Conditions Clinically Responsive To Neurofeedback:
Your Brain Is Like A Symphony:
It Needs To Be In Tune To Function Properly.
Your brain is a complex organ with hundreds of actions taking place every minute. Much like a symphony, when all musicians are in sync the sound is harmonious. But if one musician is out of tune, the overall sound is affected. Brainwaves operate in much the same way, working together to keep your mind and body in sync and running smoothly. But if any of your brainwaves are off, it can impact your entire system negatively.
If You Live Near Winnetka, Neurofeedback Can Help Tune The Brain Safely.
Neurofeedback is a computer based method for teaching the brain to function in a more balanced and healthful way. It does so by shifting the way the brain produces and distributes its electrical energy. The goal is to improve the brain’s ability to self-regulate, maintain flexibility, and smoothly shift between different states.
Why We offer Brain Based Therapies
Many patients in the Northshore & Winnetka area have come to us after seeing their primary physician, who only offered drugs for their symptoms. But drugs do not work very well on neurological problems. We know all too well that the root cause often lies in the brain. In our experience, once a patient sees their customized brain map, it becomes very clear how to address those issues using our particular therapies.
The QEEG Brain Map.
Accurately Identify Problems In The Brain.
The heart of our system is the Quantitative Electroencephalography (QEEG), also known as a brain map. This non-invasive tool allows us to precisely identify the areas of your brain that are not running optimally. The QEEG is designed to objectively and scientifically evaluate a person’s brainwave patterns and takes the guesswork out of determining a person’s condition.
The procedure consists of placing a snug cap on the head. Embedded within the cap are 12 small sensors that are designed to measure and record electrical activity (or brainwaves) coming from the brain. These sensors DO NOT put any electrical current into the brain – they simply record signals coming from the brain.
Frequently Asked Questions in Winnetka
How Can Neurofeedback Work On So Many Conditions?
Many brain issues are caused by irregular brainwaves. Neurofeedback works because it does not directly target any conditions and symptoms…It corrects irregular brainwaves and modifies timing patterns in the brain. This is achieved through multiple neurofeedback sessions, where the brain is re-trained into making normal patterns. The result is an improvement in brain regulation, which then impacts a variety of symptoms.
Is Neurofeedback Dangerous?
Absolutely not! Neurofeedback is safe because it is non-invasive, requires no drugs and does not produce any radiation like a CT scan does. The goal of neurofeedback is to identify irregular brainwave patterns and make very subtle corrections. With multiple sessions, the brain will learn to self-regulate.
Are Drugs Needed?
No. Neurofeedback does not require anything more than your attention for 30 minutes per session. In fact, with each successful session you can start eliminating any medications you are taking.
A Brain Map Sounds Scary. Does It Hurt?
No! A brain map is simply a surface scan of your scalp which picks up the electrical impulses we call brainwaves. We do use conductive paste, but there are no shocks, no pain and no discomfort. All you do is stare at the wall for 6 minutes with your eyes open, and six minutes with your eyes closed. The computer does the rest.
Why Haven’t I heard of Neurofeedback?
It’s been in use since the 1970’s. With the advancement of computer technology neurofeedback has been able to move from laboratory research to a system that can be administered in an office setting.
We have many patient success stories to share with you.

Children with ADD/ADHD generally have deficits in executive function: the ability to think and plan ahead, organize, control impulses, and complete tasks. So a parent must take over as executive, providing extra guidance while a child gradually acquires executive skills of their own. Although the symptoms of ADHD can be nothing short of exasperating, […]
