Similar to physical training, Neurofeedback is a gradual training process working toward optimal mental functioning in 10-30 sessions. It is helpful at the beginning to train twice a week for 10 sessions, and then either continue at twice per week or taper to once per week. Once the brain is re-trained, the effects are long lasting. Occasionally, one might encounter an extremely stressful period or have a trauma that will be helped by a few tune-up sessions.
Medical insurance does not cover Neurofeedback. However, by not having to hire extra billing personnel, the rates are very reasonable compared to other types of therapy. Training sessions are $70/individual session or can be discounted in packages of five sessions: the first package is $300; the second package of 5 sessions is $275; the third package and beyond is $250. For those who can pair up and come 2 at the same appointment time, the packages of 5 sessions are $200/person. It is an invaluable investment in mind/body healing and growth for yourself, family and loved ones.
Every brain is different. So it all depends on how your brain reorganizes itself. Usually between 8-10 sessions there will be changes that you can feel but 15-20 sessions on average will reinforce the changes to last long term. Just like learning anything new, repetition cements the understanding.
