Micro Current Neurofeedback (MCN) Treatment What May I Expect from My First Neurofeedback Treatment?
Application of Micro Current Neurofeedback
While seated, five lightweight EEG electrodes will be placed at different areas on your head and neck. The areas will first be cleaned off and then a conductive paste will be applied to hold the electrodes in place. The position of the electrodes may vary through the treatment and in subsequent treatments.
Time of Session & Protocols
The entire ‘brain training’ from start to finish will be around a half an hour after the initial 46-60 minute intro session. The level of electricity from the FDA Registered Iasis device is 1/100 of a AA battery over 1/100 of a second; people report not feel anything from the electrodes. According to Dr. Frank Shallenberger, Iasis MCN is even safe even for babies and pregnant women. There are 6 protocol settings and numerous different sensitivity levels that may be selected, depending on how fragile or hardy one’s nervous system is (which is assessed by the Iasis Certified Provider prior to the brain training), as well as how one responds during or after the session, at which time adjustments may be made.
Response to MCN Session
Some temporary reactivity of the nervous system in the 24 to 48 hours after the treatment may occur such as feelings of fatigue, spaciness, anxiousness, wired, headache or the temporary increase of a symptom. This is completely normal and will pass and may be expected. It is a sign that one is neuroregulating; and is a positive sign your brain and nervous system is responding. Even though it may be temporarily uncomfortable, it will not persist and will be followed by improvement. It is crucial to remember that reactivity is demonstrating that ‘something good is happening’ and that every subset of a reaction is a positive response.
MCN Observation Sheet
Your feedback 24 hours after every session by email called the ‘Observation Sheet’ is mandatory and helps us fine tune the treatment to ‘dial in’ what will be optimal for you. It is not always possible to predict who will have a stronger reaction, and again this is not a bad thing, it is your nervous system responding and in fact is seen as a very positive sign that change for the better is happening. Like anything in life, it is a process. Try to be patient with the journey. Suspend any disbelief and give yourself permission to allow yourself to simply observe any minute changes.
Please let us know if you do experience any unpleasant feelings, as we often suggest following up after such an occurrence with a brief gentle treatment to calm ones nervous system and help bring about homeostasis.
Ongoing MCN Sessions
As you improve and your treatments hold longer we will increase the time between treatments until they become enduringly sustainable until you no longer need treatment. Initially one may have 1-5 treatments per week. The higher the level of seriousness or acuity of your condition, your ICP will suggest a course of corresponding brain training. The total number of treatments will vary from person to person but a typical range would be 10 to 20 treatments, with recommendations for more being common with more fixed, longer standing conditions. Some people will notice changes in between 1-3 sessions while others may require more treatments before they notice a change.
What Patients Are Saying About Micro Current Neurofeedback (MCN)
"We've spent tens of thousands of dollars and tried everything - nothing's worked. He needs medication to sleep every night, is defiant in school and we were desperate. After the very first Iasis session, Konnor slept through the night without any medication. His teachers commented, "Konnor is helpful and attentive."KonnorAndrew Clark was an Army Paratrooper having served in Iraq who returned home with severe PTSD, TBI, anxiety and depression. After 10 years living as a "shut in," uncomfortable stepping foot on the world, he experienced Iasis MCN and it changed his life. Says Andrew Clark, "I'm back in the game...living life."Andrew
