Getting started with neurofeedback
We offer an affordable rental option designed for at-home neurofeedback. Our technology partner, BrainBit, is one of the leading neurofeedback companies in the field and have designed their devices with comfort and practical utility in mind. Our clients have the option to conduct neurofeedback training sessions from the comfort of their own homes, eliminating the need for frequent visits to our clinic. This accessibility can lead to more consistent and more frequent training with improved results more quickly. The at-home system is also the more cost-effective option compared to ongoing clinic-based neurofeedback therapy.

A word about expectations and outcomes with NFB
Neurofeedback can be a promising avenue for managing a variety of conditions, but it's important to approach it with realistic expectations and dedication. Here's what you should keep in mind:
Realistic Expectations: Understand that neurofeedback is not a magic solution. It can help improve many conditions, but it may not completely eliminate every symptom. Set achievable goals and be patient with the process.
Active Participation: Success in neurofeedback depends on your active involvement. It's not a passive treatment. You must engage in the training process, stay committed, and work closely with your healthcare provider.
Consistency Is Key: Consistent training is essential for seeing results. Make a schedule and stick to it. Regular and ongoing sessions are more likely to lead to positive outcomes.
Communication: Maintain open communication with your healthcare provider. Share your progress, concerns, and any changes in your symptoms. This feedback will help tailor the neurofeedback protocol to your specific needs.
Lifestyle Factors: Neurofeedback is most effective when combined with a healthy lifestyle. A balanced diet, regular exercise, and stress management can complement the benefits of neurofeedback.
Complementary Strategies: Consider combining neurofeedback with other evidence-based treatments, such as behavioral therapy or medication, as recommended by your healthcare provider.
Individual Variability: Remember that responses to neurofeedback vary from person to person. What works for one individual may not work the same way for another. Be open to adjusting the training based on your unique needs.
Long-Term Commitment: Think of neurofeedback as a long-term commitment. Positive changes may take time, and maintenance sessions might be necessary to sustain the benefits. A typical course of neurofeedback is 20-40 sessions.
Final Outcomes: No treatment option is 100% guaranteed. Though neurofeedback has shown efficacy in treatment, it should not be expected to completely eliminate symptoms or be a replacement for medication.
