Neurofeedback May Ease Depression without Medication

Feeling depressed can be a normal reaction to loss, life stresses and struggles, or a harmed self-esteem. But when feelings of intense sadness (including feeling helpless, hopeless, and worthless) last for weeks or months, and they keep a person from functioning normally, it may indicate clinical depression. This is a serious, but treatable, medical condition.

Galveston Brain Changers does not diagnose depression or other disorders, but they use brain mapping to assess the electrical activity of the brain to help determine where and how impaired brain function may be adding to symptoms. This allows them to develop treatment protocols to improve brain function to help the client become more relaxed and focused without medication. This non-invasive method provides lasting results.

Owner Dr. Stephanie McClung says, “Brain Changers practices a holistic approach to improved health, and neurofeedback has been scientifically proven to improve brain function by increasing the body’s ability to relax and focus more clearly. Once the brain is more balanced, healthier thinking and behavior can be accessed.

 Besides depression, neurofeedback can positively influence symptoms of many other disorders, including anxiety, migraines, and rage or anger issues. It can also improve focus and attention, sleep, feelings of well-being, and academic or athletic performance.
