Neurofeedback: a Natural Way to Help with Your Child's Anxiety or ADHD

Kids heads togetherAnxiety, ADHD and other focus issues are more common than ever, making it hard for children to function at their highest level, sit still through their classes or even interact with their peers. Medications typically just mask the symptoms, while creating other problems with unwanted side effects.

At Parker Integrative Health, we offer a safe, non-invasive, drug-free and totally natural approach to helping restore optimal brain function in kids. It’s called neurofeedback, and, even though it’s been around for over 60 years, there’s a good chance you haven’t heard of it.

What Is Neurofeedback?

Neurofeedback is a way to tell the brain it’s creating the wrong patterns, and retrain it to perform the correct patterns. Different brainwave patterns reflect different conditions: there are anxiety patterns, attention patterns and so forth.

The process uses electrodes connected to a computer. During a session, the electrodes are placed on your child’s head, and all they have to do is sit there and watch a movie on the computer! When their brain creates the correct patterns, the movie will play—but when their brain waves are not optimal, the movie dims, depending upon how far off your brain is from producing the new pattern.

The brain learns through this retraining to stay with the correct patterns that keep the movie playing.

Our Approach

We begin with a thorough intake process, including full brain mapping, primitive reflex assessments, as well as cognitive, timing and eye tracking assessments. Anxiety, focus and memory problems can stem from various issues in the brain, and our intake allows us to tailor care specifically to your child’s needs.

Every 20 visits, we re-do all the testing to monitor progress, and 95% of the time, we see measurable improvement. Because kids’ brains aren’t bogged down with decades of stress and all the things we as adults have going on, they usually respond quickly to neurofeedback and can get back to being kids.
