What is Infra Low Frequency training and how does it work?
Since its discovery in 2006, neurofeedback in the infra‐low frequency (ILF) region of the EEG spectrum (below 0.1 Hz) has matured into a therapeutic method applicable to the full spectrum of mental disorders. Pioneered by Sue and Siegfried Othmer of EEGInfo, the Cygnet software we use to train these low frequencies is the most widely used and technologically advanced in the industry.
Deep within your brain are networks which communicate at extremely low frequencies. They manage the second by second stability and flexibility of your brain, the platform which determines your reactions to the outside world. If those networks are not functioning well, you will exhibit the symptoms of that disregulation– sleepless nights, anxiety and depression, migraines, impulsivity, compulsivity, and far more.
Rather than impose a predetermined outcome based on comparisons to other brains, it is uniquely individual, informing the client of their own brain’s internal activity and allowing it to take that information to make adjustments in its own best performance. That is exactly how it is evolutionarily designed, it just needs good information. The technology is used to provide exactly that, your job as a client is to allow your brain to witness its changing dynamics and make the corrections needed for better function.
