Neurofeedback FAQ

What is neurofeedback? 

Neurofeedback is a type of biofeedback that uses real-time measurements of brain wave activity, measured through an EEG, to train the brain to self-regulate and optimize brain function. 

What conditions does neurofeedback treat?

NFB can treat a variety of different neurological and mental health conditions including: 

  • ADHD
  • Autism, PANS, PANDAS
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • PTSD and other stress related disorders
  • Headaches
  • TBI’s
  • Sleep Issues
  • Stroke Recovery
  • Athletic Peak Performance

Are there any side effects to neurofeedback treatment?

Neurofeedback is like training for your brain.  Therefore the most common side effects that can occur are brain fatigue or headaches.  If these side effects occur the training sessions will be modified to reduce any adverse reactions.

How many neurofeedback sessions do you need to see results?

You should start seeing some results/improvements from your first treatment, however, a series of 15-20 sessions is recommended for most people to obtain lasting results.  These sessions should be done at least once a week for consecutive weeks to achieve the best results.

How is HPN neurofeedback different from other forms of NFB?

HPN stands for High Performance Neurofeedback.  During a session, HPN Neurofeedback directly measures and tracks the electrical activity of the brain and then sends back to the brain ultra low power/minute signals that result in changes towards a more higher functioning brainwave pattern.  The HPN works to reset the brain and nudge it out of “stuck” and unhealthy brain wave patterns. As the brain becomes accustomed to functioning at a more flexible and healthier level, this leads to longer lasting and more permanent changes.

In comparison with other forms of neurofeedback, the HPN does not require a pre QEEG brain map to be done.  This is because the HPN is working off of direct real time feedback by each individual’s brainwave patterns, instead of training the brain towards pre-defined normative database findings.   HPN also does not require conscious effort on behalf of the patient. This patented form of neurofeedback has been shown to generally work faster and more effectively than other forms of neurofeedback.

How much does it cost?

  • Initial visit is $175 for an hour long appointment which includes a clinical intake and neurofeedback visit. 
  • Subsequent visits cost $150 per hour long session and $85 for a 30 minute session.
    • Hour long appointments include both HPN neurofeedback session and ROSHI neurofeedback session
  • We find that it takes about 15-20 sessions (once or twice per week) to attain lasting results.
  • We offer a package of 20 sessions and offer a 15% discount for prepayment of the whole program.
