Neurofeedback Focus Unit
By Gillian Brod, Neurofeedback Program Manager.
As you may have seen in last month’s newsletter, we have launched our Neurofeedback Program! This comprehensive program is a marriage of neurofeedback and lifestyle coaching, and designed to support you in all areas of your life to help you feel your very best. If you are interested in learning more about our program, I encourage you to take a look at our last article on neurofeedback, and contact us for more information.

Our neurofeedback technology has an in-office system as well as a home device that can be used more conveniently for your brain training. The Focus Unit is our at-home neurofeedback device that you can use in the comfort of your own home, and on a schedule that works for you.
We start with a brain map to get a baseline reading of your brain’s activity and activation patterns. From this map we can understand which areas of the brain are not functioning optimally and often cause troublesome symptoms and behaviors, such as decreased memory, attention deficit, lack of motivation, anxiety, depression, etc. Our team of neurofeedback specialists reviews your brain map to understand where your symptoms are coming from based on which frequency bands (or brain waves - delta, theta, alpha, and beta) are functioning at an improper power level. The map will provide us with the most appropriate training protocol based on your individual brain activity.
What makes our program so different is our attention to your individual experience of life, and supporting you with a whole health mindset. When it comes to our health, we believe that healthy habits in sleep, diet, mindset, and lifestyle are extremely important. We have found that diligence in these areas has helped people have greater success, faster results with their brain training, and has restored a greater quality of life in our neurofeedback clients. When you commit to our program, you will have regular meetings with a health coach to ensure that you have all the support needed to make the most of your training.
The Focus Unit is an amazing technological innovation, and can be used by the whole family for a variety of different uses. Each map recommends a protocol based on your brain wave measurements taken during the mapping. These specific protocols are numbered 1-23. In addition to this specialized number selection, there are several bonus protocols that can also be used to balance the brain and help with insomnia, attention, stress reduction, alertness, inflammation and much more. These protocols are designed to be used in conjunction with your numbered protocol to optimize your results. We will work together to create a training plan to make your experience easy and effective!
The Focus Unit is also a nice option if you want to start training your brain, but the winter weather prohibits travel, or you live at a good distance from our office. IM of CNY will also soon be offering rental Focus Units, which could be utilized for this type of a situation, or if you were going on vacation and did not want to take a break in your training. There are many options that can discussed with our team!
If you are interested in starting your neurofeedback journey, or would like to speak to someone for more information, please call our office at (315) 741-5774. Please note you do not have to be a patient at IM of CNY to participate in our Neurofeedback program. We look forward to working with you to optimize your brain health!
