What is Neurofeedback?

Neurofeedback is a safe treatment that doesn’t require medication. Neurofeedback requires studying the information (feedback) of the patient’s brain function (neuro) and positively reinforcing that change but acknowledging the behavior. * The brain self- regulates itself along with the central nervous system but self-regulating. This activity diminishes undesirable symptoms. Without that control, symptoms of anxiety and depression can appear alongside other physical symptoms. Biofeedback and Neurofeedback are different because Neurofeedback focuses on the autonomic function.

What is Biofeedback?

Biofeedback is when an individual learns to control automatic functions such as heart rate, skin temperature, and breath. At our Briarcliff Manor office, we take electrical sensors and place them on the patient. These sensors measure data (feedback) about the patient’s body (bio). At our Briarcliff Manor office, we record the data and make changed to control small changes such as muscle relaxation and reducing stress. Biofeedback and Neurofeedback are different because it focuses on autonomic function. This control over one’s body function can lead to an improvement of health and reduce symptoms. *

What is QEEG?

A quantitative electroencephalogram measures electrical patterns on the surface of the patient’s scalp. It’s called a QEEG. The QEEG tracks cortical activity. A quantitative electroencephalogram is a computer analysis of information obtained by the EEG. The data is a computer breakdown of information obtained by the EEG. This EEG data is compared to a database of other people’s EEG data. Specific patterns demonstrated on the QEEG indicate depression, anxiety, and so much more. The QEEG is used for planning one’s treatment and track the progress. * We offer these services at Briarcliff Manor. The QEEG is the first step to your treatment.

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.

Michael B

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?

Using computers, we closely watch the brain function to show the live feedback to the client. Neurofeedback is when a person learns how to change their brainwave activity to reduce undesirable symptoms. We train the brain to encourage appropriate patterns, or brain wave frequencies. We reward the brain for altering its activity in this way. This positive reinforcement causes new electrical activity to be produced which shapes a more desirable and regulated performance. As the brain self-regulates the changes reduce the undesirable symptoms.

What Does the Neurofeedback Process Involve?

The first step of your treatment requires the patient to get a QEEG Brain Map. The EEG is first recorded and analyzed using statistics. The patient will meet with Dr. Roseann to analyze your brain map and design a customized treatment. Once this plan has been created, you can start Neurofeedback sessions. The amount of sessions you need will vary between each individual- anywhere from 20-100 + sessions. *  Many individuals in Briarcliff Manor attend sessions two times a week. In these sessions, we place sensors on the scalp and ears. You receive brainwave reinforcement while you watch a movie.

How Do I Get Started with Neuro/BioFeedback?

If you are a resident of Briarcliff Manor, NY, please call our offices and schedule your QEEG Brain Map. In addition to our normal services, we offer free Neurofeedback information sessions.

How Do You Know Which Therapy I Need?

Once you have completed your first QEEG, Dr. Roseann Capanna-Hodge will meet with you and review the results. She will then make treatment recommendations. Considering your QEEG alongside your clinical intake, Dr. Roseann will choose which therapy is the most fitting for your needs. We are pleased to serve the residents of Briarcliff Manor, NY.

After your QEEG, Dr. Roseann will review your results in order to make appropriate treatment recommendations. Based on the results of your QEEG and clinical intake, Dr. Roseanne will select which therapy or therapies are best suited for your needs.  

How Do You Monitor Progress?

We check your progress in three ways:

  1. We read your QEEGs at intervals to observe your brain function.
  2. Every Neurofeedback session is monitored closely for progress.
  3. We track your progress through regular customized symptom checklist monitoring.

Is the Therapy Supported by Research?

Neurofeedback is a therapy that does not require medication. It is a safe, drug-free alternative to treatment for many conditions that affect both adults and children. There have been studies that support this therapies efficiency over the last 40 years. The American Academy of Pediatrics assigned the therapy a Level 1 in effectiveness in the treatment of ADHD. This is the same level assigned to medication. *
