What is Neurofeedback or Neurotherapy?

You been “diagnosed” with anxiety, depression, Bi-Polar disorder, ________ fill in the blank.

You take medications which have limited impact or don’t work at all and have side efects.

You have been to therapists who have given you many strategies that you just can’t seem to implement.

Do you know why you act the way you act?  Why you are anxious?  Why you can’t seem to do things with ease, despite your best intentions?  Why past experiences seem to haunt your present?

Neurotherapy works in the pre-conscious world of brain function, where the habits laid down by years or decades of experiences have programmed you to respond with behaviors you would like to be different.

With gentle but persuasive training, your brain can be guided to discover new pathways of response, unreachable by other means.

Infra Low Frequency

Default Network Training

Since its discovery in 2006, neurofeedback in the infra‐low frequency (ILF) region of the EEG spectrum (below 0.1 Hz) has matured into a therapeutic method applicable to the full spectrum of mental disorders. Pioneered by Sue and Siegfried Othmer of EEGInfo, the Cygnet software we use to train these low frequencies is the most widely used and technologically advanced in the industry.
 
Deep within your brain are networks which communicate at extremely low frequencies. They manage the second by second stability and flexibility of your brain, the platform which determines your reactions to the outside world If those networks are not functioning well, you will exhibit the symptoms of that disregulation– sleepless nights, anxiety and depression, migraines, impulsivity, compulsivity, and far more.
 
Rather than impose a predetermined outcome based on comparisons to other brains, it is uniquely individual, informing the client of their own brain’s internal activity and allowing it to take that information to make adjustments in its own best performance. That is exactly how it is evolutionarily designed, it just needs good information. The technology is used to provide exactly that, your job as a client is to allow your brain to witness its changing dynamics and make the corrections needed for better function.

Default Network Training or DNT was conceived by Dr. David Kaiser, one of the world’s leading experts in qEEG analysis. Based on his unique analysis of brain function using a quantitative electroencephalogram (qEEG), this type of neurofeedback trains specific parts of the brain (Brodmann areas) to balance their energy, for your best performance.  Any over use or under use of regions of the brain will result in behaviors that impede that best performance and, using this technique, proper function can be found or restored.

All areas of the brain are targeted, from the deepest limbic structures, like the amygdala and the hippocampus, which regulate your most basic, innate responses, to the prefrontal cortex, the final arbiter of your everyday functioning. And everything in between.
