The Neurocore Brain Performance Center describes Neurofeedback therapy as a safe and effective drug-free treatment. Dr. Tim Royer was a former neuropsychologist who worked at the Helen DeVos Children’s Hospital when in 2004 he founded Neurocore. Neurofeedback is used to address conditions like ADHD, PTSD, depression, anxiety, autism and memory loss diseases.
They specialize in Neurofeedback and brain mapping. Neurocore has mapped over 10,000 brains and has performed over 40,000 Neurofeedback sessions. Using Neurofeedback address the main source of ADHD and other conditions, which is the brain. Neurocore also believes in helping heal the brain in children and adults so that they can sustain a better life.
In the case of the ADHD disorder, unfortunately, it is very prevalent in the U.S. in children ages 4 to 17. A majority of the kids that have been diagnosed are only prescribed medications. By using Neurofeedback as a therapy treatment, it has helped people to stop taking long-term medications.
Neurofeedback at Neurocore works as an award system for the brain. Electrodes are connected to each patient’s ears and head. A movie is shown on a screen. When the brain is in balance, the movie continues to play.
However, when the movie pauses, the brain instantly recognizes that something is wrong. Patients are taught how to breathe through it in a combination of Biofeedback and Neurofeedback techniques. When the movie starts up again, the brain becomes less stimulated and becomes balanced again.
Over time, the brain recognizes the pausing process and starts to correct the brain wave activity. The Fox 17 news channel of West Michigan interviewed Nick Bolhuis, the Neurocore Director of Clinical Operations regarding much of the biofeedback therapy treatments and a few online complaints.
For example, the Ten20 EEG Conductive Paste compound used to prep the earlobes and head in placement for the electrodes, is thought to contain carcinogens. Neurocore responded by stating that the Ten20 EEG paste is often used by hospitals and that there may be some slight skin irritations in persons allergic to its ingredients, but that the medical-grade paste is very safe.

Neurocore has never had a Better Business Bureau complaint. There are no dangers or negative side effects of neurofeedback therapy. It is an affordable treatment where patients pay only once unlike taking expensive drugs for the rest of your life. Neurocore is making a lasting difference in adult and children’s lives.
