The Center for Neurofeedback Testing
We provide neurofeedback services to clients of all ages. Also known as EEG Biofeedback and neurotherapy, neurofeedback encourages the brain to restore or establish a more stable and holistic functioning thus improving mental, emotional, and physical health.
An innovative, researched, computer-based technique adopted by healthcare professionals around the world, neurofeedback has been found to be effective in helping to remediate a number of conditions including problems in attention (ADHD), anger, anxiety, impulse control, insomnia, migraines, PTSD, head trauma, autistic spectrum disorders, Borderline Personality Disorder and affective disorders. Neurofeedback is complementary to existing medical treatments and mental health practices.
Good treatment begins with thorough assessment. Symptoms provide significant guidance in selecting the best training protocol, but other measures are sometimes needed. When the clinical picture is complex, a quantitative EEG (QEEG) is often helpful in assessing underlying processes.
An interview with a trained clinician is required for a proper assessment. Primary Care Physicians can often make an accurate diagnosis of various mental health issues. A professional who specializes in psychological treatment may also be needed to assess the true nature of a disorder or syndrome.
Training the Brain
We also offer neurofeedback assessment and training. Neurofeedback is a kind of biofeedback for the brain that allows you to alter your own brain waves through practice and repetition. It can be used to address a variety of neurological disregulation, including attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, insomnia, impulsivity, depression and anxiety, to name a few. In addition, neurofeedback can be used to help develop peak performance.
Neurofeedback was developed back in the 60s during a research project that found the technique could help cats resist epileptic seizures. Over the years, a significant body of research has been developed, supporting its efficacy.
Neurofeedback is non-invasive. It does not require surgery or medication and it’s neither painful nor embarrassing. When provided by a licensed professional with appropriate training, generally trainees do not experience negative side-effects. We are happy to answer any of your questions about neurofeedback and whether or not it is a good fit for you. Please call us at 210.616.0885.
