What is Neurofeedback?
Neurofeedback is a drug-free solution to training your brain to function at an optimal level. Through training specific areas of the brain, you will create new neurons and neural pathways. Neurofeedback is an excellent lasting solution for those experiencing sleep issues, attention problems, anxiety, depression, or want to get the most out of their brain.
How does it work?
We place sensors on specific areas of the scalp to listen in on brainwave activity using an EEG. The activity is amplified and analyzed many times each second. When the activity at the locations meets special training criteria, you are positively rewarded with a pleasant feedback tone. Most clients receive over 500 feedback tones in a session. This positive reinforcement shapes your brainwaves toward normalization and regulated performance over the course of multiple sessions leading to lasting changes.

Focus of TNNFB
These mental and action-based elements are the foundational components that we focus on when identifying our clients’ neurological state.
Neurofeedback is a drug-free treatment for attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and attention deficit disorder (ADD) as well as other behaviors that manifest as dysregulation. Brain training addresses the underlying issues in brain performance that lead to difficulty concentrating, impulsiveness, and disorganization. By addressing the root causes, our brain-based trainings lead to sustained changes and reduction in symptoms.
Depression, Anxiety, and Stress
The rigors of work, school, and relationships lead us all to experience periods of anxiety, depression, and stress. We first identify through brainmapping (QEEG) the areas of the brain that are dysregulated. Through subsequent training, the brain learns to regulate and in turn reduces the symptoms, giving lasting relief.
Getting a good night’s rest is vital to having a healthy brain and lifestyle. A full night of sleep (>7 hours) reduces the likelihood of chronic conditions occurring including depression, diabetes, and arthritis. Brainmapping (QEEG) reveals issues that are related to poor sleep quality. Neurofeedback promotes flexibility in the brain to calm down at bedtime, allowing most clients to naturally fall asleep and stay asleep. We also recommend other interventions such as diet, exercise, and sleep hygiene practices.
Concussion and Trauma
After a concussion or traumatic brain injury (TBI), it is common to experience headaches, fatigue, memory loss, mood changes, and attention issues that can last for years if left untreated. We first map your brain to understand the impacted areas. Neurofeedback promotes the growth of new brain cells and connections in those areas. Once trained, many clients regain their quality of life prior to the injury.
One in ten Americans battles some type of addiction. Whether it is a substance addiction, behavioral addiction, or an eating disorder, neurofeedback can help you self-regulate your brain, reduce cravings, and restore healthy brain functioning.
Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), or negative unprocessed experience, is a debilitating condition where a person relives the initial traumatic experience as if it is current and first person. Our method finds the areas of the brain that have been impacted by the trauma and restores those areas to optimal functioning. In most cases, if the client is not currently working with a therapist, we will recommend a brainspotting expert to work alongside the patient in a therapeutic setting. Our design of neurofeedback and brainspotting is based on the work of Dr. Bessel van der Kolk, the developer of the PTSD diagnosis.
Flow states are those rare moments where you are fully immersed in an activity and able to optimize all aspects of mental and physical performance to peak levels. We help professional and collegiate athletes, performers, musicians, writers, and business leaders to unleash their fullest potential through brain training. Our custom protocols promote optimal communication between both sides of the brain, the biological marker of flow. The result is greater clarity, focus, creativity, and awareness.
