It depends on your needs and wishes. Every case is unique. We can estimate once there is a realistic picture of what is going on. Naturally a complicated chronic case of many years duration with extensive pathology requires much more than a more recent, less complicated case. The initial preliminary consultation (Contact Us) is without charge. Although formulating a strategy without tests costs less in the short term, it is unsatisfactory and far more expensive in the long run. If you follow the prescribed protocol then the first session is $175, the QEEG collection and interpretation is $550-$1200 and subsequent sessions run between $175 and $65 depending on how often you come.
It will be necessary, (and more beneficial) to come more often in the beginning. It is always our goal to get you on your way to better health and quality of life as soon as is possible. Often there are things that can be done at home so that it is not necessary to come in to the office as much. While we can sometimes begin to get results right away, intrinsic memory is stored by long term potentiation. So, more is more! A study I saw recently came up with the number of 26 sessions of neurofeedback as a working average, this will of course vary by individual.
Neurotherapies have been used for decades with very few side effects. Unfavorable effects experienced from neurofeedback are generally uncommon. When they do occur they are only symptoms already familiar to you, meaning they are never something you haven’t experienced before, and they are transient (short–lived).
It most certainly does. Having a sound strategy to take care of your brain and prevent accelerated neurodegeneration is critical for maintaining healthy function in every system, not to mention the ability to enjoy life.
Regrettably, the functional medicine model that applies science and technology to examine and treat the underlying causes of health problems and support normal function does not correspond to the insurance paradigm constrained by diagnostic labels and a symptomatic standard of care.
