Neurofeedback Treatment

Personalized Neurofeedback Makes a Difference

Understanding that every situation is unique, our Neurofeedback treatment plans are individually tailored to our patients’ needs.

Our Approach

Over 16 million people in the U.S. suffer from depression.1 And more than 4 million people are not satisfied with their current treatment with antidepressant medication.2

TMS (Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation) Therapy is an advanced technique that uses pulsed magnetic technology, similar to MRI-strength magnet, to stimulate areas of the brain that have low metabolic activity. The process helps invigorate the brain’s natural ability to build new or improve the function of networks that control mood and behavior, which provides relief from depression.

Each person also completes a minimum of a 7-day sleep assessment called Actigraphy as well. This process allows the therapist to look at sleep/wake behaviors to see if this could explain some of the symptoms we are seeing.

From this assessment, the therapist will develop a treatment program that is most likely to help with the person’s symptoms.20

Advantages of Neurofeeback

 100% free of medication side effects

 Non-invasive (does not involve surgery or anesthesia or sedation)

 Non-systemic (does not travel through the bloodstream like a medication)

 Has minimal side-effects

 Facilitates natural learning – through active participation (i.e. the client is changing their own brain behavior, not the Neurofeedback device)

 Unlike medications that typically lose their effect over time, long-term, sustainable effects can be achieved in a short period of time (usually 3 months)

 Improves sleep quality and efficiency for overall improved health and well being

 Can often reduce or eliminate the need for medications for the symptoms of ADHD

 Results in brain activity improvements that are significant and long lasting

The underlying causes of inattention, hyperactivity, impulsiveness or sleep difficulties are not typically the same in any two patients. Because of this, we create our treatment plans based on the unique brain activity levels of the person, whether a child, adolescent or adult.
