Neurotherapy is brain exercise in which a clinician will observe your brain in action from moment to moment by monitoring your brain waves. We show you your brain activity and we help you to change it by rewarding shifts toward a more appropriate and stable brain state. It is a gradual learning process.
Individuals of any age can benefit from Neurotherapy. Behavioral Health & Family Services Neurotherapy program focused on alleviating symptoms associated with the following challenges or disorders:
- Executive Processing Disorders
- Alcohol and Drug Use Disorders
- Pain Management
- Peak Performers (Sports, Business, and Arts)
Neurofeedback can help a variety of challenges including attention deficits, anxiety, depression and other forms of disruptive and disturbing behaviors. Neurofeedback can assist individuals who struggle with drug and alcohol use. Neurofeedback can help anyone maintain good brain function as they age. Peak performers also use EEG training to enhance their abilities in sports, business and the arts.
How is neurofeedback done?
Sensors are attached to the scalp with EEG paste which then pick up brain waves. It is painless and does not involve the application of any voltage or current to the brain, so it is entirely non-invasive. We instruct you how to play the video game using only your brain waves. (Everyone can do it.) The specific brain wave frequencies we reward and the sensor locations on the scalp are unique to each individual.
What happens if neurofeedback clients are taking medications?
With successful neurofeedback training, medications targeting brain function may be minimized or taken at a lower dosage, as the brain takes over the role of regulating itself. It is important for clients to communicate with their prescribing physician regarding neurofeedback and medications.
