Contraindications - Bay Area Brain Spa


Neurofeedback considerations

None. Safe for all brains and all ages.  If you are taking medications, you should consult with your doctor as you accumulate sessions with brain training as we’ve seen clients need to adjust dosing as they progress with training.

See note on healing reactions.
