Neurofeedback FAQs

Does the Neurofeedback session hurt? Is it Invasive?
Neurofeedback is non-invasive. The technology reads the electrical activity inside your head. It does not send any electricity to your brain.

Can I take my medications while doing Neurofeedback?
Yes, and we would be happy to work with your doctor/psychiatrist. It is our experience that many individuals can reduce their medication dosage as Neurofeedback begins to work.

How many sessions of Neurofeedback does it take?
People respond to Neurofeedback differently. The industry standard is 2 sessions/week with a total of 40 sessions. However, frequency and length will depend on the person and the goal of Neurofeedback. We like to start with 20 sessions and then do a mini qEEG to track the progress and improvement.

Will my results from Neurofeedback go away over time?
Results from Neurofeedback will maintain over time if you do 2 sessions a week over an extended period of time, although some people do come in for tune-ups.

Is there research that backs up Neurofeedback?
Yes. Various videos, publications and presentations regarding EEGs and neurofeedback can be found on the Media tab. We would also be happy to send you specific publications based on your questions or specific case.

Do I have to do a qEEG to do Neurofeedback?
Yes. The qEEG allows us to see which areas of the brain are dysregulated and guides us in choosing the Neurofeedback protocols.

Does insurance cover Neurofeedback?
Insurance is starting to cover Neurofeedback, especially for following diagnoses: ADHD, traumatic brain injury (TBI), and substance abuse. We provide documentation for you to file reimbursement regardless of diagnosis.
