When we form habits, we are actually rewiring our brains. Some habits, like exercise or meditation, are healthy and constructive. Others, like smoking, are dangerous and destructive yet difficult to break. If you’ve tried to quit smoking many times without success, neurofeedback therapy could be the answer. 

During neurofeedback therapy, we use qEEG brain mapping to take a snapshot of your brain and target the areas that are out of sync and stuck in addictive patterns. This non-invasive method provides valuable information about how your brain functions and can be used to get it back in rhythm. It can also help you remain calmer and more focused, making it easier to refrain from the bad habits you now rely on to cope.  

How Brain Mapping Teaches New Habits

The brain bio-sensors used in brain mapping do not send anything into your brain. Instead, it picks up brain signals and produces the feedback to help you train your brain to work better. Through this process, your brain learns to produce more of the desired pattern and less of the undesired one. This includes reducing cravings and the stress associated with dealing with addition. In essence, you’re training yourself to no longer need or want to smoke. It’s similar to what physical exercise does to strengthen and tone certain muscles in your body.
