neurofeedback for beginners


First, decide if you are want to receive sessions in my office, rent NeurOptimal®  for home use, or buy your own machine.

If interested in In-Office sessions

Step 1. Start by scheduling your first appointment online (or better yet, check out the discounted packages): online schedule

Step 2.  Fill out the required  online forms 24 hours BEFORE arriving for your first appointment: client-forms

Step 3. Enjoy the transformation journey!

Many clients start by trying the first few sessions in the office, then choose to either rent a system to use at home for 1, 2 or 3 months. "Buying Your Own Device" is best for those who need longer training (3 or more months) or have other loved ones who also needs brain training as well.

We can discuss these options for you at your first appointment (check all 3 types of services).

Look forward to meeting you in person. Congratulations on making the right decision to care for your brain!
The number of neurofeedback session you will need will depend on your condition and your goals.

If your problems are a recent occurrence in your life, you’ll likely only need a few sessions to feel "yourself" again. If there are multiple problems or conditions that go far back that failed multiple other treatments, you may need at least 20 sessions, especially as you start seeing changes in your sleep, your moods, focus or other things you came for.
Neurofeedback is not well recognized because there is no pharmaceutical company or large, well funded organization with a patent that promotes it.  Studies have been done to show neurofeedback's effectiveness, but these articles are published in less prestigious journals. Traditional medical doctors typically are not educated in alternative therapies.

Because the neuroscience is still catching up, most of us still don’t really know WHY neurofeedback works so well. We have yet to really understand what the governing mechanisms are behind it. So, there ends up being a lot of in-fighting and rigidity and claiming territory which gets in the way of funding for larger research studies and acceptance in the broader scientific community.

And then there is the push back from main stream medicine. This includes physicians, researchers, and Big Pharma. They demand a standard of research that many believe to be too stringent. There are literally millions of hours of outcome studies that demonstrate the effectiveness of neurofeedback, but these are discounted a little too quickly, ostensibly because of various complaints about sample size and a lack of double blind, controlled research designs. Much of this criticism has more to do with economics and egos than genuine dedication to “science,” let alone patients’ needs.

But awareness of neurofeedback is growing! As the democratization of health care pushes forward—that is people taking their health into their own hands—neurofeedback is quickly becoming recognized as a powerful tool for mental, physical and emotional healing.
