Whether the symptom is inattentiveness, hyperactivity, or a combination, it is all about what is going on in your brain. If you have trouble paying attention or staying on task there is dysregulation in the brain. Neurofeedback can train the brain to perform in a more regulated manner.
Addiction is a brain disease. It starts off with liking something, a substance or a behavior, and the brain releases dopamine, a feel good transmitter. Next is wanting, and then needing. The neurons and dendrites get confused and they fire and wire in a dysregulated state. With the 3 N’s, neurofeedback, neuromodulation, and neuroplasticity you can rewire your brain back to a healthy and free state.
If you wake up asking yourself how to stop anxiety, your brain waves might be too fast or your brain may be stuck, lacking neuroplasticity. The answer is one of the 3 N’s: neuromodulation, neurofeedback or neuroplasticity. Or, a combination of all three.
If you are on the autism spectrum, your brain processes information differently. You may pay attention differently and react differently. Your social cueing ability may be missing and communication may be challenging. With neurofeedback, we can train your brain to process information differently.
We think of sports concussions or automobile accidents but actually concussions are a part of everyday life. If you have hit your head, you have changed the way neurons and dendrites are firing and wiring which can change your emotional and cognitive abilities. Often times you need to jump start the brain again. Neurofeedback can increase blood flow and oxygen and teach those neurons and dendrites how to fire together.
Chronic pain is oftentimes hard to diagnose and usually is treated with medication. But pain lives in the brain. Oftentimes, treating the brain can reduce the pain in the body. Studies show that pain can also affect a person’s memory and concentration. Learn about where the body meets the brain.
Communicating effectively is a good way to lower your stress. If you can learn to recognize and understand the different communication styles, this can help you navigate challenging situations and have open and honest conversations both personally and professionally. Our communication style can depend on the situation and the person you are talking with but we all tend to have one dominant mode and sometimes we get stuck in it. Learn to communicate in a way that encourages open, honest dialogue and allows everyone to express their needs and opinions.
At times we all lack confidence. Confidence is more than just a feeling, it is the ability to take action. The prefrontal cortex in the brain is activated when we are thinking positive. Confidence is what enables us to make important decisions based on imperfect information. It comes from a calm brain.
No one chooses depression but it is most common in ages 18 to 25 and over half of US adults will experience it at any given time. If you have no motivation, feel hopeless, feel disconnected, there are ways to balance the brain that will make your life a whole lot more enjoyable.
Fear is not something you are born with. It is something that we learn from life experiences when you got hurt or saw someone else get hurt and learned to fear that situation. Fear exists only in the mind. If you go looking for it you will only find it there. It can affect every aspect of our lives. A fear may seem ridiculous but the reaction it creates in your mind and body are real. The brain needs to process the fear to let it go.
There is a clear link between sleep and good mental health. Are you one of the ten million Americans using prescribed sleep aides and over-the-counter aides? One powerful alternative is the neurocognitive approach. A combination of neurofeedback and CBT has shown a good change in sleep patterns and obtaining restful, health-giving sleep.
Many of us learn differently. Dyslexia is a language-based disorder and there are nonverbal disorders that impact our visual and spatial awareness. In many ways, ADHD is a learning difference. People with learning differences are smart and resourceful, they just learn differently. With our neurofeedback techniques, we can help you overcome, adapt, and learn to the best of your ability.
People ask all the time, is it normal to forget? If memory loss is affecting your daily quality of life, it becomes too much to deal with. Memory is a whole-brain function, and as we age neural pathways get shut down. Connectivity is a big part of memory, if those neurons aren’t firing they aren’t wiring. The 3 N’s – neuroplasticity, neuromodulation, and neurofeedback can definitely increase communication and open neural pathways.
Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, or OCD, is the brain’s attempt to control anxiety and fear by implementing compulsions, rituals, magical thinking, and negative thought spirals. Left untreated, OCD can hinder many areas of your life and relationships. With our neurotherapy, we can help retrain your brain, bringing peace and security.
A panic attack is a sudden episode of intense fear when there is no real danger or apparent cause. They can occur at all stages and with different symptoms, but all are frightening.

It is important to recognize that approximately 70% of Americans will experience traumatic events. PTSD is considered a mental illness that comes from various trauma experiences. The trauma lives in the subconscious of your brain, not the consciousness. Your brain has to let it go subconsciously, and neurofeedback will help with that.
In today’s world, self-care is needed more than ever. We are dealing with national trauma, coping with stress caused by the pandemic, uncertainty, grief over losses, feelings of loneliness and isolation, and dramatic shifts in lifestyle. This can lead one to feel drained, burnt out, anxious, depressed, tempted back to addictions, or angrier and more volatile than usual. The solution includes science-backed, neurologically healthy self care. With our team to guide and assist you, you won’t have to walk this path alone.
Stress is a normal part of life but too much will affect you physically and emotionally. Stress affects memory and many other brain functions, like mood and anxiety. Stress creates inflammation which is shown to impact heart health. When the brain is stressed out, it is not able to effectively use all the resources and one part may become overly taxed.
Trauma registers on the brain when a deeply distressing life event or series of events rocks the brain’s sense of security to the core. Sometimes this can lead to a diagnosis of PTSD, or Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, affecting the ability to focus, feel safe, sleep soundly, form healthy attachments, recall memories, learn new skills, manage stress, and more. Secondary trauma can develop after seasons of exposure to others’ trauma, or caring for traumatized loved ones. With our caring team and sound technology, we can help you cope and rewrite your brain patterns to find tranquility and healing.
