What is Neurofeedback?

The brain has an incredible ability to self-regulate. Without this self-regulation, the brain would be unable to relax the nervous system and consequently not able to reduce or relax symptoms. This disruption can manifest in anxiety, depression, and other physical problems. Neurofeedback is a safe, alternative form of treatment in which the information (feedback) of brainwaves (neuro) is studied and positive changes are reinforced.* Biofeedback differs from Neurofeedback in that biofeedback focuses on autonomic functions while Neurofeedback revolves around brainwaves.

What is Biofeedback?

Biofeedback controls autonomic functions, so although it deals with natural processes in the body, it differs from neurofeedback, which controls brainwaves. By using biofeedback, a person can learn to control their breath, heart rate, skin temperature, and other functions related to the body. Dr. Roseann attaches electrical sensors to the scalp. These sensors measure and relay information (feedback) about the body (bio). We can record the results, which allows the patient to learn to control small changes, which might include relaxing muscles or reducing stress. If you have power over your body, you can begin to improve your health.*

What is QEEG?

A QEEG (quantitative electroencephalogram) brain map is the measurement of electrical patterns that reflect cortical activity. These measurements are taken on the very surface of the scalp using sensors. A quantitative EEG is a computer analysis of the EEG data. This EEG data is compared to a reference database containing a standard set of data by other people’s EEGs. This allows Dr. Roseann to compare the information and identify specific patterns. Different or unusual patterns can sometimes indicate conditions such as depression, anxiety and many more. The QEEG is used both for treatment planning and tracking progress.*

Why Dr. Roseann for Neuro & Biofeedback?

We work with children, adolescents, teens, adults and families to provide non-invasive, non-medication therapies for a variety of conditions. At the office of Dr. Roseann Capanna-Hodge, Ed.D., LPC, BCN, our team strives to provide non-judgmental support in an effort to alleviate stress and promote wellness among all of our patients.

Dr. Roseann is an experienced practitioner. She ensures that the test studies conducted in our office are more accurate by interpreting the QEEG data herself. Once all of the tests are finished, Dr. Roseann sits down to design custom treatments for each patient based on the data. The therapies included in a course of treatment might include include Neurofeedback, Advanced Bio-Regulation, and/or additional practices 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?

By using Neurofeedback, individuals can actually learn the skills and methods needed to modify and adjust their own brainwave activity. In our office, we can monitor brain functioning using computers, providing real-time feedback to the patient. In treatment sessions, we will teach you to control different brainwave frequencies, and then help you learn how to reward the brain for changing its own activity. As a result, the brain will produce more appropriate patterns. Through this reinforcement, new electrical activity is actually produced in the brain, and the brainwave activity is “shaped” into a more regular performance. The brain learns to self-regulate, resulting in reduced symptoms.* How Do I know which therapy I need?

After a QEEG, based on your QEEG results and clinical intake information, Dr. Roseann will review your results with you and recommend a treatment plan. The most appropriate course of treatment and types of therapies will be suggested. We proudly serve individuals and families in the Mahopac area with these safe, alternative therapies.

What Does the Neurofeedback Process Involve?

We conduct a non-invasive procedure called a QEEG Brain Map. During the QEEG Brain Map process, EEG activity is recorded and statistically analyzed. Dr. Roseann will then meet with you to review your brain map and design an appropriate treatment plan. As soon as a protocol has been established, you can begin your Neurofeedback sessions! During these non-invasive, non-pharmaceutical treatment sessions, sensors are placed on the scalp and ears. You will then receive brainwave reinforcement as you watch a movie. The number of sessions required varies based on each individual. The number of appointments can range from 20 to 100 or more.*  Most Mahopac residents who visit our office for two appointments per week.

The most appropriate course of treatment and types of therapies will be suggested. We proudly serve individuals and families in the Mahopac area with these safe, alternative therapies.

How Do You Monitor Progress?

Progress is tracked in three different ways :

  • Through QEEGs conducted at regular intervals to objectively look at brain functioning.
  • Through data collection at each Neurofeedback session.
  • Through regular, customized symptom checklist progress monitoring

Is the Therapy Supported by Research?

Neurofeedback is a safe alternative to pharmaceutical or invasive treatments for many conditions affecting everyone from children to adults. The efficacy of this alternative treatment has been validated by thousands of research studies over the past 40+ years. The American Academy of Pediatrics gave it a Level 1 effectiveness rating—the same effect as pharmaceutical treatment*—in the treatment of ADHD in 2013.*
