Neurofeedback therapy can treat many symptoms without the use of prescription drugs. It’s a pain free holistic treatment that has been a breakthrough for a wide range of people from elite athletes to children.

As neurofeedback is gaining popularity, more and more physicians, therapists and practitioners are using this brain therapy as an alternative approach to treat their patients.

A Simple Treatment With Lasting Results

Microcurrent direct neurofeedback is a holistic treatment that works through the nervous system to treat the whole person, not just a single symptom.

A tiny electromagnetic pulse is sent to the patient that can help “un-train” disruptive brain patterns. While this pulse can’t be felt, it helps the brain “re-train” itself to create healthier, more productive patterns. Treatment lasts about 10-15 minutes and requires little to no work by the patient.

Top 5 Benefits of Neurofeedback Therapy

1. Anxiety Relief

Anxiety disorders are the most common adult mental illness in the United States, affecting 40 million adults annually. Anxiety is one of the more self-diagnosable symptoms but manifests itself differently for everyone. People can often experience it physically, mentally or even in their behaviors. People can commonly experience:

  • Fear
  • Anger
  • Irritability
  • Sweat
  • Fatigue
  • Worry
  • Unwanted or racing thoughts
  • Panic

With neurofeedback, our patients are able to experience both immediate and long-term relief, not only reducing how often the patient experiences anxiety, but also increasing the patient’s tolerance for situations that would normally cause episodes of anxiety. Neurofeedback is a respected therapy to work towards finding a cure for anxiety and Brain Rx has seen great success with patients seeking treatment for their anxiety.

2. ADD & ADHD? Try a Drug-Free and Non-Invasive Treatment Instead

Got something wrong? Just take a pill! Over the last few decades, the use of prescription drugs has continued to rise. The common practice is to prescribe drugs, even if we are unsure of the long-term effects these drugs may potentially have on our minds and bodies. The Center for Disease Control (CDC) has recommended that children under 6 years of age who have attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) should receive holistic therapies before taking prescription drugs. Even with that recommendation, 50% of the over 6 million children diagnosed with ADHD don’t receive such services, instead 75% are receiving drugs as treatment.

As a safe, drug-free and pain free treatment, Neurofeedback Therapy should be one of the your first starting points to consider before just taking pills that we’ve all been conditioned to do. Neurofeedback for children has been very successful as a natural treatment for ADHD as well as other mental conditions children are commonly diagnosed with.

3. Peak Performance and Mental Clarity

Many people experience moments where they are unaware of their surroundings or struggle to focus on one task until completion. Brain fog can come in waves or remain throughout the entire day, making what was once an easy task far more difficult. An untouchable cloud sits on your mind as issues with memory and information processing become apparent. Whether juggling too many tasks or picking up a task to never finish it, millions of people suffer from mental clarity issues and have looked towards neurofeedback to reach their peak performance and clear their own Brain fog.

Brain Rx Neurofeedback in action:

Anthony Ezeakunne is an ex-NFL athlete and owner of Ace2 Performance, a personal training company focused on helping athletes reach the next level and has personally used Brain Rx to improve his own performance:

“It was a lot easier than I thought it would be, I pretty much just had to sit there and smile. It took about 15 minutes and I could start feeling the effects right when we started. I’m pretty in-tune with my body and have really good body control, but after the treatment I felt a real improvement.”

“I was able to do a single-legged pistol squat with my eyes closed which I have been training to do for a while and wasn’t able to until after the treatment.”

“Even the next few days I felt more alert and focused and I was more easily able to transition through clients and saw even improvements in my own workouts.”

Like many of our patients, Anthony was able to see immediate and lasting results on both a physical and mental level.

4. Improved Emotional Stability

Every day, people encounter situations where they may need to keep their cool or hold back tears. However difficult this is for most; some people experience uncontrollable waves of mood or emotional changes without explanation. Often times, people can experience day-to-day drastic changes in mood, feeling on top of the world one moment and then down in the dumps the next.

Mood disorder symptoms affects 20.9 million American adults, impacting daily activities and negatively affecting work, family, friendly and romantic relationships. Neurofeedback changes the disruptive brain wave patterns which cause patients to have mood swings and random negative thoughts and feelings.

With our treatment, patients are better able to regulate their mood and emotions as well as work through difficult tasks while keeping their cool and experiencing normal mood changes.

5. Less Stress Towards Triggering Situations

Millions of Americans suffer from disorders in which a simple or complex trigger can induce a sense of panic or anxiety. Some triggers are obvious, such as seeing news of an assault on TV, while others are less clear and may be harder to identify. Triggers can commonly cause a feeling of unexpected fear and anxiety, leaving a person in a state of panic. This fear trigger activates the “fight-or-flight” response in the nervous system, as the body and mind prepare to take on danger and protect the person from harm.

Neurofeedback directly works through the nervous system, it is able to soothe the sympathetic nervous system, increasing the threshold for which it deems the patient is in a dangerous situation and thus better handle triggering situations that would once cause a fear-driven response.
