Unveiling the Hidden Symphony: How ISF Neurofeedback may help Menstrual Harmony

By: Olivia Kalinich, LMHC Anecdotally, we have had many clients regulate their menstrual cycles through ISF neurofeedback. We have helped with fertility issues, pre-menstrual depression/anxiety, and other pre-menstrual physiological symptoms like cramps, nausea, and migraines. How is that possible? It sounds a bit hyperbolic doesn’t it? Well actually, the claim is grounded in the behavioral […]

Unlocking the Secrets of Emotional Well-being: The Pregenual Anterior Cingulate Cortex

By: Olivia Kalinich, LMHC Emotional well-being plays a crucial role in our overall quality of life, affecting our relationships, productivity, and mental health. One fascinating area of the brain that has been implicated in the literature as being associated with an overall general positive sense of well-being is the pregenual anterior cingulate cortex (pgACC), a […]

Pain, the Triple Network, and Infraslow sLORETA Neurofeedback

Pain for most is experienced as a unitary sensory phenomenon. But in fact, pain is more complex. It is both an unpleasant sensory and emotional experience related to actual or potential tissue damage. It consists of two components: physical pain (painfulness) and psychological pain (suffering). It is processed in cortex by three distinct but interconnected […]

The Research on Neurofeedback for Chronic Pain

Have you ever been in chronic pain? What differentiates acute pain from chronic pain? Chronic pain persists after treatment has been provided. The pain can last from weeks to years and may be the cause of serious life consequences, including employment trouble, relationship issues, and mental health problems.

I am a registered psychotherapist and occupational therapist who is board certified in neurofeedback. My clients tend to be military veterans who are highly hypervigilant or utterly burned out from years of hypervigilance. More than a few of my clients have been “sleeping” fully clothed in a recliner chair and waking up several times per […]

Recent Article Finds that ISF Neurofeedback Training Promotes Sleep

A recent study by Bekker et al. (2021) investigated the effect of infraslow neurofeedback therapy on sleep and identified significant positive change in sleep duration, latency, efficiency and overall sleep quality. A poor night’s sleep can wreak significant damage on physical health, mental health, and emotional well-being. Even one night without sleep can result in […]

The Benefits of Infraslow Neurofeedback Training

There are many types of psychotherapy including psychotherapies that help patients change behaviors or thought patterns, psychotherapies that help patients explore the effect of past relationships and experiences on present behaviors, and psychotherapies that are tailored to help solve other problems in specific ways. For example, when using cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), a common type […]

Why Does ISF Training Need Special Equipment?

In conventional neurofeedback we reward the increasing or the inhibiting of a targeted metric or bandwidth. This can be done because of the nature of the signal and equipment we use to measure it. The regular cycling of the sinusoidal signal can be measured by an alternating current amplifier. Tin and gold sensors can hold […]

How Does ISF Impact the Brain and Body?

Researchers have proposed that the ISF is generated from two possible sources: Neuronal activity (electrical or mechanical stimulation, neurotransmitters, neuronal activity). Neuronal activity results in decreased oxygen. This stimulates calcium waves. Spontaneous activity (astrocyte clock gene expression results in calcium waves). The production of calcium waves induces oscillation in a type of glial cell called […]

How is ISF Different Than Other Neurofeedback?

The distinctive impact of ISF neurofeedback resides in the training of the “ISF band” which is below 1 Hertz. The physiological changes and regulation of the autonomic nervous system that we see in ISF training occur simply because those are the functions that are coordinated by that band. ISF is considered an ‘organizing’ rhythm; promoting […]
