What is EEG Neurotherapy?
One of the newest approaches to treating neurological and behavioral problems is EEG Neurotherapy, or Neurofeedback. Research has shown that individuals with ADD/ADHD have excessive slow brain waves (theta) and not enough fast wave activity (beta) during activities requiring concentration. Neurotherapy trains individuals to increase beta and decrease theta activity in order to normalize the brain wave activity associated with primary ADD/ADHD.
Research has shown that once the brain learns to regulate itself, it continues to do so. This natural approach provides the brain with a better, more efficient pattern for normal functioning, resulting in decreased symptoms of ADD/ADHD and other neurological based disorders. Better grades and improved relationships provide rapid boots of self-esteem.
Neurotherapy gives the individual a tool with which to change the level of various types of electrical activity in the brain. Studies have shown that once the brain learns to regulate itself, it continues to do so. The brain is amazingly adaptable and capable of learning. Research has shown that in treating disorders, biology must be addressed for treatment to be effective and long-lasting.
How is Neurotherapy Done?
Training is accomplished by utilizing a computer-based EEG monitoring system that processes signals from the brain and gives the individual immediate feedback by means of video displays and auditory responses. EEG Neurotherapy is a painless, non-invasive procedure. Gradually the brain responds to cues that are given and a learning of new brain waves takes place. This new pattern is one that is closer to what is normally observed in individuals without such symptoms. All of the disorders listed show up in the EEG in some way. By making this information available to the brain, and showing it how to make adjustments, it will do so.
EEG Photic Stimulation (EPS)
EPS is a form of Neurotherapy in which lights are driven by EEG frequencies and brain wave patterns. Unlike EEG Neurotherapy, it does not require active participation by the client. EPS helps reduce EEG slowing, a problem typical for people who are over-stressed, injured, depressed or traumatized. EPS is said to increase the "flexibility" of the brain by increasing the range and variability of dominant frequencies.
What is the Common Thread Between Disorders?
Disorders all have a neuro-physiological basis, that is, a basis in brain chemistry. Re-training the brain creates neuro-physiological changes which in turn impacts a variety of disorders. This has been proven through multiple research studies and pre/post outcomes studies.

Brief Clinical Reviews
Nash* reviewed numerous studies on the efficacy of EEG biofeedback for ADHD, finding that, as a group, they reported improved attention, IQ scores, behavior, and academic performance.
Moore* concluded in his review that alpha, theta,
and alpha-theta biofeedback is effective for the treatment of anxiety disorders,
Duffy* summarized the entire field by stating,
“The literature, which lacks any negative study of substance, suggests that …EEG
biofeedback… should play a major therapeutic role in many difficult areas.
