A Natural Treatment for Depression

Depression is an extremely complex disease, so much so that doctors and researchers are not able to pinpoint exactly what causes it. While for some people, a life-altering situation such as the death of a loved one can trigger depression, for others there is no obvious reason for the onset of depression.

The brain is responsible for our thoughts, our emotions, and our behaviors. Different parts of the brain talk to one another by transmitting electrical signals along neurons that connect one area of the brain to another. These signals are called neuronal oscillations, or brainwaves. We have learned that the brainwaves we are exhibiting control how we feel, not the other way round.

When our brain waves are not optimal, or are out of balance, there can also be exhibited a neuro-physical imbalance, which manifests itself as depression.

Neurofeedback as a Depression Treatment

To change the way we feel, to eliminate the symptoms of depression, we must change the instabilities in our brain to help it function optimally. This can be achieved by medication, or by non-invasive, non-medicinal treatment such as neurofeedback—brainwave training. Neurofeedback, also called biofeedback or neurotherapy is one of the most efficient ways to teach people how to help themselves. Brain retraining has been used for many years with solid, proven results.

We have helped many clients end the emotional roller coaster of depression, and get their life back.

Before and After Treatment
neurotherapy-for- -

When treating disorders such as depression, all neurofeedback training begins with the same initial information gathering—from nineteen specific sites on the head using painless, non-invasive sensors. Once the neurofeedback practitioner has gathered a benchmark of current brainwave activity, they can determine what needs to be changed within the brain in order to reduce the symptoms of depression.  The patient learns to train the brain to operate more efficiently by responding to visual feedback - for example, a screen that darkens and lightens as brainwave patterns change - to create self-regulation of brain waves.

Over the course of the treatments, neurofeedback creates permanent positive changes. Read more about the neurofeedback process.

Over the years, I sought professional help from one doctor or therapist to the next, I even gave hypnotism a try on a few occasions to unlock these gripping side effects of my head injuries. They were all dead ends. I was regularly on and off different medications for depression and anxiety. The side effects from the medications were worse than the battle with depression and anxiety. I gave up.
Then, I was introduced to Dannelle. I learned that she was working with people suffering from physical and emotional issues using something I had never heard of called Neurofeedback therapy, it sparked my interest. She is so informative, and willing to offer her thoughts and always willing to listen and answer questions. Her patience and passion for her work is immeasurable. She is thorough and well prepared and her confidence in her ability is easy to see and the therapy program worked beyond my wildest expectations. I highly recommend her “A+” therapy and her personal skills.

My son, Zayden had Neurotherapy last year for his ADHD at ONS. It really worked on his focus and attention span! He has done so well in Middle School. He couldn't have done it without this! Dannelle is very good at what she does and such a sweetheart! I recommend 100%!!

I truly believe Dannelle and Neurofeedback saved me from my slump.

She is also a perfect counselor, guiding me through life’s road blocks and speed bumps. Never before have I received advice that makes perfect sense when told. She actually knows, what you’re facing and draws out a plan to tackle self-worth.

It’s hard to even write this as my former lack of motivation seems eons ago. Equally as important, my cognitive abilities have been resurrected from the dead, which are very important at a television reporter. I no longer forget words and am no longer frustrated with mind fog.

I’ve met a lot of professionals in this field, and Dannelle one is the best.”

Depression Treatment Timeline

For informational purposes only. Individual Depression treatment plans may vary.

45-60 minutes

Initial Depression Treatment Consultation

We meet and discuss your or your child’s case details and suggest a tailored depression treatment plan specific to your scenario.

60-90 minutes

Testing and First Treatment

In the first depression treatment session we test the brainwave patterns using a sophisticated EEG equipment and establish a baseline. Imbalances are recorded and a specific course of at home depression treatment is established. Patient receives neurofeedback equipment to take home in order to proceed with depression treatments from the comfort of their own home which saves both time and costs from a more traditional strictly in-clinic approach.

10-12 weeks

In-Home Neurofeedback Training

Patients conduct in home neurofeedback training with equipment provided by the ONS team, 4-5 times per week. It takes approximately 40 minutes to conduct the neurofeedback training for best results.

Post Training

Final Review and Retest

This in-clinic session will retest the new brainwave patterns to confirm depression treatment effectiveness. Most clients will already see the results first hand in changes prior to the retest.
