How many sessions of neurofeedback are necessary?

People typically report they begin to experience improvements between sessions 1 and 5. The number of sessions needed varies from person to person. For some, as few as 10 to 15 sessions are needed. On average, between 20 and 40 sessions are needed in order for a long-lasting outcome to be achieved. The required number of treatments is contingent on factors such as severity and nature of the symptoms, genetics, diet, hydration, and sleep. Additionally, better outcomes are usually achieved when sessions are grouped together at the beginning of one’s regimen. Since neurofeedback is a learning process, it is recommended an individual undergoes 2 to 3 sessions per week to start. A titration down to once or twice per week is then warranted.
