Dear One;

The World Health Organization reports a global brain disease epidemic. Millions of people worldwide suffer from cognitive decline and related symptoms associated with learned cognitive dysfunction. Regrettably clients are led astray by practitioners and prescriptions that focus on symptoms instead of the cause.


The Biofeedback Institute of Los Angeles (BILA) has a solution. Biofeedback skills can help people who suffer with memory challenges, attention deficit, brain fog, pain, anxiety, migraine and more, address the root nervous system causes associated with perfornamnce decline.

Biofeedback & Neurofeedback Skills Training programs can teach people to address health challenges based on the principles of psycho-physiology, mind and body.  Training participants learn to manage and overcome dysfunctional habits that compromise thinking, feeling, emotion and self-regulation.

BILA's 45 year legacy is based on thousands of success stories and healing journeys. Professional emotional support augments the quality and lasting benefits of bio/neurofeedback training.  We look forward to helping you along your healing journey.

Do I need a license or government registration?

No.  Although you don’t need special permission to use biofeedback, it is a good idea to pursue certified skills training especially if you are thinking about using biofeedback in professional practice. 


What are the side effects of Biofeedback & Neurofeedback Training?

For some people the effect of neurofeedback training can bring to mind unfamiliar, uncomfortable and deeply personal emotions.  Trainees sometimes feel vulnerable, uneasy and fatigued after neurofeedback training. As the trainees’ brain integrates new behaviors and builds new pathways and connections, a challenging healing process ensues. 


What is Neurocoaching? 

Neurocoaching is a process of self discovery that deepens self awareness.  This inner-cize cultivates ongoing reflection, study and practice and expedites neurofeedback trainees’ spiritual development. Successful trainees increase self awareness which leads to improved self-control.  Adept trainees voluntarily calm and or activate their nervous system; They are able to relax, soften and release tension. Instinctively, trainees are guided to replace competition, aggression and division with compassion, kindness, responsibility and life sustaining thinking. 


How will it affect you?

Neurocoaching focuses on personal spiritual growth  - a key to enriching universal consciousness. Your own personal growth will enhance the spiritual evolution of humanity more than anything else. People can grow and change by applying the way of Gandhi: “If we could change ourselves, the tendencies in the world would also change. As a man changes his own nature, so does the attitude of the world change towards him.”

What is Biofeedback?

Biofeedback is a scientific means of physiological assessment and training. It allows people to train their nervous system (brain and body) and to become increasingly aware of body sensations.  This insight empowers people to improve their health. Subtle changes in the body can help clients manage and reduce pain. Clients who have anxiety and hold tension become aware of associated body holding patterns and learn to relax.

How does biofeedback work?

Biosensors placed on the head and body reflect subtle internal changes. These signals are  processed and with software can generate moment-to-moment feedback in the form of auditory, visual, or tactile rewards. The feedback signals allow trainees to make changes and improve their condition. A common biosensor records electrical activity in muscles.


Software transforms muscle activity into auditory or visual signals, which are transmitted back to the trainee when the muscles move. The trainee can learn to let go of muscle tension by interacting with the display.

What is Neurofeedback?

Neurofeedback is biofeedback for your brain.  It helps people improve executive skills like thinking, planing and impulse control. Neurofeedback is also used by athletes, executives, trainers and high level performers for creativity, calming, meditation psychological integration and transcendence.
