What is Neurofeedback?

Neurofeedback is a breakthrough therapeutic treatment that places direct emphasis on the brain. By studying, analyzing, and interpreting information from brainwaves allows us to noticed specific electrical patterns and related activity. This information from the brain, or neuro feedback, helps us to be able to change tracked symptoms and diminish unwanted ones. Through self-regulation, we enable our Bristol patients to diminish anxiety, depressions, and various other physical symptoms. We provide the people of Bristol with a better understanding of cranial functions, creating a more calming balance in their lives.

What is Biofeedback?

Biofeedback is an additional therapeutic treatment that branches further off of Neurofeedback. Biofeedback, as the name implies, focuses on the connection between both the mind and the body. By measuring the body and related information received through the brain, we can understand the condition of our Bristol patients. This self-analysis allows for better control of bodily functions, like breathing, skin temperatures, and heart rate. Biofeedback techniques are targeted on small, sometimes subtle changes and how your body responds. By learning to control these autonomic functions, our Bristol patients can reduce related stress and achieve a healthier way of life.*

What is QEEG?

A quantitative electroencephalogram refers to an individualized brain map. Known more simply as a QEEG, it helps us measure the electrical activity on the surface of the scalp. When we can understand brainwaves and associated patterns, we can find related cortical activity. The QEEG data helps Dr. Roseann in understanding the condition and how to diminish symptoms for our Bristol patients. We are able to establish a specialized and specific treatment plan. All of our efforts are personalized to the individual needs of our Bristol, CT clients.

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 a treatment technique that focuses on the brain and regulating brainwaves. Through this method, we help our Bristol patients learn to control, regulate, and then modify specific cranial activity. Computers and modern technology enables us to track certain brainwaves and related functions, and then follow up on the respective responses. Once we understand this pattern, we can promote certain frequencies or decrease them to establish a new electrical pattern. This new pattern is reinforced through a cranial reward system to solidify the beneficial change. Your brain is then able to self-regulate and lead to a more constant feeling of wellbeing and improved performance.*

What Does the Neurofeedback Process Involve?

The treatment process of Neurofeedback begins with a QEEG brain map. This allows for proper understanding of the cranial functions and bodily reactions. Dr. Roseann will personally analyze the QEEG data, then meet with you individually to discuss the information. We then create a treatment plan specific to your needs, and you are able to start the treatment sessions. We strive to have every plan personalized to the exact needs of our Bristol patients, which results in varying treatment sessions. On average, our Bristol patients visit our office two to three times a week. A treatment session consists of placing harmless sensors on the scalp and ears, then measuring received brainwaves while you watch a film.

How Do I Get Started with Neuro/BioFeedback?

Our treatment sessions begin with a proper QEEG brain map and analysis. Call of Ridgefield office today to schedule your QEEG appointment and create a treatment schedule. For more information about our techniques, we offer information sessions.

How Do You Know Which Therapy I Need?

Our goal is to provide the best treatment and technique for each Bristol patient. Dr. Roseann interprets the QEEG data herself to make a unique plan with specific methods selected. Sometimes this involves a combination of Neurofeedback, Biofeedback, and our other alternative treatment methods.*

How Do You Monitor Progress?

We monitor progress in three primary ways:

  • by analyzing the QEEG data on regular intervals
  • collecting specific data during each feedback session
  • checking symptoms and selected monitors

Is the Therapy Supported by Research?

Neurofeedback and Biofeedback treatment techniques have been validated by reviewed studies throughout the past 40 years. These alternative methods are safe, effective, and beneficial, particularly in avoiding potentially harmful treatments. Rather than selecting the danger of prescriptions or surgery, Dr. Roseann’s therapy is effective for children, youth, and adults with various conditions. The American Academy of Pediatrics gave these methods a Level 1 effectiveness rating in regards to treating ADHD, which is the same effectiveness as medication.*
