VERY IMPORTANT – you must do a MNRI assessment (and MNRI therapy to correct deficits) before starting Neurofeedback. We discovered the hard way that Neurofeedback will cement in any improper reflex patterns. I do think Neurofeedback is very valuble, especially Z-score training, but:
Again – Do not start neurofeedback until all MNRI deficits are corrected!
We have worked with 2 Neurofeedback docs:
Mark Smith in NYC. www.neurofeedbackservicesny.com Under his care we bought a home system from BrainMaster, and Mark gave us a settings file for home training. Mark uses Infra-Slow Fluctuation (ISF) Training.
We later opted for 4-channel Z-score training, which aims to get all parts of the brain connecting/communicating. Our mentor: Penijean Gracefire at StressTherapy Solutions.
