Neurofeedback is not an instant process. It takes time for the brain to change and learn. Multiple sessions are required to see results. Often, once the brains is functioning more optimally with fewer symptoms, sessions can be reduced or eliminated.
There is no magic number. Just as every person is unique, the number of sessions will vary according to each person. Noticeable results typically occur between the third and tenth session. In general, 20 – 40 sessions are needed for the results to become permanent. Symptoms in some patients will resolve in a shorter time. Some require more training, some less. The goal is to complete enough sessions to ensure consistent and lasting benefits. A brain map can be generated at any time between sessions, so that you and your practitioner can visually see the progress your brain is making.
