Enhance Your Brain Function with Neurotherapy in West Bloomfield, MI
With the chaos of modern life, it can be hard to handle all of our daily pressures alone.

How Our Neurotherapy Treatments Work
Neuromodulation is a type of neurofeedback that equips clients to improve their brain function and control emotional overreaction. Using this technique, clients can therapeutically address problems such as ADHD, depression and anxiety, autism spectrum disorder (ASD), and traumatic brain injury (TBI).
Combined with psychotherapy, neurofeedback provides a drug-free treatment option to promote self-awareness for self-development. We measure electrical activity in your brain and use those diagnostics to develop a treatment plan that helps your brain shift out of dysfunctional patterns into more adaptive ones. These tools help you take more control over your life and the way you interact with the world, leading to better focus, stronger relationships, and reduced stress. Are you ready to change your life?
Lifestyle Changes to Support Brain Function
Dr. Amen (www.amenclinics.com) has done over 155,000 functional brain scans and identified 7 different types of ADD, and 7 different types of anxiety and depression. Each type has its own specific treatment protocol.
We use questionnaires developed at the Amen Clinic to identify your brain type. Knowing your own brain type and taking the specific supplements to support it while making lifestyle changes at the beginning of treatment can efficiently enhance the process of change. We have an ongoing professional relationship with Dr. Amen and can refer you for a SPECT scan at the Amen Clinic if this is needed.
Additionally, we have a working relationship with physicians in our area who can write prescriptions if this is indicated by the scan results. Supplements from the Amen Clinic are recommended in consultation with your physician.
There are a number of Neurotherapy treatment techniques available at CIP:
Neurofield is a suite of state-of-the-art neuromodulation (neurostimulation) technique. A variety of treatments including Pulsed Electromagnetic Frequencies (PEMF), Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation (tDCS), Transcranial Alternating Current Stimulation (tACS), Transcranial Random Noise Stimulation (tRNS), Transcranial Pink Noise Stimulation (tPNS), and Transcranial Brown Noise Stimulation (tBNS). A course of neuromodulation treatment is typically between 20 and 40 sessions.
Traditional Neurofeedback (i.e. amplitude training and LORETA Neurofeedback) are also done at CIP, often as part of the last stage of treatment.
Low Energy Neurofeedback System (LENS) is typically done once per week. It is a separate course from Neurofield and cannot be done at the same time. A clinical decision about which treatment to use will be based on a QEEG assessment. The length of a course of LENS treatment is usually between 20 and 30 sessions. The client often begins to see a change in the symptom picture in the first six sessions. If change is not apparent in six sessions, then some factor is interfering and must be addressed (e.g. chronic sleep deprivation, toxic exposure, bacterial or viral infection, substance use, etc).
LENS was developed by a pioneer in the field of neurofeedback, Len Ochs, Ph.D. (www.ochslabs.com). LENS has been helpful in getting some people unstuck from dysfunctional symptom patterns.
LENS Therapy can usually be done in 15 minutes and does not require the voluntary or purposeful intention of the individual to work. This makes it especially useful in the healing regimen of people resistant to treatment. The Healing Power of Neurofeedback: The Revolutionary LENS Technique for Restoring Optimal Brain Function by Stephen Larsen, Ph.D. 2006 is a seminal reference on this topic.
