Discover the Power of Neurofeedback for Optimal Brain Function. Neurofeedback is a non-invasive, drug-free treatment that uses personalized brainwave training to improve mood, energy, focus, sleep, and more. By tapping into the brain's innate potential for self-regulation, Neurofeedback fosters symptom reduction and enhanced functioning. Through interactive sessions and real-time feedback, you can experience the transformative effects of this cutting-edge technique. Welcome to a world where your brain's well-being takes center stage with Neurofeedback.
NEUROFEEDBACK HAS BEEN SUCCESSFULLY APPLIED IN THE TREATMENT OF:
Symptoms of PTSD
Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)s
Concussions and Traumatic Brain Injuries
Anger and Rage
Migraines and Headaches
Neurofeedback (NFB) is a type of biofeedback in which a brain-based training tool is used to optimize brain function. A non-invasive, drug-free treatment that encourages the brain to develop healthier patterns of activity. A type of biofeedback that uses the brain’s own potential and capacity to self-regulate to improve mood, energy, clarity, sleep, performance, focus, and more. Neurofeedback is an interactive experience between the brain and the body supporting connection. Sensors are placed on the scalp to read real-time brain-wave activity. The brainwave activity is then reflected to the person through visual, auditory, and tactile feedback, creating a mirror. This allows the brain to make corrections. The individual then experiences symptom reduction and improved functioning as the brain achieves more desirable states. Neurofeedback is customized for each brain based on presenting symptoms and identified goals. A comprehensive screening allows the technician to understand specific individual goals and develop protocols based on each client's unique needs.
One of the key reasons Neurofeedback is so effective is because it addresses both arousal and attention, two key underlying factors in many psychiatric diagnoses.

**If you are considering Neurofeedback, it is important to weigh the costs and benefits. Neurofeedback is a safe and effective treatment that has been shown to be helpful for a variety of conditions. However, it is important to note that Neurofeedback is not a cure-all and it may not be effective for everyone.
WHAT IS NEUROFEEDBACK
Neurofeedback strengthens, calms, stabilizes and restores the brain. Just like the muscles in your body, your brain needs training too. The overall goal of Neurofeedback is to improve neurological flexibility. The brain is optimally set up to shift easily between states, from sleep to relaxation, to calm alert, and to high alert when necessary.
We use a 19-channel swLoreta Z Score Neurofeedback system that supports training many areas of the brain at once. Surface and deep structures of the brain are looked at and trained, alleviating unwanted symptoms and optimizing performance in life.
Loreta scanning provides an estimate of the location and function of the deep brain regions like the anterior cingulate, insula, and fusiform gyrus. It produces a three-dimensional image of the brain that corresponds to and looks like the images in fMRI.
Z Score means your brain waves are scored or compared against age-matched controls to show whether they are normal or abnormal.
qEEG Electroencephalography (EEG) is the measurement of electrical patterns at the surface of the scalp, which reflect cortical activity (brainwaves). A Quantitative EEG (qEEG) is the analysis of the digitized EEG, also referred to as “Brain Mapping.”
We look at your reported symptoms and conduct a non-invasive qEEG which is a 3-D brain map. This process is entirely passive, and no electrical stimulation will be inputed into your brain. This results in a collection of data on the performance of your neural pathways. This is done by placing a cap on your head with 19 electrodes. We can look at areas of the brain that are over or under active. From there we create training protocols that are most effective to train your brain to function more efficiently.
LORETA Z-Score Neurofeedback involves watching a movie or playing a game to train your brain to improve in identified challenged areas. The feedback provides rewards that motivate your brain to change. Results can look like increased clarity and processing, improving memory and learning, resilience, healthier daily functioning, and emotional regulation.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
The number of Neurofeedback sessions required varies depending on the individual and the condition being treated. In general, it takes 20-40 sessions to see significant improvement. Most clients need 30-40 Neurofeedback sessions. An additional qEEG will be facilitated after 20 sessions. Training requires a minimum of two sessions per week during the early stages of the program. Depending on how the brain is responding, clients can sometimes taper their sessions off until they finish the program.
In general, the results are permanent. Once the brain has been properly trained, brainwaves like to stay where they are. After a client’s brain has gone through our neuro-conditioning program, results seem to stick. Should there be a head injury, extreme stress, a serious disease, etc., occasionally, an additional 5-10 “booster sessions” might be recommended in order to remind the brain where its sweet spot is.
Neurofeedback is a safe and effective treatment that has been shown to be helpful for a variety of conditions, including:
depression, anxiety, panic, sleep disorders, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), personality disorders, addictions, unresolved emotional issues, and more. It is also an effective treatment for the disorders of early childhood, such as attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), pervasive developmental disorders (PDD), reactive attachment disorder (RAD), autism spectrum disorder (ASD), learning disorders, and obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD).
In ADHD, Neurofeedback can help to improve attention, focus, and impulse control. In anxiety disorders, Neurofeedback can help to reduce anxiety and improve relaxation. In depression, Neurofeedback can help to improve mood and motivation. In epilepsy, Neurofeedback can help to reduce seizures. In learning disabilities, Neurofeedback can help to improve focus and concentration. In sleep disorders, Neurofeedback can help to improve sleep quality and reduce insomnia. In traumatic brain injury, Neurofeedback can help to improve cognitive function and reduce symptoms such as headaches, dizziness, and fatigue.
HOW LONG DO THE EFFECTS LAST?
SOME OF THE BENEFITS INCLUDE
Improved attention and focus: Neurofeedback can help to improve attention and focus in people with ADHD. This is because Neurofeedback can help to train the brain to produce more alpha waves, which are associated with attention and focus.
Reduced anxiety: Neurofeedback can help to reduce anxiety in people with anxiety disorders. This is because Neurofeedback can help to train the brain to produce more beta waves, which are associated with relaxation and calmness.
Improved mood: Neurofeedback can help to improve mood in people with depression. This is because Neurofeedback can help to train the brain to produce more gamma waves, which are associated with happiness and motivation.
Increased learning and memory: Neurofeedback can help to increase learning and memory in people with learning disabilities. This is because Neurofeedback can help to train the brain to produce more theta waves, which are associated with learning and memory.
Improved sleep: Neurofeedback can help to improve sleep in people with sleep disorders. This is because Neurofeedback can help to train the brain to produce more delta waves, which are associated with deep sleep.
There are two main types of Neurofeedback:
QEEG-based Neurofeedback: This type of Neurofeedback uses a quantitative electroencephalogram (QEEG) to measure brain activity. The QEEG is a type of brain scan that measures the electrical activity of the brain. The QEEG data is then used to create a personalized Neurofeedback plan. A QEEG is important to avoid overtraining the brain that could result in side effects and without therapeutic benefit.
Neurofeedback without QEEG: This type of Neurofeedback does not use a QEEG. Instead, the practitioner uses their experience and knowledge to create a personalized Neurofeedback plan.
