NEUROFEEDBACK

Train Your Brain – Change Your Life

 

Neurofeedback is brain-training that helps you function at your best by allowing the brain to function optimally 

 

  • Quiets the mind

  • Increases brain efficiency and flexibility

  • Retrains for “present moment” processing rather than focus on old traumas or future worries

  • Symptoms associated with chronic pain, AD(H)D, anxiety, headaches, addiction, Autism Spectrum Disorders, PTSD, OCD, trauma, Sensory Processing disorders may improve

  • Increases clarity, focus and inner calm 

  • Decreases reactivity, distractability, agitation

 

The American Pediatric Academy has endorsed neurofeedback as a “Level 1/Best Support” treatment for children with ADHD.

 

Our brains get ‘stuck in a rut’, limited by habitual, inefficient patterns that may stem from injury, trauma, toxicity, and other stressors.  

 

CHILDREN & TEENS

 

Neurofeedback is especially effective for kids and teens.  For ADD/ADHD, scholastic performance, social skills, OCD; neurofeedback can help your kids' brains to 'fire and rewire' more efficiently, improve focus and reduce distractibility.

 

Neurofeedback training may create quantum shifts in learning capacity - an organized, focused brain processes and remembers information more easily.

 

Better learning and reduced stress allows for more teachable moments.  A calm, efficient brain allows for positive social interactions that create better prospects for the future.

 

The clinic is a child friendly and supportive space with toys, books and a caring spirit of partnering with families to create emotional balance and ease.

 

 

Consider neurofeedback training for:

 

  • ADD/ADHD (Attention Deficit Disorder and Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity disorder)

  • ALCOHOLISM AND ADDICTIONS

  • ANXIETY/TRAUMA

  • AUTISM SPECTRUM/ASPERGER’S

  • CATASTROPHIC/NEGATIVE THINKING

  • CHEMO-Brain:  Post-Chemo Cognitive Impairment

  • CHRONIC PAIN

  • CONCUSSION

  • DEFIANCE AND CONDUCT DISORDERS OF CHILDREN

  • DEMENTIA AND AGE-RELATED DECLINES

  • DEPRESSION AND MOOD DISORDERS

  • FIBROMYALGIA 

  • HEADACHES

  • LOW SELF ESTEEM

  • OCD (Obsessive Compulsive Disorder)

  • PEAK PERFORMANCE LIMITATIONS

  • RELAPSE PREVENTION - ADDICTION

  • SEIZURE DISORDER

  • SUBSTANCE USE DISORDERS

  • INSOMNIA/SLEEP DISORDERS AND CHRONIC FATIGUE

  • TRAUMATIC BRAIN INJURY/STROKE

 

Neurofeedback is effective, free of side-effects, and effortless. Sensors placed on the head convey brainwaves (EEG) into a computer. The neurofeedback you receive is generated and customized by your EEG 'brainmap' and delivered auditorily through music. As you lie on the treatment table or recline comfortably with headphones on, short interruptions in the music alert the brain to 'fire and wire' more efficiently.  Your brain is effectively training itself for optimal function.

 

How Does It Work?

 

The Neurofeedback gives your brain information about what it’s doing and helps your brain to know when it is becoming unstable by going too ‘far out.’ Your brain uses that information to bring itself back. Then increasingly, it stays within those positive boundaries, becoming more flexible and resilient.  And the more flexible and resilient the brain waves, the fewer symptoms one has. Of anything (anxiety/headaches/pain...)

 

When the EEG shows diffuse, disorganized, inefficient turbulence in brainwave activity the computer imposes a slight interruption in the music. Alerted by the pauses to re-wire for greater efficiency, the brain generates self-correcting adjustments. Repetitive interruption of habitual stress patterns is followed by relaxation which retrains for much greater mental focus and function. Effortless integration of the ‘improved wiring’ is achieved. 

 

What Can I Expect?

 

You can expect to see a reduction in the frequency, intensity and duration of whatever it is you are wanting help with, whatever symptoms are challenging you.  And when your “ouch” symptoms do appear, it’s easier to come back from it.  It evens you out.

 

You might:

  • Feel less stressed

  • Feel more organized

  • Notice ease falling asleep

  • Feel less reactive

  • Have more good days than bad

 

  • Feel more focused

  • Feel happier, more smiley

  • Be less triggered, with fewer angry outbursts

  • Flow thru life more easily

  • Feel more open hearted


 

 

What about my medications?

 

As training progresses the need for medications is often reduced. Neurofeedback may potentiate (make more effective) medications so it’s important to communicate with the prescribing physician regarding progress and dosage levels.

 

How many sessions will I need?

Neurofeedbacking training is progressive and requires 10-40 sessions for life-long changes in optimal function. Neurofeedback does not change “who you are”, rather, it enhances each individual’s untapped potential.

Most everyone understands how a good diet and exercise regimen can increase longevity and improve strength and stamina. But what about your mental fitness? The fact is, your brain — just like your body — can be trained for greater performance and focus. A resilient and flexible brain improves our state of mind. And nothing impacts the quality of our lives more directly than our state of mind.

 

"In my opinion,

if any medication had demonstrated such a wide spectrum of efficacy (as neurofeedback)

it would be

universally accepted

and widely used."

“Neurofeedback with Carolyn was a game-changer. My son has gone off his ADD medications and is at ease in himself, at school and at home. A miracle.
