this work. When sleep gets better, pretty much everything gets better.
