First Mobile Neurofeedback Therapy Service Available in California

Busy executives avoid burn-out with location-flexible neurofeeback therapy

Beverly Hills, Calif. (December 8, 2010) – Mindy Fox, one of the leading neurofeedback therapists in California, announced today her neurofeedback therapy service is now available to be administered in the comfort of a patient’s home or office.  Fox’s latest move to provide the convenience of a mobile service will improve results for patients whose schedules interfere with regular treatment. The largest benefactors in Fox’s practice are made up of busy executives, stay-at-home parents and those who are otherwise too physically or mentally challenged to make it to Fox’s office on a regular basis.

“Neurofeedback therapy requires a routine schedule of administration for optimal results. However, given today’s unpredictable and busy life style, patients find it difficult to find and dedicate the time,” said Mindy Fox, LMFT based in Los Angeles, California. “Missing several appointments can lead to lesser results and patients fall further behind in the healing process. This unfortunately common scenario can create overall discouragement.”

Over the past two years, Fox’s practice experienced an uptick in patients who were c-level executives. Most sought to combat quickly increasing levels of stress and anxiety. “This group of patients not only wanted to treat the sudden over whelming amounts of stress and anxiety they were experiencing, they also wanted to improve their overall performance and longevity – or avoid burn out if you will,” said Fox.

Fox decided to eliminate the biggest factor that prevented patients from optimal results – lack of time.  Fox requires patients to stick to a regular appointment schedule, but patients can choose where they would like that appointment to take place – saving at least an hour of drive time on average. When asked about the most common location request, Fox said “most patients spend their days at the office so this is a logical choice for most.” However, Fox does stipulate that the space a patient chooses must allow the patient to relax and focus without distractions.

Santa Monica Neurofeedback Therapist, Mindy Fox, Treats Sciatica

Numerous requests for relief from sciatica drive neurofeedback treatment in Santa Monica practice

Santa Monica, Calif. (August 11, 2011) – Mindy Fox, a highly regarded neurofeedback therapist in Southern California, announced today that her practice continues its rapid growth due to demand from pain brought on by sciatica. The growth is an indicator of market demand for alternative, natural and safe treatment for pain related conditions.
In many cases, relief from sciatica using neurofeedback can be significant.  In one recent case, a female client who has long suffered said that on a scale of 1 to 10, her pain went from a 7 down to a 2 in three sessions.  Although research studies do not exist to support this treatment, many clients have little choice.  According to Henrik Weber, M.D., “Elective surgery is the main option for unilateral sciatica and focuses on removal of the underlying cause by removing disk herniation and eventually part of the disc.”  (1983). “Lumbar disc herniation. A controlled, prospective study with ten years of observation”. Spine 8 (2): 131–140.  According to England’s National Health Service, medications do little to relieve the pain and causes of sciatica.

“Our practice has expanded into unexpected areas, such as treatment of sciatica,” said Mindy Fox, LMFT and Santa Monica neurofeedback therapist. “Many patients who we treat are at the end of their rope.  They do not want to have surgery, but the pain caused by the sciatic nerves has left them with a lower quality of life than they are willing to accept.”
Instead of going under the knife, neurofeedback therapy is completely non-invasive and has no lasting side effects.  “Think of it as exercise for the brain,” said Fox. “Neurofeedback therapy strengthens the performance of your brain, so with a little encouragement, it heals itself and returns back to homeostasis.”
Neurofeedback therapy retrains the brain, helping it remember how to deal with nerve pain and more, and can lead to a more relaxed yet alert state of being. Electrodes are placed on the head, and the patient plays a video game or watches a movie or a peaceful scene, depending on their preference. After several sessions, the brain begins to shift itself into a more resilient state.   This allows one’s brain to achieve a healthy state of arousal during stressful situations and even extend its range of normal functioning for improved performance.
Neurofeedback therapy is completely non-invasive. Some patients will see results within a few sessions, but it’s recommended they complete 20 sessions, with three sessions per week. Neurofeedback therapy is a highly individualized treatment that must be tailored to meet every client’s specific needs.

Attention Deficit Disorder

Posted on: March 26th, 2014 by admin No Comments

Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) is a serious disorder that causes:  Short attention span, disorganization, distractibility, poor follow-through, reduction of resistance to disease, and even reduced life span.  If untreated, secondary effects of ADD include Depression and Anxiety.

It is a brain disorder described as “low-arousal.”  What that means is that hyperactive children are not very awake or aware of what is going on around them, so they move around a lot to wake up.  Their brain is operating too slowly.  A person can be aware of surroundings, more in control, more able to think, reason, and communicate and live with happier relationships if their brain can wake up.  That is why Ritalin and other stimulants seem to help a person with this disorder.

Drugs can be harmful and sometimes even dangerous with only temporary improvement.

Neurofeedback is an effective NON-DRUG TREATMENT for ADD & ADHD.

ADD is a complex disorder affecting 6 to 10% of the population.  It disrupts the home, work and school environment.  People with ADD have trouble finishing tasks like homework, relating to others, being belligerent or antagonizing, being organized, and interrupting.

Neurofeedback is exercise for the brain, which can improve self-regulation.

Neurofeedback is  safe and effective for adults, adolescents and children.
