What is Neurofeedback?

Neurofeedback is a safe, non-medicine and non-invasive treatment used to study information (feedback) of brainwaves (neuro) and reinforce change.* Through this process, the brain will self-regulate itself to calm the nervous system and subside symptoms. Without self-regulation, central nervous problems like anxiety, depression and certain physical symptoms can arise. Neurofeedback focuses on autonomic functions making it different from Biofeedback.

What is Biofeedback?

Biofeedback is the process of learning how to control bodily functions like breath, heart rate, and skin temperature. Electrical sensors are attached to patients to measure and give information (feedback) about the body (bio). With recording and testing, we can help you find ways to control subtle contractions and relaxations of muscles and even learn to control stress. The power to take control of your body can lead to an improved state of health.* Biofeedback differs from Neurofeedback because it focuses on autonomic functions.

What is QEEG?

A QEEG (quantitative electroencephalogram) is a brain map of the measurement of electrical patterns on the exterior of the scalp to reflect cortical activity. A quantitative EEG is a computer analysis of EEG data. We then compare the EEG data to a reference database that has a standard set of other people’s EEG results. Certain patterns can be signs of depression, anxiety, and many others. We use the QEEG for both treatment of planning and progress*

Why Dr. Roseann for Neuro & Biofeedback?

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?

The process of neurofeedback involves helping someone modify their own brainwave activity. By using computers, we can monitor brain functions and show live feedback to our clients. We train our clients to promote or reduce different brain wave frequencies and reward the brain for changing its own activity to result in appropriate patterns. Through this change, new electrical activity is produced in the brain, and brainwave activity is “shaped” toward a more regulated performance. This results in symptom reduction, as the brain learns to self-regulate.*

What Does the Neurofeedback Process Involve?

We first begin the process by starting a QEEEG brain map. This procedure involves having EEG activity recorded and statistically analyzed. Dr. Roseann will then review the brain map and figure out what causes the conditions and put together a treatment plan. Neurofeedback sessions will proceed. This involves sensors being placed on the scalp and ears while receiving brainwave reinforcements engaged by a movie. The number of sessions can be from 20-100 or more.* And most people come in twice a week.

How Do I Get Started with Neuro/BioFeedback?

If you are living in the Easton area, call our office to schedule a QEEG brain map. We can also offer you a free Neurofeedback information session. Click  – Here – to learn more.

How Do You Know Which Therapy I Need?

After we complete the QEEG, Dr. Roseann will consult you on your results and make recommendations. Based on your QEEG results and clinical intake, she will help you decide which therapy/therapies you would like to use. We care about our Easton residence, and we want you to know that you are in good hands.

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 a safe and non-invasive treatment for both children and adults. Thousands of research studies have been conducted over the past 40 years. In 2013, The American Academy of Pediatrics gave it a Level 1 effectiveness rating in the treatment of ADHD, tying first place with medication.*
