Hello Sparrow, hope all is well with you, and your family has settled since your move. I was wondering where it is that you get this therapy. I had a closed head injury and find that sometime I am still posturing with my hands, feet and head, this is due to the brain injury, I am wondering if the biofeedback would help with this?

Neurofeedback Therapy Is Now Covered By DVA For Treatment Plan For Depression and Anxiety

Definition of Neurofeedback is a type of biofeedback that measures brain waves or brain blood flow to produce a signal that can be used as feedback on brain activity to teach self-regulation. Feedback is commonly provided using video or sound, with positive feedback for desired brain activity and negative feedback for brain activity that is undesirable. NON PAINFUL FEEDBACK ~ IT ISN'T SHOCK THERAPY!
 
Neurofeedback (NFB), also called neurotherapy or neurobiofeedback, is a type of biofeedback that uses realtime displays of electroencephalography (EEG) or hemoencephalography (HEG) to illustrate brain activity and teach self-regulation. EEG neurofeedback uses sensors that are placed on the scalp to measure brain waves, while HEG neurofeedback uses infrared (IR) sensors or functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) to measure brain blood flow.
 
On a personal note, I have been having Nuerofeedback Therapy for over a year and a half ~ with positive  measurable results. If a Veteran is interested in this therapy speak with your Psychologist or Psychiatrist for a referral to a clinic. DVA covers all expenses for this therapy.
