What we do
This advanced brain training technology, developed in part by, NASA-level engineers works by triggering what’s called the orienting response, which is the brain’s ability to sense change in the environment and take in new information about what is different. Neurofeedback uses real-time displays of brain activity to teach the brain to self-regulate. The brain then uses that data to adjust itself, in the same way that you might be inspired to fix an-out-of place lock of hair while looking in the mirror. As the brain changes, the feedback changes. Think of neurofeedback as a kind of learning for the brain. The promise of neurofeedback is to shift our brain waves back to health without the use of drugs. Clients suffering from attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder, anxiety, anger, depression, etc., can simply sit in Mind Gym's comfortable chair for half-hour sessions and get a "mind fit" tune-up.
It makes sense that neurofeedback is safe when we remember that the process is simply one of learning or training. When you are doing neurofeedback, the therapist is seeing your brain activity and getting hints when it is headed in the direction of improved functioning.
No side effects.
No significant or negative side effects
Over the long term, it is cost effective.
Promotes internal control
Medication promotes a sense of external control.
Does not cut the skin or enter the body
Neurotherapy is a contemporary mental health option for people suffering from ADHD/ADD, depression, learning disabilities, attachment disorders, addictions, and insomnia to name a few. Neurotherapy, also called neurofeedback, EEG biofeedback, or brainwave training displays real-time EEG activity through sensors placed on the head. Once initial information is gathered, neurofeedback can be used to teach the brain to operate more effectively by providing auditory and visual feedback that rewards the brain. This process creates training for brain wave patterns and improves challenging roadblocks in the counseling process. Neurofeedback is a suitable option for individuals who do not respond well to medications or who are looking for a natural alternative to pharmaceuticals.
Seeking a Better Option
Do not respond well to traditional approaches.
Benefit from psychotherapy and neurofeedback.
Seeking Self Regulation
Want to self regulate brain functions.
Seeking a Natural Option
Are looking for a natural alternative to medication.
Why use Neurofeedback for your own wellness?
Clients can see the alternatives to medications and the side effects along with the long terms consequences they have on children. Clients are looking for healthy alternatives.
It makes sense to retrain the brain. Practitioners’ can assist clients only so far in meditation, yoga, and deep breathing. Neurofeedback helps the individual learn to regulate their brain and increase or decrease certain brain activity.
Neurophysiology and science is compelling. When someone changes his/her EEG one is by definition changing activation and timing patterns.
These affect different pathways and feedback loops into the brain. When understood these mechanisms, neurotherapy, becomes understandable as an effective adjunct to counseling or psychotherapy.
Poor Medication Results
Clients need more help than medications and psychotherapy.
Symptoms improve more rapidly than normal psychotherapy.
Well Documented Results
Proven life-changing results in children & adults.
Considered well-researched and evidence-based.
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.
90% of children who die
by suicide have a mental health condition
70% of youth in juvenile justice systems have at least one mental health condition
1 in 5 adults or 43.8 million in the U.S. experiences mental illness in a given year
Adults in the U.S. living with serious mental illness die on average 25 years earlier than others
We have watches that count each step we take, phone applications that tally each calorie swallowed and burned, "smartshirts" that measure our heart rate and respiration. We are living in an era of personal data tracking — yet many experts say we're missing a huge opportunity to use our body's data to change our physiological activity for the better.
Researchers are beginning to develop new forms of neurofeedback, which could help people learn to alter patterns of brain activity associated with any number of maladaptive cognitions and behaviors. Early studies indicate that feedback with real-time functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) could help in treating clinical disorders including depression, schizophrenia, addiction and chronic pain.
The goal of mindfulness training is to help the client become aware of and accepting of, his or her full experience as it occurs moment by moment. Awareness and acceptance leads to a release of stress, sadness, anger, and anxiety. The goals of mindfulness training are to help reduce and eventually eliminate harmful neurocognitive states and processes that arise from inefficient neurological and electrical patterns in the brain such as destructive rumination, worry, self-blame, judgment, negativity, pain and more. A client who learns the skills of mindfulness tends to achieve better emotional, mental, relational, and physiological regulation over time. This skill can offer a constant source of comfort, stress-reduction, insight and illumination.

Therapist, Shelli Myles answers the frequent client questions. From brain mapping to her introduction to neurofeedback, her dedication and determination to helping clients overcome their struggles is evident. Lead by more six years of experience, Shelli Myles is the voice you can trust.
My adopted daughter who is highly ADHD and has difficulty focusing in school has been on medication for over 6 years. She completed neurofeedback and has been taken completely off her medication for the past 6 months and is doing great in school. She has not had any behavioral issues reported by her teacher since her treatments. I was not sure what I thought about neurofeedback but am glad we tried this form of therapy and got her off medication for her own health.
As we near our yearly celebration of things for which we are thankful, I am mindful of your organization and the many instances of dramatic healing that are occuring through neurofeedback around the world - due in large part to your efforts. Blessings to you and that which you seek to accomplish.

We're definitely doing something right! Our 6-year old son has become very polite, courteous and agreeable. He is concerned about other's feelings and whether he is being good. He is showing more initiative to do things that he has been asked to do. He has drawn more pictures in the last three weeks than in three years.
