Neurotherapy and Neurofeedback
Neurotherapy, Brainwave Training, EEG Neurofeedback or EEG Biofeedback

Neurotherapy (also sometimes referred to as Brainwave Training, EEG Neurofeedback or EEG Biofeedback) involves an advanced form of biofeedback which requires highly specialized computer equipment to accurately enhance and magnify human Brainwave electrical impulses. When the patient is provided with this "feedback" through auditory or visual feedback, he or she begins to learn to produce different Brainwave patterns in order to attain distinctly healthier states of mind. This is an entirely non-invasive procedure which is extremely relaxing and pleasant for the patient. Individuals usually participate in 2 to 6 sessions per week for several weeks or months, depending on the conditions for which they are being treated.

Scientific Results:

Scientific studies have shown that a variety of disorders are significantly relieved by this process, including addictions, Depression, Anxiety, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, Posttraumatic Stress Disorder, Stroke, Epilepsy, Tourette's Disorder, Tic Disorders, Autism, Asperger's Disorder, Closed-head injuries (Traumatic Brain Injuries or TBI) Pre-Menstrual Syndrome, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, and even learning disorders. Many patients are referred for Neurotherapy treatment by their family physician and it is common for insurance companies to reiumburse patients for Neurotherapy services, depending upon the coverage of the individual's policy.

Treatment Without Medication:

Neurotherapy enjoys a considerable level of appeal in part due to the fact that it provides highly effective treatment without medication. In some instances, however, patients may begin Neurotherapy while under the care of a physician who is treating the symptoms with medication. Frequently these patients are able to gradually taper off and even discontinue their medications after beginning the Neurotherapy program.

Neurotherapy:

At the Peak Performance Institute, we use the term "Neurotherapy" to signify the comprehensive approach which calls upon EEG Neurofeedback techniques as well as traditional psychological therapies to treat a wide range of disorders. We believe strongly in the importance of an accurate diagnosis to a successful intervention. Before beginning treatment, a comprehensive battery of Psychological and Neuropsychological evaluations is administered to provide this necessary information. We also value greatly our relationships with other professionals such as pediatricians, family physicians, and psychiatrists. We carefully coordinate our intervention with the patient's treating physician, coordinating every aspect of the program in order to deliver to the patient the best possible care.
