After 28 Neurofeedback sessions my son is off his medication for ADHD

My 12 year old son was taking Ritalin for the past 2.5 years because he had ADHD. 28 neurofeedback sessions later his Conner's test is normal and he is off his medication. I can hardly believe it! I recommend neurofeedback and Dr. Kuhn's office to everyone I know. Thank you Dr. Kuhn.

What is Neurofeedback?

Neurofeedback is a non-invasive and safe treatment approach which has been proven to be effective in treating a wide range of conditions associated with brain dysfunction in most cases.

Abnormal brainwave patterns are usually associated with local areas of dysfunction and impairment in the connection and communication between brain regions. Their specific location is associated with specific dysfunctions like memory, attention or executive functions, tinnitus etc. and they are found in a wide range of psychiatric and neurological disorders (e.g. stroke, concussion, learning disability) as well as in the undiagnosed ‘normal’ population where people experience certain deficits (e.g. anxiety, insomnia, depression).

What is Neurofeedback Good For?

Research has shown that Neurofeedback improves many conditions including (A-Z):

  • ADD / ADHD
  • Anxiety and Panic Disorders
  • Asperger Syndrome
  • Autism
  • Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
  • Chronic Pain
  • Conduct Disorders
  • Depression
  • Eating Disorders

My anxiety has decreased significantly and I feel like a new person

I've suffered from anxiety for years and nothing helped except for medication. Until now... I've been doing neurofeedback twice a week for 3 months and I've noticed a huge reduction in my anxiety. And I'm sleeping better than I can remember. I cannot tell you how much better I feel.

Thank you, Dr. Kuhn!

After getting in a mild fender bender I was feeling dizzy and had the wost headache for weeks. I did not feel right, though doctors at the hospital said I was fine. Dr. Kuhn diagnosed me with a mild traumatic brain injury and treated me with neurofeedback. I look forward to my weekly sessions because they are the only thing that gets rid of my headaches and help me to function better.

Get the Most Advanced Neurofeedback Training

Depending on your symptoms and condition, Dr Kuhn will prescribe the most effective type of Neurofeedback currently available so that you can benefit from your Neurofeedback sessions as quickly as possible and feel well again.

Surface Neurofeedback

Surface neurofeedback utilizes 2-4 sensors, which are placed on the scalp to train brainwaves.  Examples include Sensorimotor Rhythm (SMR) training as well as Alpha/Theta training. Training SMR amplitudes in the brain has been proven effective to treat restlessness, inattention, and seizures.  Alpha/Theta training enhances the ratio of Theta waves to Alpha waves to produce a deep, relaxed state and is an effective treatment for traumatic stress, and insomnia.

Z-Score Neurofeedback

Z-Score neurofeedback compares one’s brainwaves against the NeuroGuide peer-reviewed, age-normalized database to better-assess the degree of brain imbalance. This way the training can take into account over and under activation as well as hyper- and hypo-connectivity and train the brain in the direction it needs to go in to achieve optimal levels.

LORETA Neurofeedback

Low-Resolution Brain Electromagnetic Tomography (LORETA) neurofeedback utilizes 19 EEG channels in a cap. Taking into account one’s presenting symptoms as well as the results of the QEEG and other neuropsych tests, LORETA NF allows for the targeting and training of 3-dimensional locations deep within the brain including the ability to target relevant Broadmann areas and functional networks.

Data-Driven Neurofeedback

Before starting Neurofeedback training, Dr. Kuhn will order the following tests and assessments which will help guide the neurofeedback training and set a baseline for your brain function.

These tests and assessments allow us to link your symptoms to the areas in your brain responsible for those symptoms so that Dr. Kuhn can create an individualized, highly targeted neurofeedback treatment protocol for you. This improves treatment outcomes and reduces treatment duration.


The QEEG is a statistical modification of the conventional EEG that greatly enhances its ability to detect brain dysfunction. The results from a QEEG brain mapping help determine regions of interest to target with Neurofeedback.

IntegNeuro Battery

The IntegNeuro Battery of cognitive function tests provides a neuropsychological assessment of brain dysfunction to guide treatment protocols. It utilizes a focussed and
researched set of tools designed to provide meaningful diagnostic information to the
clinician about sensorimotor, attentional, memory, executive planning, emotions and
aspects of language function as well as social cognition. Repeat administrations allow for re-assessment to gauge progress and improvements.

Continuous Performance Test

The Conner’s Continuous Performance Test measures attention-related problems in individuals aged eight years and older. By indexing the respondent’s performance in areas of inattentiveness, impulsivity, sustained attention, and vigilance, the CPT can aid in the assessment of Attention-Deficit/Hyperactive Disorder (ADHD) and other neurological conditions related to attention.

Physician Endorsements for Neurofeedback

The American Academy of Pediatrics has endorsed Neurofeedback as a “Level 1/Best Support” for children with ADHD, the same rating as stimulant medication.

“The literature, which lacks any negative study of substance, suggests that EEG biofeedback therapy should play a major therapeutic role in many difficult areas. In my opinion, if any medication had demonstrated such a wide spectrum of efficacy, it would be universally accepted and widely used (Clinical Electroencephalography, 2000).”

– Frank Duffy, MD, Neurologist, Head of the Neuroimaging Department and of Neuroimaging Research at Boston’s Children’s Hospital and Harvard Medical School Professor

“In my 38 years of practice, I have never seen any treatment that comes close to producing the results that Neurofeedback offers… I have seen results achieved in days and weeks that previously took months and years to achieve, using the best methods available to us.”

– Jack Woodward, MD, Board Certified Psychiatrist

“This is a unique use of neurofeedback. It has been used for helping with a number of conditions such as attention deficit disorder and epilepsy, but this is the first time it has been used to improve a complex set of skills such as musical performance in healthy students.”

Researchers from Imperial College London and Charing Cross Hospital have discovered a way to help musicians improve their musical performances by an average of up to 17 per cent, equivalent to an improvement of one grade or class of honours. The research published in this months edition of Neuroreport, shows that using a process known as neurofeedback, students at London’s Royal College of Music were able to improve their performance across a number of areas including their musical understanding and imagination, and their communication with the audience.

– Dr. Tobias Egner, from Imperial College London at Charing Cross Hospital, one of the authors of the study

“EEG biofeedback [Neurofeedback] meets the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry criteria for clinical guideline (CG) for treatment of ADHD, seizure disorders, anxiety (OCD, GAD, PTSD, phobias), depression, reading disabilities, and addictive disorders. This suggests that EEG biofeedback should always be considered as an intervention for these disorders.”

– Child and Adolescent Psychiatric Clinics of North America

“EEG biofeedback [Neurofeedback], in the long term management of ADHD providing a sustained effect even without stimulant treatment… Parents interested in non-psychopharmacologic treatment can pursue the use of complementary and alternative therapy. The therapy most promising by recent clinical trials appears to be EEG biofeedback.”

– Katie Campbell Daley, M.D., Department of Medicine, Children’s Hospital Boston and in the Department of Pediatrics of the Harvard Medical School.

“Among the newer approaches to managing ADD, the most exciting is a learning process called Neurofeedback. It empowers a person to shift the way he pays attention. After more than twenty-five years of research in university labs, Neurofeedback has become more widely available. This is a pleasing development, because Neurofeedback has no negative side effects.”

– William Sears, M.D. Author of “The A.D.D. Book.”

“It [Neurofeedback] improves seizures, depression, low self-esteem or congenital head injuries, and it helps the ‘craziness’ that often comes with these…Patients report they sleep better, they don’t have seizures, they are more in control, and that they get more work done. It helps with closed head injury patients. It helps with chronic neurologic disease, where there is no active injury but there are problems with normal functioning. We’ve had success with multiple sclerosis, with toxic encephalopathy (for example, chemical poisoning interfering with neurologic functioning), with chronic pain, migraines and fibromyalgia. And of course, we get very good results with ADD.”

– Jonathan Walker, M.D. Neurologist, Dallas, TX

“In my experience with EEG Biofeedback [Neurofeedback] and ADD, many people are able to improve their reading skills and decrease their need for medication. Also, EEG Biofeedback has helped to decrease impulsivity and aggressiveness. It is a powerful tool, in part because the patient becomes part of the treatment process by taking more control over his own physiological processes.”

– Daniel Amen, M.D. CEO and Medical Director, Amen Clinics, Inc., Author of “Change Your Brain, Change Your Life.”

“Traumatic brain injuries constitute significant health and societal problems which can be ameliorated with some recent developments in neurofeedback. The field of neurofeedback has evolved from single channel to multiple-site training, and with LORETA Z-score training, deeper levels of the brain can reached. Neurofeedback for traumatic brain injury patients may provide improvements never before possible.”
