Neurotherapy is a medication-free and non-invasive form of treatment involving neurostimulation and brain training, which can lead to enhanced emotional, cognitive, and behavioral regulation and efficiency. This type of therapy is effective in addressing ADHD, anxiety, depression, and autism in addition to many other conditions.
Jason F. Mishalanie, Ph.D., Clinical Director of Peak Neuroscience, is BCIA board certified in neurofeedback and trained in the assessment, diagnosis, and psychological treatment of children, adolescents, and adults. Dr. Mishalanie, along with the staff at Peak Neuroscience, will provide you or your child with a specialized approach to therapy.
How does it work?
Our neurotherapy process is like learning to ride a bike.
Initially, you’ll need training wheels to guide you. Neurostimulation is like training wheels on a bike. The brain copies the frequencies it is given. We demonstrate to the brain what we would like it to do. Then we remove the training wheels and test your riding capabilities with neurofeedback. Your brain learns how to behave by mimicking the frequencies it is asked to make and, in time, it creates these frequencies on its own.
We often begin intensively (between two and five sessions weekly). The degree of intensity depends on the severity of the condition. We have learned that, in some cases, undergoing one session per week at the onset of therapy does not produce reliable results. Over time, we reduce the number of sessions until the individual’s brain is behaving in the desired way, reliably and sustainably.
Your brain then knows how to behave just like you know how to ride a bike (once you’ve learned).
