WHAT TO EXPECT
Heidi will spend the first session with you discussing your concerns and goals. She will then connect sensors to your scalp and ears with water soluble paste, start and monitor your session, which consists of listening to music through earbuds. This is a simple, painless and very relaxing process. The software plays music (or movies for children) while you recline and relax; you can even fall asleep, if you desire. Nothing more is required of you. During the session, the computer software monitors and alerts your central nervous system when it experiences turbulence, that is, not functioning as smoothly as it could, and the music is momentarily interrupted. This subtle cue alerts your brain that it is operating inefficiently. With repeated training sessions, the brain learns to “reset” itself and function in this new, more efficient, flexible and resilient way. The information being provided to the central nervous system allows the brain to engage in phase state shifting, quite necessary in order to not get stuck in old patterns. All of this learning is non-invasive and happens outside your conscious awareness. All you need to do is relax and enjoy the approximately 35 minute session.
HOW MANY SESSIONS ARE REQUIRED
Often change is noticed within a few sessions from being more relaxed to improved sleep. For some, change takes more time. Depending on the person and the condition being addressed, the number of sessions will vary. Most people find that 15-20 weekly sessions begin to bring the level of improvement they are seeking. Some conditions can take more.
With enough sessions, changes from Neurofeedback tend to be permanent, with "tune-up" here and there, especially after extreme stress or trauma.
DOES INSURANCE COVER NFB?
Most insurance does not cover NFB. Payment may be made by cash, check or credit card at time of services. If you wish, we can provide you with a Health Insurance Claim Form with the appropriate billing code that you may submit to your insurance carrier.
