Twelve-year-old Josie* sits at the desk in her bedroom studying her new vocabulary words for a spelling test the next morning. After a half hour she decides she’s “got it” and moves on to the rest of her homework. The next day in class she grins from ear-to-ear when she sees that she’s earned a “B” on her test.
There were times when Dr. Katie M.* wondered how she was going to make it to the end of her work day. A 71-year-old internist with a busy practice in a major Northeast city, she started out her day exhausted, anxious, panicked, and depressed. And it only got worse.
Today, she says she’s a “different person,” thanks in large part to the services she received at the Center for Brain Training.
My 8-year-old daughter had experienced a high degree of anxiety that did not allow her to interact with other children very well. She could not let anybody else control the situation or let somebody else be the leader in a game. She was very rigid in all social situations. After 20 neurofeedback sessions, she is learning to let go of the control of a situation.
Before my six-year-old son began (EEG) biofeedback I would describe him as a little boy encased within an opaque bubble. He would ride in a car for 21 hours and never ask if we were there yet, or ask to get out of the car for any other reason unless he was hungry or had to use the restroom.
John, age 9, was painfully shy. He was very quick to get upset and cry. He also had difficulty with attention and struggled with reading and writing. He was not doing well in school. His mom was very concerned.
The Center for Brain Training recorded an EEG brain map, which identified two key brain patterns: Excessive theta waves which correlate to an inattention problem and a lack of connectivity between the left central and parietal areas of the brain.
Elizabeth, age 35, mother of an active two year old, had had problems with anxiety since the age of 17. She came to the Center for Brain Training suffering from anxiety and up to five panic attacks a day. She said they were “taking over” her life. She was also suffering from mild depression and was on an antidepressant.
There are two days in Dennis Riordon’s memory that changed his world forever. The first occurred in 2008 when the man he had been evaporated on an operating table during a routine procedure. The second was in January of 2017 when he made his way to the Center for Brain Training and regained his dignity and his life.
(as told by his father)
When “Bradley” was an infant he suffered brain damage after going into a diabetic coma in his crib. By the time we discovered him, he had turned blue and was barely breathing.
As he grew up, it was obvious early on that he wasn’t a normal child.
Sixteen-year-old Greg had been anxious most of his life, but he got worse by the time he entered high school. Even after transferring from a large public school to a small private one, Greg made excuses not to go, saying he was too anxious and was having panic attacks. He begged his mother Lori to home-school him.
