Micro Current Neurofeedback: What it is and Why It Works
At GUTS OC, we have been using micro current neurofeedback (MCN) to help our patients who are struggling with ADHD, depression, anxiety, PTSD, addiction and more. This non-invasive, painless treatment produces long term results faster and more efficiently. Here are some FAQ about micro current neurofeedback, what it is, what it treats, why it works and why you should consider it as a treatment option:
What is micro current neurofeedback used for?
We use MCN to treat anxiety, depression, ADHD, PTSD and addiction. MCN is used to alleviate symptoms quicker than using talk therapy alone.
How does micro current neurofeedback work?
MCN uses a pulse to help the brain reset and reorganize itself. It involves applying small sensors to the head and neck (frequencies are weaker than that of a cell phone). A signal is sent to the most dominant brain wave. In doing this, the brain releases fixed, frozen patterns; therefore, “rebooting” the brain. This greatly benefits the nervous system by allowing it to regulate itself. This technique is very helpful to those who often feel they are not in control of their emotions, responses and reactions (PTSD, panic attacks, depression, anxiety, etc.).
Who do you recommend micro current neurofeedback to?
We recommend MCN to anyone with a diagnosis of ADHD, depression, anxiety and/or addiction. In our 25 years of practice, MCN provides not only the fastest, but also the most effective, treatment for long term results. With talk therapy alone, it may take six months to make significant progress in working through anxiety or depression; however, in the “worst” scenario, significant results and improvement occur after five sessions of MCN. Most of our patients report feeling and seeing results after just one session of MCN.
Should I consider micro current neurofeedback for myself?
MCN can be beneficial to all of our patients. During our assessment period, we typically use MCN to determine what areas it may be helpful in processing deeper issues more quickly and efficiently.
Although we recommend MCN being used to treat ADHD, anxiety, depression and addiction, we have also used it in combination with marriage counseling and individual counseling and have seen great results.
