How many neurofeedback sessions are in a treatment?
We recommend doing neurofeedback intending to do 20-30 sessions. Often clients will start seeing positive changes within 10 sessions but it usually takes 20-30 for these the brain to remember these changes so that they are lasting.

If neurofeedback works why have I not heard of it?
Neurofeedback became popularized in the 1960's and 1970's after the U.S. Air Force sponsored research showing that even cats can use neurofeedback to reduce seizures. It has since then become more widely applied to humans to address symptoms of epilepsy, ADHD, and a range of other conditions. Though the mechanisms by which it works are still being uncovered through new research, many can attest to the impacts it has had in reducing a range of symptoms. It has not had the same financial backing as many pharmaceuticals however, it has gained a strong following from those who have tried it.
