YES! Actually it is a resounding yes as the American Academy of Pediatrics and the American Psychological Association have both endorsed Neurofeedback as a top level clinical treatment and the FDA has regulated it for stress reduction.

NASA uses neurofeedback to train astronauts. The US military uses it to train their Special Forces, and have adopted neurofeedback as a new intervention for PTSD and traumatic brain injury (TBI).

No. Each person’s program is individualized for their specific needs based upon their specific brain map that is interpreted by a licensed and certified Neurodevelopmental Specialist. On-going care is supervised at all times by Dr. Leigh, Board Certified Neurofeedback Doctor. We offer many types of brain-based treatments and we will discuss which one or combination of treatments would serve your needs best. You will be working one-on-one with the professionals at Chapel Hill Brain Centre who will monitor and assist your progress, working with you to assure best results.
Sessions are quite pleasant. One child even asked to have his birthday party at Chapel Hill Brain Centre. Dr. Leigh informed him that we don’t do that (yet!).
Patients recline comfortably in a chair while watching a brain-generated movie that reacts to their brain energy status. Through visual and auditory feedback, your brain learns how to quiet brain energy associated with low performance and increase energy associated with optimal brain function. Just like physical exercise strengthens and develops specific muscles, the more your brain is exercised into reaching a new, more efficient operating mode, the better and stronger it gets at it. Like any new skill, it simply requires feedback and practice.
Yes. Neurofeedback is completely non-intrusive and safe. In the same way that muscles strengthen after use, neurofeedback strengthens neural-pathways with specifically tailored exercises. It is simply a learning technique. In the 50 year history of neurofeedback, nobody has ever been harmed.
No. Because neurofeedback is essentially structured exercises for your brain, the term ‘side effect’ isn’t applicable in the same sense as for medications. Unlike medication, nothing is put into the body or brain.
Your Goals…Your Gains. We create and implement your training to meet your goals, and you can expect to meet those goals. Most people report a reduction in their challenges and a happier, calmer, more balanced version of themselves. We like to describe the gradual organic set of changes that happens as the “qualitative, subtle shift” that can drastically improve the quality of your life. Many people report a feeling of being more comfortable in their own skin; confident, feeling more like themselves – alert and relaxed, alive and quiet all at the same time.
