Neurofeedback: A New Approach
For over 40 years the accepted treatment for neurological symptoms has been the use of medications. However the disadvantages to medicating the brain are becoming more widely known. Side effects are common, and stopping the medication often results in a return of the symptoms. Patients are becoming increasingly frustrated with high cost medications that do not offer a long term resolution to their symptoms.
There are other ways to change the brain that are non-invasive and more natural. It’s no secret that the food you eat and exercise are all critical to brain function. But this is often not enough to alleviate more serious conditions.

What if you could eliminate or reduce chronic neurological conditions just by watching a movie or listening to music? It may sound too good to be true, but with the rise of computer technology, combined with decades of research in understanding brainwaves and how they affect your health, it is now possible to “fix” brainwaves and affect the way the body functions.
This new field, called Neurofeedback, is yielding positive results for many people with debilitating neurological symptoms. Neurofeedback has been shown to be incredibly powerful when done right with a trained professional. There are many case studies of people who have changed their lives for the better using neurofeedback. Research has shown people of all ages see dramatic improvement in ADHD, Depression, Anxiety, Brain Injury, Migraines, Seizures, Chronic Pain, Addiction and more. Results like these have become too common to ignore. Neurofeedback is not an instant process. It takes time for the brain to change and learn. Often many sessions are needed to see any results. But often, once clients are functioning better and have fewer symptoms, they can reduce or eliminate their reliance on medication. Neurofeedback has been proven to change the brain – to change timing in the brain. It’s published in scientific literature. It’s used by thousands of licensed health professionals around the world. It could be the most important new tool available for mental and neurological health.
What is Neurofeedback?
Neurofeedback (also called Neuro Therapy) is a non-invasive process where brain waves are monitored in real time by a computer, which can then use that information to produce changes in brainwave activity. The process of adjusting brainwave activity is known as operant conditioning, which is a method where rewards for positive behavior increase learning capabilities.
The best part of neurofeedback is that results are often permanent, allowing a person to reduce or even eliminate medications altogether. Where medications only manage the symptoms, the goal of neurofeedback is to address the underlying cause and restore normal brainwave functions.
Welcome to the Neurofeedback Center of Texas!
We are pleased to introduce neurofeedback to the Montgomery and Magnolia areas of Southern Texas. Also known as Brain Training, this groundbreaking approach incorporates state-of-the-art equipment with the expertise of our professionally trained staff. Neurofeedback does not specifically target any disorder. Instead Neurofeedback changes timing and activation patterns in the brain. The goal is to slowly guide your brain back into normal, healthy ranges and reconnect neural pathways that have been disconnected. The result is an improvement in brain regulation, which in turn impacts a variety of symptoms.
