Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS)

TMS uses magnetic fields are the same type and strength in a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) machine. These magnetic fields are applied to the head above the left prefrontal cortex. This part of the brain is involved with mood regulation. As these magnetic fields move into the brain, they produce very small electrical currents. These electrical currents activate cells within the brain which are thought to release neurotransmitters like serotonin, norepinephrine, and dopamine. Since depression is thought to be the result of an imbalance of these chemicals in the brain, TMS can restore that balance and, thus, relieve depression.   LEARN MORE >>

Neurofeedback Therapy

Neurofeedback is a scientifically proven way to improve the way you feel and function in the world by improving how your brain operates. It is a noninvasive, organic process that does not change who you are. Through real time brain monitoring and targeted “rewards” when your brain executes the desired function, new connections are created.    LEARN MORE >>

Vielight (Photobiomodulation)

Photobiomodulation is essentially using light waves (low level red or infrared) to trigger a reaction in our cells. Using an intranasal light (light shining into the nasal passage), we are able to stimulate the production of ATP (energy) in our brain cells to use for repair and healing. Each session lasts between 20-25 minutes, depending on the device being used. Many patients respond in as little as one week, while others may take significantly longer to see noticeable results in their overall wellness. LEARN MORE >>

Psychopharmacology

Although medication remains one of the more common avenues for treatment, we see it more as a small piece of the larger picture. At the Brain Wellness Center, it is our belief that one size does not fit all and that something as complex as the human brain cannot be treated effectively by using one method only. We discuss all aspects of the data gained through our assessment of the client and make a well informed decision about medication. Once medication is prescribed, the client’s progress is continuously monitored via brain mapping, and adjusted if necessary. LEARN MORE >>
