Neurocore Brain Performance Centres have been committed and reliable in providing aid to many characterized by ADHD, anxiety, and depression. Neurocore got established in 2004 by Dr. Tim Royer who previously worked at Helen DeVos Children’s Hospital as a neuropsychologist.
In Grandville, Neurocore clinic’s therapy area patients are filled having electrodes on their heads and ears to graph their brain, heart and breathing waves as they watch a movie.
According to Rochelle Fintelman Neurocore clinical specialist, the clinic uses neurofeedback and a brain teaching program with a biofeedback mix as therapy. Which is teaching technology charting patients’ brain activity and how to breathe deeply respectively. A patient’s movie plays uninterrupted when their brain activity is balanced and calm and pauses or shrinks if imbalanced, with time the brain recognizes the pauses and rectifies the brain’s wave.
Neurofeedback has been praised by many for being a useful technique for overcoming depression, stress, and ADHD. As a result focus and attention improves while eliminating other undesirable symptoms like stress. Worth acknowledging is that this technique does not require drugs.
Rising concern was the use of Ten20 paste which is a topically applied cream used to prep the head and earlobes to facilitate placement of the electrode. The cream was critiqued to be carcinogenic. However, remarks of Nick Bolhuis Director of Clinical Operations at Neurocore clarified the concern and confirmed that it was not carcinogenic. By stating that various medical institutions used ten20 cream and the reported side effect was slight skin irritation or drying for those with sensitive skin. He also said that an alternate paste could be offered in such a situation though it rarely occurs.
