Dr. Roseann’s Beekman, NY clinic provides expert treatment by professionally trained practitioners. Dr. Roseanne herself interprets all all quantitative electroencephalogram (QEEG) data used in Neurofeedback and Biofeedback treatments.

Neurofeedback and Biofeedback treatments are non-medication-based alternative treatments. Instead of using dangerous invasive techniques, Neurofeedmack and Biofeedback therapies use safe, sterile, non-invasive quantitative electroencephalogram (QEEG) technology. We create QEEG brain maps by connecting patients to electrical sensors that measure neurological and biological activity.

What is Neurofeedback?

Neurofeedback is a safe, non-invasive, method of treatment based in studying an individual’s brainwaves to encourage healthy self-regulation.* The brain naturally works to calm the central nervous system, but unhealthy neuro-responses can cause both physical and psychological symptoms, including anxiety and depression. Neurofeedback treatment works to track the brain’s behaviors, reinforce positive behaviors, and redirect negative behaviors in order to alleviate symptoms.  

What is Biofeedback?

Similarly, Biofeedback treatment is focused on tracking and regulating autonomic functions such as breath, heart rate, and temperature. Biofeedback treatment can be used to relieve physical stressors like tense muscles, and physiological symptoms like those associated with high stress.* Biofeedback treatment allows for greater knowledge of and control over one’s own body.  

What is QEEG?

A quantitative electroencephalogram (QEEG) brain map records the electrical patterns measured on the outside of the head that reflect cortical activity. This data is then compared to a reference database in order to highlight specific patterns associated with various physiological and psychological tendencies. The QEEG is used to plan treatments, as well as to measure progress and success.*

Common Neurofeedback & Biofeedback Questions:

How Does Neurofeedback Work?

A large part of Neurofeedback therapy is teaching the patient how to modify and control their own brainwave activity. Neurofeedback technology allow clients to see a live stream of their own neurofeedback waves as they respond to stimuli. Clients learn to increase desirable brain behaviors and decrease negative brain behaviors by watching what triggers different brain wave frequencies. Through rewards and positive reinforcement, the brain develops new, healthy patterns of electrical activity and self-regulation. This regulation decreases painful symptoms. Neurofeedback therapy is about taking control over one’s own brain and body. Knowledge of one’s brain functions has a powerful impact on health and wellbeing.*

What Does the Neurofeedback Process Involve?

The first step of Neurofeedback therapy is to conduct a quantitative electroencephalogram brain map in order to identify current base patterns of brain waves. These patterns are recorded and Dr. Roseanne performs statistical analysis in order to correlate and individual clients’ base with a reference and determine what work needs to be done. After Dr. Roseann analyzes a client’s QEEG, she meets with them one-on-one to review their brain map and outline goals and a treatment plan. With a treatment protocol in place, a client begins Neurofeedback therapy sessions in order to redefine brainwave patterns and practice more healthy responses.
