Neurofeedback Near Me
Eliminate migraines, anxiety, insomnia, headaches, learning troubles and concentration difficulties without using drugs
Rebalance the brain in a non-invasive way, without drugs
Neurofeedback, (sometimes called neurofeedback therapy or neurotherapy), is a simple procedure that helps the brain rebalance itself without the use of pharmaceuticals. It is a safe intervention with few if any side effects. It is a subset of biofeedback therapy. Biofeedback is the process that allows a person to adjust their body or brain by having something outside of them indicate an inner feeling. A mood ring, for example, changes color in response to your emotions telling you what your emotional state is. Though this is a silly example, it shows the power of the body-mind to use an outside source to adjust internally.
Neurofeedback does the same thing using EEG. By watching something on the screen or having other stimuli of one of the senses (usually, touch or hearing if not sight), the person can adjust their brainwaves. Typically, the person sits in front of a computer watching a screen. When they use the type of brainwaves that the provider prescribes, the thing on the screen moves faster and slows when the person’s brainwaves don’t match. This allows the patient to calm their brains and improve concentration, sleep, and confidence; decrease pain and anxiety, and stabilize their mood.
Look at the brain, decide what the problem is, and let it repair itself
Not all neurofeedback therapy works the same way. I primarily use a form of neurofeedback called LENS neurofeedback therapy. LENS is short for Low Energy Neurofeedback System. I have received extensive training from its inventor, Len Ochs. Whereas traditional neurofeedback retrains the brain by telling the mind what to do, LENS allows the brain to decide what it needs for itself. It’s like the brain holds a mirror up to itself, sees what it is doing, and can then adjust itself. I explain more in other articles about LENS. Research suggests that LENS allows for broken neural connections to reform. This eliminates symptoms and improving cognitive function.
Get powerful results in just a few minutes
LENS is also valuable because it is fast, and it works without a conscious effort by the patient. Because it only takes a few minutes of sitting quietly to get significant effects, LENS lets me work with many patients who are unable to do traditional neurofeedback treatment because they can’t watch a screen or sit still. It is appropriate for active children and severely disabled people as well as for adults. In over 10 years of using LENS, I have helped thousands of patients improve their lives and ease the symptoms of attention deficit disorder (ADD/ADHD), Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), autism, traumatic brain injury ( TBI), Reactive Attachment Disorder (RAD), migraines and other headaches, post-concussion syndrome, depression, PTSD, and anxiety. If you have one of these conditions or symptoms, call me today.
Pro-bono support for veterans
I provide a limited number of pro-bono neurofeedback therapy spots for veterans who don’t have alternative medical coverage or a high deductible.
Help is on its way
I look forward to assisting you or your loved one to quickly and dramatically improve your wellbeing through LENS neurofeedback treatment. While I do offer Online Doctor Consultations, I only provide neurofeedback in Honolulu Hawaii, Portland, Oregon and sometimes on the North Shore of Oahu. Schedule a session today.
