What is Neurofeedback?

Neurofeedback is a treatment that focuses on studying the information of brainwaves and reinforcing the new desired change.* This method is completely safe, focusing on a non-invasive form of treatment for the body and mind. The name stems from the focus of studying information (feedback) of the brainwaves (neuro), as this method helps us understand the self-regulation of the brain. The brain can calm the nervous system and diminish symptoms of a condition. If there is no self-regulation, symptoms increase and central nervous problems can occur, such as anxiety, depression, and various physical symptoms. Neurofeedback places a stronger emphasis on the brain and nervous system.

What is Biofeedback?

Biofeedback is another method used to help better understand the mind and body. Biofeedback focuses particularly on the process on controlling bodily functions, like breathing, heart rate, and skin temperature. The process included connecting patients to electrical sensors to measure the body (bio) and receive more information (feedback). This helps us better understand the subtle changes that can occur, such as reducing stress and the relaxing of muscles. It places a strong emphasis on the control of autonomic functions, rather than the brain. Establishing power of one’s body in an impactful way to improve health.*

What is QEEG?

QEEG stands for quantitative electroencephalogram. That means a map of the brain to measure electrical patterns on the surface of the scalp. This reflects cortical activity. EEG data is used to compare a reference database of a standard set to other people’s EEG. We are then able to gather a quantitative EEG, which is a computer analysis of this EEG data. It helps us recognize specific patterns that signify signs of depression, anxiety, and other conditions. A QEEG helps with both treatment planning and a patient’s progress.*

My husband and I have two special needs children and are very involved in their education. We only use the best providers and Dr. Roseann is simply the best. From evaluations to neurofeedback to parent coaching, she has been there for my family. She is so knowledgeable and experienced in so many areas and we know that we can always run anything by her.  One of our children has Autism and PANS with significant communication and behavioral issues and Dr. Roseann and her staff have always given us the most loving care and work to support his sensory needs. I can’t recommend Dr. Roseann and Associates more highly.

Dr. Roseann literally saved my daughter’s life. Through testing, her team identified that she had Dyslexia and get her the right supports at school. The care that she and we received from the staff and her therapist over the years has been a lifeline.

The 360 Reboot program turned my daughter’s life around. She had been plagued with anxiety her whole life and never responded to regular talk therapy. With intensive neurofeedback, biofeedback, psychotherapy, and parent coaching, she was able to break the anxiety cycle. She is a happy young adult and we couldn’t be prouder of her and more grateful for the staff at Dr. Roseann and Associates.

As an educator myself, I had seen several of my students make positive and often dramatic changes after going to Dr. Roseann’s center. When my son started having problems at school paying attention, I knew that my husband and I wanted Dr. Roseann’s experienced care. She was spot on in diagnosing the issues with the brain map and walked us through the step by step process of what we needed to do. Our son and family have benefited so much from the center’s help. He never needed medication and with neurofeedback and dietary changes, he became the best person he could be. It has been several years and my son is now thriving in college.

As a therapist myself, I knew that Dr. Roseann is one of the top mental health experts on PANS/PANDAS and Lyme Disease. So when I became sick, she was the first person I called for help. She was able to connect me with the right Lyme medical experts so I could get treatment. I was very lucky that the biofeedback and BRT at the center started helping my headaches and anxiety immediately. I am about 90 percent better and I wouldn’t be feeling so great if it weren't for Dr. Roseann.

After my son with ADHD and anxiety had terrible reactions to medications, we went to Dr. Roseann on the recommendation of our pediatrician. She helped us to understand why his brain and body was reacting to medication and why he was experiencing anxiety, focus, and impulse control issues. After 10 years of many therapists and psychiatrists, we finally saw some major change in on our son with neurofeedback, BRT, and counseling. His therapist helped him and us improve his executive functioning and alertness. It was scary to see him suffer so much on ADHS medications and I am so glad he is happy and our home life isn’t so stressful.

As a family highly impacted by the 12-14 tragedy in Sandy Hook, Dr. Roseann and staff has given us help over the years. From learning how to use EFT/Tapping to manage our anxiety to neurofeedback, everyone in our family has been helped. We learned so much about how trauma impacts the brain and the neuroscience part of stress, anxiety, and trauma. When confronted with such stress, you can’t imagine things will get better, but they did with their help.

As a physician, I knew exactly where to take my son for the best possible mental health care. My son was so anxious from an undiagnosed learning disability and a poor school program. Dr. Roseann evaluated my son and gave us recommendations that were so specific, we could after many years of pushing and prodding the school, finally get him the right program at school. Her center was able to provide all the therapies he needed to improve his cognitive processing speed and reduce anxiety with the highest level of clinical care.

Our adult daughter had treatment resistant depression and was suffering when we came to Dr. Roseann’s center. Even though other therapists had turned us away, her team supported our daughter in a way that we had never experienced. With intensive counseling and neurofeedback, she was able to not be anxious for the first time in her life and her depression stopped.

Our time with Dr. Roseann and her staff during our 360 Reboot intensive therapies program was special. Our little guy gained so many skills in a short time and we received so much education about his needs and what we needed to do along the developmental spectrum to keep him growing in the right direction. We wish we had found her center sooner!

Dr. Roseann treated my ADHD when I was a teenager after my parents tried medications for years on me. I hated every minute of those medications and I felt so irritated all the time. After about 18 sessions, it was like my brain shifted and I woke up from a fog. It has been 6 years since I finished neurofeedback and my attention is awesome!

You have accomplished wonders for my grandson. He is now the child he was always meant to be. Your program was the best investment in his life. I worked with so many young college students who struggled with ADHD and I did not want to see that happen to him. I am so happy that he has been able to benefit from the program. I tell everyone with a child who has attention issues that your program works wonders.

Common Neurofeedback & Biofeedback Questions:

How Does Neurofeedback Work?

Neurofeedback is the process of helping an individual modify and better control their personal brainwave activity. Our methods use the power of computers to track brain functioning and share live feedback with the patient. We help every client work to improve their condition. Whether that is promoting or reducing different brainwave frequencies, we are able to reward the brain for the change. This enables it to produce more desired brainwave patterns. This reinforcement creates new electrical activity that is produced in the bran. The specific frequencies are molded to a more desirable and more controlled level. This self-regulation of the brain promotes a reduction of condition symptoms.

What Does the Neurofeedback Process Involve?

The process of Neurofeedback begins with a QEEG brain map. This procedure records and statistically analyzes your EEG activity. Once the QEEG is complete, Dr. Roseann will review the brain map with you. A specific treatment plan is developed for you and a protocol is established. You can then begin your Neurofeedback sessions. Since each condition and patient is different, the number of lessons can range anywhere from 20 to 100 sessions, even more if necessary*. Our Bethany patients generally visit two times per week. A session typically consists of placing sensors on the ears and scalp. This helps observe and regulate the brainwave reinforcement while you watch a movie.

How Do I Get Started with Neuro/BioFeedback?

To begin the Neurofeedback or Biofeedback process, call our office to set up an appointment. We will first schedule your QEEG brain map. We additionally offer free Neurofeedback information sessions. For more information on those sessions, click here.

How Do You Know Which Therapy I Need?

Dr. Roseann personally analyzes and interprets your QEEG to provide you with accurate results. She will sit down with you to review the results and provide certain recommendations for treatment. The QEEG results and additional intake will help determine what therapies are best for you.

How Do You Monitor Progress?

Progress is monitored in three primary ways:

  • QEEGs performed at scheduled intervals to observe brain functioning.
  • Data and information collected from every session.
  • Customized symptom checklist designed for monitored progress.

Is the Therapy Supported by Research?

There are several harmful and potentially dangerous treatment methods. Neurofeedback is a safe therapy that avoids the use of drugs and other perscriptions. It helps alleviate symptoms for several conditions impacting both children and adults. Thousands of research studies have been conducted in the past 40 years that support its methods. The American Academy of Pediatrics gave it a Level 1 effectiveness rating in 2013 for its impact on ADHD. Level 1 is the same level of effectiveness as medication.*
