What is Neurofeedback?
Neurofeedback (also known as Neurotherapy and EEG biofeedback) has been used by medical professionals for over 50 years to help a wide range of disorders. Neurofeedback, meaning ‘brain’ and ‘input,’ specifically monitors and measures brain wave activity to identify irregularities. Once identified, the computer monitors the abnormal brain waves and rewards the individual when the abnormal brain waves improve, training/guiding the brain waves back into a healthy pattern. With repetition of this process over time, the brain will learn to stay in healthy ranges without the aid of the computer.
The result is an improvement in brain regulation, which in turn can reduce or eliminate symptoms. Unlike many other treatments that address the symptoms of disorders, neurofeedback therapy trains brainwaves to alter the structure and function of the brain. Many patients report permanent positive changes to their behavior months and years after ending the therapy.
What is the process?
1. Run A Brain Map
The first step is to record an image of the brain using a qEEG. This non-invasive process involves recording your brainwaves for 2 minutes with your eyes open and 2 more minutes with your eyes closed.
2. Analyze Results
Your brain recording is uploaded to a database and compared to similar individuals with healthy brain activity. Cognitive and emotional issues are identified, as well as irregular brainwave patterns. Customized training protocols are created to show the areas of the brain to train into healthy patterns.
3. Neurofeedback Sessions
Training sessions are usually 30 minutes and pleasant. You watch a movie or listen to the music of your choice while wearing photic light glasses. Brainwaves are monitored, and using operant conditioning, the stimuli are adjusted to help guide them back into healthy patterns.
We offer a customized nutritional program to accompany neurofeedback treatments that optimizes brain health and function.
“My son with ADHD tried medication for three months–he lost 10 pounds! He looked like a skeleton. After only four Neurofeedback sessions, the teacher said that he was participating in class and doing so much better. Would I recommend Neurofeedback to my friends and family? Yes, yes, yes!”
“My ADD symptoms began in middle school. I tried medication and focus websites. After on 5 Neurofeedback sessions, I noticed an increase in my ability to relax and do homework for a longer period of time.”
“After 20 sessions of neurofeedback, my short-term memory and focus have improved. I’m doing better in school and getting better grades.”

Going back to school in the fall is a normal routine for children. Usually this time corresponds to different anxieties accompanied by excitement or dread, potentially both. As children and their families prepare for
Autism and Neurofeedback
Recent epidemiological studies show that 1 in every 44 children has autism in the United States today. With that being said, many parents are challenged to enhance their child’s social skills, communication mechanisms, attention, and
