ADD & ADHD
Discover the full potential of you or your child’s brain!
People with ADD can be easily distracted, impulsive and inattentive. ADD is not a disease or a discipline problem – it is a Brain Problem. It requires a process that targets the brain specifically and does so without drugs. With neurofeedback, children and adults can increase self-control, attention, focus and reduce impulsivity.
Imagine how much easier life would be if you could eliminate the loss of focus and concentration associated with ADD? Or put a stop to the fidgeting, outbursts, and overall poor behavioral control due to ADHD?
What does neurofeedback do?
Neurofeedback monitors brainwaves in real time and sends signals to help the brain refocus and function better. It does not directly target conditions and symptoms: it targets irregular brainwaves and modifies timing patterns in the brain. This is achieved over multiple neurofeedback sessions as the brain is re-trained into normal patterns. The result is an improvement in brain regulation which can impact a variety of symptoms.
Think of your brain as a musical quartet. When all musicians are in sync, the sound is harmonious. But if one musician is out of tune, the overall sound is affected. Brainwaves operate in much the same way, working together to keep your mind and body in sync and running smoothly. If any brainwaves are off, it can impact your entire system negatively. Many common conditions like ADD, ADHD, anxiety, panic atacks and depression can occur when brainwaves are running too fast or too slow. Neurofeedback teaches the brain to regulate its brainwaves properly which can result in better overall health.
One parent’s story
Our patients have been telling us that neurofeedback therapy has made a noticeable difference for themselves or their children, at school, at work and at home.
“Michael had problems with social interactions, sensory issues, self-care, attention and focus. It was hard to go anywhere with him because he would not sit still and couldn’t communicate with anyone. We noticed he had problems at the young age of 9 months old and really realized it when he couldn’t speak at 2 years old. We attempted many therapies and participated in various specialized school programs. Despite our skepticism we are amazed that even after two treatments we are seeing him improve. Here we are after several weeks and he is a totally different kid. He is reading music, playing the piano, can carry a conversation and just received his first academic school award. As once exhausted and stressed parents, we highly recommend this therapy program. We wouldn’t have tried anything else for Michael if we had known about this sooner.”–Wiliam& Rubi S.
How does neurofeedback work?
Neurofeedback helps the brain refocus and operate better. The process is non-invasive, safe and requires very little effort by the client.
Neurofeedback has 3 main goals:
- Identify irregular brainwaves (Alpha, Beta, Delta and Theta)
- Guide those brainwaves back into regular patterns
- Teach the brain to maintain regular patterns permanently
Neurofeedback monitors brainwaves on the surface of your head by placing small electrodes on your scalp. For the next 30 minutes, you get to watch a movie of your choice, listen to music or listen to audible tones. That is all that is required of you. It is non-invasive, uses no drugs and does not involve any radiation.
During a normal session, the computer is monitoring your brainwaves for any that are out of the normal range. When it finds one, the system triggers a response that changes the movie or music. This change is subtle enough to get your brain’s attention and make your brain focus more. Refocusing corrects the irregular brainwaves which then move into the normal range. At that time, the movie or music will resume normally. This process is called Operant Conditioning. Over the course of multiple sessions, the brain eventually learns to make healthy patterns on its own. At that time, no further neurofeedback sessions are needed
