WHY IS BOSTON NEURODYNAMICS DIFFERENT?
Here at Boston NeuroDynamics we are a culturally diverse group and take pride in our highly individualized and holistic approach to brain training.
We combine neurofeedback, biofeedback, talk therapy, and many other modalities to help you achieve your goals. Our brain mapping includes a qEEG, ERP, and questionnaires you will fill out to understand the whole picture. We then use this to work together to create an individual plan.
Boston NeuroDynamics has an incredible team of clinicians and associates that are here to support you on your journey. Read more about us and our team here.
WHAT IS THE PROCESS OF NEUROFEEDBACK?
Neurofeedback is a process with a few different steps. We start off with a brain mapping and questionnaires. Then together, we use that information to develop a plan, which can include neurofeedback, biofeedback, therapy, and more. The neurofeedback sessions themselves are based on real time feedback to help train your brain. Because neurofeedback is a learning process, it takes time for your brain to learn and we are constantly checking in, re-evaluating, and modifying our plan.
WHAT IS THE BRAIN MAPPING (QEEG)?
Brain mapping is our first step in Neurofeedback training. A qEEG, or Quantitative Electroencephalography, is an assessment where we record the electrical activity of the brain (EEG) from 19 locations on the scalp. This is non-invasive, passive and just a listening device that records the electrical activity of the brain. We then compare this to a “normal” data set to determine what areas of the brain and what activity we want to train.

DO I NEED NEUROFEEDBACK, THERAPY OR BOTH?
It depends! Our philosophy at Boston NeuroDynamics is one helps the other – they work synergistically. Please contact us to find out what would work best for you!

HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?
As of January 1, 2021, our prices have changed. Please contact us to hear about our pricing – including discounts for combining brain mapping & neurofeedback, working with a student intern, and the early bird registration for our training.
DOES INSURANCE COVER NEUROFEEDBACK?
That depends on your insurance company and plan. We are considered out-of-network providers, which means you pay us upfront and then get reimbursed through your insurance company if they cover the services. Please contact us and we would be happy to provide you with the insurance codes to check!
DO I NEED A REFERRAL FROM MY DOCTOR?
You do not need a referral from your doctor to work with us. However, if you are working with a therapist, psychologist, psychiatrist, or neurologist we will often communicate with them (under your consent) to make sure we help you in the best possible way.
