Neurofeedback, also called EEG Biofeedback, is a state-of-the-art, non-invasive, drugless method for teaching the brain to function in a more balanced and healthful way. A simple and pleasant learning modality that can help shift the way the brain produces and distributes its electrical energy. Four divisions of electrical impulses made by our brain, Delta, Theta, Alpha, and Beta are called "Frequency Bands". These Frequency Bands tell us which parts of your brain are active and which frequency bands the brain should be using to complete a given task, activity or should be most active during different states of mind.
Frequency Bands and Daily Life
During normal daily activities such as balancing our checkbooks or following directions in class, certain areas of our brain will nee to be active and using the faster frequency called Beta. On the other hand, if after a long day we wish to relax and wind down, a different part of the brain will need to be activated using the slower brainwave frequency called Alpha. The goal of Neurofeedback is to improve the brain's ability to self-regulate, maintain flexibility, and smoothly shift between states of relaxation and arousal. Since the brain also controls the Attention Regulation, Emotional Regulation and Affect Regulation, this ultimately allows the entire Central Nervous System to resume normal functioning.
BrainCore Neurofeedback is Safe, Drugless & Non-Invasive
Where is the research?
For the past 40 years neurofeedback has been studies in research labs at prominent universities throughout the world. The research supports the efficacy of neurofeedback and has been published in top tier scientific journals. You can read research articles here.

Neurofeedback is not suitable for everyone. Please call the office to inquire if BrainCore Neurofeedback would be a suitable treatment option for you.
"I have suffered with insomnia now over 10 years: I have tried every prescription, OTC med and various forms of cognitive therapy to no avail. 12 weeks into neurofeedback I am off sleep meds and getting a solid 7 hours a night sleep, which is not only helping me but also my husband (whom I would wake up all the time). I was skeptical and hesitant at first about this “boot camp for the brain” but with each passing day that is all gone. It is definitely worth the time and financial commitment; life changing! Another area where I am seeing progress being made is in my claustrophobia issues; I was recently hospitalized and was able to have tests done in very close quarters without “flipping” out and requiring anxiety meds.
Training is simple (you just watch movies or tv shows) and non-invasive; I am finally getting to see many movies I always wanted to.
The best part of this all is that the neurofeedback positive results remain for the long term as it actually fixes the underlying issues the in the brain."
Neurodevelopmental disorders impair the growth and development of the brain and nervous system. These disorders include Pervasive Developmental Disorders such as:
Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)
Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD)
Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)
Sensory Processing Disorder
as well as many other psychiatric disorders
Our society has seen a rise in autism spectrum disorders (Autism, ADD, ADHD, etc) in the last 10 years. The current research shows 1 in 6 children experience ASD or another sensory processing disorder (SPD). Based upon research in 2016, 1 in 36 kids have autism.
When a child enters our program showing signs of atypical development, Dr. Kekki investigates all possible areas of disruption to the nervous system.
Dr. Kekki looks at the child's neonatal development, birth history, their early health history as well as their current presentation. Research has shown that some endotoxins a child might be exposed to while in utero can directly lead to impaired motor function. Further exposure to environmental, vaccine-related or food borne toxins can also continue to compromise immune function. As the detoxification enzymes that children have work more slowly or may be lacking, they are more susceptible to these toxins. These toxins remain in the body, primarily housed in the brain and gut. Nearly 80% of the immune system is housed in the gut, and chronic inflammation in the gut due to these toxins can further impact inflammation levels throughout the body, including the brain.
So how do you know if your child is dealing with this kind of chronic inflammation? Common signs of this inflammation, which leads to nervous and immune system dysfunction are as follows: asthma, allergies, colic, chronic infections, difficulty sleeping, gastrointestinal issues, and picky eating habits.
Our Brainwaves in Motion program combines optimum nutrition, neurology, neurointegrative exercises, cranial-sacral/myofascial techniques, and chiropractic together in order for children or adults with Neurodevelopmental Disorders to achieve their maximum life potential. Our program is not intended to diagnose, treat, or cure neurodevelopmental disorders; including that of autism. the focus of our program is to naturally support the neuroimmune, neurogastric, neuromuscular, and neurobiomechanical systems to allow maximum innate human expression. Individuals presenting with neurodevelopmental disorders are known to have one or more of these systems operating at some level of dysfunction.
A similar philosophy can be applied to the treatment of those that have experienced traumatic brain injuries (stroke, head injury, etc.), due to the similarities of presentation. However, the underlying problem is completely different. Those that have Parkinson's Disease, Multiple Sclerosis, ASL, Crohn's Disease, and other neuro-degenerative diseases and auto-immune disorders have found relief and improved health with this focused program.
