What is Neurofeedback?

Neurofeedback is a safe, non-invasive form of treatment of studying the information (feedback) of brainwaves (neuro) and reinforcing the change.* The brain self-regulates to calm the nervous system in order to diminish symptoms. Without this self-regulation, central nervous problems can arise – anxiety, depression, and even physical symptoms. Biofeedback differs from Neurofeedback by focusing on autonomic functions.

What is Biofeedback?

Biofeedback is the process of learning to control one’s bodily functions like breath, heart rate, or skin temperature. We connect patients to electrical sensors that measure and give information (feedback) about the body (bio). This allows you to record and learn to control subtle changes like relaxing muscles or reducing stress. It differs from neurofeedback because it is the control of one’s autonomic functions. Power over one’s body can lead to an improvement of health.*

What is QEEG?

A QEEG, quantitative electroencephalogram, brain map is the measurement of electrical patterns on the very surface of the scalp that reflect cortical activity. A quantitative EEG is a computer analysis of the EEG data. This EEG data is compared to a reference database of a standard set by other people’s EEG. Specific patterns can be a sign of depression, anxiety and many more. The QEEG is used both for treatment planning and progress.*

Why Dr. Roseann for Neuro & Biofeedback?

At the office of Dr. Roseann Capanna-Hodge, Ed.D., LPC, BCN, our team works for patients of any age group. We provide non-invasive treatments and therapies for family members including children, adolescents, teens, and adults. Our goal is to provide care that reduces stress, and improves the patients quality of life.

Each element of data generated from the QEEG is interpreted from Dr. Roseann herself. Dr. Roseann does not outsource this data to ensure the data is correctly interpreted. Based on the data she will design a treatment regiment including Advanced Bio-Regulation, Neurofeedback and others to help you heal naturally.*

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?

We work hard to teach each of our patients how they can modify their own brainwave activity through Neurofeedback. We are able to show our patients their brain feedback in real time. We use computers and generate live feedback from brainwaves and monitor overall functioning of the brain. We help our patients achieve increased performance, and help the generate new electrical activity by means of a reward system. We promote different brainwave functionality by encouraging positive behavior and positive brain wave patterns.

We help our patients learn to manipulate their own brain wave activity. This process of neurofeedback allows for a reduction of symptoms, resulting from the brain learning to self regulate itself.*

What Does the Neurofeedback Process Involve?

Our team begins the process by generating a complete QEEG Brain Map. To accomplish this step our team will record the patients EEG activity, and statistically analyze the data. Following a complete analysis, the patient will meet with Dr. Roseann to review their brain map and develop a comprehensive treatment plan. The patient may begin their Neurofeedback sessions as soon as the initial protocol has been designated. Dr. Roseann will provide a treatment plan that outlines an estimated number of sessions required, and this estimation depends on the situation, goal, and the individuals wants and needs. The required number of sessions can range, however the typical assessment can require 20-100 or more sessions.

Our Waterbury patients usually schedule to come for an appointment one to two times per week. Sessions are noninvasive, and during treatment our patients are usually outfitted with sensors on the scalp and ears while receiving brainwave reinforcement, while they watch a movie.

How Do I Get Started with Neuro/BioFeedback?

If you live in Waterbury, 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?

After a QEEG, Dr. Roseann will schedule an appointment with you and review your results and make treatment recommendations. Based on your QEEG results and clinical intake, she will determine what therapy or therapies is/are best. We proudly serve Waterbury residents with these alternative therapies.

How Do You Monitor Progress?

We monitor progress in three ways :

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

Is the Therapy Supported by Research?

Over the past 40 plus years, there have been thousands of research studies supporting its efficacy. In 2013, The American Academy of Pediatrics gave it a Level 1 effectiveness rating in the treatment of ADHD, which is the same effectiveness as medication. Neurofeedback is a drug-free treatment alternative for many conditions affecting children and adults, and it is safe. *
