Neurotherapy trains individuals to self-regulate, gain awareness, increase control over their brain/nervous system, and improve physiological flexibility. Our programs are suited for children and adults.
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is the most effective approach for a variety of psychological problems. The therapy relationship is collaborative and goal-oriented, and the focus is on thoughts, beliefs, assumptions and behaviors. In CBT, the goal is for a person to develop more realistic and rational perspectives, and make healthier behavioral choices, as well as to feel relief from negative emotional states.
The biomat is a non-invasive therapeutic device that uses a combination of far infrared light, negative ions, and amethyst crystals to energize cells, relieve stress, reduce toxins, and balance energy in the body. The Biomat is scientifically validated and FDA approved. The Biomat technology is based on Nobel Prize winning research of Erwin Neher and Bert Sakmann, as well as NASA pioneered research.
Biofeedback is a process that enables an individual to learn how to change physiological activity for the purposes of improving health and performance. Precise instruments measure physiological activity such as brainwaves, heart function, breathing, muscle activity, and skin temperature. These instruments rapidly and accurately “feed back” information to the user. The presentation of this information — often in conjunction with changes in thinking, emotions, and behavior — supports desired physiological changes. Over time, these changes can endure without continued use of an instrument.
Brain Mapping or Quantitative Electroencephalography (QEEG) is a procedure that records and processes EEG activity of the human brain from 19 or more electrodes that rest on the scalp surface. The digital recorded EEG data is statistically analyzed and compared with normative referenced database values. The processed EEG is converted into color maps of brain functioning called a “Brain Mapping”. QEEG is part of the comprehensive integrated assessment provided upon initiation of services at Neurotherapy Center of Nebraska.
Neurocounseling is a new approach to the counseling process that integrates knowledge of the brain and related physiology into clinical practice. Integrating brain function into mental health treatment offers clients a more holistic treatment approach. A neurocounselor uses the understanding of the interplay between the brain, its structures and its functions to gain a richer understanding of the client and his or her presenting concerns. A neurocounselor is able to incorporate all of this into the therapy sessions which helps clients view themselves through a different lens. It helps clients understand that they are more than their thoughts, behaviors, and symptoms. Clients tend to like this approach as it helps to destigmatize mental health and offers relief in knowing that physiology plays a role in the behaviors and emotions.
Neurotherapy Center of Nebraska is one of the first in the Midwest to offer 3-Dimensional LORETA Z-Score Neurofeedback. LORETA neurofeedback trains Brodmann areas in the brain including, hubs, modules, and networks. The neurofeedback sessions are based on client symptoms and LORETA Z-Scores measured during a QEEG (Brain Mapping). Training parameters are determined by linking client symptoms to functional areas of dysregulation in the brain.
NeuroField is an ultra-low intensity, pulsed electromagnetic field (pEMF) unit that works to replenish energy and reduce stress in the brain and body. NeuroField is a non-invansive biofeedback technique that was invented by Nicholas Dogris, Ph.D and Brad Wiitala, E.E. The NeuroField technology incorporates very low intensity, pulsed electromagnetic field (pEMF) stimulation, heart rate variability (HRV) and electroencephalography (EEG) all in one biofeedback system.
