How Does IASIS Microcurrent Neurofeedback Work?

We proudly serve the Boise, Meridian and Eagle areas of Idaho


The older style of neurofeedback, called Operant Conditioning, trains the brain where is is dysregulated. That’s a fancy way of saying that the brain is rewarded for doing the correct pattern and is deprived of a reward for doing the wrong pattern. This takes a long time, but can be very effective. It treats the effects of a faulty pattern in the brain. 

IASIS Microcurrent Neurofeedback “UN-TRAINS” the faulty pattern in the autoneuroregulatory part of the brain where the faulty pattern starts instead of the effects of the faulty pattern. That’s a fancy way of saying, “The place where it started to begin with instead of where the effects are felt!” 

The older style of neurofeedback presents problems when trying to do sessions with younger kids because they have to sit still for an entire half-hour session. And, kids younger than six years old were almost impossible to treat! 

IASIS Microcurrent Neurofeedback is so safe it can be done on newborn infants (traumatic births)! 

Small electrodes are stuck to the scalp in different spots (according to different protocols) and pulses of normal brainwaves (you cannot feel the actual electricity because it is 3 TRILLIONTHS of a Watt) are sent into the appropriate areas of the brain! This normalizes the balance between the “fight or flight” and “rest/digest/heal” parts of the autonomic nervous system. 

This brings people out of “Sympathetic Freeze” so that the part of the brain that heals, digests, brings normal sleep and helps you feel joyful and good, to turn back on so that you will, once again, have both systems!  

Although the best results happen over several sessions, sometimes positive results happen really quickly and we get to hear things like, “Wow! I feel so relaxed!” Or, “Wow! I feel like I smoked a joint!” Yes, people have really said that! LOL! 

Your best results will happen over 10-20 sessions. Most people opt for the 2o session package that we have because, once they have the results they desire, they know they can come in periodically and get a “tune-up” when the stressors of life happen!
