Any woman who has suffered symptoms of premenstrual syndrome (PMS) – and studies show that 85 percent of women experience at least one symptom – knows that it can be very uncomfortable and disruptive.

While PMS is obviously a common experience, its combination of symptoms is unique to each woman. Assaulted by the body’s dramatic hormonal shifts, the central nervous system becomes deregulated. This causes further disruption – to energy, sleep, focus, mood and attention, among other activities, and these disruptions can compound existing conditions, such as anger, migraine or seizure disorder.

Because neurofeedback trains the brain to operate with greater stability and control, it can significantly reduce the symptoms of PMS. In many cases, women seek neurofeedback for another condition – say, anxiety or a sleep disorder – and the reduction of PMS symptoms is an unanticipated benefit of their brain training.
