Frequently Asked Questions

What is different about Neurotherapy at Advanced Therapy Center? Why should I choose this office when so many places offer Neurofeedback?

Coming into Advanced Therapy Center you will be seen by the doctor almost every appointment. You have the ability to benefit from Dr. Smith’s extensive background in medicine, psychotherapy, and neurofeedback. You will always have someone in the treatment room with you. We don’t use untrained staff to monitor sessions. There are ‘mills’ out there that do not hold these standards.

We also have a broad range of training options so that you, in particular, are treated in the best possible manner. There are no cookie-cutter treatments at Advanced Therapy Center, as there are many other places.

Can Neurofeedback harm someone?

In our experience at Advanced Therapy Center, no one has ever been left worse off. As with all healing techniques, there can be ups and downs in progress but we are not done until you are better.

Are there any negative side effects of Neurotherapy?

Neurotherapy is entirely non-invasive and does not cause pain. Occasionally someone may experience fatigue or a slight headache. These issues will resolve within a day. If a client has such a reaction, we will adjust their protocols so that it does not happen again. At times, a client may experience irritability caused by their increased ability to perceive their situations more clearly. At those times, here at Advanced Therapy Center we offer help figuring out how to cope with or change your irritants

Do the benefits of Neurotherapy last?

In the vast majority of cases our experience is that once the brain learns a more rewarding behavior, it maintains that behavior. Some people, however, will come back for a brief training to keep the edge sharp.

What can be done to make Neurotherapy as effective as possible?

The best things anyone can do for their mental, emotional, or physical health is to pay attention to diet, exercise, and sleep. Set up a regular sleep schedule and get eight hours. If you have habits that you know aren’t in your best interests, we can help you change that behavior.
