Neurofeedback FAQ

Does the Neurofeedback session hurt? Is it Invasive? Will it electrocute my brain?
Neurofeedback is non-invasive. These procedures are not sending any electricity to your brain, but reading the electrical activity that is happening inside your head.

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 need to have their medications reduced as neurofeedback begins to work.

How many sessions of Neurofeedback does it take?
People respond to neurofeedback differently. The industry standard is 2 times a week with a total of 40 sessions. However, it all depends 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 from the neurofeedback.

Will my results from neurofeedback go away over time?
Results from neurofeedback will maintain overtime 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. We would be happy to send you publications on the efficacy of neurofeedback.

Do I have to do a Qeeg to do neurofeedback?
Yes. The Qeeg allows us to see what parts of the brain are dysregulated and guides us choose 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.
