Deep Brain Neurofeedback
When it comes to solving complex symptoms or medical conditions, good tools make all the difference.
Deep brain (LoRETA) Neurofeedback is the most flexible and precise brain training tool available. Better imaging means the training is more specific to your goals, and fewer sessions are required to see results.
That is why the vast majority of experienced clinicians (10 years plus) use this method Neurofeedback in their clinics, and why we use it in ours.
Sessions are scheduled one-to-one with a professional Neurofeedback therapist, either in the Idaho Falls or Twin Falls location.
What is Deep Brain Neurofeedback?
We call this method 'Deep Brain' Neurofeedback for short; it's full name is QEEG guided LoRETA Z-score NFB. The components of the technique are in the name.
A QEEG is a picture of your brain activity; our 'eyes' to see your inner state.
We use the QEEG to tailor your Neurofeedback program to your brain activity, your symptoms, and your goals. It adds accuracy to a process that would otherwise be done by eye.
During your sessions, subsequent QEEGs allow us to adjust your training as you change. After your sessions, a simple comparison allows you to see your progress too.

LoRETA (Low Resolution Electromagnetic Tomography)
Using a full 19 sensor array, LoRETA gives a real-time three dimensional image of your brain activity.
With LoRETA imaging. we are now able to train deep brain areas; entire networks (brain highways), coherence (connectivity), processing speed (phase) and more; all crucial factors in optimum brain functioning.
In practice, this means that we can train all the brain areas involved in your symptoms as a unit; the better imaging and coverage means better efficiency, which in turn means less sessions.
If you want to see if your hormones are out of balance, you need a baseline (z-score) to know if your levels are higher or lower than average. Similarly, Neurofeedback practitioners use baselines to see what areas of your brain to train, and how much training is needed.
But is there an 'average' brain to compare against? No two brains are quite the same, however a 'comfortable state' looks almost identical in all of us. This content, balanced state is the position (z-score) that we train towards.
QEEG guided LoRETA Z-score Neurofeedback
With all the components together...
By identifying the specific brain activities that relate to your symptoms (QEEG), we help train that activity towards a more comfortable and efficient state (Z-score) using 19 sensors and 3D (LoRETA) Neurofeedback.
Loreta Z-Score Neurofeedback is FDA approved, and meets the highest criteria for evidence-based Neurofeedback practice. It has been cross-validated by both PET and MRi (study), is used by Universities, Medical Centers, the US military, Research Institutes (list...), and in over 650 Neurofeedback studies.
