What is Neurofeedback?

Neurofeedback is a type of non-invasive, safe form of treatment that works by studying brainwaves (neuro) and the information they provide (feedback) and reinforcing that change.* In order to diminish symptoms, the brain calms the nervous system by self-regulation. Central nervous problems like anxiety, depression, and even physical symptoms can arise without this self-regulation. As opposed to Neurofeedback, Biofeedback focuses on autonomic functions.

What is Biofeedback?

Biofeedback is the process of consciously controlling one’s bodily functions, like breath, heart rate, and skin temperature. We receive information (feedback) about the body (bio) when we connect patients to electrical sensors. Using this information, a person can record and then learn to control subtle changes like reducing stress or relaxing muscles. Neurofeedback is different because Biofeedback looks at the control over one’s autonomic functions. Control over one’s body can improve overall health.*

What is QEEG?

A quantitative electroencephalogram, or QEEG, is a brain map that measures electrical patterns that reflect cortical activity on the surface of the scalp. A computer analysis of EEG data is called a quantitative EEG. A reference database of a standard set by other’s EEG is compared to your EEG data. Observed patterns can be indicative of anxiety, depression, and other disorders. The QEEG is utilized for both treatment planning and progress.*

Why Dr. Roseann for Neuro & Biofeedback?

At the offices of Dr. Roseann Capanna-Hodge, Ed.D., LPC, BCN, we assist children, adolescents, teens, adults, and families with a variety of issues using non-medication therapies. To help alleviate stress and promote wellness, our staff always provides non-judgmental support.

Dr. Roseann is an experienced practitioner who personally interprets all QEEG data instead of outsourcing to provide more accurate results. She designs customized treatments personally suited for each of patients. No one solution applies to every situation, so an in-depth review of the test results is necessary for every patient. After that, she designs custom Neurofeedback, Advanced Bio-Regulation, and other treatments based on the information to better treat 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 assists a person in learning how to modify their own brainwave activity. We monitor brain function and show live feedback to our clients through the use of computers. We utilize them to reduce or promote different brainwave frequencies and reward the brain when it changes its own activity to promote more appropriate patterns. New electrical activity is actually formed in the brain through this reinforcement and the brainwave activity is “shaped” into more regulated and desirable performance. As the brain learns to self-regulate, the changes in activity result in symptom reduction.*

What Does the Neurofeedback Process Involve?

The first step is to create a QEEG Brain Map, a procedure that records and statistically analyzes EEG activity. At your meeting with Dr. Roseann, you will review the brain map and make a treatment plan together. You can immediately start your Neurofeedback sessions once a protocol is designed. The necessary number of sessions varies based on the individual, but usually range between 20 to 100 or more sessions.* Most patients in North Salem come in twice a week. A typical session generally includes placement of sensors on the scalp and ears while watching a movie, all while getting brainwave reinforcement.

How Do I Get Started with Neuro/BioFeedback?

How Do You Know Which Therapy I Need?

Following the QEEG, Dr. Roseann will meet with you, review your results, and make recommendations on treatment. She can determine what therapy or therapies will suit you best based on your QEEG results and clinical intake. We proudly offer all of these alternative therapies to North Salem residents.

How Do You Monitor Progress?

There are three ways we monitor progress:

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

Is the Therapy Supported by Research?

For many conditions affecting children and adults, Neurofeedback can be a safe, drug-free treatment alternative. Over more than 40 years, there have been thousands of research studies supporting its efficacy. The American Academy of Pediatrics gave its treatment of ADHD a Level 1 rating, essentially the same effectiveness as medication.*
