frequently asked questions
How does it work?
Your brain specialist then designs a neurofeedback training protocol specifically tailored to you. Delivered remotely, our neurofeedback training system allows you to improve your mental performance from anywhere on any schedule. Most of our clients choose a quiet, relaxing place in their home.
Neurofeedback sessions consist of watching YouTube and/or listening to sounds with special sensors placed on the head. Your brain is rewarded (i.e. brightness of the screen) when it is regulating itself in a normal pattern. Training typically lasts 8 weeks and regular check-ins will help you stay on track.
Do you accept insurance?
• accept payments from Health Savings Accounts and Flexible Spending Accounts;
• accept major credit cards
in addition, some of our clients have used carecredit.com, which provides 0 percent financing for 8 to 14 months for medical and health-related procedures not covered by insurance
