Neurofeedback:
Therapy for Your Brain

DR. SURUCHI CHANDRA | NEUROTHERAPY SERVICES

Sometimes talk therapy isn't enough.

That's because your brain's biology can also affect how you think, feel, and function. In mental health conditions, brainwave patterns can get stuck in unhealthy patterns associated with brain fog, depression, and fatigue. Neurofeedback is an innovative treatment approach that helps your brain retrain itself to support healthier brainwave activity.

Neurofeedback uses the language of the brain to create biological change.

How does neurofeedback treatment work?


SIT BACK AND RELAX

Our neurotherapy clinicians start by helping you get comfortable and placing electrodes on your scalp to obtain a real-time measurement of your brainwave activity (i.e. electroencephalography, or EEG).


LET YOUR BRAIN DO THE WORK

Unlike talk therapy, neurofeedback doesn't ask you to actively process your thoughts and feelings. Instead, the EEG communicates with your brain directly, while you watch a movie, read a book, or listen to music.


FEEL YOUR BRAIN CHANGE

When your brainwave activity moves into a healthier state, the EEG rewards your brain with positive feedback. With repeated sessions, your brain consolidates these improvements for more long-term changes.

What does neurofeedback treatment look like?

NEUROFEEDBACK IN THE NEWS

"The relief I got from neurofeedback was like a deep cleaning for my brain that I never got from traditional therapy. It was like unclogging a kitchen sink."

Neurofeedback is a painless and non-invasive procedure that simply offers the brain the opportunity to learn new and healthier patterns of activity. No serious or long-term risks have been identified when neurofeedback is done with a qualified mental health provider.

Occasionally, patients may notice temporary fatigue and an increase in symptoms. These symptoms are usually mild and resolve within 24 hours. With proper adjustments to the treatment protocol, they do not typically recur.

Yes, we welcome the opportunity to support patients who are working with other therapists or doctors for complementary treatments.

Coverage for Neurofeedback services varies based on insurance plan, provider, and condition treated. We recommend contacting your insurance company to find out whether Neurotherapy may be covered for you. Before scheduling a visit, our team can confirm which code will be used for that session.
