Neurofeedback is catching on in the Rogue Valley! What is all the excitement about? Dr. Daniel Sternberg, a licensed psychologist, and his wife and business partner, Suzanne Mark, opened Ashland Neurofeedback and Therapy in March of 2016 to address many issues quickly and efficiently with Microcurrent Neurofeedback and other customized approaches. As an early adapter of power therapies such as EMDR in the treatment of PTSD, depression, anxiety, relationship issues, etc., Daniel has added neurofeedback to help clients heal faster and with less intervention.
Suzanne and Daniel researched neurofeedback as a complement to therapy, which led them to a kind of neurofeedback that works more quickly on many conditions. The reason for its success? Microcurrent. IASIS MCN (Micro Current Neurofeedback) is a ground-breaking, dynamic, non-invasive and highly effective technology now being researched at University of California at San Diego (UCSD). Researchers there are studying the effects of IASIS treatment/training on Marines with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and mild to moderate Traumatic Brain Injury (mTBI). The preliminary study has been very promising.
After a head injury in 2009, Suzanne suffered with symptoms that she was unable to fully overcome. “Neurofeedback gave me my life back, so I am really committed to helping others. Daniel and I are inspired to help people by helping the brain change itself. The new studies in neuroplasticity are very encouraging. Your brain has the capacity to heal itself with the right tools. We have had personal experiences of this, as have our clients. It is very inspiring.”
It is not the goal of IASIS to intentionally treat symptoms. This is really an “un-training” that trains away the neurological stuck spots that correlate to many conditions.
When you come to us as a prospective client, we do a thorough assessment and discuss your goals for treatment. We suggest a treatment plan based on how quickly you want to move, and together we continually re-evaluate your treatment as it progresses. You have an active role in assessing the changes that are happening and the goals that you are meeting. This is an important part of the process. As you observe and reflect the changes that are happening for you, it reinforces them.
Suzanne teaches classes on emotional releasing at OLLI. “Daniel and I use a releasing protocol to help people let go of the emotional patterns that cause suffering. Since 1985, we have taught 1,000’s of people to let go of emotions and limiting beliefs to access the strength and peace within. These techniques are a great adjunct to neurofeedback.”
