At the Scottsdale Neurofeedack Institute we treat a wide variety of disorders in both children and adults using a multimodal treatment approach. Our primary choice of treatment is QEEG brain map based Neurofeedback, a non-invasive treatment listed by the American Academy of Pediatrics as a "Level 1, Best Support" evidence-based child and adolescent psychosocial intervention.
Our services are based on those techniques that clinical research have demonstrated to be most effective. These services include biofeedback and counseling. Our program is updated continually to integrate the newest strategies being developed.
What is Neurofeedback?
(NFB), also called neurotherapy, neurobiofeedback or EEG biofeedback (EEGBF) is a therapy technique that presents the user with real-time feedback on their brainwave activity, as measured by electrodes on the scalp, typically in the form of a video display, sound or vibration. Years of clinical research has shown that certain aberrant electrical activity
(brainwaves) in the brain correlates with health disorders such as Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD/ADHD), Anxiety, Depression, and Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD).
Dysfunctional electrical activity in the brain is detected by performing an initial QEEG Brain Map . Once the problematic brainwaves activity is normalized as determined by a normative database, the initial problems presented by the user subside.
