Why does neurotherapy work?

The brain is amazingly adaptable, and capable of learning. It can also learn to improve its own performance when given the proper cues. Using the data obtained from the brain mapping (QEEG) as well his information from the client regarding symptoms, the neurotherapist is able to guide the individual’s brain into making adjustments that will improve efficiency and functioning. The neurotherapist challenges the client’s brain to obtain and maintain optimal performance. Gradually, the brain learns and begins to retain this new level of functioning.

Why Choose a BCIA-Certified Professional?

BCIA-certified professionals are internationally respected for many reasons.

1. BCIA is a non-profit institute that has been an effective advocate for our field. The American Psychological Association (APA) has recognized biofeedback as a proficiency in professional psychology because of the petition that BCIA filed with them. BCIA has been dedicated to a singular mission since 1981:

“BCIA certifies individuals who meet education and training standards in biofeedback and
progressively recertifies those who advance their knowledge through continuing education.”

2. BCIA’s biofeedback certification is the only program that is recognized by the three major international membership organizations: the Association for Applied Psychophysiology and Biofeedback (AAPB), the Biofeedback Foundation of Europe (BFE), and the International Society for Neurofeedback and Research (ISNR).

3. BCIA’s biofeedback certification is based on scientific evidence published in refereed journals. BCIA rejects narrow, unsubstantiated perspectives and the conflict of interest that exists when certification depends on a specific vendor’s equipment, databases, and protocols. BCIA certification is based on a reading list, Blueprint of Knowledge, and Professional Standards and Ethical Principles that were developed following an extensive job analysis and that are regularly updated by a task force of international authorities in biofeedback. BCIA continually gathers data to validate and revise its exams through the psychometric process to ensure the relevance, integrity, and value of our certification program.

4. BCIA’s biofeedback certification exam adheres to the highest psychometric standards. We painstakingly evaluate and revise our exam on a regular basis. Several independent experts, who include clinicians and the most experienced educators in our field, regularly review exam items to ensure that the they represent key blueprint concepts, are sourced to our suggested reading list, and are psychometrically sound. We regularly replace outdated exam questions with new ones that are contributed by biofeedback authorities and then validated by our certificants.

5. BCIA requires that our certificants adhere to one of the strongest ethical codes in our field. In addition, we require that our certificants complete 3 hours of ethics continuing education when they renew their certification. Our rigorous ethical standards are one of the many reasons that our international colleagues have chosen BCIA biofeedback certification.

6. BCIA’s Board of Directors consists of clinicians, educators, and researchers who have guided the development of biofeedback. Our Board includes leaders of the three major international membership organizations who have contributed decades of service to our field.

Do you accept insurance?

Neurotherapy Center of Nebraska is in-network with BCBS. All other insurances may receive out of network benefits. For your convenience, we accept checks, credit cards, or debit cards. Remember that insurance policies vary, and we will review your insurance to determine the appropriate course of action. Once treatment has started, we will file your claims. Feel free to contact us if you have more questions.

What is the difference between EEG Neurofeedback and Neurotherapy?

Neurofeedback (EEG biofeedback) is a process in which multiple sensors are placed on the scalp to monitor brain electrical activity and provide moment-to-moment collection of information about brain function. That data is fed back to the client for purposes of improving brain operational flexibility.

Neurotherapy Center of Nebraska utilizes neurofeedback along with the use of other modalities to modify brain patterns such as audio-visual stimulation, pulsed electromagnetic stimulation, Z-score training, LORETA neurofeedback training and psychotherapy. As computer technology increases in processing speed, we can see brain activity in real-time and the variables associated with optimal brain performance giving the client more opportunity to influence and change their brain activity, behavior and functioning.

How does neurotherapy and medications work?

Neurotherapy trains the brain to function at its optimal level without introducing anything that is unnatural into the body/brain. Healthy neurotransmitters may increase naturally, representing more efficient brain functioning. Neurotherapy is effective, noninvasive, and safe but it can cause temporary side effects such as feeling “wired” or “tired”. These side effects usually last for only a few minutes to a few hours post session and can be decreased by hydration and good nutrition. Once Neurotherapy sessions are completed, no further sessions are typically necessary. Neurofeedback is an evidence-based, medication free procedure in which our clients learn to retrain the mechanisms of their brain, reducing symptoms rather than masking the behavior.

My primary doctor is not familiar with Neurofeedback, can I share this site with her or him?

If your doctor is unfamiliar with this specific type of brain training or the advancements at Neurotherapy Center of Nebraska, please direct them to our website for links to evidence based research or have them contact us for additional information. At Neurotherapy Center of Nebraska, we take a comprehensive approach to treating the individual. This may include consultation with other professionals involved with the client.

Where can I learn more about Neurofedback?

Under each “condition” are listed Resources. Here is are two links with comprehensive neurofeedback information including bibliographies.

The ISNR Comprehensive Bibliography of Neurofeedback in Scholarly Articles: http://noviancounseling.wix.com/bibliography

Or download the PDF file directly: http://media.wix.com/ugd/fb579f_b7e0510f74704494876b121cb7501f59.pdf

What can I expect during a neurotherapy session?

Each client is different. The structure of each session will be generated based upon the unique needs of the client. Each session will last approximately one hour. Neurotherapeautic approaches and techniques will be utilized in that one hour session which may include neurofeedback or other therapeutic approaches.

How long does training normally take?

Neurotherapy is a learning process, and therefore results are seen gradually over time. For most conditions, progress may be seen within 6-10 sessions. Many clients have reported improvement in mood stability, improvement in their ability to relax as well as an improvement in their ability to manage life stressors fairly quickly. In the case of ADHD, the average number of training sessions is 40. Individuals with issues related to anxiety and/or depression may require as few as 20 sessions. Autism Spectrum Disorders and other Developmental Disorders may take 40-60 sessions or more to achieve optimal brain function for that client. Some symptoms related to mild head injuries may respond in less than 20 sessions (quality of sleep; fatigue; chronic pain), whereas others may require longer training before they show an initial response such as memory and executive decision functions. Neurotherapy Center of Nebraska views each client as an individual with their own unique needs. Therefore, the number of sessions will depend the unique needs of the client.

Uses and Disclosures of Protected Health Information for Treatment, Payment, or Operations –  

We may use or disclose your protected health information for treatment, payment and health care operations as described in this Section 1 without authorization from you. Your protected health information may be used and disclosed by your provider, our office staff, and others outside of our office that are involved in your care and treatment for the purpose of providing health care services to you. Your protected health information may also be used and disclosed to pay your health care bills and to support the operation of the provider’s practice. 

The following are the types and examples of uses and disclosures of your protected health care information that the provider’s office is permitted to make without your specific authorization. These descriptions and examples are not meant to be exhaustive, but to describe the types of uses and disclosures that may be made by our office: 

  1. Treatment: We will use and disclose your protected health information to provide, coordinate, or manage your health care and any related services. This includes the coordination or management of your health care with a third party, consultations with another provider, or your referral to another provider for your diagnosis and treatment. For example, a provider treating you may need to know if you have other health problems that might complicate your treatment and therefore may request your medical record from another health care provider that has provided treatment to you.
  2. Payment: Your protected health information may be used to obtain or provide payment for your healthcare services, including disclosures to other entities. This may include certain activities that your health insurance plan may undertake before it approves or pays for the services we recommend for you, such as making a determination of eligibility or coverage for insurance benefits, reviewing services provided to you, and undertaking utilization review activities. For example, we may need to give your insurance company information about therapy you received so your insurance will pay for the care.
  3. Operations: We may use or disclose your protected health information in order to support the business activities of your provider’s practice. These activities include, but are not limited to: quality assessment and improvement activities; reviewing the competence or qualifications of professionals; securing stop-loss or excess of loss insurance; obtaining legal services or conducting compliance programs or auditing functions; business planning and development; business management and general administrative activities, such as compliance with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act; resolution of internal grievances; due diligence in connection with the sale or transfer of assets of your provider’s  practice; creating de-identified health information; and conducting or arranging for other business activities. For example, we may use your health information to evaluate the performance of our providers and staff in providing care to you. In addition, we may disclose your protected health information to another provider, health plan, or health care clearinghouse for limited operational purposes of the recipient, as long as the other entity has, or has had, a relationship with you. Such disclosures will be limited to certain purposes, including: quality assessment and improvement activities, population-based activities relating to improving health or reducing health care costs, case management, conducting training programs, accreditation, certification, licensing, credentialing activities, and health care fraud and abuse detection and compliance program.


  1. Business Associates: We may share your protected health information with third party “business associates” that perform various activities (e.g., billing, transcription services, accounting services, legal services) for the practice. Whenever an arrangement between our office and a business associate involves the use or disclosure of your protected health information, we will have a written contract that contains terms that will protect the privacy of your protected health information.
  2. Treatment Alternatives and Health-Related Products and Services: We may use or disclose your protected health information, as necessary, to provide you with information about a product or service to encourage you to purchase or use the product or services for the following limited purposes: (1) to describe our participation in a provider network or health plan network, or to describe if, and the extent to which, a product or service (or payment for such product or service) is provided by our practice or included in a plan of benefits; (2) for your treatment; or (3) for your case management or care coordination, or to direct or recommend alternative treatments, therapies, providers, or settings of care.
  3. Family and Friends: We may provide your protected health information to individuals, such as family and friends, who are involved in your care or who help pay for your care. We may do this if you tell us we can do so, or if you know we are sharing your protected health information with these people and you do not object. There may also be circumstances when we can assume, based on our professional judgment, that you would not object. For example, we may assume you agree to our disclosure of your information to your spouse if your spouse comes with you into the room unless you tell us otherwise. Also, if you are not able to approve or object to a disclosure, we may make disclosures to a particular individual (such as a family member or friend), that we feel are in your best interest and that relate to that person’s involvement in your care or payment of your care. For example, we may make a professional judgment about your best interests that allow another person to pick up things, such as prescriptions and medical supplies.
