What to Expect with Neurofeedback

Maggie Roney LPC

The quality of our mental health will affect every area of our lives whether we realize it or not. Not only from how we feel but also how we process everything happening around us. 

At one time or another, we all grapple with mental exhaustion, seasons of depression, difficulty focusing or remembering important things, and the list goes on. Not only are these experiences nerve-wracking, they can impede on relationships, physical health, and living our life to the fullest. In this article, I will share ways in which neurofeedback can help reset our brains to operate in an optimal way and what you can expect from exploring this treatment option.

What is Neurofeedback

Neurofeedback is a revolutionary brain training technology that has demonstrated considerable promise in improving mental health and cognitive functions. By providing real-time feedback, neurofeedback teaches individuals to self-regulate brain activity, facilitating improvements in various psychological conditions and cognitive abilities.

Essential Concepts of IASIS Micro Current Neurofeedback

IASIS Micro Current Neurofeedback focuses on the principle of resetting the brain’s dysfunctional rhythm. The electroencephalograph (EEG)  measures electrical activity and dominant brain rhythm.  The information is sent to the IASIS machine and is calibrated with an offset signal with the dominant brain rhythm. The signal returns to the electrodes using only 3 picowatts of energy, which is 1/ 1 millionth of your cell phone.  

This technique targets brain areas and frequencies that are in a dysfunctional rhythm. For example, frequencies can be adjusted to improve focus in those with ADHD or to reduce anxiety levels.

Benefits of IASIS Micro Current Neurofeedback

IASIS Micro Current Neurofeedback offers multiple benefits, which vary from cognitive enhancements to mental health improvements. Some of the notable benefits include:

  1. Cognitive Enhancement: Improved attention, memory, and decision-making skills are significant benefits noted by users of neurofeedback, aiding in both academic and professional development.
  2. Mental Health Relief: It has shown effectiveness in managing conditions such as anxiety, depression, PTSD, and other stress-related disorders. As noted in Maggie Roney’s insightful article on “How Neurofeedback Relieves Stress”, neurofeedback has been instrumental in alleviating stress by modifying brain wave patterns associated with stress responses.
  3. Better Sleep Patterns: Regulating brain waves also assists in normalizing sleep cycles, which is beneficial for individuals experiencing insomnia or other sleep issues.
  4. Reduction of ADHD Symptoms: Neurofeedback is highly recognized for its role in reducing symptoms of ADHD, enhancing concentration, and diminishing impulsivity.

The Procedure of IASIS Micro Current Neurofeedback Sessions

During a neurofeedback session, electrodes are placed on the scalp to measure brain activity. With IASIS Micro Current Neurofeedback, the client is allowed to sit and relax and is allowed to draw, write, or listen to music. Electrodes are placed in certain places on the scalp and treatment begins.

Scientific Foundation of Neurofeedback

The concept underlying neurofeedback is “neuroplasticity,” the brain’s ability to reorganize itself by forming new neural connections. This adaptability allows the brain to adjust activities toward more beneficial patterns. Research supports that with consistent practice, neurofeedback can effectuate long-term changes in brain functions.

Important Considerations

While neurofeedback shows considerable promise, it is essential to understand that everyone experiences different levels of results. The unique value of IASIS Micro Current Neurofeedback is that the treatment builds on itself with each session.  The important key is consistency and understanding that each person’s brain is different and therefore each person’s treatment will vary.  

Results can be seen in as little as 1 session but typically are found after sessions 5-8, and the amount of sessions needed is individually determined.


IASIS Micro Current Neurofeedback represents a significant advance in mental health treatment, offering a method to train the brain towards higher efficiency and better mental health. Before starting treatment, it is vital to consult healthcare professionals to determine if neurofeedback is the appropriate treatment.
