What is Neurofeedback?

Our non-invasive known as neurofeedback treatment is totally safe. During the process we study the information (feedback) of brainwaves (neuro), and work to promote positive changes in brain activitiy.* Naturally, the brain works to correct abnormalities, and regulate the nervous system. At times when this system becomes compromised it can result in symptoms such as anxiety, adhd, and depression. Biofeedback is based on autonomic functions whereas Neurofeedback is based on brain activity.

What is Biofeedback?

By studying biofeedback, our team is able to detect how your body processes systems such as heart rate, skin temp, and breath. Unlike Neurofeedback that is based on brain activity, biofeedback is based on autonomic functions. We hook up sensors to the patient and the sensors provide feedback (information) related to their body (bio) functions. Over a period of time collecting data, we can help encourage your body to change its processing to reduce symptoms such as stress. By giving our patients control they are more equipped to address a range of chronic and acute symptoms.

What is QEEG?

A QEEG is a quantitative electroencephalogram. This machine allows us to measure electrical patterns in the brain through sensors placed on the scalp. After several sessions with a QEEG, we can detect common patterns from the reflected cortical activity. A quantitative EEG is a comprehensive computer analysis of this data, in which we compare it to previously collected data from other patients. By comparing patient data to the database we can detect abnormalities, and it can help discern the causes symptoms such as anxiety and adhd. With this information we can more accurately design a worthy treatment program.

Common Neurofeedback & Biofeedback Questions:

How Does Neurofeedback Work?

Over time we use positive reinforcement techniques to encourage patients to learn to modify their own brainwave activity. We use advanced computers to provide live feedback so patients can watch their own brainwave activity in real time. Our reward system is geared to promote positive brain patterns, and over time this treatment can work to lessen the symptoms resulting from neurological abnormalities. We can help our patients in Orange generate new electrical patterns, and encourage the brain to self-regulate itself. Neurofeedback involves helping a person learn how to modify their own brainwave activity.*

With new state of the art medical technologies we can show patients their brainwave activity in real time. Our treatments work to promote positive electrical patterns. These improved patterns can help patients achieve increased performance. In addition, the brain can learn to subdue symptoms and self-regulate.*

What Does the Neurofeedback Process Involve?

The first step of the treatment program is to generate a QEEG Brain Map. This map is a survey of the brains electrical patterns to provide insight to the brains functionality. Our team will statistically analyze this data, and following analysis Dr. Roseann will review the information. From this initial survey, Dr. Roseann will develop a complete treatment plan for each of our patients from Orange, and ascertain an estimation of how many sessions the patient will need to undergo to achieve results.* This initial estimate can range depending on the patients needs. Typically our patients require 20-100 sessions, or more. Our patients from Orange typically come in for treatment sessions once to twice a week. During the treatment our patients are set up with sensors on the scalp and ears while receiving brainwave reinforcement.

How Do I Get Started with Neuro/BioFeedback?

If you live in Orange, please call the office to schedule your QEEG Brain Map. We also regularly offer free Neurofeedback information sessions – Click Here – for more information.

How Do You Know Which Therapy I Need?

From the QEEG data, Dr. Roseann will develop a treatment plan. Once she has reviewed the data, each patient meets with Dr. Roseann to discuss the customized treatment strategy in depth and develop a schedule. We proudly serve Orange residents with these alternative therapies.

How Do You Monitor Progress?

We monitor progress in three ways :

  • We routinely look at brain functioning
  • We routinely check the personalized symptom checklist
  • All data collected from each session

Is the Therapy Supported by Research?

In 2013, The American Academy of Pediatrics gave Neurofeedback a Level 1 effectiveness rating in the treatment of ADHD, which is the same effectiveness as medication. Over the past 40 plus years, there have been thousands of research studies supporting its efficacy.
