BrainCore Moves to New Facility

BrainCore Moves to New Facility

Husband-and-wife team, Dr. Ron and Hayley Nathanson, move BrainCore, their neuro-feedback practice to a new facility in Spring Valley.

The Nathansons’ BrainCore practice began in 2012, because they “believe in natural approaches to dealing with health issues,” says Dr. Nathanson. Neurofeedback is an effective, noninvasive, and non-pharmaceutical solution to many brain-related disorders, and is considered safe by the Food and Drug Administration.

Neuro-feedback is a drug-free approach to treating many brain-related conditions, such as attention deficit, hyperactivity, anxiety, insomnia, depression, post-traumatic stress, and chronic migraine headaches. The treatment uses EEG Biofeedback to track and visually display the patient’s brainwave patterns. That information is visually displayed to the patient, who controls the screen through their brainwaves, thereby transforming deregulated patters into a more normal, organized pattern. Through neuro-feedback treatment, the brain is reconditioned and retrained to respond to stimuli, thereby alleviating painful or sometimes-debilitating symptoms.

Children with focus or concentration issues with schoolwork, those experiencing school-related anxiety or severe stress in testing situations may also benefit from BrainCore neuro-feedback treatment. BrainCore requires a 20-session minimum, at 2 sessions per week.  According to Hayley Nathanson, patients usually see results within the first 7 to 8 sessions, though results vary.
