What is Neurofeedback?

Neurofeedback Therapy, also known as brainwave training, is a non-invasive treatment method that focuses on training the brain to produce healthy brainwave activity.

It involves using specialized equipment, such as EEG brain imaging, to monitor and provide feedback on the brain's electrical patterns. Neurofeedback Therapy aims to improve overall brain function and emotional well-being by promoting self-regulation and adaptive changes in brainwave activity.

During neurofeedback sessions, you will relax and watch a movie while we monitor your brain waves. When your brain waves are within the desired range and considered optimal, you are rewarded with uninterrupted movie viewing. However, the movie screen fades if your attention wavers and your brain waves deviate from the optimal range. This prompts your brain to adjust its oscillations toward the desired range.

As soon as your brain successfully achieves this adjustment, you are rewarded with the movie continuing without interruptions or fading. During the course of 25 neurofeedback sessions, your brain "learns" to optimize its brain waves, specifically those associated with a state of calmness and focus.

Additionally, Neurofeedback Therapy is a non-invasive approach that does not require medication and has minimal to no negative side effects. It is a safe and well-tolerated treatment option that can be used in conjunction with other therapeutic interventions or as a standalone treatment.

What are the benefits?

What's the difference between Thermography and Mammogram?

It has been found effective in alleviating symptoms associated with various conditions, including:

  • depression
  • anxiety
  • attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)
  • post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • and learning disorders

By targeting abnormal brainwave patterns associated with these conditions, Neurofeedback Therapy can help individuals experience symptom reduction and improved quality of life.

Secondly, Neurofeedback Therapy has the potential to enhance performance in various areas of life. Athletes can benefit from improved focus, concentration, and mental resilience, leading to enhanced sports performance. Musicians can experience heightened creativity and musical expression. Business professionals can improve cognitive abilities such as decision-making, problem-solving, and stress management, optimizing productivity and success.

Who’s a good candidate?

Neurofeedback Therapy is suitable for a wide range of individuals across different age groups. It can benefit children, adolescents, and adults who are experiencing symptoms related to brain dysregulation, such as difficulties with attention, emotional regulation, memory, and cognitive processing.

Moreover, individuals seeking to enhance their cognitive performance or optimize their brain function can also be good candidates for Neurofeedback Therapy. Athletes, musicians, students, and professionals looking to improve their focus, concentration, and overall mental performance can benefit from the targeted brainwave training provided by Neurofeedback Therapy.

What science says about Neurofeedback

Neurofeedback Therapy is a well-researched field, and scientific studies have demonstrated its effectiveness in various applications. Research supports its efficacy in reducing symptoms associated with conditions such as ADHD, anxiety, depression, and PTSD. Studies have also shown positive effects on cognitive performance, attention, memory, and emotional regulation.

  • ADD/ADHD: In a review published in the Journal of Clinical Medicine in 2021, Neurofeedback Therapy was found to be beneficial for children with ADHD, showing improvements in impulse control, behavior, and focus.
  • Addictions: Researchers at UCLA conducted a study that revealed the positive effects of Neurofeedback Therapy on individuals with addictions. The study showed that neurofeedback therapy improved abstinence rates in these individuals.
  • Anxiety: A 2021 study focusing on individuals with generalized anxiety disorder demonstrated the effectiveness of neurofeedback therapy in enhancing emotional regulation. The study reported significant reductions in anxiety and depressive symptoms among neurofeedback therapy participants.
  • Depression: Recent research published in Psychological Medicine indicated that neurofeedback therapy, when used as an adjunctive treatment, was effective in reducing depressive symptoms. The study relied on self-reports from participants to draw this conclusion.
  • Memory Issues: A 2021 study investigating the efficacy of Neurofeedback Therapy for memory loss associated with mild cognitive impairment showed significant improvements in memory function. These improvements were sustained for at least one month following the treatment.
  • PTSD: According to a research study published in NeuroImage: Clinical, individuals with PTSD who underwent 15-20 weeks of neurofeedback therapy experienced promising results. At the end of the treatment, 61% of participants no longer met the criteria for PTSD.
  • Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI): An overview of the use of Neurofeedback Therapy for individuals with TBI suggests potential benefits in reducing symptoms related to attention, mood, and mindfulness while enhancing treatment motivation.

Frequently Asked Questions about Neurofeedback
Does Neurofeedback change personality?

No. Neurofeedback does not change personality. Personality is the expression of many genetic factors, along with the environment that shapes it. Many clients are concerned because the drugs prescribed to children and adults sometimes seem to “change their personality.” This falls under the category of a drug side effect which is not permanent but is bothersome. This is not the case with Neurofeedback. In fact, we believe that Neurofeedback helps children and adults become more of who they really are without the interference of troublesome symptoms of brain dis-regulation and drug-related side effects.

Do you offer flexible payment options?

Yes, we do offer payment plans. Please speak with our office staff regarding the options available. We offer a discount when payment is made in full for 25 sessions. We also partner with Care Credit. Care Credit provides 0% interest for 18 months. Call 1(800) 365-8295 to qualify. The non-discounted rate applies when Care Credit is utilized.

Does insurance cover the cost of Neurofeedback Therapy?

Because Neurofeedback Therapy has been developed more recently, many insurance companies are only now beginning to recognize it. We do not offer direct billing, but some of our clients have been able to get partial reimbursements or deductible credits from their insurance companies. To find out if your insurance company will reimburse any of your expenses, contact your insurance company about Neurofeedback Services. Give them the billing code 90901 (EEG Biofeedback) to find out what is covered for your diagnosis. We are approved for Sooner Care for those 18 years old and under. Unfortunately, Medicare does not currently cover our services. We urge clients not to allow this to hinder getting started with Neurofeedback, as it truly pays for itself.

Please join us in helping to educate our lawmakers and insurance companies about Neurofeedback Therapy. There are so many who need our services.

How often are neurofeedback treatments?

Neurofeedback treatments are recommended at least two to three times per week. Two treatments can be completed in one day as long as we schedule three hours between sessions – this is especially helpful for our out-of-town clients. We offer treatments in 25 session blocks, as Neurofeedback Therapy requires reinforcement training. Positive changes occur over time.

How do we get started with Neurofeedback therapy?

Call or email one of our locations to schedule your no-cost consultation. Here we will answer any questions you may have and explain further how Neurofeedback therapy can help you or your loved one.

What is the first step once we decide to begin?

The first step is to schedule your Quantitative EEG. This is a 20-channel recording of total brain wave activity that helps us create what we call a “Brain Map.” Your Brain Map shows us what part of your brain is over or underactive and gives us prescriptions for how to treat with Neurofeedback. The Brain Map will take place here in our office unless otherwise arranged, and your customized Neurofeedback protocols will focus specifically on normalizing abnormal brain wave patterns found in your QEEG.

What happens after we have our Quantitative EEG (Brainmap) completed?

When we complete the QEEG in our office, we send the results to our Neuro-Map database and are able to receive immediate analysis results. We will schedule your first Neurofeedback appointment as soon as the analysis is received.

How long are Neurofeedback treatment sessions?

Each Neurofeedback session is approximately 30-40 minutes. We generally schedule an hour for each appointment.
