Brain & Nervous System Treatments

SF (InfraSlow Fluctuation) Neurofeedback — This method differs from most other approaches to neurofeedback in two ways: 1) it addresses very slow rhythms deep within the brain, rather than the faster rhythms of the neocortex; these rhythms are associated with glial cells and neurovisceral regulation.  2) it is passive rather than active: sounds are played to indicate your relationship to your “optimal frequency” (which we first identify) and you simply watch a movie.  These slow rhythms appear to be “carrier frequencies” supporting higher frequency brain signals.

Low-Level (cold) Laser Therapy — Also known as photobiomodulation delivers light to body or brain tissues through the skin.  It supports cellular function, particularly mitochondrial function and repair processes.  Applications include  through light therapy.  Applications include Trans-cranial LLLT (that is, light sources placed on the skull, which penetrate into the brain) which is being used to help the brain repair itself from injury, and increase resources for brain activity, with animal studies showing that it can reduce plaque in Alzheimer’s disease.  It is also used in Rehab for aches, pains, and injuries.

Anat Baniel Method® / NeuroMovement® — A method that grew out of the work of Moshe Feldenkrais PhD, it uses skilled, subtle sensitive movement (the primordial language of the brain) to give the brain new options, which generalize to higher brain functions and sense of self in the world.  It has applications ranging from severe special needs and brain injury or stroke to autism and neurobehavioral conditions to vitality, anti-aging and high performance self-improvement through upgrading brain organization.  through using nuanced gentle, aware movement to upgrade brain organization.

Multilayered brain treatments — Some research shows that layering two or more treatments may synergize and increase impact. For example, supporting brain tissue (e.g., with low-level laser therapy, LLLT) before other kinds of brain training may increase the learning curve from the brain training (e.g., neurofeedback, OT or PT, ABM-NM, brain-training games).
