HERE TO SERVE YOU
Neurotherapy (Neurofeedback) is an alternative to traditional medication treatments, incorporating neurofeedback and cognitive therapy which allows the mind and body to retrain itself and take control of its own healing process. It can be used to help treat symptoms of multiple disorders including but not limited to: anxiety, depression, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, ADD/ADHD, select sleep disorders, Autism/Asperger’s, headaches, and traumatic brain injury.
Neurofeedback is the direct training of the brain to learn to function more efficiently without medication. This is a gradual learning process that can apply to any area of the brain. By playing a video game with your brain, you can increase your attention span, focus, energy, sleep, mood, and decrease depression and anxiety.
Recommended: One hour session twice per week that includes cognitive therapy and behavioral modification.
qEEG is a clinical tool used to evaluate brain function. It measures the cortical electrical activity of the brain and allows us to view the dynamic changes taking place through the brain during cognitive processing tasks.
With the qEEG, patients can see how each part of their brain is processing, which can help their physicians determine which medication or holistic treatment such as neurofeedback may work best. A qEEG can also be used as a tool to determine medication and supplement efficacy, as well as a basis for neurofeedback protocols.
