Pilot Study

At Ashland Neurofeedback, we use IASIS Micro Current Neurofeedback (MCN) a state-of-the-art technology that helps your brain dis-entrain stuck patterns. Here are some commonly asked questions about MCN.

What does it do?

IASIS MCN helps the brain to achieve a healthier state by retraining the brain and nervous system using low intensity energy pulses. The pulses amount to less energy than holding a cell phone to the ear.

How does it work?

The tiny pulses disrupt stuck patterns in the brain.  The result is a changed brainwave state and much greater ability for the brain and nervous system to self-regulate.

Will it affect my good qualities?

Only frozen, stuck patterns are affected.  Healthy functional brainwave patterns are flexible and resilient.  When there is a tiny fluctuation they automatically return to healthy patterns.

Who can it help?

Military, players of impact sports, anyone wishing to train their brains. Children and adults.

What evidence do you have?

A picture is worth a thousand words.  A world-renowned team led by Dr. Huang at UC San Diego documented improved brainwave states with sophisticated brain images after only 12 sessions of MCN.  Post-concussive symptoms were reduced or even eliminated altogether following their MCN sessions. MCN can easily be added to any post-concussion protocol.

What does this mean for someone who has had a concussion?

The people in the research study reported improvement in:  headaches, insomnia, anxiety, sensitivity to light, smoking, memory, stuttering, focus, concentration, frustration, etc. Reports of improvement matched the improvements in images of the brain.

Is it safe?

Yes.  In the first few sessions, as the brain begins to rebalance, a client may experience temporary feelings of being tired, wired, etc., usually resolving in a few minutes or hours.

Is this something that can be used now?

Yes, more than 100,000 clients have used MCN.  The risk-reward scenario is compelling due to the safety and effectiveness of MCN. Many begin to see improvement in the first 3 sessions.

How long has MCN been around?

Similar versions have been around for about 15 years.

IASIS MCN is used as a stand-alone intervention or as an adjunct to therapy. Please call Suzanne Mark at (541) 631-8757 with questions.  It would be an honor to train your brain
