Neurofeedback

Comprehensive Services is proud to be the first center for Neurofeedback, or EEG Biofeedback, in Central Ohio. We have over 20 years of experience in what is often referred to as Brain Training, Brain Balancing, or Brain Exercise. Richard Davis, Ph.D., EEG-BCN, President and Owner of Comprehensive Services, Shauna Hoover, PC-CR, CDCA, CHt ,and Laurie Berger, Ph.D., work together as a team, utilizing state-of-the-art Neurofeedback equipment and software programs to help our clients to achieve the best possible results in the shortest amount of time.

We provide a complete range of biofeedback and neurofeedback approaches, and we are able to train on multiple sites (up to 24) at the same time. We do training at the cortex, or surface of the brain, or utilize sLoreta to train interior hubs and networks of brain activity, depending on each client's individual needs, determined through scientific and evidence based evaluation. A medical doctor is available for consultation and quality assurance review.

Comprehensive Services, Inc. has a complete selection of the most recent hardware and software. Our practitioners are experienced and trained with activation training, Alpha Theta Training, amplitude training, Heart Rate Variability Training, conventional neurofeedback, brain performance training, Open Focus with Synchrony Training, qEEG, sLoreta Neurofeedback, Slow Cortical Potential and Infra-slow, SMR training, Squash techniques, and Zscore Neurofeedback. We are also well acquainted with protocols specific to attention, focus, concentration, anxiety, depression, obsessive & compulsive symptoms, and seizure symptoms.

We use Brain Avatar, Brain Master, EEGinfo or the Othmer Approach, EmWave, LENS, Micro Tesla, Roshi, and Thought Technology.

Neurofeedback has been found to achieve lasting and successful intervention in modifying and helping to resolve symptoms associated with:

seizure disorders

attention, concentration, and memory problems

traumatic brain injury

chronic pain

autistic-spectrum disorders

depression

anxiety

headache/migraine

addictions

sleep problems

Neurofeedback is a viable, non-invasive option for children and adults with attention deficit disorder or attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. It has also been able to help clients improve learning disabilities, reading and math abilities, and to achieve other educational and academic goals.

Neurofeedback has also has been used to help maximize the performance of athletes, artists and executives, including the Italian Soccer Team, that won the World Cup in 2008, musicians in the London Royal Orchestra, and several U.S. Olympic Gold Medal winners.

How It Works:

Through research, neurofeedback specialists have found that the brain can be under-aroused or over-aroused, or alternate between the two states. Certain symptoms occur as a result, such as focus issues, anxiety, reoccurring headaches, depression, and others. Neurofeedback helps eliminate these symptoms by training the brain to understand what different brainwave states feel like and how to return to those states. It is a safe, non-invasive and drug-free treatment that has a high rate of success without side effects.

Before beginning neurofeedback training, a brain map, or QEEG, is administered to determine areas of over or under arousal, and identify, with significant detail, the location and nature of dysregulated EEG, leading to a training or treatment plan. The functioning of the brain is objectively assessed in comparison with normative data for the patient's age, family history, clinical history, and presenting symptoms.

Training can take from six to 40 sessions, and occasionally more, depending on one's QEEG results and/or symptoms. Sessions can be scheduled as often as once or twice a day or as infrequently as once a week.

Neurofeedback is an exciting, relatively new option that has helped many people overcome their negative symptoms, perform at their best, and live a more productive life.
