Neurocore is a company that operates six brain performance centers. New customers take an initial assessment which determines a few things, including how their brain is performing. The initial assessment includes a heart rate variability test, an electroencephalogram, an integrated visual and auditory continuous performance test, a behavioral checklist, and a discussion about the results. If the results show a treatment program should be put in place the customer will come back to the Neurocore therapy clinic for 30 45-minute long visits.

They offer two services at Neurocore which are Biofeedback Training and Neurofeedback Training. Biofeedback training uses heart rate variability feedback. People who take this training learn how to control their breathing, making it deep and slower. This helps heart and brain function as there is more oxygen in the blood. The health benefits include stress reduction, reductions in high blood pressure, improved mood, and increased energy levels.

Neurofeedback Training uses EEG. All you do is watch a movie while you wear a hat with EEG sensors in it. When your brain is in the therapeutic range the movie plays, when your brain spikes out of this range the movie pauses. The benefits of this training include better sleep quality, better focus and attention, improved mood levels, and faster recovery both physically and mentally.
Both Biofeedback Training and Neurofeedback Training are ways to treat a variety of mental issues. This includes post-traumatic stress disorder, ADHD, depression, Asperger’s syndrome, anxiety, sleep disorders, and migraines. Most people who undergo these training programs report that from very early on in the program the quality of their sleep has improved. The research shows that to get the optimal amount of benefit from these programs it takes a total of 30 sessions which is about 20 hours in total. The team at Neurocore suggests to most of their customers that they do either two or three sessions each week which they see as the optimal pace.
