What is Neurofeedback?

Neurofeedback is a safe and non-invasive treatment used to study the information (feedback) of brainwaves (neuro) and to reinforce change.* From these treatments, the brain can self-regulate itself to calm the nervous system and diminish symptoms. Without self-regulation, problems like anxiety, depression and other physical symptoms can occur. Biofeedback is different from Neurofeedback due to its focus on autonomic functions.

What is Biofeedback?

Biofeedback is used to learn how to control your bodily functions like breath, heart rate, and skin temperature. Patients are connected to electrical sensors to measure and give information (feedback) about the body (bio). This way you can record and learn to control subtle changes like relaxing muscles or reducing stress. The power over your body can lead to the improvement of health.* Biofeedback differs from Neurofeedback because it is the control of autonomic functions.

What is QEEG?

QEEG stands for quantitative electroencephalogram. This is a brain map that measures the electrical patterns of the surface of the scalp to reflect cortical activity. A quantitative EEG is a computer analysis of the EEG data. This data is then compared to a reference database filled with a standard set of other people’s EEG results. Certain patterns may be a sign of depression, anxiety and more. A QEEG charts a treatment plan and can help lead to the road of healing.*

Why Dr. Roseann for Neuro & Biofeedback?

At the office of Dr. Roseann Capanna-Hodge, Ed.D., LPC, BCN, we work with children, adolescents, teens, adults and families around a variety of issues with non-medication therapies. Our staff provides non-judgmental support to help alleviate stress and promote wellness.

Dr. Roseann is a high quality practitioner and interprets the QEEG data herself instead of outsourcing for more accurate test studies. From there, she designs a custom-fitted Neurofeedback, Advanced Bio-Regulation, and other treatments based on the data to better help you.*

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 someone learn to modify their own brainwave activity. With the help of computers, we can monitor brain functions and waves to show live feedback to clients. We then train them to promote or reduce different brain wave frequencies and reward the brain for changing its activity to produce appropriate patterns. By using a strategy that utilizes reinforcement and rewards, new electrical activity is produced in the brain and brain wave activity is then “shaped” to a desired performance. As the brain learns to self-regulate, symptoms will be reduced.*

What Does the Neurofeedback Process Involve?

We first conduct a QEEG brain map, which consists of analyzing statistics through an EEG. Dr. Roseann will review your brain map, point out what is causing your condition and put together a treatment plan. Immediately after you can begin your neurofeedback treatments. The process involves sensors being placed on the scalp and ears while simultaneously receiving brainwave reinforcement by watching a movie. There is an average of 20-100 sessions for patients, and most individuals come in twice a week.

How Do I Get Started with Neuro/BioFeedback?

If you are living in the Darien area, you can simply call our office to schedule your QEEG brain map. We also offer free Neurofeedback information sessions, check our event schedule – Here – to see when.

How Do You Know Which Therapy I Need?

After the QEEG is completed, Dr. Roseann will study your results and clinical intake and give you a recommendation on what treatments you will need. We care about our Darien residents and we proudly provide non-invasive therapy.

How Do You Monitor Progress?

We monitor progress in three ways:

  • Through QEEGs at regular intervals to objectively look at brain functioning.
  • Through data collection at every Neurofeedback session.
  • Through a regular customized symptom checklist

Is the Therapy Supported by Research?

Neurofeedback is proven to a safe and alternative treatment for conditions that affect children and adults. There are thousands of researched studies conducted over the past 40 years. In 2013, The American Academy of Pediatrics gave it a Level 1 effectiveness rating for the treatment of ADHD, rating the same as medication.*
