While modern science and medicine have improved psychotherapy and pharmaceutical treatments, which are both useful to some extent, some people don’t respond well to these forms of treatments. Another group of patients is afraid of dealing with the associated consequences. Thankfully, modern science has gifted the world with the third method of therapy – a technique based on the power of the brain to deal with a broad range of mental and behavioral issues. Neurofeedback utilizes the ability of the brain to learn and enhance according to informational cues of the patient’s environment. Since it has no side effects, it has attracted plenty of applications.
Neurocore, a brain performance center has successfully used Neurofeedback to treat conditions such as depression migraines, stress, anxiety, autism spectrum disorder, athletes, memory boot camp, teen ADHD, adult attention deficit hyperactivity disorder and Child ADHD. Neurocore adopts a comprehensive approach to Neurofeedback which entails biofeedback. By varying their heart rates, patients learn to take slower and deeper breathes capable of maximizing the functioning of their hearts and in turn improve circulation.
At Neurocore, the brain training therapy for the treatment of depression usually begins with an exhaustive assessment using qEEG brainwave mapping technology, ASEBA (Achenbach System of Empirically Based Assessment and other diagnostic measures. The objective is to come up with a versatile landscape of the patient’s depression symptoms. 84 percent of the 292 clients who finished the facilities’ 30-session program, reported a significant reduction of their depression symptoms, while 51 percent no longer fulfilled the symptomatic depression threshold.
Neurocore operates under the leadership of Rick Kuiper, the President, and Mark Murrison, who serves as the chief executive officer. The brain performance center specializes in the provision of data-driven, brain-centered assessments, as well as training programs aimed at helping children and adults to manage stress and improve sleep and concentration levels. While it has been in existence for close to 15 years, Neurocore enjoys national authority in applied neuroscience and has nine centers spread across Florida and Michigan.
Athletes and franchises have started including Neurofeedback in their training regimens. As a result, Neurocore has attracted related partnerships with companies such as The Portland Trail Blazers, who have even incorporated a ‘brain room’ within their training facilities. At any given time, the privately held company usually has 51-200 employees. To ensure that clients can benefit from their services from the comfort of their homes, Neurocore is now offering at-home programs. This program is for individuals struggling with sleep problems, lack of focus, stress as well as memory issues.
